Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Washer was working fine. Did 2 loads, no problems. On third load the water would come in for a few seconds and shut off, come in for a few seconds and shut off etc, then an alarm sounded and it stopped. I tried unplugging it for 30 seconds but the problem continues.

There could be a couple different solutions. A couple things to check and test anyways. 1. Is the water valve that lets water in to machine. The one in the machine, If you are able to access it, make sure it is completely open, Check your drain and screen, make sure there is nothing in there from last rinse cycle. Otherwise machine might not fill if it senses clogged drain.
Last possibility is a bad water level sensor or door switch which both can be tested with ohmmeter or muti-tester to make sure they are both working.

Whirlpool awm 8125 fault code F09 followed by FA


The drain pump runs constantly in an effort to drain the water. Unplug the washer and, if the washer is overfilled, check the water inlet valve assembly for proper shut-off of water flow. If the water inlet valve assembly is defective, replace it. If the washer is empty when this error code appears, replace the water-level pressure switch.

Was working fine and went to put in 2nd load and water came out for a second and then all together stopped


hmm, I can think of a few things that would cause that.

First thought would be the water valve: this is a valve that has two solenoids on it, one for hot and one for cold they mix to one outlet that goes to a spout into your washtub. Try different temperature settings for the water. If cold does not work, see if warm does, if it's nothing but hot water coming out, then it's either the valve or your timer.

Second is the timer's not sending power to the water valve to turn it on.

Third would be the water level switch, if it is bad it may be prematurely telling the washer to go into agitate mode. If after the water stopped it went to agitate mode then it very well could be the water level switch.

The machine stops after the wash cycle and won't finish.


The code is UE

load too small.
• Load is out of balance.
• The washer has an imbalance
detection and correction
system. If individual heavy
articles are loaded (bath
mat, bath robe, etc.) and the
imbalance is too great, the
washer will make several
attempts to restart the spin
cycle. If an imbalance is still
detected, the washer will stop
and the error code will be
displayed.
• Add 1 or 2 similar items to help balance the load.
• Rearrange items to help balance the load.

Washer trips circuit while filling tub


Sound like the inlet valve coil may be shorted. Remove console and check wires from water valve to control. If wires look ok, the inlet valve has a problem

Maytag top load won't drain


during spin is the tub making a slight roaring sound? if so the tub bearing is going bad causing the motor to work harder than normal causing it to heat up. this motor has a thermal protector which shuts it down , although the power to the timer remains therefore the timer still advances. this will require a new bearing and seal kit.
