Something has happened within the unit that the computer has determined requires immediate attention. Best bet is to have it serviced. There's usually not much you can do without a method of determining the error code. The unit might have to be reset by the repair shop, and they'll determine the problem there.

Lights flashing, F24 flashing washer has stoped


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. F24 is a water temperature sensor error which is caused when the water temp. sensor value is out of range during the water heating step of the wash cycle. To resolve this issue you’ll have to check the water temperature sensor and its connections. If everything seems to be working fine then you’ll have to replace the water temp.sensor. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Washer stopes after filling with water and does nothing


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Newer model Whirlpool / Kenmore washers use a Lid Switch as a safety device. Unless the switch senses that the lid on the washer is closed, the washer will neither agitate nor spin.

Older models only used the switch during the spin cycle.

Try to bypass the Lid Switch by removing the Console and jumping the two outermost pins on the switch.

This is a Whirlpool PDF on how these washers operate. It has a diagram on jumping the switch as well as a detailed section on how the transmission works.

It also has a troubleshooting guide.

To bypass the switch, you only have to disconnect the power to the washer, tilt the console back, unplug the switch and using an short piece of insulated wire, jump the two outermost contacts on the connector coming from the console and plug the washer back in.

Following is a description of how to gain access to the console and how to remove the cabinet if necessary.

With the jumper in place, try to re-start the washer.

If it works, the Lid Switch is a relatively inexpensive part and only requires you to access the console and remove the cabinet.

Whirlpool washer stoped after the agitate cycle


If it fills with water, agitates then stops still full of water (even if you manually advance the timer), you have a bad lid switch. This is an inexpensive repair, or even a do it yourself project.

Grinding noise when washer starts some spin cycles, washer stoped and game my wife a f-33 reading. whirlpool told me to unplug(reset) the washer for 30 mins. i did this and the washer still has the...


hi there,

the grinding noise may be coming from either the pump or you have something caught between the drums.

the f-33 error is the pump drive system error. it indicates that you have lost communication between the CCU board and the pump. the CCU board is the main control board that you see in the front of your washer.

i would recommend that you call a technician to check it out, as you will have to do some checks that require technical knowledge.
