SOURCE: washing machine leaks

Go to fixitnow.com to find out how to remove cabinet. If it's a big leak it's most likely a hose; if a little leak, more likely the pump. Both easy to replace once you have cabinet off.

First check the hoses to the machine. If they leak the water follows the hoses and drips on floor. Also check the hose connection at the washer. They will leak inside. Next it may well be a water pump going out or the plastic hose that is under pressure when operating. The pump is in the middle of machine underneth - Sorry - Good luck

The lid switch is likely bad. It should click when lid is opened and closed.

SOURCE: have a whirlpool AWO 3551 washing machine. Door

My daughter had the same problem for about two years. A repair man came out and told her to call the company and tell them she wanted it fixed under a recall. She said the computer board had to be replaced and it was recalled due to a flaw in the machine. The service man came back again after she called, and he fixed it for free.

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your post I understand you have a problem with a washer, further to that your description "it would fill and wash but at end of wash cycle would not shift to pump out, nor go to rinse cycle nor spin"
leads me to believe it is a faulty lid switch.

The scenario you describe is usually associated with a faulty or broke lid switch...but I don't know if you checked that yet or if you know how.

The lid switch failure is definitely a common problem with these models. Here`s how you can repair it pretty easily...or even just to gain access to check it.

( this is based on the most common Whirlpool, Estate, Kitchen-Aid, Roper, Kenmore, Inglis top-load washer, not necessarily applicable to ALL...but with your model number it will cover yours)

Here`s a helpful link for changing it out, though it will have subtle differences it is a good tutorial on accessing and changing the switch.

The lid switch will look like this...(if it is indeed a LSQ9549L model...if not please post the correct model number)

Let me know how you make out. If this is something you think is not within' your scope of expertise please call a pro. I think you'll be fine with the tutorial video in the link.

I will try to help in any manner I can of course as well, if you need it. Good luck.


Thank you for choosing FixYa. Please take a moment to rate the info I provided and a short testimony is appreciated.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

I have a Whirlpool Ultimate Care II washing machine (model LSN1000JQ0). The washer will fill with water and begin to agitate. Shortly after it will stop and will not drain. I've cleaned all hoses


see the next steps and use the common sense: God bless you
It spins, but doesn't pump If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out. To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port. Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job. If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump. It doesn't spin or pump If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. It pumps, but the water returns If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle, your washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck in the drain?) Also, check for these problems: If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess. If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.

Whirlpool dishwasher wont wash


if the bottom tub is filling with water but not washing the issues is with the wash motor, some of this model use a start capacitor that can fail, if it has a capacitor on the side of the motor it may have failed but are difficult to diagnose but are cheap to replace so worth trying, if this doesn't help or if it doesn't have a capacitor then the fault is with the wash motor.

Doesn't spin fast enough to remove water from tub. makes a steady noise that doesn't get louder or softer just stays steady


HI,
Check back of washe with a flashlight for a bent or clogged drain hose. Do not move washer to check it. When you move it , it will straighten out and you will never know if it was bent
Also while it is pumping , pick up end of drain hose at drain and observe the volume of water being pumped.
If no water then the Pump may need replaced
Thank you for using fixya

My dishwasher doesn`t drain. there is water at the bottom at te end of every wash... what`s wrong? how can i fix it?


Hi
Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

What's F-21


This error code F21 signifies a drain problem and usually caused by a blocked drain filter. Check to make sure that the drain hose is free from obstructions then remove the three screws securing the bottom front panel to the cabinet then pull the panel down and off the cabinet. You may prop up the bottom front edge of the machine with a 4X4 block of wood or cushion the top rear edge and lean it against the wall for easy access and removal of the screws.

Once the bottom front panel is off, you'll find the drain filter knob. Turn the knob counterclockwise to remove and clean the filter. You may need to lay a towel under the filter to catch residual water before removing it. Manually drain the water, by gravity, from the tub if significant amount of water is still present by placing the end of the drain hose as low as possible into a basin or bucket.

Click on the link below if cleaning the drain filter doesn't solve the problem.
