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.

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.

MACHINE WONT WORK, NO WATER GOING IN


Water flow is controlled (almost always) by an electrically controlled mixing valve generally part of the attachment points for your hoses.
Sometimes one can hear a slight 'hum' caused by the valve's coil if it is receiving control voltage.
These are simple devices not hard to replace and if one shops a little, not very costly either.
Check to see if you have a Johnstone Supply in your area. They sell to the trade but I have never been turned down as a private buyer.

It is also possible that screens at one or both ends of the hose are clogged with silt.
Check those first.

Will not drain or spin


Unless you jarred the machine it's the timer. You can check this by bypassing the lid switch and seeing if it will cycle.

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
