SOURCE: machine wont start after filling

This is usually caused by the lid switch. These are inexpensive and easy to replace. There are videos at http://appliancehelponline.com/toplidswitchvideo.html that will walk you thru testing and replacing this part. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. All parts come with installation instructions. Not all models are available.

Whirlpool ultimate care II will fill up with water but not do anything else


It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If the water flows though the inlet then the flow pressure should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

Check this link to replace the inlet valve:

http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/washing-machines/a/7/1408/how-to-replace-the-inlet-valve-on-a-washer-dr.html

Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the dry spin with the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water from the clothes during the spin.

Whirlpool LSQ9544KQO won't spin


if it fills with water and then nothing check the lid switch,if it's bad it won't do anything but fill,some will agitate but then no drain or spin,the easiest way to check it is open the lid a few inches and close it,do this a few times,if you don't hear a clicking sound the switch is bad,or open the lid and stick a screw driver into the hole on the right side where the strike from the lid goes into,if it doesn't click when you push it down and let it up it's bad,part number 3949237 and it's around 50 dollars.watch this video,it's a different lid switch but changes out the same way.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFsvLiuTniU
you can also stick a jumper wire into the two outside wires to check it,flip up the top console,you'll see the lid switch connector on the right side plugging into the top of the frame,unplug it,stick the jumper into the connector that unplugged from the frame and it will have three holes in it,the middle is ground so stick the jumper into the two outside holes,set the timer to drain and pull out the timer,if it starts to drain and spin then you know the lid switch is bad.hope this helps.

How do you put tramission fluid into the car - funnell??


There is a Fill Bolt on top of the transmission and a Drain bolt on the bottom of the transmission. Changing the fluid is simply a matter of taking the drain bolt off, letting it drain, putting the drain bolt back on and then filling it via the fill bolt. If you can't get the fill bolt off you will have to use the transmission dipstick tube to fill it which takes a while and requires some creativity. A drain and refill will probably take about 3 quarts of ATF. Make sure you buy the Honda Z1 ATF from a dealer because in my experience honda transmission just don't work right with anything else.

Washer is draining as it's filling -up. Checked all hose there on and no leaks coming from them. Could it be the plastic pump?


This could be a simple matter of drain hose placement. What it sounds like you are experiencing is known as "siphoning". The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r587481-prevent_washer_siphoning

Double check your drain hose placement and the size/height of the standpipe. If you don't have a sufficient air gap, your washer will begin to siphon water from the tub as it fills. The drain pump cannot cause this problem on the fill cycle as it is driven by the drive motor. The drive motor will not engage until the washer is filled and the wash cycle starts.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this is helpful.

Kenmore heavy duty 70 series model 82763110


set the load size to small, fill with water.

now after it fills with water do you hear anything? motor noise?

If you hear motor noise, it probably has a broken motor coupler.

if it doesnt do anything I would look at the lid switch and activator, the lid has to close and the switch has to know it closed. did the tab on the lid break off?

Water problem


Many dishwashers will drain at the beginning of any cycle.
If the water does not fill after the pump-out cycle, then the problem is either the fill valve or the float switch. You should be able to hear the float switch click as you raise or lower it. The fill valve usually hums whenever it has power.
If the fill valve has power but doesn't open, (use a voltmeter) replace the fill valve. If there is no power at the float switch, nor at the fill valve after pumping out, then the clock / timer is at fault.

Washer fills, drains instead of agitating, fills, etc


ON THIS MACHINE WHEN IT AGGITATES MOTOR ROTATES ONE DIRECTION, WHEN IT PUMPS OUT AND SPINS IT ROTATES THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION. YOUR MACHINE IS ROTATING THE WRONG DIRECTION WHEN IT FILLS., INDICATING THAT THE TIMER IS SENDING VOLTAGE TO WRONG WIRES. SOLUTION , REPLACE TIMER.
PS: MAKE SURE ALL WIRES ARE PLUGGED IN TO MOTOR. WHILE THIS IS UNLIKELY , I HAVE SEEN THIS BE THE PROBLEM.
