Computer panel Here I thought I was getting a good machine. I have had this machine for a little over a year and I have the problem with it not draining. thanks. I do have another problem that just started. The cycle stops at 25 min and then you have to push the start button to get it going. Tonight the control panel start humming and the machine wasn't even on. Is the computer panel going? Has anyone had this similiar problem and have a solution without paying a fortune for a repair man?

Re: computer panel

Your second prob is related to the first. First plug off the wall.
Check your outlet filters, clean out. The machine will not spin if the filter is blocked. Also check your inlet into the machine. Clean screens on both ends of the pipes. Refit carefully. If you have manual, check for filter cleaning.

Re the electrical connection check out your wall socket

Drum not spinning

Hi I'm Peter, Usually most problems as such have to do with the washer control switch that you use to adjust heavy, permanent press , or delicate cycle.. you will need to unplug the unit the dial should pull straight off with a little effort You will need to remove the screws in the back panel to access the wiring. You will at this time most likely take the top off above the switch. Most washers are made only by a couple of companies, Roper being one that makes a good portion for the name brand ones so all they do is put their name on it. Regardless go to the local appliance parts ware house ask around or check the yellow pages take your make, model, year if you have it and serial number and explain to them your problem and tell them you think it is the washer control switch and see if they have had to sell many. Odds are this is going to be your problem. Every washer I have ever owned and I keep them a pretty good while until my wife wants a new one I have had to eventually replace the controller. Good luck.

I am looking to buy a used Frigidaire GLWS1233AS2 Top Load Washer and GLER331AS2 . They are supposed to be 3 years old. Are they good machines or do they have lots of problems?

Mine is 10 yrs old and I am just now having a problem. Clothes are too damp after last spin cycle. Hopefully, I'll get an answer here soon. Another problem I noticed a few months after I got it, with this model, is the fabric softener dispenser on top of the agitator. You have to remove it every single time and clean it. I added a little water to it before adding fabric softener and thought that would help to stretch the cleaning to maybe once or twice a week. Don't do it! I started to smell mildew and found out why. The agitator shaft that this dispenser sits on was caked with old fabric softener. I just use the blue Downey ball now. The fabric dispenser stinks but I have had 10 yrs of good washing.

My whirlpool wfs1273bd leaks water from under the detergent draw when the hot water goes into the machine what should I do?

This product has to be my most hated product in the entire house. We have had nothing but issues with this piece of junk. 2 days ago water and foam started pouring out the soap dispenser and across the laundry floor. Not to anyones surprise as this machine has been a dud for 2 years.
So i finally got to looking at this tonight, and was blown away by a) what tiny little thing caused it, and b) the simplicity of it (did it in 1/2 hour) when I thought this was going to be a all night job with 1000 parts across the floor.
How its done:
  1. Remove the power and water pressure from the washer
  2. Remove the 3 screws at the rear of the machine on the top plastic trim (that hold the top of the machine on.
  3. Slide top panel of the machine towards the back, it will become dislodged from the front control panel.
  4. Remove the soap dispenser tray
  5. Undo the 3 screws in the soap dispenser frame, that join the front panel to the water mixing chamber
  6. Undo the two screw on top of the front control panel that are exposed from removing the top panel of the machine
  7. There are two clips, either side of the control panel inside the machine that hold the front panel on. I could undo the one opposite to the soap drawer, but I couldn't get the other, so jiggle the control sideways (left and right) and applied a pulling pressure and it came free. Rest the control panel on top of the drum, I didn't undo any cables, they seem to stretch over the front on top of the machine.
  8. Remove the bottom sump panel - apply a inward pressure on the top of the sides of the panel, and pull outwards. It will hinge away with the hinge on the bottom of the machine.
  9. Undo the screws that attach the entire front panel including door (two on top far sides, and 3 across the bottom.
  10. Pull the entire front panel forwards gently, and the lining between the front panel and drum will stretch out about 2 inches.
  11. Reach in around the front panel and you can see the black tube run down from the soap mixing box, into the main drum.
  12. Gently yank/pull the black tube away from the main drum, it has a rubber flange on the other side that stops it coming out, but it will come through.
  13. See if you can clear the blockage in the tube (if there is), you may need a pair of pliers to remove the black tube from the bottom of the soap box.
  14. Assembly is the reverse, ensure that you get a good seal on the tube back into the drum. I did this by forcing the flange back into the drum, further than it was originally, and slowly and gently pull it back out, until the drum lip pops into the ring on the rubber tube.

Notes: Dont lose the screws in the soap box down the tube, its a absolutely huge job to open the drum. Put a towel ontop of the floor drain in your laundry, its a icky job to retrieve that!
Good luck, and never buy a Whirlpool machine again!8_27_2012_9_31_19_am.jpg8_27_2012_9_32_25_am.jpg8_27_2012_9_33_06_am.jpg8_27_2012_9_33_59_am.jpg8_27_2012_9_34_42_am.jpg8_27_2012_9_36_14_am.jpg8_27_2012_9_36_34_am.jpg

Hi I have an electrolux 7kg ecovalve ewf087 - it first started with the place where I put the washing powder etc filling up with water after the cycle- so I thought I would clean the drain pump filter...

Make sure you put the filter cap on tightly There is a little plastic piece it has to line up with, Recheck all the hoses. Remove the access panel and start the washer see where it is leaking. If you need further assistance please comment me back.

Whirlpool front loader washer does not move further on programs. Only the water inlet and water drain program works. Other wash and rinse programs does not work.

You may want to check into your warranty status. I work for a rent to own service and have seen this quit often. Most of the time when service calls us, it's the front control panel going out. You should really get a whirlpool tech to check it out.
FYI.... There is a compartment located behind the bottom panel on the front of you machine which catches all your change in a little box. You can remove that panel farely easy. Just thought you might like to know.

Fisher and Paykel IW810AU fault code 105

I have found out from a repair agent that the fault code means there is no or corrupted communications between the display and motor drive module.

It may be simple as a loose cable, if the washing machine has been moved recently.

In my case I have a very slow little leak in the hot water solinoid (Bad spelling I know) thus causing it to leak on the circuit board and over time rust the connections. Basically my machine was not worth repair as the main circuit board was a tad too expensive. It was still cheaper than a new one (even after all the extra costs were put into consideration, ie - Labor and transport costs) but my machine is 8 years old and I thought for an extra couple of hundred dollars I could get a new one with warranty.

I know there are people out there bagging these machines, but 8 years out of a item (without any servicing) that uses moving parts, electricity and water is pretty good.

Hope this helps?

5 yr old washer is leaking

Ellbee, remove the two screws at the bottom of the front panel and lift it towards you. Two clips on the top that hold it will release. You can now get a good look at the pump. back.
