Question about Washing Machines

2 Answers

First I hate the fact that I wasn't paying attention to my own common sense. You can't wash without water. My main problem is the worrysom vibration this machine puts out. I have lowered the spin cycle to medium and it is still shaking so bad I'm afraid it might be doing structural damage to my brand new home. I have it on the second floor of my house and can't use grandfather clock because it has been knocked completely off balance to where it won't chime

Will not agitate or spin water out


The most common cause of this is a defective washer lid safety switch, if the washer doesn't sense the lid is closed nothing will happen other than it will fill with water, no wash cycle or spin. The lid switch is accessed by paying your washer top off with a putty knife, it is held down by friction spring clips, the lid switch is under the top, you will see it. You can obtain a replacement part from Sears Direct for about $15.00 US

Washer starts filling with water and tossing the clothes a bit, but then LE always comes on. Had this problem two years ago but I was overloading the washer. Not now! Any ideas?


If not a load issue, the next most common reason is a bad Hall sensor (located on the motor windings. easy replacement, and part is covered under the 5 or 7 year motor warranty) After those causes, next on the list, could be a stripped out spline on the motor rotor, the shaft of the drum drive spider could have broken loose, there could be a poor electrical connetion or bad wire between the Hall sensor and the main board, the main board could be bad, well, you get the idea. You may need a service call if it wasn't a load issue. A Hall sensor or a motor rotor can be a do it yourself repair, but anything beyond that would be best to contact an authorized service provider.

On my whirlpool 7 sense washing machine door light comes on 10 seconds after start and machine stops and wont start without power down


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
There is likely to be a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor. Both require a service engineer's attention I suggest. Sorry ;-0(
Good luck,

I am getting fe error after the water fills in.it doesnt start washing. What to do?


The FE error isn't common to all washers. In fact, I could only find information on it in relation to LG washers. I actually found this link here which explains it pretty well:

Do Frigidaire Front Load Washers require H&E detergents?


The answer is YES. Nearly all front loader washers built for consumers are rated as high efficiency because of the small amount of water and electricity they use. This small amount of water, coupled with a wash tub that does not agitate continously, followed by a high speed final spin of 1200 rpms or higher, all equate to an overall energy savings as compared to a conventional top loader. Regular detergent is formulated to be used in a wash tub with a 35 gallon capacity. So, if you use that same detergent in a wash tub that uses 5 to 7 gallons of water (such as yours), you are in effect putting about 5 times the concentration in the washer. This can lead to soap scum build up which causes odors, soap deposits that remain in your clothing and can cause skin irritation, "SUDS" errors that stop the wash program due to too much suds in the wash tub, and premature wear on the drain pump motor and seals. In fact, most front loaders will have a disclaimer added in the owner';s manual that explains this. Most manufacturers will also void the warranty if it is discovered you are using improper detergent. Use HE detergent and pay attention to the label. Some of them are double (2X) and triple (3X) concentrated. I hope this helps you.

Hotpoint washing machine keeps tripping electric


First unplug your washer. Check the ground on the washer and make sure it isn't loose; this would be a good time to inspect the wiring harness for any problems. Next check the outlet (turn off the electric to that breaker first) make sure all the wires are tight and are making good contact; pay special attention to the neutral (white) wire. If that seems fine, and you are comfortable with going into you breaker panel, turn off that breaker and check the hot (the wire on the breaker) to make sure it isn't loose and then check the neutral wire. If either of these wires seem loose tighten them down....a loose wire will move when a load is put on it and cause the breaker to trip. If all seems normal and washer is still tripping the breaker you might want to replace the breaker.....they can go bad. Good luck!
