Hi, check the following trouble spots below. you will find the issue in one or, all the areas stated.


1. No power to the washer
Make sure there's power getting to the washer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the washer, if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.

2. Lid switch/door latch
The washing machine may not function if the lid switch or door latch mechanism is defective. The switch is usually located near the door. Replace if found defective.


**If you are getting power to the washer and, step 1 and 2 check out ok, replace the timer control or control Board and start switch as well.(You can test the continuity or, resistance level of the Lid/door switch with a multimeter(ohm).

Washing machine does not empty


see the causes and use the common sense, God bless you.
If your washer won't drain, check these: It spins, but doesn't pump It doesn't spin or pump It pumps, but the water returns It spins, but doesn't pump If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out. To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port. Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job. If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump. It doesn't spin or pump If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. 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. It pumps, but the water returns If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle, your washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck in the drain?) Also, check for these problems: If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess. If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.

Cannot start power washer


You will have to pull the cord 5-6 times for the fuel pump to fill up the carburetor. The carburetor doesn't have any fuel. Over the winter the carburetor dried up.

Washer won't start, control lock lite on?


Try unplugging the washer for 30 minutes. When you plug it back in, the power board should reset and allow you to start a new wash cycle.

F27 came up nearing the end of the spin cycle and just stops after it's spun but doesn't finish and release.


Close the washer and press the START/PAUSE/Cancel button to remove error displayed and restart the cycle. If it doesn't work, it means that the valve at the water entry needs to be replaced..

Hope this helps..

Hi i have a whirlpool WFS1072AW Front loader 7.5 kg we load the washer as normal press start and then this horible noise comes from the back no water goes in just the noise like gears grinding


Hello Steve.

First off is this a new washer?
If so front load washes ship with retaining plugs / pins in the back. They do this to stablize the drum in shipping so it doesn't get damaged. Check the back and see if this is the case. There should be 4 or so to remove. Also don't throw these out, if you ever need to move you will need them to make sure the washer doesn't get damaged.

Hope this helps.
Good luck

Washer continues to fill after full, then spills all over floor until manual shut off


This is an indication of a pressure switch malfunction. Post back with your washer brand name and model number and I can tell you how to check it.
