My washer (whirlpool duet) seems to cancel in the middle of load cycle. Most often the word "suds" is displayed. It is not the amount of detergent or the type because I use very little High Efficiency...


SUDS LOCK (Overdose of Detergent detected during the Wash Cycle)

The motor control unit senses a suds lock condition by analyzing the current draw on

the drive motor. If "Sud" is displayed a potential suds lock is detected. This may

signify a bad pump, an extra heavy load, excessive detergent, or excessive suds.

ERROR CODES

DISPLAY EXPLANATION AND RECOMMENDED PROCEDURE


Suds

6 - 7

Potential Causes

• If too much detergent was used, run the unit through a Rinse/ Spin cycle then a

Normal cycle without adding any detergent. This should clear the unit of the

excess detergent.

• Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked

• Check Wire Harness connections to the Drain Pump, Pressure Switch, and

Central Control Unit (CCU)

• Check/ Clean Drain Pump Filter of foreign objects

• Check Drain Pump

• Check the Pressure Switch

• Check CCU

I have a whirlpool ultimate care 2 super capacity plus washing machine. We had it for about 7 years, just yesterday it stated to make an unusual noise when it was in spin cycle. As of today the washing...


My LSQ9549L is 7 yrs. old as well with an awful sound when spinning in high speed.
I've changed the agitator assy. as well as removed the drum and cleaned the soap build up on it.
Still makes a terrible sound in high speed spin. All other functions work.
Could it be the springs or coupling? I'm leaning towards it being the counter balance springs with it being rather weak. Could I be correct?
Your help is much appreciated.

My kemore 80 series washer wont spin

Problem 1. Major gear sounding grinding during spin mode. Major vibration also.

Problem 2. Spin problem. Most times the washer would drain but wouldn't spin unless the lid was raised and lowered. (According to wife, this problem has been on-going for two years).

After checking motor coupling (a bit worn but intact), drive block (you don't need a spanner wrench to remove it, a 12 - 14 inch pipe wrench works great) which was OK, clutch, seemed OK, we determined that the problems were in the transmission.

Two options, 1 spend $150 plus for a transmission.
2. Open it up and see if anything seemed seriously bad.

After looking at the transmission parts list (available on a number of sites) and on the Whirlpool site (Whirlpool makes Kenmore)

http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%20W10114743.pdf

the first problem seemed to be related to the agitator cam and cam follower not raising the agitator gear high enough (probably less than a 1/16th of an inch) above the agitator cam.

Found the right part number (Whirlpool part # 62580 / 81) which includes both the cam and follower. Bought one for about $10.50, installed it, put washer back together and problem 1 was solved.

Looked again at parts list and noticed that the one of the cams in the neutral assembly which is supposed to have a small spring, didn't on ours when we tore the transmission apart again.

Those cams/gears etc. keep the washer from spinning until all of the water is pumped out and then go into spin mode. Apparently, by opening and closing the lid, torque from the motor starting throws the cams into the right gears so that the washer will spin.

Found the part number for a kit (Whirlpool part number 388253 Neutral Assembly) for $15.00 and replaced the cams and gears.

Put the washer back together and I now have a happy wife. Everything works as it should.

NOTE. Fixing the washer takes a little mechanical ability (wrenches, socket sets, screw drivers, vice grips, short pipe wrench) and a solid desire to save some money.

All told parts cost less than $30 (I also replaced the old transmission oil with 80-90 weight oil from an auto parts store) saving over $125.

Washer is loud, and won't spin or agitate


check the motor bushes,and also check for bearings in drum you can check this by lifting the inner drum up and down if you feel a knocking noise then this will be the bearings have worn.

GE Front Loading Washing Machine seems to be holding water....


The high speed spin of a front load washer should normally do a good job of getting squeezing out the water but if there is an oversudsing condition that makes it hard for the drain pump to operate then the suds and water will just stay there. First make sure there is no actual clog in the drain line then run a load with no soap or detergent and see what happens. It's always better to use a low suds detergent with this type of machine

Leak from maytag top load coin machine during spin drain cycle only


Possible that you would have a tub seal leak if it is only noticable during spin cycle. Possible that it "drips" slightly while in agitation, but not enough to notice it. While in spin mode you have a lot more parts moving as well as a lot more water pressure on the seal itself. Pump could also be leaking, but highly doubtful since it would leak a constant amount at all times. Good Luck!!! Jim
