Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

1 Answer

WTW5600XW0 Our machine (Top Loader) was used for approx 6 mos. then in storage for 1 yr. It is now just not cleaning well at all. It is no longer filling with as much water as it used to. It's as if the weight sensor is inaccurately weighing the clothing. It does agitate and spin, but, again, is NOT getting our clothes clean at all! Sometimes some of the clothes on top don't even get all of the way wet. Anyone know what I should do to fix??

Check the water level sensor hose by blowing it out. The hose runs from the side of the tub to the console.

SOURCE: Clothes still wet after spin cycle

the first 2 things you need to check is:

  1. if it is spinning as fast as it used to
  • if not it needs a new clutch assembly ($35 + labor)
  1. if it is draining as fast as it used to
  • if not then it needs a new water pump ($30 + labor)
there is no filter that would cause this problem. prices are from repairclinic.com
  • if none of this describes the problem then let me know and i will help you figure it out. i know these machines well.

SOURCE: Washer wont fill with water/clothes dont get clean

Actually the machine is working like it is designed. When the correct soap is used, these machines clean clothes better than the old style. Try using a major brand of soap like Tide, Bold, or Cheer. Make sure it has the HE design on the bottle. This means that it is made just for the new High Efficiency machines. Also make sure you don't use to much. Read the directions. If this is done correctly, I'm sure you will find that it does clean great. I was like you when I first saw one of these new machines. "These is no way you can clean dirty and I mean dirty clothes without enough water to cover them. Well since, I have became a believer. They have put a lot of thought into designing these things. They had to of, for them to clean as good as they do.

What lime scale / detergent remover can be used for regular cleaning of my front loader.


Front-loading washing machines are energy efficient and use less detergent than top-loaders, but they sometimes have a tendency to harbor mold and unpleasant smells. By giving your washing machine a quick clean once a month, you'll keep your front-loader fresh, which means cleaner clothes, too. This eco-friendly method doesn't use bleach, costs only pennies to make, and comes together with ingredients you already have on hand.
What You'll Need:
  • 2 cups vinegar
  • 1/4 cup baking soda
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Scrub sponge
Directions:
  1. Start by mixing together the baking soda and water in a small bowl. This is going to be the "detergent" for cleaning the washing machine. Pour the vinegar into a measuring cup and head over to your washing machine.
  2. Add the baking soda mixture to the detergent container of your machine and pour the vinegar into the drum. Set your washer to normal load at the hottest water setting. Close the door and start the machine, letting it do all the hard work for you. The baking soda and vinegar naturally break up mineral deposits and any mold growth while cleaning and refreshing your washing machine.
  3. Use a clean scrubber to rub around the opening of the washing machine, removing stubborn mold or residue. Wipe clean with fresh water.
  4. Your washing machine is sparkling clean and ready to do a load of laundry! Give your front-loader a cleaning once a month to keep your clothes smelling fresh and your machine working in tip-top condition.

Suds in rinse cycle


Hi,
There are a couple of reasons why this may happen. You may have accidentally purchased top loader powder instead of front loader powder. Have a look on the side of the box as this is an easy mistake to make which causes excessive suds.
Secondly you may be over filling the dispenser tray. You don't need to put anymore than about 1/3 of a scoop of detergent in despite what the manufacturer suggests on the box. They just want you to use more so you purchase more.
Try flushing out the machine by doing a few empty cycles with no clothes or detergent on 95c with a cup of white vinegar in the detergent dispenser when it goes to fill with water. I recommend you doing this every month anyway to clean out the drum and kill off any bacteria so the door seal doesn't create mould.

Hope this helps.

The bendix may not be pushing the gears to engage the flywheel. Take out the starter and have it tested.

with the unit being moved around you have probably unplugged the motor some how. if its not moving the drum round and has been moved around, that's what i would check for as with the motor not moving it will not measure water or load as this is done by the motor.

Most items are 1 yr warranty, however Firm may fix this under GOODWILL if you state this item should be expected to last longer than 1 yr before breakdown...I found that in most cases if you speak to the company they will listen and be sympathetic to your problem.....Good luck.....
