Question about Whirlpool AWG320 Front Load Washer / Dryer

1 Answer

Washing time & quality

If I put wash programme 2 on for example, the programme is finished in 30 mins including a very short spin and the dial only goes to half way between 3 and 4. The clothes are not properly cleaned either. I thought that cotton washing cycles usually take 45 mins to 1 hour on normal machines. Has my machine got a fault or are the wash cycles supposed to be so short?

Have recently been given a Nextra by a friend. however, when switching the machine on it takes forever to work. example ... when i turn the dial to quick wash i have to keep turning the dial off & on...

The fault as seen is with the program timer controller and you might need to replace this unit. The rest of the washer seems to be in good shape and so your washing is perfect. So the timer does not move or contact into the program outputs with the movement.
Try to swap the unit before you invest in one so as to be fully confirmed. Make a note of the connections and double check before this is replaced.

What is erro code 6e on a samsung washing machine

Don"t worry too much about the error code, press pause, and then press pause again, the cycle should continue. If the counter does not countdown, ideally,as long as your washing is in the machine for 30-35 mins that should be ample time, then press pause and put your dial on the final cycle from rinse to spin, if this does not work, try picking a longer wash cycle, leave for 30-35 mins, then press pause and fast-track to your final stage of rinse to spin, Good Luck!
