Why would a whirlpool duet sport model number WFW8300SW05 starts fine stops during cycle. No error codes door locked red light on water in machine.


you have a plugged or partial plugged drain pump for sure. maybe there is a 20 stuck in it this time! easy to find just follow the drain hose back and you will find your pump.
also could be the cycle your using has a bad area in timing cct. check a different cycle like the delicate cycle and that will confirm pump or cycle

Every couple of days there is a puddle of water coming from unit..shut off water source and still leaked water?! HELP!


Is the hose from the freeze compartment in the drain pan? Or is the drain pan leaking? The unit is going into a defrost and that is where the water is coming from. It drains into a drain pan where it evaporates over time......Check the drain line and the drain pan. Is there ice in the bottom on the freezer maybe the drain is pluged inside and the excess is seeping out the door during defrost. Hope this helps....

I have kenmore washer. when I open door, I found water in there. So i drain water and washed. After two day, I found same level water in cabinet. I think water leak in side or didn't operate water presure...


If the machine is not pumping the water out during the spin cycle, then it could be a couple of things. First, it could be that the cycle timer is faulty and needs to be replaced, or it could be that the water pump is bad and that needs to be replaced. Either way, the repair is cheaper than a new machine.

It is leaking water from the freezer into the refrigerator


During the defrost cycle heaters inside the walls of the freezer turn on to melt the frost. The melted frost "water" is supposed to drain into a pan under the fridge where it will evaporate. I think the drain line from the freezer to this pan may be blocked. I'd also check the seal on the freezer door. If it's not sealing well it lets a lot of moisture into the freezer which means more water during the defrost cycle. I'd also recommend checking to make sure the ice maker is not leaking.

It sounds like you have a frozen drain. google your specific model on how to take the freezer panel off and take a turkey baster full on hot water and run it down the drain line unitl it clears. Once its clear if you have a calrod heater (it will look like an electric bake element on an oven) take a piece of heavy copper wire (ground wire for a recepticle) and run it down the drain line about an inch and a half. This will conduct heat from the element down the drain line during a defrost cycle and help prevent the problem for happenening again.

let me know if this helps

Drain in freezer plugs up


sometimes can be solved by loosely coiling a piece of solid copper wire around the defrost heating element and down into the drain a little. the radiant heat on the wire during defrost cycle may help keep the drain open

Leaking water dispenser

Kenmore freezer


Try cleaning out the drain opening with a pipe cleaner. Or use a turkey baster and force hot water into the drain. Rinse with a mild bleach solution to kill any mold. Another solution is to unplug the unit and let it sit for a couple of days to defrost completely. Sometimes during the humid summer the system just gets over burdened and doesn't defrost completely. This gets progressivly worse until you get this problem.

Automatic defrost


Defrost water only drains during the defrost cycle. Defrost frequency depends on make and model of the individual refrigerator/freezer. It could be the time period when you are checking that gives the impression that it is continuously draining.
