Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Washing machine hi, i stay in india. my washing machine is whirpool (whitemagic). model no F65. some days back while washing clothes my machine started vibrating pretty badly in spin cycle. i stopped it.took it to be one-off incident. the next day the machine started vibrating badly again though not as bad as the previous day. the repairman diagnosed the problem to be of the "suspension rods" . the most probable cause given was unbalanced clothes loading. i do the loading myself and quite properly. so, i was amused by the explanation.anyway i went along with it. the rods were changed. the next day i faced a new problem. the agitator wasn't working properly. the entire cycle was mostly consumed by filling,soaking and draining of water. there was some weak agitating and then spinning for some time.the vibration while spinning is as usual but is accompanied now by a somewht metallic sound . is there a bigger picture here? if no wht do u think of the weak/non existing agitating and the mettalic sound. would like to know ur opinion before asking the repairman to come over. ty

    metallic sound due to loose connection of some stuff. agitator programmed for only so much "work" in tht program level. as for cause of sudden vibration it still remains unbalanced loading of clothes. this was the solution i got. happy the metallic sound gone. have to stop using that particular program level. as far loading is concerned keeping my fingers crossed each time i load the clothes. ty for your time and advice. regards

The model numbers are different in the U.S. so I am not sure if I can give you correct advise.
The only Whirlpool models I am aware of that use suspension rods are the Calypso and Cabrio. These are high effeciency topload washers. The symptoms you describe are fairly common in the Calypso after a few years use.
The springs inside the leveler break and cause little or no agitation. The viberation and spinning problem sounds like a worn drive tube. The excess wear in the shaft allows too much movement of the basket during spin which causes noise and out of balance conditions. This would be an expensive repair here and most people will usually replace the machine rather than repairing it.
I am going to be out all day, but will try to find some information on your model this evening and post back if I come up with better information.
Thanks, Mike

Noise at the *** end of the spin cycle

Hi pils,
As before I am not sure how your machine is built, but what you describe sounds like a problem with either the basket drive block or the brake system.
The basket is going to be mounted to the spin tube with some sort of aluminum adaptor and a nut, at least that's how most all our machines are made. Sometimes the drive block becomes unseated from the drive tube coming up from under the machine and will make a lot of noise when the brake applies at the end of the cycle. This is usually accompanied by the water not being spun out of the clothes as well as it should.
It may be the brake "jumping" when it applies to stop the basket.
What ever it is, it has something to do with the load being reversed when the spin stops. When the machine is spinning, the torque from the motor is transferred through the drive mechanism to turn the basket. When the motor shuts off, this torque is reversed as the momentum of the weight of the spinning load of clothes becomes the driving force and it is transferred back down through the machine until it stops.
Try turning the basket by hand in the direction of the spin and see if you can recreate the noise at at a slow enough speed to be able to pinpoint where it is coming from.
