SOURCE: whirlpool washer lxr9245eq1 doesn't spin dry completely

Try this... while in in spin turn your spin selector switch and listen if motor spins slower or faster.. at fast spin open your lid quick to see how fast its spinning.. check and make sure your drain line is cleared and the water flow out fast...and if its spinning too slow problem is in the gearbox area..

SOURCE: Maytag Washer PAVT-1 continues filling with water to overflowing

Does it still do this with power to the machine off? If so it is your water fill valve. Because no power is getting to the valve it has to shut off unless some foreign particles are holding it open. Remove and replace the water fill valve if still runs water after power is off.

Here are some things on how the selector switches work: If it stops when you remove power look at these possibilities.

Water fill switches usually have an air tube that as the water level comes up the air pressure increases and causes the switch to go from fill to wash.
I have seen rodents chew holes in the air tubing and this could be the cause or you may have a bad switch.
Some times the switches also get out of calibration and need readjusting (especially if you have moved in altitude like up a mountain or into a valley).
If this helps you please rate me as high as possible.
If it doesnt help you please rediscribe your problem in more detail to help me understand, post back and I will follow up.

SOURCE: sometimes does not spin enough to wring out water from clothes.

The spin cycle should be on a timer,and shouldn't be able to change how long it spins.The same timer that controls all the cycles of your washer.Your pump may be trying to go out,and isn't removing the water fast enough.This will keep water in the tub,and the normal spin cycle isn't long enough to let the pump get the job done.Another problem might be a clog in your drain hose.Another problem could be the drain hose is set to high above the pump,and the pump can't push it up that high (shouldn't be a problem if you are using the hose that came with the washer,and not extending it with another hose or something.)

Is 10194450 the model # of my whirlpool washer


Hi Adrian, no this number is not a model number for a Whirlpool Washer. If you have a top loading Washer, you can locate the model/serial number by looking just under the lid around the tubs rim. If you have a front loading Washer, the model/serial number can be found by opening the door and looking around the opening of the Washer. The model number will begin with letters, usually with the letter W. We hope this helps.

I have a Whirlpool Cabrio washer Model number WTW63003WO that gets off balance and displays a UL code.


It's important to check the level of the unit, and assure all adjustable feet are firmly planted on the ground first. A very common problem with these units are the suspension dampening rods, when they get weak they allow the tub to move around too much while spinning, and sometimes washing. A simple test by an experienced technician who knows what to look for would be to reach into the wash basket while the machine is empty and off, and push the tub all the way down till it stops, the technician will be looking for the amount of resistance it takes for this to happen. The easier it is to push the basket and tub assembly down to the end of it's travel the weaker the suspension rods are. At least one update to these suspension rods have been made, suggesting the current replacements are stronger. Part# W10247710, based on a model number of WTW6300WW0. Pleazer Appliance...

Whirlpool ite6234d thin twin could someone tell me in detail where the belt is located in the washer?


I can not find your model number that you posted.
I can tell you that all whirpool thin twins up to last year were direct drive with no belt except for the dryer section. Whirlpool stackers from the early eighties did have a washer belt if yours is this old replace the entire machine.

I have a Maytag Neptune FAV6800AWQ Serial Number


Fireman,

Excellent info wish all post would start off like this. The first two digits of the s/n are your series number a Series 16 machine I’m an owner no expert and will try to help.

I assume you have the Service Manual but just in case.

FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.


“”I can grab the drive belt and effortlessly move it back and forth-pulley spins and motor spins--Should it move like this?””

There should be slight resistance.

With the front cover off and be careful of the rotating drive belt can you start a Spin Only cycle?

Do you see the Motor rotate the Clutch Pulley assembly CCW? If so the wash basket should spin CCW just raise the washer top and verify the CCW/Spin rotation.

If that works again with the front cover off start a Quick Wash cycle min Soil/Spin settings and observe as the washer. As it fills the wash basket will be rotating CCW don’t raise the washer top to high or you will spray water around.

After the water fill the washer will start to Wash/Agitate. The Motor will rotate the Clutch Pulley CW and the Tumblers will rotate. Do you see this action.

You can go into Service Mode with this procedure and dump the wash water if the cycle fails with this procedure.

I would go to page 16 of the SM lower right hand part of page, Board Output Test and turn on the drain pump in service mode to pump out the tub.

Enter Service Mode by simultaneously pressing and holding the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or the display reads “00”

Pressing the Delicates key will lock the lid. Now press the Presoak key the drain pump will turn on. Stop with off button or hit the Presoak key.

Thank you again for the Model number and Serial number…. other readers this is how you post an issue.

Waiting for your feedback………Rich

Broken shock absorbers on front loading Kenmore


Hi, first things first. Your model and serial numbers should be on a sticker somewhere around the door opening. Next check the tub. With your finger,push up on the rim of the tub then rotate the tub a few inches and push up again. Continue through a whole rotation. If the tub moves and make a clicking noise you have a bad drum bearing and the cost to repair is more than the unit is worth. If that's not an issue,then it's probably just the shocks,replacing them should solve the problem. Hope that helps.
