Question about Whirlpool AWM5145/2 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Put on a program, dial moves only a little bit, no water going in, nothing happening. If I switch it to drain it sounds like it is draining.

I know its not the belt, because I swithched it off and left the machine and then tried it againl. It worked for a little while and the drum turned. It seems to be making a peculiar ticking sound around the filter area. any help please.

Check to see if the motor is faulty,remove the back panel and belt and turn the motor pulley by hand there were faulty commutators in some of these motors.(macking a clicking sound) if so you will need a new motor.

Hi, I have a dishwasher model sgs5022gb/07 that won't fill with water. Also the dial doesn't move round as the program progresses. This has happened before but it corrected itself. It's like...


The flood switch is tripped. This is located under the unit. Unplug or flip the breaker to the dishwasher, take off the black kick plate under the door, 2 screws, and you will see the white plastic "pan". The flood switch is located where you can't really see it but it is on the left hand side wall and is made of styrofoam. The best thing to do is to put some rags in the pan, this is not easy because there is little room to put them, and soak-up the water that has filled the pan. Eventually you will get enough water out that the float will deactivate the switch. What you hear "running" when you turn it on is actually the drain pump, it get activated when the flood switch is tripped.

Doesn't drain after "normal cycle" is run


It does sound like you have a switch problem or like the knob is simply getting stuck. Try taking it off and cleaning it if possible. Most common hardware problems with draining you have water at the bottom and it will not drain no matter what untill you clean the drain hose or a valve. Good news is that it doesn't sound like an expensive fix. Good luck.

Need to drain the tub before moving


It should all be drained out of there except a little in the hose. The sloshing sound you hear in there is not old water or stored up water. It is a liquid in a balancing ring that is sealed shut but it sounds like the water is in the tub. The best way to get all the water out is to take a wet vac and **** out the water from the drain hose. Just put you hand around the 2 hoses to kind of seal it and lay it on the floor. Nothing more is really needed to move it. Just don't be too wild moving it around lol. Front load machines are usually very heavy becuase they have cement or heavy pieces to keep the basket from moving around too much in a high speed spin. Good luck

Will not drain


If the drain lines are clear, test the drain pump, and see that drain pump is not clogged by removing it and cleaning.

If the drain pump is fine, then it is probably a defective control timer.

The filter area permanantly holds water, this is correct,suggest that you have a faulty inlet valve. Regards Engineer

Ariston LBE12X will not fill


depends which program you started with if you started with drain or spin then the humming noise you heard is the pump energised but jammed. remove the filter again and check nothing stuck in the pump impellor - bits of bra wire are the favourites if you started with a wash or rinse program, the humming noise is the inlet valve energised but no water coming thro. check water is turned on and hoses not kinked
