Question about Whirlpool LHW0050PQ Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Not spinning at all

My whirlpool won't go through the spin so therefore never gets to 'done'. I've tried using just the spin cycle and it won't do that either. I did unplug and plug it back in and that didn't help either. The satus lights are on spin and flashing and the start button is flashing. the tub moves freely when you push it by hand. Tonight I'll have my husband remove the top and make sure everything looks ok.

    EXACTLY the same problem as 1serious1.

    I've checked the filter...it's clean.

    I've checked the drain hose...it's clean.

    I've checked the belt tension...it's good.

    Drain motor runs fine. Drum turns freely.

    Any advise would be appreciated!!

Your washer needs a new speed control board located in the bottom right corner of the machine it controls everything to do with the motor

My whirlpool cabrio washer has started shutting off half way through the wash cycle...won't drain and spin...could the motor be overheating or is there something else I can check?


Most likely the cycle timer needs to be replaced. it is basically a clockwork device that that has cogs attached to a spindle. if you check the schematics for your product you will find the part no. etc. any servicing of course needs to be done wit the power disconected

replace the brushes in the motor _around 20 quid and usually the first thing to start messing up when the brushes get short is the fast spin _UNPLUG IT FIRST. you might also like to clean up the com with a bit of wet and dry

Whirlpool cabrio wtw5600xw0 will not spin


I had the power button off so no lights were lit. I also tried it in teh done mode. None of the buttons put it into self test.

My issue with spinning is it will not complete the spin cycle and the lid lock light flashes leaving water in the tub. If I out the machine on drin and spin it will remove most of the water
I also tried the soil level temp keydance to check the console self test and it would not go into that mode either.

Why won't my whirlpool model #LSR8233JQ0 go through the rinse cycle or the spin cycle


i have no info on this model, but if its a front loader then you will be looking at your drain pump motor as at the start of the rinse and spin cycles it will need to drain if it cannot it will not even attempt to continue on, so take that little drain pump cover off and have a look inside the propeller it may just be jammed up, if not it may be blocked somewhere along the hose or just a faulty pump altogether, if its a top loader you will be looking for the same thing but if it isn't the pump it will be the lid switch that senses the lid has been shut as all whirlpool top loaders must be able to activate the lid switch or else it cant spin (simply a safety feature to prevent injury), get back to me if you have any questions

After wash cycle, tube will not drain water?


Probably a blocked empty pump filter. Spin won't kick in until all the water is evacuated. If there is a little left, the machine will do the slow turn cycle that it does just before spin starts but not start the spin cycle because of the water in the drum.

You need to locate the filter and clean it. That should fix your problem. Once this is done, remember to keep the filter clean every few months.

I have a Whirlpool WFC7500V Front Load Washer and after the load is done the clothes are still soaking wet, is there a step i am missing why are the clothes still really wet. Do i need to drain or is the...


What spin cycle are you using? Try a faster spin option. (The wrinkle release setting uses more water and a lower spin speed.)
Try putting fewer items in a load in the futute and make sure it isn't unbalanced. (One really heavy item could imbalance the load and shift the spin efficiency.) Redistribute the clothes and run a Drain/Spin cycle.
Make sure to use HE detergent (don't use more than the recommended amount of detergent).

The other issue to check is if the machine is draining properly. Check that the drain hose isn't clogged. Also check the voltage at the washer - low voltage will result in a slower spin cycle. To correct this, you probably will want to call an electrician.

I hope this helps.

Whirlpool washer won't rinse or spin w/o manually turning knob


It is most likely that you have a faulty water inlet valve. Some machines have a seperate valve for rinse to flush in a fabric softener I suspect that your detergent flushing valve is faulty.....Good luck Nomess
