Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
When I rotate the selector dial through the various cycles the drum spins and I get a partial agitation from the center cone. When the machine stopped it had just complted the rinse cycle and did not drain and there was an electrical odor and a small amount of smoke. The electric motor does run but the machine does seem to sequence through all the cycles.
LD is long drain error.
If there is a drain problem, the parts that must be checked are drain hose, pressure switch, drain pump assembly, timer control.
Check if the drain hose at the back is kinked or blocked.
Test the pressure switch, blow into the small hose, and use a multimeter to check if switch has continuity.
Remove access panel and get to the drain pump hose to check for ablockage. You will need to disconnect the hose and collect the water.
Keep a container ready to collect water when you undo pump hose.
Ifall the rest is OK, test and eventually replace timer board.Problemwith water pump are far more commonly causing this problemsthenfaulty timer board.
