Wl37t26 washer problems

"tickling" sound coming from pump area regardless of wether machine is in wash or rinse or spin, almost like a small object in volute, or flap of a belt smacking something.... comes and goes On/ off, discharge, and circulating pumps seem to be working effectively. can a link to a diagram be given so I can diagnose source of this new noise? loads go through, but if I need to give a pump an enema of bits of sand, or a small pocket treasure, would like a map of to where, and how to.

check for a clogged pump. follow the drain line connections to locate it. spin and rinse will not happen until after a majority of the soapy water has been removed

What's your problem?70seeries washing machine agitates great, will not spin or drain.


Hello.


If your washer is indeed a WFL2066, than the not spinning is directly relatedto the unit not draining.

These machines by design cannot spin if the drain is inadequate.

Here is the first step in resolving the problem, you need to access the drainpump/filter to clean it.

To reach the filter and clean it...

**Unplug the washer from the dryer or wall, or turn off the 30amp breakerat the home service panel...safety first**

1) Open the small square plastic door at the right bottom of thewasher.

2) Via the small hose drain any access water from the pump...this is where a wet/dry shop-vac comes in handy, or a shallow pan with a few towels works as well.

3) Then turn the pump insert/button trap counter clock-wise and pull out.Clean the trap out thoroughly running it under hot water and mild soap or your washer detergent and inspect inside the pump for any other foreign objects/obstructions.

4) Re-install the lint trap insuring it is good and snug/tight. Before closing up the small access door, run a short rinse spin cycle to check forleaks.

Has a new motor, add detergent, close door. Indicator says laundr


Hello, welcome to Fixya.

Based on your description I'd suspect something is in the pump or you're either...

a) using too much detergent, even too much "HE" will cause problems with the rinse & spin cycles.

b) the wrong type of detergent

These machines must have "HE" type detergent's added to them only. Non -"HE" will not allow them to spin to there potential, cause damage and sometimes not spin at all.

Here's how to check the pump...
If your washer is indeed a WFL2060, this is how to reach the filter and clean it.
( If it is not a WFL2060 as the post indicates, please let me know and I can provide assistance on another model as it pertains to you ).

Let me know how you make out, or if you require further assistance.

Washer won't drain/rinse/spin


it may be a pressure switch fault. Remove the top cover (lid) and look for a round object with a small rubber pipe coming of it and a electrical connector with 2 or 3 wires, replace this part.

Bosch washing machine won't drain and the door won't open.


Sounds like you have a blocked pump.To empty the machine manually lower the drain hose into a bowl or bucket.Once emptied the door should open.On most modern machines there will be a filter behind the kick plate at bottom front of machine, Check this for any foreign objects then try a spin before putting on again.If problem persists come for further options.

Miele washing machine model W713 front load - issues


If it is leaking from the waste pump area it may be blocked by a small piece of clothing like a sock or something similar! This will also cause it to take too long to complete a cycle. Remove the rubber hose onto the waste pump and check inside the hose and the pump, make sure the pump spins freely and that nothing is stuck in the hose pipes leading to the pump

F&P smart drive 601 washing machine will not advance from wash mode to rinse or spin mode


on those washers the waste water pump will get hair and **** wrapped around the shaft behind the pump fins. pull the washer forward and tip it back so you have access to under the front. on the right fron you will see a little pump. unplug the power clip and the ground wire. there will be a plastic tab you must bend a little so that you can twist the whole motor, not just the fin on the back, counter clockwise and remove. if you have water in the machine it will come pouring out. your machine will not rinse or spin if the waste water pump does not pump out enough water in its alloted time. when you have the motor out unscrew the pump fin cup thing and pull all the stuff off the pump. good luck.

Itis a 'no spin".


It sound like you have a blocked pump. Remove the pump from the machine and check where do you have this clogged, inside the pump or in one of the pipes connected to it. Good luck!
