Question about Whirlpool LCE4332P 2.1 cu. ft. Top Loading Washer

1 Answer

Washer works until the spin cycle, then it will not spin.

The water level light will then begin to flash. Sometimes it will not drain, other times it will drain but not spin. Thinking it has to do with low voltage in my old apartment.

    I found that my drainage pipe was below the minimum 39", so it wasn't draining properly. I raised the drain hose and it is now working.

This is not likely to be low voltage. Do you know what your voltage is?

Which model washer? What is the minimum voltage rating?

The mostly likely problem is that the valves have failed. These are something that is more likely to fail in washers. Probably the water level light flashes because it is not draining when it starts to spin. You can have the valves replaced by a professional or you might try it yourself. For example, see this part: http://www.partselect.com/PartDetail.aspx?Inventory=1583805&SourceCode=6 . They even have do-it-yourselvers' stories.

Dishwasher starts program, then few mins in pause/start button flashes "insufficient water supply". Checked all hoses and all clear. Anyone? Thank you. Glen


As soon as the waser begins the wash cycle pause, open door record water level in sump.

Close door and continue cycle until machine faults and stops.

Open door, record water level in sump.

Compare before and after. If level is low that the flapper valve that allows the water to drain is stuck open and the water is draining into the sink as the unit is washing.

To confirm, if the washer drain hose is connect to the neck of the disposal or sink drain, observe the drain after restarting the wash cycle from the beginning. If water is trickling out from the dishwasher while it is washing then it is confirmed the drain door is not closed if equipped with that configuration.

All washers have a process and hardware to drain. Some have a sepperate drain pump

Hope thisd helpd?

Samsung silvercare washer will not spin


How did you test the pump? These were my symptoms as well, and my pump was working intermittently. Sometimes, I could test the pump and it would work perfectly, and sometimes it would not work at all. Try running a load; the next time the machine won't spin, use the drain tube to drain water manually (I used a big shallow pan). There's a sensor in the washer that won't let spin start unless the water is below a certain level. In self-test mode, there's even a way to see what the machine is seeing as the water level. Anyway, let the water drain out manually with the drain tube; the machine should start spinning once the water is below the specified level. If the machine displays "Err" or "ND" before you have the chance to drain the water, you can hit pause once or twice and it will try to start the spin cycle again. To directly answer your question: If the machine will not start the spin cycle, it could be because the washer thinks the water level is not low enough to start the spin cycle. This could be because the water level is not low enough (ie a pump that's not working properly or a clogged hose), because the sensor that detects the water level is not working properly, or because the motherboard is malfunctioning. My discussion with a repair professional indicated that the pump is (by far) the most common culprit. I bought mine on Ebay very inexpensively (around $35, I think?). It is pretty quick and straightforward to disassemble the machine (check youtube for how-to videos). Just be careful -- they apparently used 2 different pumps more or less interchangeably on this model. Check if your pump is gray or black before ordering; I bought the wrong one. I made it fit because we needed the washer, but I ended up soldering the wires to the pump and re-routing some wires to make it work. It was a hassle. The electrical connector is different between the two pumps, so you'll be saving yourself a lot of hassle by ordering the right one.

Washer repeats entire cycle - does not stop at end of spin cycle.


It is possible that presence of moisture within the START button can trigger the cycle to continue as it keep the processor to continue the wash cycle,Hence you must remove the panel and board after disconnecting the wiring harness and use a hair dryer to warm off any presence of moisture on the panel and board. Do it with time to ensure there is no moisture within the panel.
I think this must solve the issue. Repeat the work many times as sometimes moisture and dirt together might form a conductive bond to trigger as a pressed on switch. If possible open panel to clean switch pad.

Hello there:
If your cycle does not complete or The cycle doesn't advance
When the cycle should advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem: It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. than check the cold water supply line and the filter

Water level high when spin/drain cycle begins.


The water level is higher when in the rinse mode; but it should never leak. Examine the interior through the rear, there should be a loose hose somewhere. Or at the filter area. Plug off the mains caution.

Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SW1: Won't drain


The washer drew half a tub of water on the "Bulky items" cycle, and stopped. All the lights on the cycle dial light up and flash, the machine beeps and the me error message in the "estimated time remaining" field is "Ld". I've tried to shut the machine down and change the cycle to "drain and spin" but it will not agitate, won't drain or spin.
