SOURCE: My washer isn't getting cold

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

This is symptomatic of a malfunctioning cold water control valve. Sorry but it needs replacing and a service call to confirm that it is not something else- like the control board not feeding it the correct voltage ;-0(

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

SOURCE: my kenmore washer 80 series

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

SOURCE: my washer was flashing F21

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description specifically the door not unlocking combined with the F21 or as you stated "F21 & would not unlock" I'd suggest you check the pump filter and sub-components, i.e. back flow ball, drain hose etc.

Here's a link to my solution or explaination to guide you through checking these things. Typically this is associated with an error of F2, F21, or "suds" but not always.

http://www.fixya.com/support/r9090359-whirlpool_frontload_f2_f21_sd_suds

As for unlocking the door, it's a good idea to get the water out first, but in any event to do so is as follows...

Once you remove the service panel at the bottom, shown here (also shown in my "repair tip")....


macmarkus_775.jpg

...there is a manual latch release just below the lock latch assembly that you may be able to see visually or feel for by reaching up to the latch and pull the small "loop" below the lock...this is a image of what you'll be looking for.

Let me know how you make out or if anything is not clear and I'll try to help you moving forward in any manner I can. Good luck.

Please take a moment to rate the info and provide a testimony on my assistance and your experience here at FixYa.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

My whirlpool steam duet washer won't pour water in the wash cycle


There is no output from the control panel to switch on the inlet valve, so check the inlet valve at this time of the cycle. Also check the water level pressure sensor switch.
Choose another program to confirm if not the controller seems to be suspect.

Maytag_lse7804ace: washer won't fill with water. If I fill it by hand, the cycle works fine (until it gets to the rinse cycle, when it won't fill again).


Hello John,
The most probable reason the washer is not filling is because of a blown fuse that is part of the lid switch asm. By UNPLUGGING THE WASHER and removing the 2 INNER screws on the the control panel and the control panel can be rotated down to see the fuse in the lid switch asm. Here is where the fuse is on the switch asm. its circled in red 11_4_2011_1_39_54_am.jpg

Washer will not rinse on any cycle


Well if it won't rinse it won't pump out wither right? The pump is mounted on the motor. The motor won't pump or spin if the lid is open. I would check the lid switch
themobilian_3072.jpg
When this pump is going counterclockwise the water stays put. The machine agitates.
When time for rinse the motor goes opposite direction. If the lid is open the washer will not spin or pump out. I suspect you must have a lidswitch issue. Here is a video which shows how to check it without guessingthemobilian_3073.jpg

Maytag LSE7806ACE washer won't rinse. Machine fills with water and agitates, spins also. Just won"t rinse......help!!!!!!!


Your washer uses cold water only for the rinse cycle.
Start you washer and put the water temperature switch on 'cold' to see if you have any cold water.
If you find that there is no cold water then turn the water off and remove the cold water hose from the back of the washer.
Once you have the cold water hose removed you will be able to look in the water valve and check the screen. A lot of times the screens get plugged up and need to be cleaned. The screen will just pull out of the valve so you can rinse it out good.
Make sure to put the screen back in place.
If you have no cold water and the screen is clean then you will need to replace the water inlet valve.
