Thanks for the reply. It is not the motor. The machine ismaking all the program with cold water but as soon as it start warming the electricity goes off. I suppect the heating element? What do you think? Is is difficult to change it myself?

It may be the motor if you unplug the motor then try again,if the power doesnt turn off then its the motor.also check for water leaks

My whirlpool cabrio7600 top load washer starts up filling with water an doesnt stop filling.


Hi.
If the water inlet is faulty the water flow will only stop if you turn the wall tap off...
If the fault is in the machine the inlet will stop when the machine or the electricity is turned off.
If the water flow stops when electricity is halted it indicates that the inlet is functioning properly. There are a number of things which can cause the inlet to not turn off, such as the water level sensor is faulty or blocked. It could even be that the motor controller is faulty.
Unless it is a simple inlet change I recommend that you let a technician look at your machine.
Good luck,
Nomess

Downy goes first than soap


I fill the washer with water first

Then open the lid put in the soap
3/4 cap full,then then 2/3 cap downy

(Both together-bleach as well- if a white load)

I add only to clear water after it fills

Then allow the water to mix the soap

Then add the cloths a few at a time

NEVER put the cloths in & add soap
on them with no water or use the silly
places on the top they say to add stuff

You only add soap etc to plain water &
no cloths & mix first,then cloths go in

Common Sense as to what is taking place

The part about the softener was just silly

It is in the water mixed with soap etc & all goes out
at one time

It is a one step deal

Water,Soap,Downy,then Cloths your done

Problem is too much soap. Wrong soap. Press and hold: SPIN SPEED & SOIL LEVEL buttons--then press POWER button.
Wait for door to lock.

Press the START button (6) times--this will fill the tub with hot water to the maximum setting when it stops filling.

Press the START button two more times--this will enable the tub to tumble.
After 3 hours--turn "off" the washer.
Turn the washer back "on".
Select the shortest wash cycle (usually "quick wash") and press "START". This will rinse out the tub.

Single mother of four wash machine not working only 2 yrs old.


Take off electricity wire, Open the filter from the front( maybee need to remove a rectangular cover.) turn the filter anti-clockwise. take out the hairneedle or coin. (the water will come out from the filter so make preparation with towels., see inside the filter if something is stucked around the small propellar. Turn the electricity back on. choose for example pumping program or centrifugeprogram. After that the machine should work.

This is a fill error, you need to make sure thee is adequate water pressure and that the inline filter in the inlet hose is not blocked.

Washer is leaking from the front when its filling


If machine is leaking only while filling then remove soap drawer and clean this out, also clean inside drawer housing, refit and test. If you still have this problem your water pressure may be to high. Just turn the tap where your hoses are connected so your pressure is reduced. If problem is still present then you will need to remove top from machine and check pipe under soap box.Then be very careful but while top is removed just fill machine and see if any leak is visable. MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT TOUCH ANY WIRES, AND NO CHILDREN ARE NEAR YOU.as many people forget that electricity has no fear of killing people.

Whirlpool Roper Gets to Rinse then water runs but will not fill


The contacts for the outlet pump have fused together in the programmer so that as soon as you apply power the pump motor starts running.

Remove the power first

Quick check is to take off the back panel locate the pump and remove one of the supply leads
put some insulating tape around the end of the lead you have taken off in case it shorts out then put the power back on and try the machine, it should then fill and start to agitate .

If that works then you need a new programmer .

Turn off the power , replace the lead and then put the machine back on to drain out the water

Eurotech washer Leaking water front detergent drawer


Hi,
I'm not familiar with your machine but usually there are nozzles above the soap drawer which squirt the water on to the detergent compartments at the appropriate times . If you can take out the soap tray have a look to see if the nozzle bit has come loose and is pointing towards you...also check that the outlets from the soap tray are not clogged with...soap.

Failing that, you could partially turn off the water supply to the machine so the pressure is reduced. Sure it will take longer to fill, but you won't get so wet.

Hope this helps. If this "fixes ya", I'd appreciate a rating for my reply, If not, please delay the rating and add a comment with any extra info you have and I will try to think of something else.



Thanks, D
