Possible the leak comes from under the tub. Remove the wall plug & take off the rear panel. Check to see if the hose from the under the tub is secure, it could be the grip clip below the hose has come off. This is where it connects to the pump section. You need a grip plier or something to get it back on securely. If this is not the case take a good look to see where the leak comes from.

Next is the door gasket, maybe a tear.

Not spining properly on daily load cycle


Make sure door mechanism is working at fine. So next is to check whether the motor tumbles both directions.
The spin bearing might be a problem, but normally you'd hear a problem here first. Have you heard any freight trains passing through the house in the spin cycle?
One thing to check for this problem is the spin speed switch. If the spin speed switch is bad then the control won't know how fast to spin, and so it will just not spin at all.
The drain pump must be draining all the water out. If the water doesn't drain out then the pressure switch won't read empty and that might prevent a spin cycle.
I hope this helps.
Please reply with additional details for further assistance.

My whirpool duet washing machine is locked. The cycle doesn't get completed and indicates F02. We tried to unplug it, change ccyle and numerous times the pause-cancel button. How do I just get to...


The F/02 error indicates that your washing machine is not draining properly and thus taking too long to drain the water:
  • Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
  • With Power OFF: Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects: make sure you empty the washing machine water via the hose next to the pump filter cover first without flooding your floor! Incidentally, draining all the water will unlock the door.
  • If the above does not correct the problem, you will need to get the pump replaced.
Hope the information is useful: let me know how you go!

My wash machine wash the clothes but not doing the final spin, all the clothes all soak and wet


Handyman here -

Its possible that the door is not locking properly. If the door doesn't lock the machine will wash, but not spin the clothes dry. If you wait 15mins or so after machine is done, then set cycle to spin, it will pump any water that has dripped off your clothes out, but again it will not spin. Helps a little.

Good Luck!

Door locked and will not open. i ran an empty cycle to see if that would work and it doesn't.....thanks! Margit


IF water is left in machine then door wont unlock, check pump, run drain cycle. If pump runs but doesnt remove water, then check filter at bottom (small door on bottom front) water will come out when this is done. If washer is completely empty of water and door locked then you may access lock release tab from bottom or reaching down from top to lock asm. Then check lock

Machine locked up. Barrel quit spinning.


first you got to empty washer by manual,get a bowl on to the floor then pull the drain pipe out of the pipe that goes outside or from under the sink,empty washer this way then the door will open,as it wont open as a result of it having water in it,when you have done this make sure you check your motor bushes,im sure that they have worn,just replace them at a cost of £10.00,they are easy to replace.rgrds paul

Ran HE3 without Water, it's now locked up


Unplug the washer and wait 30 minutes, sometimes the next morning for the machine to reset. Make sure the water is on because it while find multiple failures and lock up, Secondly you can try putting the machine into diagnostic cycle to ensure it is ok. Press drain/spin and select no spin for spin speed finally press prewash quickly two or three times and let it run, any flashing codes?, hit prewash again after writing the codes down.

Can't Open the Washer Door---Our Clothes are held Hoatage


Check and ensure that the tubes and passages to the water level pressure sensor are not blocked by caked detergent, lint , etc.
( this may have caused the water overflow in the first place)
clean up the internal parts that are wetted by the overflow.

clean the door lock mechanism. ( this normally works on a temperature delay mechanism, if cleaning does not work, replace)

all the above done with the power unplugged and water inlets unplugged , of course
