    thankyou for your help im not sure where the watervalve is located.all the pipes are clear of bebri i had them off the other day after doing the dogs blankets it clogs them up but once i did that it now wont take in water.

  • B.H. Countryman Jan 07, 2013

    Oh i see. The watervalve is the thing the hoses behind the washer hook up to. Check that the hoses aren't kinked or restricted in any way. If you see no problem turn off the supply valve (the valve that came with the house) and remove the hose from the back of the machine (from the watervalve on the machine.) There are screens in the ends of the watervalve than can become clogged with debris. Use a toothbrush or spray bottle to flush the debris from the screens. Be careful reattaching the hose to valve. And consider replacing the washer in the end of supply hoses before reattaching. Screw the hose end to the valve hand tight then 1/4 turn more with pliers. Do not overtighten, do not use teflon tape and do not crossthread. Turn supply line valve back on. Check for leaks. Test washer.

Whirlpool AWM8121 says Door is open and will not wash. Is it Microswitch of something else.

Let'[s hope that is it.
These switches are made of plastic, and are really cheap.
It should be fastened with screws to the inside of the top of the machine, which you will need to open to access.
Be blessed.

Water supply isnt getting to the ice maker .

HI welcome to fix-ya. Sounds like bad watervalve with a frozen filltube. Try using a hairdryer to thaw the tube that the water enters icemaker. Then replace watervalve. I take it you can get water out of the door and the filter is ok. This can also cause the problem. I hope this helps.

Whirlpool AWM8121 stops working mid cycle. Bottom two lights flashing on spin speeds.

Fault code 3 = Drain failure or not detecting empty drum.

Check pressure switch, blocked drain, drain pump.
