Re: spin cycle

I think you have a worn belt or other drive system (whatever your model uses). If it spins with a push-start but you can tell it is still not spinning as fast as it should, then more than likely that is what it is. If you are the least bit handy you can fix it yourself. I would suggest that you get a parts list with an exploded view (usually available online) and you shoould be able to figure what drives the machine (belt?) and getting a new one. Put aside a couple of hours to work on this. I like to get the machine face (front) down on a comforter. the access to the component you want to replace is usually from the bottom of the machine, but you may luck out and it is from the back.

How do i set the clock on Whirlpool built in double oven? Can't find a model number. 5 buttons from left to right. Alarm bell, clock with hand at 12, clock with hand at 3, + and - signs. Pleas

The model number is usually located on the side of the door or on side of the oven cavity area near the door opening. Sometimes if you have a drawer or warmer the model number is located on the oven side of the drawer or warmer (sometimes not directly facing you but on the side of that area. If the oven is electronic you press a clock button or you hold one of those buttons for a couple of seconds like a start or set button. The model number though will help you find a user manual and it for sure should be clear. I hope this helps you.

I have misplaced the manual for my oven and I need the self cleaning instructions. Model # RF365PXDQ0 Serial # FE2007966

First remove the racks, broiler pan (complete) and any aluminum foil that is in the oven. Hand clean any large deposits inside the oven. Use a non-abrasive cleanser, not an oven cleaner. Clean around the door frame and the edge of the door (outside of the gasket) with hot water and detergent. Close the door to the oven and make sure there are no plastic utensils near the vent of the oven. Make sure that your kitchen is well ventilated.

Next move the lock lever to the right. Set the Oven Selector and Oven Temperature both to Clean. Make sure that the clock, Start and Stop times are set to the correct time. Then push in and turn the Stop time knob clockwise to 3 hours (normal cycle). Make sure the Start time knob is not pushed in. Now wait for the cleaning cycle to be completed and for the oven to cool down. The lock lever can not be moved back to the left until the oven is cool. Forcing it will break it. Turn the Oven Selector and the Oven Temperature knobs to Off.

The manual is available here: . If the direct link doesn't work, start here: and enter the model number and then click Go.

I hope this helps.

He4 tub won't spin. It fills with water and drains out but wont spin

Hello cnt.... If it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows: If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt. If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. If your washer pumps out the water but doesn't spin, check these: The lid switch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn't spin. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. The motor coupler may be broken. Many Whirlpool-manufactured washers use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. You may need to replace it. A belt may be broken. Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.) The clutch may be worn. If your washer is a GE, it may use a clutch to come up to the proper spin speed. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the unit from spinning well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician. The drive motor may be defective. Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor. The transmission may not be shifting properly. Older washers produced by Whirlpool have a transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective, the unit may drain the water but not spin. This is a complex system, if your washer has a shifter problem, you may want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it. The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized. These components allow the inner tub to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this is the problem, you usually hear a loud sound during the spin cycle. Call a qualified appliance repair technician.

Pop the front cover off by using a putty knife to push the clips in (2) at the seam where it meets the washer's top. Pull the thin hose off the left side of the tub and clean it out. (do this with the tub empty) replace tube and front panel and you are good to go.

Explaination: The goop in the tube prevents air from escaping as the water level droped, thus the washer thinks it is still full of water. If it thinks it is full of water, it will not fill any more, nor will it spin.

To prevent this from re-occouring, I'd suggest filling the machine to the lowest level with hot water and adding several cups of bleach. Run the cycle (with no clothes) to help clear out the goop. Use an extra large rinse to make sure there is no bleach residue before doing a load of clothing again. Do this about once every 3 months, and I don't think you'll see the problem again.

I do not have the manual for a Whirlpool SelfCleaning oven Model wcp58580. I just want the instructions on how to get it to the self clean feature. Thanks, Mary

There is something wrong with the model number you've provided. Generally, there is often a door latch to move. Many older units have a door shield which needs to be positioned before starting to protect glass. Set the length of time you'd like the unit to run and set the control to clean. You may also have to set the temperature to clean. If you have a mechanical timer, set it so the stop portion is about 2.5 hours later than the time you're starting the cycle.

If you get the correct model number, you can get access to the manual at
