Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

My whirlpool washer stopped during the transition from wash to rince.

Water did not drain out of washer. Timer is ok. Motor hummed in wash range but agitated when turned on and off several times. Would not pump water out when manually selected to that position . Wife reported a leak at front edge of machine. Suspect foreign object in water pump, bad pump, or motor. Can you help.

    After removing pump from washer it appeared undamaged. Impeller blades looked good and no obstruction. Motor runs but is noisey in wash mode with out pump installed and only hums in pump mode.

Whirlpool cambrio wtw5550xwo issue


Under the face panel there will be a capacitor for the motor. This capacitor fails and then there is nothing as the motor needs it to start turning. Normally if it has failed there will be a "scab "of insulation oozing out and gone hard

The washer will fill up with water but it wont start washing or drain or spin you hear a humming noise then everything stops. Then in about 5 mins it will hum again then stop again


If the washer will not agitate, spin or drain it's a motor problem, capacitor or a broken motor coupler. It's either a loose wire connection on the start circuit or failed contact in the timer. When you say that the motor hums during spin, that would indicate that the motor has run voltage, but it has no start voltage. It needs both start and run voltage in order to get the motor started and running. The start voltage gets the motor started, and once started all it needs is run voltage to keep it running. The only difference between agitate and spin is that the polarity is reversed in order to start the motor in the opposite direction. The reversal of the polarity is controlled by timer contacts 7 and 14.

Most likely it's a timer or loose wire connection.

My washing machine fills up with water, but want start washing after it fills. I can turn the knob to rince, spin, and drain, and it works. What is my problem? Is the timer ok?


Yes, i do agree, the timer will be the problem. Everything runs through the door limit to start then through the pressure switch then to the timer. The fact that you cag get the motor to spin when forwarding the timer means the pressure switch must be ok.(im taking it that the water switches off when required water level is reached. Also, if water does not switch off, make sure the drain pipe is the same height as 3/4 the tub height

Whirlpool Washer will not progress to the rince cycle.


that is either a problem with the timer , or with the cold water hose at the back of the machine, see the following:



I quote from : The cycle doesn't advance

The cycle doesn't advanceWhen the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It'sthe timer, if your washing machine fills with water and beginsagitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spincycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • Itmay be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills withwater, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinsewater. See There's no cold water.

    Washer keeps stopping during any cycle


    the humming noise could be from two sources and it is worth while doing a few simple checks first the drain pump is jammed with a foreign object. check nothing caught in the impellor second water not available - check taps turned on. also turn water off, undo fill hoses, put in a bucket and turn water back on try on drain or spin programs to check water drainage as well
