Question about Whirlpool Dryers

Open Question

Leaking dryer Our Whirlpool AWZ 8812 dryer has started leaking. The dryer itself is still working, but not how it supposed to. The Top water container is not filling up with water. There is a little bit in it, but 98% is coming out of the heat exchanger. The heat exchanger is clean, the filter has been cleaned after every cycle and the pump is working normally. Any idea what it could be and what to do? Many thanks, Marlien Jones.

You have a water pump in the base of the appliance this can sometimes fail or block. On the back of the dryer there should be a pipe just pull that off and blow down it, if there is a block this may well remove it. If not it's likely a pump failure.

Hope this helps

Well if you had mention that in the first place I wouldn't be asking you. No wonder your trying to fix the problem by yourself because with that attitude you can't get a technician to come out for service.

Whirlpool AWZ 8578 - does not stop, always needs manual switch off


These symptoms most usually are a bad timer/control. If the dial turns all by itself, and continues to turn by itself like a clock does, it is likely a timer/control must be replaced. Same results if it will not advance by itself either.
You could type in "Sears Parts" for the new part, typing in your complete model number. If you wished to try a used control, after obtaining a part number, you could type that in to "e-bay" and see what you find in new or used parts there. I do.
Be blessed.

Whirlpool AWZ 410 washer dryer is not generating any hot air when drying. The dryer drum is tumbling but with cool air only.


Unplug the unit and take the top with the screws holding the lid on. Take a look at all of the wires on the top of the machine. You might notice broken/burnt wires on the safeties that are close to or that directly activate the heating element located in the blower housing located at the top of this washer/dryer condensing unit.

I got a Whirlpool AW Z 865 dryer. It is a condenser dryer and the water is not going up to the collecting bucket, but remains below and then leaks out and floods the floor when I open the little pull door...


I had a similar problem with a Whirlpool AWZ 8578 Tumble Dryer. The solution was to clean the fluff out of the rubber grommet in the drain hole under the left front of the condenser. Then the water from the condenser could run into the collection container underneath.
