SOURCE: Our washing machine was stopping at various stages

Although the machine itself is balanced, it sounds like the drum isn't. Since it's not held in place with belts, it has a tendency to float some and on occasion, it will become unbalanced. You will notice it more often on lighter loads than heavy because the extra weight of the clothes is enough to seat the drum well enough to run. It's the lighter loads when you will notice an issue. What I've done is to physically lift the drum slightly and shake it around in all directions. After letting it come to a rest in the center, it should balance and run correctly for all loads.

The third and fourth lights from the left indicate a failed motor controller (error code 48) If this is the correct fault code you will have to replace the motor controller. However before that is done all the electrical components which can effect the controller must be checked as well...Best to call a tech...Good luck Nomess

SOURCE: Hi I have a gw612

Hi just read your posting.Starting from the left to right if the lights that are on when the machine is beeping are the 3rd and 4th and 8th then the error code is called COLD VALVE FAULTY.This means either your cold water valve is faulty or you control module is faulty.Would you like me to guide you in the testing and isolating the fault and replacing the faulty component?Please reply for further help.Looking forward to your reply.

I have a whirlpool cabrio and the lid will not lock the light keeps flashing and it keeps making the lock clicking sound


BEFORE ASSUMING THE LID SWITCH NEEDS REPLACEMENT TEST WITH A METER, BUT FIRST TRY TO RESET CONTROL BOARD EVEN RUNNING A DIAGNOSTIC TEST WILL REVEAL THE SOURCE OF THE ERROR.. 1. Be sure the washer is in standby mode (plugged in with all indicators off; or with only the Clothes Clean or Done indicator on). 2. Select any one button (except POWER, START, STOP, and PAUSE/CANCEL) and follow the steps below, using the same button: a. Press/hold 3 seconds. b. Release for 3 seconds. c. Press/hold 3 seconds. d. Release for 3 seconds. e. Press/hold 3 seconds. ? If this test mode has been entered successfully, all indicators on the console are illuminated for 5 seconds with 88 showing in the Estimated Time Remaining two-digit display. ? If indicators do not display as described above, the press/hold/release procedure above may not have been performed within the time frame necessary for successful entry. Repeat step 2 to ensure this was not the cause. If still unsuccessful, see Diagnostic: Unsuccessful Entry, at right. 3. The test sequence continues by checking for saved fault codes: ? If there are saved fault codes, see Diagnostic: Saved Fault Codes, page 2. ? If there are no saved fault codes, all indicators on the console will momentarily turn off, then turn back on with 88 displayed. After 5 seconds, the Automatic test, below, begins.

OP display light comes on when hitting start. Then hit off & in a minute it comes on?


Most times this issue is caused by loss of signaling thru the Left Hand Lid Lock.

1st check for a Lid Magnet out of position. This is an easy check if you have a couple key holder magnets or a similar magnet that you can place over the Left side grey lid bumper. Let's see if you can close the Magnetic Reed Relay switch with an external magnet and send +12VDC up to the Control Board and clear the "OP" error code.
If that doesn't clear the "OP" error code we will need to remove the Left Hand Lid Lock and check to see if corrosion is part of the issue. Because of its proximity to that nasty bleach dispenser it will cause issues. Here is the lid lock to order.
Here is a picture of a bad lid lock.

Having trouble with my whirlpool cabrio . . . showing "DU" . . .


The F30 error code (dU) will flash when the dispenser motor cannot be driven to its proper position.



Door Unlock Error

A Door Unlock Error occurs if the door cannot be unlocked.
It will try to unlock the door 6 times before displaying the error.


Door Lock Mechanism broken.
Check Door Lock/Switch Assembly for foreign objects
Check Wire Harness connections to the Door Lock/Switch Assembly and Central Control Unit (CCU)

If it is a cabrio:
dU flashes if the following conditions occur:
Excessive force on door lid is preventing lock bolt from retracting.
Wash media buildup is preventing lock bolt from retracting.
Machine/motor control cannot determine if door lid is in an unlocked state.





TEST #8 Door Lid Lock
Perform the following checks if washer fails to lock (or unlock).
1. Perform Manual: Door Switch and Manual: Door Lid Lock tests.
2. Remove the console to access the machine/ motor control assembly. See Accessing & Removing the Electronic Assemblies.
3. Visually check that the P12 connector is inserted all the way into the machine/motor control. If visual check passes, go to step 4. If visual check fails, reconnect P4 and repeat step 1.
4. Check the lid lock motor winding and switches by removing P12 from the machine/ motor control and checking the
resistance values....



Component/Resistance Unlocked/Resistance Locked/Contacts Measured/Contacts Measured:


Motor Winding/35 ±5 O/35 ±5 O/P12-2/P12-3/

Lock Switch - Lid/Lid Closed = 0 OLid Open = Open Circuit/Lid Closed = 0 O Lid Open = Open Circuit/P12-1/P12-5


If resistance values are good, go to step 5. If switch measurements do not match the values shown in the table for unlocked (or locked) conditions, a problem
exists in the door lid lock. Replace the door lid lock.

5. If the Manual: Door Switch or Manual: Door Lid Lock in step 1 failed, then the machine/motor control has failed: Unplug washer or disconnect power.
Replace machine/motor control assembly. Perform the Manual: Door Switch and Manual: Door Lid Lock in step 1 to verify repair.

Gw 612 washes ,drains wont spin fault comes up as on off off off on


Hi just read your posting.Now the problem you might have, and I have had before, is the motor is not turning the bowl far enough when it is starting to spin and therefore the machine thinks the bowl is not turning.To get your machine spinning 1st undo the 2 screws under the lid so you can lift the hob up to see the bowl.Select a spin cycle and hit start while you are holding the hob up enough to see the bowl.The reason for lifting the hob instead of the lid to see the bowl is if you lifted the lid the machine would not work because of the lid switch.Now when you are holding the hob up to see the bowl make sure the lid is closed so the machine will work.Now once you have started the spin cycle you will see the bowl turning one way then reverse and turn the other way.While you are holding the hob up when the bowl turns in 1 direction help turn the bowl in that same direction with your hand.Once the bowl reverses help turning it in that direction also.This will make the machine register that the bowl is loose enough and will kick to spin.Once it is spinning let it spin for the cycle and you should be fine.Please reply for further help if needed,Good luck
