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 odd...is 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

    yes..it's either clogged(likely) or it's constricted further into the system(more problematic)..you handy enough to tackle this?

    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

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 calls..no 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.

Washer temp setting changes by itself


I also have a Whirlpool washer/dryer for my condo, although I don't know the model number of mine. I had the same problem -- after it was precisely a year old, suddenly one day the hot and cold started coming out reversed. I was able to fix mine by more or less temporarily fiddling with the water pressure. What I did was one time, when the rinse cycle was running and the washer was filling up with hot water (grrrr...), I completely shut off the valve supplying hot water. So at that point the water stopped filling into the washer, and then I started tinkering with the cold water, twisting the valve off and on a few times. Then BINGO, suddenly the cold water "kicked in" and for the remainder of the rinse cycle, it filled the washer with cold water. I then turned the hot water valve back on, and since then it has been running correctly.

I was told the bearing is shot on the Whirlpool Duet Washer and it is not worth repairing, the machine is only 6 year old, any advice?


a 6 year old washer should not be scrapped unless it is made in china, replacing a 5$ bearing is worth fixing. even if you need to buy a drum unit.

Older whirlpool duet washer has error F11


F11 is a serial communication error between the central control unit and the motor control unit.
Unplug the machine and open the panels.
Unplug and re-plug all wire connectors from the ccu to the mcu.
Inspect all wires and harnesses for a bad wire.
Could be bad components; ccu or mcu or motor

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.
