Question about Whirlpool WFW8500SR

2 Answers

Really noisy in spin mode

We purchased 3 months ago a washer Whirlpool WFW8500SR and since one month apprx. it's really noisy in spin mode. It make 3 time more noise than my old standard washer. Whirlpool send a technician to investigate the problem...He said it was ok as what are the Whirlpool standards. But off the record he told me that Whirlpool was aware of the problem ? Do you getting a lot of complains in regards to this washer. I don't think it's normal to pay that money and have somethings that make more noise than the conventional washer. Take for exemple a dishwashher ?

    I have the same problem. I have had two different technicnans from different companies to service my noise making during the spin cycle. One replaced the shocks(of course that did not fix the problem) and the other one said that is something we will have to live with.

I fixed the problem by myslef. solution is simple and do not waste money on the technician. You will need to open the drum and grease the Drum's Springs. you can also use wD40. Do this after 5-6 months.

No way, if I were you... I will return it and have it replaced, it is still under warranty, is it? if so, then it is your right to complain and tell the problem... it is their responsibility to make things right in order for you to get satisfied with the product. Well, return the problem to them, it should not be on costumers Give it back to them before it will be too late, late as in it's broken or something... and that doesn't cover the warranty, it will be blamed on you for using it improperly. Remember: "CUSTOMER IS ALWAYS RIGHT".

Happy New Year!!! ;)

H2low whirlpool top load washer turns on, fills with water for a second and stops...keeps making a sound on the sensing mode but does not get to wash mode to continue washing.

if the washer is only one month old contact whirlpool and they will give you a service company in your area to contact and it the repair will be free of charge as long as the problem is with the washer and not something that you are doing wrong or something wrong with the way that it is installed, the unit is under mfg. warrnty for one year from date of purchase.
things to check before calling would be, water connections correct? hot to hot cold to cold. are both the hot and cold water turned on?
kinked lines?
i would call a whirlpool certified repair company, they will send a guy out and if its broken they will fix it for free.

If the machine has been overloaded you may have partially damaged the coupling between the motor and the gearbox.or you may have damaged the gearbox itself...The coupling is a simple job for a tech but the other problem can be more expensive. Fortunately changing a gearbox does not take a long time. Check with a tech....Good luck....Nomess

Cabrio washer

um cant really help other then to reccomned replacing the RPS sensor for a F51code. And as far as i beleive the part comes with a new sensor and attached wiring harness. a little more complicated then any other machine whirlpool has in the market so i probably would suggest you replacing the part yourself.. i wouldnt wanna chance breakin other parts while dismantling the assy.
