Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

1 Answer

No spin cycle

My washer will not go into the spin cylcle. I noticed the switch has fallen. I need to get in to get to the switch and i'm not sure how. I don't know the model # of my machine. It is full of water & I can't move it. Can you explain to me how to get to the switch?

Its a top load, switch in on the right as you are facing the washer. It's an extra large capacity. We bought it new between '99 & '00.

Whirlpool? The model number should be under the lid or on the back of the console. If you have a floor drain you can drop the drain hose and water (not all) will run out. The cabinet is removed to repair this. The console will have 2 screws either in the back corners or the front corners that go down into the top. The console will flip back giving access to the switch harness and the cabinet clips.Unplug the harness remove the 2 clips and tip the cabinet towards you. Switch is underneath. If you remove the plug end off the old switch and tie the black and gray wires together (Green should be the one connected to the cabinet) it can be used as a temporary jumper to get the water to drain while you get another switch.

Have a kenmore washer and I have to run everything thru 2 spins cycle


If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn clutch.

5D ERROR KEEPS COMING ON. IT WILL NOT FINISH THE SPING=N AND DRAIN CYLCLE


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error 5d means too much detergent was used. Try the following procedure---

Run the unit through a RINSE/SPIN cycle.
Run a NORMAL cycle without adding any detergent.

This should clear the unit of the excess detergent. If still the problem persists, then please check the following things--



1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections to the drain pump, pressure switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. Check drain pump.
7. Check the pressure switch.
8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test or any cycle and replace the part that has gone bad.



Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Ok so my washer runs fine until rinse or spin cylcle then it kind of works for a minute then does a weird thing where it clicks off and on after a couple minutes it stops completely after 5 or so more...


It really sounds like a timer issue. The electrical contacts inside the timer are worn and not sending voltage to the motor. It is what we call a "dead spot". If it really works well in other cycles that would be a tell tale sign.

How do I fix my Kenmore washer spin cylcle? It


if your machine is a top load , less than 15 yrs. You most likely need a new lid switch. The machine will not drain or spin if the top lid is open.

Will not discharge water or go into spin cylcle.


I would have to guess you have a dead spot in the timer. If it stops moving, it would still tick like a clock but the internals of it are not catching to send it into discharge and spin.

Won't pump out water at the end of wash or rinse cycle.


I don't know this model at all, but hada similar set of syptoms on an electrolux .....

Just a thought, but have you checked the pump chanber is not impeded by a stray hairgrip, or bit of wire?

The fact it doesn't pump when it should, but allows water to pass when the centrifugal force of a spin cycle builds up, would indicate that maybe its the pump that either has a jammed impeller, or a blown motor (or fuse).
