Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

My washing machine is a Whirlpool Model LA5800XS. It came with our condo unit. Its probably about 20 years old and gets only about three month's use each year. Mechanically it runs fine but the cold water does not run fully. It takes forever to fill with a cold water wash The hot water seems to be fine. I have changed the hose connectors.

    My washer is a top load

  • lcacsllc Mar 11, 2008

    Pressure is the same coming from th faucet. I checked both hot and cold when I changed the hoses.

  • lcacsllc Mar 11, 2008

    The water pressure was the same for both hot and cold when I changed the hoses. Could there be a problem with my inlet valve on the washer? Just a thought

  • lcacsllc Mar 11, 2008

    I am usually pretty good but if there is a clog lodged much beyond the inlet valve I think I'm going to have to call someone.

Hmmm..that's really the pressure from the cold water the same as the hot? you can test this first, then we can look at the cold /hot mix system

    well..only way to find out is to dig into it. if you're more comfortable with a professional, then I recommend you do it that way

Washing machine will not complete spin cycle, but does complete the agiatation cycles

Have you thought of replacing it with a new front loader?

When we try to wash a load of laundry after a couple minutes we get the code F1 show up and the wash cycle turns off. What is F1 and how can we fix it so the Whirlpool Cabrio washer will work again?

We have had the same problem for three years. We are only using this washer about 4 months a year. We has two service help. We had to baby sit the washer just like all the other posts, pressing pause about five or six times or more.

Well, I read the posts & that Whirlpool had fixed this problem, paying for parts & labor..we called..they sent a repairman. It took him 20 minutes, he asked if this was the code, said he carried at least three of these parts & now..the washer has been running fine. three loads so far.

So, call them, tell them the problem & it will be fixed at no expense to you..or should be.

F 70 code, and/or F 71 code

Washer --

The interface fried, probably lightning causing a power surge, a new one @ $152, + service call. Getting the part is a problem. It's 14 months old.

Our last washer was purchased second hand, we used it for over 20 years and it was still working when we replaced it.
