Re: whirlpool front loader

Please clarify the "some times throughs the switch" part...does the timing switch continue to run even though the machine stopped?

My whirlpool front loader wont final spin

Check door switch: If the lid switch is bad it will not drain or spin. Try this test: With lid open let it finish wash cycle. Press lid switch down with screwdriver. Washer should begin draining. Release switch. Motor should stop. Press switch a second time. Washer should start spinning as it continues to drain. If motor doesn't come on while lid switch is pressed, replace the switch. Or
Pl click if helped

My whirlpool amw8121 front loader won't spin. It

There should be a door-actuated limit switch which detects that the door is closed, which is probably defective. Look for the plunger, listen for the click. It is the most likely component to fail, and is inexpensive to replace if you're handy. Be sure to have your machine unplugged during repairs.

Our whirlpool front loader shows F33 error

F33 Leak. If after 30 seconds the control does not detect water entering machine, the valves will be turned off and the error code will be displayed. Check your inlet valves for block OR
If the control has turned the water valves on, and after 8 minutes, the flow sensor has detected 10.5 gallons of water passing through it, but has not detected the pressure switch trip, the valves will be turned off, and the error code will flash.

Press ‘pause’ and ‘cancel’ twice to clear the display. Mains off the wall.
1. Check for crack or holes in the washer tub and pressure switch

hose, which runs from the
bottom to the pressure switch.
2. Replace components if necessary.

Sites for spares: (which is good)

My washing machine works most of the time but sometimes i need to push the door really hard a few times to get the cycle to start. Today it broke down half way through cycle, got it going again then the...

Seems like the door switch is failing, or failed.
wpecially if a front loader, the door has to be closed, and register on the circuit as closed before the machine will start.
they are cheap and easy to replace, most of the time, but cant give instructions for an unknown whirlpool other than
take front panel off
replace door switch
replace front panel
