Question about Haier HLP23E Top Load Washer

Haier hlp23e jolting noise spin

I overloaded this little washer--now, when it spins, it makes a terrific jolting noise like the tub has spun out of control and stopped suddenly. It stops the spin cycle and keeps going back to rinse to rebalance, but the problem is, once it spins again, it jolts again and gets the clothes unbalanced itself. Seems like the timing of something is off? It really sounds like its spinning the tub very fast, gets off kilter, then stops itself with a jolt, banging the tub on the inside. Looked in back--belt doesn't seem broken. There's a little metal tab that clicks over against a plastic gear above the belt that seems to reset itself every so often--could be the problem?

You need to level it again. (the knobs on the bottom of it are threaded so you can adjust them to make them level, it can be time consuming, so it is best to start with the one that is shortest.

SOURCE: Keeps on rinsing and spinning over and over again

Aha! Mine was doing the same thing and I also noticed that there was some excess water in bottom of the tub - not the tub that the clothes go in but the one that that tub is sitting in. Does that make sense? Anyway, I cut the zip tie that holds the drainage hose, brought the hose as close to the house as possible and siphoned the excess water out of the tub. After this I tried a small test load and it worked no problem. I think the fact that there was this excess water left in the machine made the load too heavy to start the spin cycle.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: damp and piled up clothes at the end of each cycle

Good Day.... I feel for you... Unknowingly,When they purchase it. Many people have the same experience in finding service for products such as your experiencing.
Of course, it's our hope and belief, it's not ever going to have a problem, some people are lucky. Me neither... mine is in computers... but that's another story.. Just believe me, I understand ... but I'm going to try to help... why I picked up this call, is because I find it to be interesting, about the comment about the clothes gathering into a ball... Generally, that happens in relationship to the amount of water, inside or lack of it. If the clothes are in a ball, that's why they're coming out wet. Nobody makes a washer that can do that.
I want you to check the drain line...(that's the hose to water uses to exit) Is the hose at any point, higher than the top of the machine (it's supposed to be) ... if not siphoning may be occurring.
Also check to drain hose at the inlet, where the hose goes into the wall.. it must allow air to get in here as well. I have experienced some indifferent situations before, if the hose in stuffed into the stand-pipe, or taped,glued, sealed.. if there is no vacuum break (meaning-place in which air can enter) that to can create a siphon. Ge was known for having a washer that made the kind of bang you describe. It was their normal method for stopping the clothes basket from spinning forever. I hope this answer works for you, otherwise resolving may continue to be difficult. One piece of information you'll have received, is what you will and won't recommend to buy when you hear others having conversation on buying a major Appliance. Sometimes it's all we can do... I wish you best... dean

SOURCE: haier washer machine HLP23E makes a noise

A washing machine may wiggle, rattle or move across the floor. It is often accompanied by excessive, or loud noise. There can be several causes and the problem is worse with some units more than others.The most common cause is an unbalanced wash load. Open the lid/door, and attempt to redistribute the clothing to balance the weight. Heavy loads, especially things like comforters, are more likely to become unbalanced than small loads. If you do a lot of heavy loads, you should consider a heavy duty/large capacity washer when it comes time to replace your current unit. A washer must be level both from side to side as well as from front to back. Washing machines have adjustable feet to enable you to level them. See your manual on how to level your washing machine.The outer tub/basket, is supported by springs, pistons or counterweights to keep it balanced. The weight of all that water in a wash load requires a powerful balancing mechanism. If the balancing system becomes detached from one or more points, it will not be able to balance the load properly. Furthermore, even if everything appears to be in place, as the appliance ages, the springs or pistons/shock absorbers, may begin to wear out and not support as much weigh as needed.

Unplug the washer and open the cabinet. Because of the variety of balancing mechanisms, you will have to inspect your machine to determine how it is balanced. Once you discover the mechanism, then inspect it for integrity. In the case of old parts that appear to be in working order, you may not be able to tell if they need to be replaced. They may be weak but appear to be in good condition. If no other solution resolves the problem, then replacing the balancing springs or other moving support parts may be the best action.Another common cause for excessive movement, or clunking, is the floor on which the washer rests. The washer is heavy and even more so when filled with water. Any floor, other than a concrete slab, will tend to pick up and amplify the vibrations from the machine.There are a couple things you can try. If you have access to the joists under the floor, you may be able to beef up the support. Another thing to try is placing a large sheet of plywood under the washer. It should be 3/4" or even 1" thick and as large as possible to distribute the weight. Use a sheet big enough for both the washer and dryer to sit on. If possible fasten the plywood to the existing floor.

NOTE_ Verify That the shipping system including shipping bolts, spacers and cables are removed. This is a common issue when a new washer is installed.

SOURCE: Spin cycle is slow on Haier XQ8M22-C ... It used

sounds like a bad clutch heres a test for you to perform put the unit on spin and when it first starts off use your hand against the side to slow the spin cycle down thats against the inside of the drum if the drum stops or slows way down then you need a new clutch. In order to change the clutch you have to remove the cover from the machine once you do this then you would disconnect the pump then the motor and finally you would end up having to drop the transmission down from underneath if you look up inside of the machine when the transmission is removed you will a plastic piece as well this is called the brake the cluth is located on the spline of the transmission and usually when i personally replace a clutch i also include a new brake the reason behind this would be allthe gearing pieces that turn the drum and stop the drum would be new besides the transmission make the unit last alot longer as well if you have any further questions please message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation Thanks again
p.s clutch is the round circular object around the spline of the transmission if you are not handy at repairing appliances please call a technician usual price to change a clutch is between 150-189 depending on where you live thats with labor the acutual piece is probably 30 dollars if you wish to order the piece you can contact marconeapplianceparts and they will be able to mail you the piece to your door

SOURCE: spin cycle doesn't work

bad drain pump or clogged drain line. some units have drain trap you can clean,if so you can clean it out yourself but will make a huge mess if you don't pinch close the drain hose between the tub and pump.

What does o L mean on the Cabrio 6th sense by whirlpool and how doe i fix?

The OL error code indicates that the washer is overloaded. If the washer is not overloaded, this would indicate either a drag on the drive system or the control board is failing. Be sure nothing is on the floor under the washer that could be causing a problem. Raise the lid & manually spin the basket, it should spin freely. If not, you may have an item stuck between the spin basket and the washer tub. The image below shows how to remove the spin basket. If you unplug the washer and follow that procedure, you may find the cause of your problem. I recommend scheduling for a technician to come out to diagnose and repair your washer.

Haier hlp23e washer makes a rattling sound during spin that almost sounds like coins being slapped by an impeller. How do I fix?

Here's what I did that seemed to fix it. You know that plastic attachment you screwed onto the bottom? I'm pretty sure the noise is made by the bottom of the machine spinning against it. I thought the noise sounded sort of plastic-y, so I removed the bottom and sure enough, there were circular scratch marks on it. I haven't heard that annoying rattling yet.

Non-spinning washer

Have you checked the motor? Make sure that the motor is turning properly and also make sure that your belt it not to tight. It should have some give in it. If none of that works then look at the main bearing under the pulley on the drum
