Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

1 Answer

Whirlpool Cabrio top load washer bleach and detergent will overflow.

Ran the machine through the automatic diagnostic test and both the bleach dispenser and the detergent dispenser overflowed. Water from the bleach dispenser will leak onto the floor, while water from the detergent dispenser will flow into the tub. I can duplicate the problem in the automatic diagnostic test mode but not the manual. In manual mode, I can run the valves forever, switching between hot, warm, and cold water settings without an issue. A repairman tested the resistance of the water inlet valve solenoids and stated they were fine. He recommend replacing the control board at a cost of $436.00. After running numerous automatic and manual diagnostics tests, the overflowing only occurred once more, when in the beginning it happened every time. Is the water inlet valve the culprit and not the control board? Whirlpool has a service point bulletin that recommends changing the bleach dispenser for overflow problems.

Change the bleach dispenser.

Also make sure the tubes are not slightly clogged from residue build up of mildew.

Try cleaning your inlet valve filters. Turn off your water supply and remove the hoses from the washer. The filter screens are located just inside of the valves. Just twist them out, clean, and reinstall.

Good luck.

Check cold hose to see if it is clogged or the filter in the end of it is. Make sure water freely coming out from the tap. If that is all ok then replace the watter control valve on the cold side.

Bleach not dispenseing


It only fills with hot water. Make sure that there the hot water flow to your machine is ok. Have you tried running diagnostics? If you do the manual test the 3rd operation is to test the distribution system when set to bleach dispense. Its possible that the dispenser motor or the dispenser contacts have a problem. You can see the parts easily by taking off the top panel of the washer.

Soap dispenser is still full after 4 trys. I ran the washer with the dispenser out and it seems that the water is not coming out of the jets above the soap dispenser, only the bleach dispenser?


Did you try cleaning up the water filters where the water hoses connect to the washer in the back? I had mine clogged with sediment one time and water was not coming out properly.

How do I get the bleach dispenser to drain?


Hello Denise C - There are several things that could cause the bleach to not dispense into the washer. Are you sure the liquid in the dispenser after the wash is bleach? If it is pure bleach, the solenoid that lets the water into the dispenser is not working. This solenoid is located on the back of the dispenser. It only gets voltage during the dispense time and fills the bleach dispenser with water. The bleach dispenser fills while the washer is filling for the rinse cycle.



When the washer begins to fill for the rinse cycle, the bleach solenoid is energized and water flows into the bleach dispenser cup. When the cup is full the water siphons out and bleach and water flow into the tub.



If the liquid in the bleach dispenser is pure bleach you may need a technician to diagnose and repair the problem. The voltage will have to be tested to the bleach solenoid and a volt meter is required.



If the liquid in the bleach dispenser is water you probably need to clean the dispenser cup. Scum will build up in the siphon tube and stop the liquid from going into the washer tub. The incoming water will dilute the bleach and overflow the dispenser cup and run into the tub.



Remove the insert from the bleach and fabric softener compartments. Clean the bottom of the insert and the bleach and fabric softener compartments. Reinstall the insert and put the drawer back inside the washer.



To test the siphon action slowly pour water into the bleach compartment. When the water level goes above the maximum line stop pouring. The water should all drain out. You may also test the fabric softener compartment the same way.



I do hope this information proves to be helpful.

Soap dispenser overflowing with water


You will have to pull the dispenser tray out and clear any debris. I've seen a sock in one (who knows how that got there,) toys and even a glob of laundry detergent pods leavings.

I have a Cabrio washer model #WTW7340XWO. I have had 4 shirts ruined with bleached out spots all over them after washing in this machine. We use NO bleach in the detergent. What is wrong?


Hi

It seems that it needs cleaning... you can run your washer with nothing inside it at its hottest temperature setting with 2 cup of vinegar inside the unit. After this clean the drain pump assembly completely, also clean the drain hose and drain pump filter, the spots should disappear after doing all this. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

I do most of my shopping online and liquid bleach sometimes doesn't ship without breaking. Is it OK to use dry or powder bleach? I have the whirlpool cabrio top load large capacity model.


It should be okay to use dry bleach, if you follow the instructions on the bleach. Some bleaches require dissolving in water first, others can be used dry.
