Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Whirlpool lsr8233jq0 Was washing fine this morning and now does not do anything, on any cycle. Do not think it is lid interlock. Circuit is ok and power is to the wall. It was getting ready to drain and spin on last cycle and just didn't begin.

I called a repairman. Problem was a broken wire going to the motor. This machine has a timer and you guy insisted that it had a control board. I almost bought a timer for $100, but cancelled and called a repairman. As it turned out, I paid $139 in total and didn't have to do the work. I will call this repairman from now on.

I gave it a shot, but having worked on these things for 25+ years, I just don't see how you can do that on the phone from a remote location. I wasted $9.95, but it was my decision to spend it. I won't again.

Thanks!

Mike

My whirlpool cabrio washer stopped in the middle of the wash cycle and flashed Ld in the estimated time remaining. Now it won't come back on. Unplugged, clicked start, still won't do anything. It's just...


WASHER WILL NOT START:

Power If your washing machine won't start, begin by looking at the power source. First of all, is the washing machine plugged in? If it is, has it tripped a circuit breaker or blown a fuse? Check and reset the breaker (or replace the fuse) if necessary.

Lid Switch The main control for the washing machine is the switch inside the lid. If this has stopped working for some reason, your washing machine won't start. It's not especially difficult to troubleshoot this on a washing machine. You might have to open the top to access the switch. With the power on, depress the switch and listen for a click. If you don't hear one, the switch MAY BE BAD and will need to be replaced. Confirm defectiveness with a multi meter checking for continuity OHMS. An open circuit reflects a bad switch..
If the switch works but the washing machine still won't start, check to see if your washing machine has a special fuse for the lid switch. It will usually be inside the control panel. If it's blown, you'll need to replace it before the washing machine will start.

Door Interlock The problem could be with the door interlock. If the lights come on but the machine won't start, this might well be the cause. This could either be down to the wiring that runs to the door interlock, or the door catch not activating the interlock itself.

Timer Knob Some models of washing machine use a mechanical timer knob and won't run until the water in the machine has filled to the selected level. If the knob doesn't line up properly with the graphics on the control panel, you can try to troubleshoot the washing machine problem by advancing the timer a little. When you've done this, pull it out a little way and see if the washing machine will start properly.

Push start switch may need to be tested with a multi meter for continuity OHMS should show a closed circuit when pushed in or turned on.

Overheating If you've run several loads, one after another, without any problem but suddenly find your washing machine refuses to start, overheating could be the cause. The simple way to discover whether this is the problem is to give the machine ample time to cool down, say for a couple of hours, and then try it again. If it works fine, overheating has been the problem and you may have a motor with bad windings.

My washer wont spin,what could be the problem?The lid lock light flashes.


something too do with the pump
or your waist

you must make sure all is clean and clear
under the sink pumps filters and the waist too the sink or flow away

if the lid light flashes perhaps the machines door interlock has failed

i recond if any machine wont lock on request then the interlock isnt right...
perhaps if your not sure ask a tech too test and perhaps replace the interlock device.... this can also be caused by a motor
but i think its the filters and waist easy too clean and fix

so clean all the filters
and the pump perhaps a clothes wires are in the pump boken up or a coin once cleaned and your sure the waist is cleaned
then apply mains again too the machine and try a blank cycle {no washing no cry... is the rule ...}

then once it works and completes they try a load

if it works magic like most its a pump or waist issue
some are past there sink and heavy flap or there ~u bend is blocked up

Washing machine would not start


On the lid is a switch that turn off the washer when the load pushes against the top. You may have over-loaded the machine.

Why won't my whirlpool model #LSR8233JQ0 go through the rinse cycle or the spin cycle


i have no info on this model, but if its a front loader then you will be looking at your drain pump motor as at the start of the rinse and spin cycles it will need to drain if it cannot it will not even attempt to continue on, so take that little drain pump cover off and have a look inside the propeller it may just be jammed up, if not it may be blocked somewhere along the hose or just a faulty pump altogether, if its a top loader you will be looking for the same thing but if it isn't the pump it will be the lid switch that senses the lid has been shut as all whirlpool top loaders must be able to activate the lid switch or else it cant spin (simply a safety feature to prevent injury), get back to me if you have any questions

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II Washing Machine Rinse cycle not workin


Most of these spin related problems are attributed to a lid switch malfunction. A washer that fills and doesn't do anything, or stops right after the wash cycle and then does not advance to the rinse cycle and drain is commonly caused by a lid switch. The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

If the switch requires replacement, a new one can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, pcappliancerepair.com, repairclinic.com, appliancepartspros.com. Just use your model number as your search criteria. All these sites offer competitive pricing, so shop all them for the best price.

Let me know if you need further assistance. I hope this helps you.

Washing machine will not drain.


I have the same problem. If I press on the lid by the switch it starts up and finishes the load. Hope this works for you!
