    Hi,
    You hear just the same sounds as before. The filters are clean. Could it be something to do with the drum? It rotates by hand but when the cycle is switched on it doesn't move. However some water has got into the drum. Can you help please?

    No, it's a front loader.

Try both sides HOT and COLD. is there a difference in pressure. do you just hear a humming sound when it is trying to fill? if yes, you need a new fill valve or you need to clean the filters. take the hoses off the back of the washer get a bucket and see if you have good ppressure comeing out of the lines. then check your screens at your washers fill valve see if they are clogged with sand. let me know how it goes

There is not enough water in my machine?


On mine, it does not swim clothes in water, but certain parts of the cycle, you do see water in the machine.

1) are the clothes damp at the end of the wash?
2) more importantly, are the clothes clean?
3) do you see / hear water enter on cycle start?

My suggestions:

1) loosen / remove the fill hose and verify you have water pressure in the fill hose.
2) read on this forum for test cycle proceedure. Run tests.
3) if it truly had no water, I am sure there would be an error code. Look that code up.
4) Download the manual, and follow their test / fix steps.

Note: the test proceedure, error codes and manual are mentioned by helpers in posts where I have had questions. See if you can look up my previous posts.

Blessings,
Darryl

I have whirlpool LHW0050PQ4 washer, after connect prower, start light is flash and hear click but no water in and is not working


Hello.

It can be tempting to ignore washing machine noises, especially if the machine is still working. But washing machine noise is not only annoying, it can also be a sign of serious damage. When armed with a few tips, you can determine what problem may be causing your washing machine to rattle, and what you can do to stop it.

1 Check for drum bearing failure if your washing machine is noisy on the spin cycle. Drum bearing failure is common when the bearing seals start allowing water to enter. You can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand, and if the drum rumbles, replace the bearings.

2 Turn the drum by hand and listen for loud noises. If the drum itself is split or the 'spider' is corroded, broken or has come apart from the back of the drum it will create a loud noise on every turn of the drum. (When the bearings have gone bad, the noise is constant the entire time the drum is spinning.)

3 Look for obvious dents and creases in the drum or look for coins or small objects stuck inside the tub underneath the drum when a horrendous noise is made while clothes are in the tub.

4 Clear the water pump from obstructions like coins or small objects when a noise occurs while the washing machine is emptying water.

5 Remove the sump hose and look for bra wires if you hear a light scraping noise when the drum is turned by hand. You can also check to make sure a wire isn't poking out of one of the holes in the drum. In this case, you can pull the wire out easily with pliers.

6 Take the belt off and run the motor alone if you hear a high pitched squealing noise to check for motor bearing damage or wear. If you still hear the noise without the belt, it's the motor bearing.

Thanks.

Whirlpool Duet:drum fills up with water when machine is off.


Your problem is the water inlet valve has failed part # AP3128776 This is fairly common especially if you have hard water or well water.
Just enter that # at www.appliancehelponline.com

My front loader washing machine is making a kind of squeaky noise when it spins. The washer is working..but wondering what it could be.


If the noise comes from the drum rather than the back of the machine it could be the drum bearings on their way out.
With the drum empty take hold of the top and bottom of the drum edge (from inside the drum). Gently try to lift and lower the drum, you may hear a slight knock - that's the bearings failing. Water enventually gets past the seal on the bearing and degergent in the water dissolves the grease in the bearing, causing it to fail.

WHIRLPOOL WASHING MACHINE AWO/D 5716 - CANNOT LOCATE PUMP


Remove the bottom casing covering the front of the machine just above the floor. Unscrew the circular cap SLOWLY- beware of vast amounts of water escaping though!
I had to use a low height roasting pan to catch water, and just unscrew the cap enough so as to control the flow of water, and enable to empty water away until its all gone. Incidentally, an old hairgrip was found to be the cause of my problem.
Confusingly, "clean pump" meant clean filter!

2003 Whirlpool Duet Washer clear water pooling in drum after use.


When the machine is off, there are only two ways water could possibly enter. 1 Check the drain hose install, that it is not installed deep in the standpipe, if the hose is shoved too deep, it can sometimes siphon (rare with front loaders) water back into the machine.
2. Most likely cause, a slow leak from the water valve. Sometimes the water solenoid will not close completely, and you will get a very, very slow leak into the machine.
If not the drain hose, try shutting off the water supply valves when done using the machine, if that takes care of it, you may want to replace the machine's inlet valve.

Whirlpool washing machine (model LLR 9245 B) does not work


If it's a top loader, the coupler is broken. It's located between the motor and the gearcase. If you put it in spin and hear the motor run, this is your problem. It drains because the pump is mounted on the opposite side of the coupler and will be un-affected

Whirlpool washing machine, top load


hi without further investigation its a bit hit or miss , does the whole tub tilt or is it just the inner drum ?
if its just the inner drum then it sounds like the bearings are on there way out
if its the whole tub then it could be one of the springs that it hangs from or the shock absorber underneath that may have come adrift
hope this helps

Whirlpool washing machine


You could have a hole in the pump. Check to see where the water is coming from after removing the cabinet, or tip the machine back.
