Question about Washing Machines
Check the hoses to make sure they are ok and hot is hooked to hot and cold to cold, Make sure valves are open all the way, disconnect the hose from the washer and check to see if there are filter screens on the inlets. If this all checks out ok then you need to check the voltage at the valves during the fill cycle and if it is present, check the resistance of the valves to see if it is ok. If it is not the valves then you are looking at a control board issue. Also there is a technicians help sheet inside the unit that tells you how to use the machines diagnostics to troubleshoot the issue. To get the help sheet you need to take the panel off below the door and look for an envelope that is taped to the frame.

SOURCE: Not draining
it will be the pump they have a small fan inside them they get weak and with the pressure of the water they stop spinning which doesnt push your the water through the motor fast enough to drain properly replace and you will see the difference

I called Whirlpool on 08706008989. The machine can only dry half a load of washing at a time. At the end of the washing cycle, the Programme dial should be at either the sun or half sun symbol. Remove half the washing, set the drying time via the drying time dial and press the 1/2 Load Dryer button - Voila dry clothes!

Hello. Yes there is a fill level pressure switch. It is pressure activated by the pressure of water rising in a tube as the water rises in the tub.It's easy to find and easy to replace. Look for the tube and follow it to the switch. Parts for Kenmore are available at 1-800-516-9625 or at http:\www.sears.com.

If the washer fills up with water and you hear the motor running but the agitator doesn’t move, the agitator coupling is the most likely problem. First pump the water out by turning the timer to spin. Once the water is out, turn the washer off. Now pull up on the agitator until it comes off (it may be hard to pull off). Now that the agitator is off, you can see the agitator coupling, reach down and try to turn the coupling. If the coupling turns freely, it is striped out and needs to be replaced.

You have a solenoid leaking by. Next time toy finish a load, shut of one of the water supply valves at the wall. If the water does NOT come into the machine after that, you know that you closed the right valve. Once you have determined which side (hot or cold) is leaking, follow that hose to the machine. The hose connects to the solenoid valve, which is just an electrically controlled valve that is either opened or closed. You can try to service the valve, but it is easier to remove and replace it. They don't cost much, and you can get an exact replacement at any appliance parts supply house. Total time to replace...1-1/2 hours.
