Question about Washing Machines

2 Answers

Hi I have a Whirlpool 6th Sense Washing Machine - AWM8143. I is washing and spinning perfectly well and there are no error codes. However when it spins the machine makes a grating squeaking noise that is extremely loud. When the machine is not working and I turn the drum manually I hear the same noise. It is almost a grating noise. Any ideas what the problem is?

Hi,
looks like there is some friction between the main and outer tub of your machine. there is generally a mechanism for smooth spinning of the machine in good rpms for wash-spin cycle. this could be because of rust formation, or mud collection. please refer your manual and remove the 3 screws behind the lower front plastic cover, and look for rust formation. scrape the rust and try spinning again.

cheers

Fault code F11 on whirlpool AWM8143 6th sense mwashing machine


got this from another site....


Starting to see these fault codes pop up in these otherwise fine machines. The F/11 code is just a generic code generated when there’s a communications error between the two main control boards in the washer. These two boards are the motor control unit(MCU) and the central control unit(CCU).
A common problem is the wiring harness jiggling loose; remove and reseat it and that usually fixes it. If not, then you’re looking at spending some money on control boards. Yes, I said boards, plural. The really sucky part is that there’s no way to definitively and conclusively prove which board, the MCU or the CCU, is at fault so, unfortunately, that only leaves the parts changing monkey method: replace both boards,


But, on a brighter note, the electronics are covered under warranty for 24 months. If your machine is older that this, then you’ll need to shell out some shekels


tnx 4 using fixya,
