Wash Machine Drainage problem

I have a Whirlpool Estate Washing Machine that someone just gave me. I have it hooked up right and everything is working great except --- it seems to be draining to fast and the drain hose is hooked up correctly and then the pipe is filling up fast and overflowing. I have tried cleaning out the drain with drain chemicals and have also used equipment to clean out the pipes. Is there anyway to slow down the water flow or to put a smaller hose on it for the pipe will not fill out so fast? I live in an older home. Thanks!

Re: Wash Machine Drainage problem

I am a recently retired appliance engineer of 20 years, slowing down the flow of water from any electrical washing appliances can be dangerous and will cause extensive damage to the appliance in question, at the very least it will stop half way through the cycle every time the only way to remedy this is to rectify the drain, or at least sort out another waste water outlet sorry

How to fix a whirpool washing machine won't drain or spin cycle

First check to see if the drainage system at the bottom of the machine is not clogged. Depending on the model, the drainage service plug (a big screw on cap) should be accessible when the bottom panel is removed. Remove the cap and clean out everything that is blocking the screen. Put it back on after cleaning and see how it goes.

Washing machine wont complete drainage at end of wash cycle

Look under the washer tub where the drain hose comes out and attaches to the pump. Your pump impeller is either clogged or worn out. Try removing the pump and checking from there.

Where do I find the modle number

You should be able to find it either printed somewhere on the front (such as Whirlpool Combi Heaty Wash) or on the sticker with the serial number on the back of the unit

My estate washing machine will not spin out, all of the other cycles work correctly.

Try to clean the magnetic door switch,some windex and a paper towell.Just do the part on the door or lid and where the lid meets the top of the magnet.Make sure this is not loose and is seated in the machine.

You may need to unplug machine and remove the door switch,take both wires and tie them togther so they make contact.Then try a wash cycle or try the spin cycle.
The door switches in the estate washers fall apart and get corroded and can stop the spin cycle.

If the machine works with the switch taken out then you will need to get a new one from whirlpool.

Where is the fabric dispenser in my whirlpool estate washing machine?

Whirlpool will put their fabric softener dispensers in one of 2 places. Either in the top of the agitator there will be a cup or in one of the front right hand corners (far less often). If you do not have either of these options, likely, it a model that did not come with one (not uncommon at all)

Washer smells after load

First thing to try is to get affresh washer tablets. They are a new product from whirlpool designed for front loaders to keep the smell out. They also work great for top loading machines. They are about ten dollars a pack. Read the instructions and run the washer through its cycle and the smell get better. The longer you use it, the smell should go away.
