Question about Whirlpool AWM6120 Front Load Washer

Whirlpool flashes 5d

Washer was flasing 5d. (I was washing 2 bathroom rugs that are heavy with water.) I stopped it in an attempt to reset it. It did not work. So I jiggled the drain hose and then it flashed fl. Then I noticed the soap drawer was ajar so I pushed it in. Nothing. So I unplugged it and then everything lashed and blinked and the code F came up. I think I made it worse! How can I reset it and drain it. I am sure thatthis is all it needs.

Water will not spin out. Code says 5d

The troubleshooting page in the owner's manual says: 5d "Sd" Suds Detected - Did you use regular detergent? Regular or hand-washing detergents are not recommended for this washer. Use only High Efficiency (HE) detergent. Did you add too much detergent? Always measure detergent. Follow detergent manufacturer's directions. If excessive suds are detected, the washer will display this code while running a suds reduction correction routine at the end of the wash cycle.The susds reduction routine removes extra suds and asures proper rinsing of your garments. If te code remains and the wash cycle dial is flashing after the recovery routine has stopped, re-select your desired cycle using cold water. Press start. Do not add detergent.

How do you wash one rug? I can't get the machine

You dont say how big this rug is, but I am guessing its not big enough to spreadevenly around the machine. The machine senses an imbalance and willo not spin or failos to spin at a rate that would rekove the water. Try adding some balance to the drum with another object that will evenly spread the load to see if that helops to get rid of the sopping water.
BTW any pictures of you whipping the rug around in the backyard? That should make for Utube fame!

Washer keeps beeping Fl

Your pump is clogged , It is a very bad Idea to put rugs in that machine either to fibers or the backing on the rug gets stuck. I hope you know someone handy. take out as much water as you can from the top with a cup or something. You are going to have to go under the bottom of the machine remove the 3 screws on the bottom plate. the pump is on the right you have to disconnect the black and the yellow hose very slowly there is a lot of water that you can't see from the top . then take down the pump and clean it out . Good luck remember no rugs.

Calypso - water goes straight to drain hose-not drum

the hose may still be filled from last cycle. try to put machine in final spin mode where all water from previous wash will be spun out the drain hose. once a siphon is started it can only be stopped by introducing air into the drain hose.

Washer does not spin or agitate

you need to remove the cabinet to expose the washer. once you do that you need to remove the 2 clips that hold the pump to the motor. then remove the 2 1/4 inch screws that hold the 2 clips onto the motor. ( remove the wireing connector first) remove the motor and Im sure you will find that the coupling need to be replaced. There are 3 parts to the coupling. 1 rubber and 2 white plastic parts. replace the coupling and install everything in reverst. your washer should work fine after this.
