Question about Washing Machines
Whirlpool AWO 3771 - approx. 2-years old.
Socks keep working their way through the machine to the sump hose and filter, causing a blockage and leakage. Occasionally causes the dispenser hose to pop off either the drawer or drum end. becoming more frequent! This seems to happen more often than for anyone else I ask. Machine not overloaded and socks now in a mesh bag! Could there be a problem with the door seal, or the way the drum is mounted causing to big a gap - allowing clothes through too easily?

your condenser is blocked,you might be lucky and get away with just cleaning it, but most of the time it is just best to change it. You will have to take the back off again it is the plastic component with the fan motor attached, disconnect the 2 black tubes to it [note where they come from] unscrew the 3 bolts at the bottom , disconnect the wires going to the fan motor. If you are going to change the condensor you will have to take the fan motor off aswell MAKE SURE YOU DISCONNECT THE MACHINE FROM THE MAINS. GOOD LUCK

You can try to get them out yourself but not to sure, depends on where they are at. Small clothing items (like socks) usually get stuck in the rubber gasket. If you have not already check the rubber gasket really good and see if you find them. If they have gotten past that point probably not something you want to do yourself. They would be inbetween the inner and outer stainless steel drum. If you cant find them take care if you start the wash and leave, there have been a lot of reports of the socks working thier way over and blocking the water intake hose from the soap dispenser causing all the water to come out the front and on the floor. If you can find them and get them out the best fix is to get a large garment bag to keep all the small items together and from wandering off during the wash. Hope this helps and I hope they are just in the gasket and not inbetween the drums.

That is a common problem with the Whirpool duets. Small clothing articles, especially baby socks go through the drum lip to the drain pipe.
Best to buy a zip-up laundry bag and place all the small clothing items in there.
