SOURCE: Whirlpool 6th sense awm8163 programes never stops now cannot get it to work at all

The pump is at the lower left of the front of the machine covered by a white plate. Use a bowl to catch any remaining water when opening the screw thread inside and then clean and replace. If it is truely beyond repair then a new filter pump can be bought from ebay for £3 or thereabouts.

I have just drained mine manually in this way and am going to run it empty with soda crystals to glean a few more days use whilst the new pump arrives.

Good luck :)

SOURCE: what does F7 mean on a whirlpool 6th sense washing

Hi,
F7 in whirlpools means "Clean the filter”.
The following troubleshooting steps would help fix it. Remove the filter on the floor of the machine, including the metal grill. Press & hold the start button (like you do when you want to cancel a program this will drain the water out of your clogged up drain outlet. Clean your filter and grill and replace it. My guess is that the sensor in the drain (a little glass tube) measures whether the water going out is clean enough to decide that your dishes are now rinsed correctly. If your filters clogged, the water going down the drain is still dirty. After a while it gets sick of trying and stops the machine.

Thank you for contacting www.Fixya.com

SOURCE: F 12 whirlpool 6 th sense washing machine.

hello,

simple ,The "F 12" error code is an indication of a water temperature sensor error. There is a chance that there is a loose wire connection on the water temperature

what you need to do to fix up your washer is to check on the wiring connection from the power supply to the water temperature indicator.

thank you and thanks for using fixya.

I have whirlpool aquasteam 6th sense fromtliad washer 9760. It wont drain the water


Probably you have a clogged water pump clean it if not clogged then you have to know how to check if you have voltage to it, do so if you have 120 volts then it's your water pump http://www.appliancepartspros.com/whirlpool-washer-drain-pump-280187-ap3953640.html

Whirlpool dishwasher F8 E1 error


You have a blockage in the drain line someplace. If you have a garbage disposer, check to see that it is clear where the dishwasher connects to it. Also check and make sure that the drain hose is higher then the inlet to the disposer to prevent water draining back into the drain line from the disposer. If that's clear you have a blockage somewhere in the drainline. Best to unit from cabinet and check it

F4 message on the top drawer, fisher paykel. I clean the filters and arm every week or two.


There 2 possibilities with this error:
1)
  • Fault with water fill (only on machines with level-controlled fill)
  • Note: Lights blinking, pump running and controls dead indicates an over fill fault
2)--4 Flashes--Draining failure. Drain pump, control board OWI or water indicator defect

2LYMPAIA - F4


Hello

If you have F4 and the sump is full of water, there's a good chance the drain pump is being jammed by a broken bit of glass or pottery. However, if the appliance is empty of water and F4 error code is flashing, where do you go from there?

The electronic control (module pcb) does a self check of the components, during a drain cycle the programme allows a time parameter for the appliance to empty away the water. How does the pcb know the water has gone? Simply by testing a pressure switch for continuity.

The pressure switch is an on or off switch, when the appliance is empty the internal contacts are "made" (on) when the appliance is full of water the switch is "broken" (off).

The sensing grid of the pressure switch is exposed to the dishwasher wash water and can over a period of time get clogged with crud ( a mixture of food waste and detergent and limescale), eventually this crud stops the switch from being in the correct attitude during the self tests. The electronics notes the on or off and determines that the appiiance has not drained and gives error code F4.

If you have F4 error code it could be the pressure switch needs cleaning or replacing.

On the self test about 4 mins is allowed for the appliance to empty the water away.

I have a near new 8.5 kg 6th sense front loader that is leaking lots of water! I've cleaned the filter but no success


You will have to find out where the leak is . Get down and look. at the front, at the back, where? Check the hoses at both ends. Water can run down the hose from the tap or the drain hose can leak. Water can come up out of the grille in the floor This grille might be under the machine. Check it out Cheers Tony

How do you clean pump on whirlpool. 6th sense


Hi

On the bottom right corner of the machine you will have a drain filter.

Flip open the door. It opens vertically from top down.

Please note if your pump is blocked there will be water in the machine which has not drained out. When you twist open the filter anti-clock wise, all the water will gush out. Be prepared for this with towls and mopps. Also open the filter dial, slightly at first and only allow the water to trickle out at first. Once the water is all out, open and pull out the filter. Clean out the flilter and the cavity. Look into the cavity with a torch and make sure everything is clear.
Put back the filter.
Start your machine on the "Drain" cycle only. Check to see if you can hear the water pump working. If there is no noise, then the pump needs further investigation. It may even be faulty.

posible mailfunction reasons:
