Question about Westinghouse WWS833ES Super Capacity Top Loading Washer w/ Precision Wash System

1 Answer

Hi there, My Westinghouse washing machine LT 809S is going out on over balance while in Eco rinse. When it fills up with water and starts going into full speed on spin the tub moves out of balance (quite badly) and stops. It does it now and again in deep rinse but not as often as eco rinse. Machine is level, on the ground and I checked the white plastic caps that hold the suspension rods and found one broken LHS front. I have ordered another one but could it be the springs on the suspension rods are worn out or replacing the plastic cap work? Regards Glenn

Hi just read your posting.Now are the springs at the bottom end of the suspension rods inside a tube with a rubber insert at the end of the rod?If this is correct then it will be the same as most top suspended washing machines.We call these tubes dampeners and they stop the spring from reacting too fast therefore keeping the inner bowl steady.Now try this.Take the weight off each rod one by one so you expose the spring the put some bearing grease around the rubber insert.Be generous with the grease and do this to each rod.This will help the rods react properly to the shifting weight of the bowl and help seal any wearing of the rubber.Make sure to replace the plastic cap and please reply if you require further help.Good luck.

Hi my westinghouse 9.5 kg is not emptying the water out completely before spining therefore goes out of balance starts leaking water down in the right front corner also around the seam at the front

indicates that the tub support air dampeners are failed allowing the tub not to be level
normally there is a small amount of water in the tub as the spin starts to allow the cloths to move around for balance but when the air dampeners break there is no initial control for the balance so the tub gets all out of wack

My Samsung WF42H5000AW front loader will not change over from rinse to spin. I will continue to go back to rinse over and over for hours. Debris Filter clear and washer drains

Are you sure the load is balanced? or could be a problem with the machines ability to detect out of balance condition. This may involve the motor, (speed sensor) or electronics - or some machines have switches to detect out of balance conditions (weighted pendulums, etc)
Or may be a problem with water level control - for example, when the machine tries to fill to high level for rinsing, it starts to syphon empty, and all the water runs out - then it fills again, syphons and the cycle continues. Syphoning empty is common, and is caused when the end of the drain tube is LOWER than the water level in the machine - or in your case is at a critical point when the machine goes into rinse. Check the installation instructions re waste hose positioning. Check the waste hose hasn't become sealed air tight into the waste pipe with slime, etc too!

After working well for six months, my washer now expels water at random points during the wash and rinse cycles.

Check inside the fill hose for debris. There is a screen designed to block debris from getting inside the machine valve. If the screen builds up with debris the water slows down. Sounds like the water is filling too slow. Also the unit and/or the load may not be balanced causing it to stop and drain out. If it's okay then see what lights are blinking when these events occur and post here.

Sounds like your out of balance switch is corroded. It is located underneath your gold motor controller board.

Washing machine wil not fill - tries several times then stops and all lights except 4 go out

That would be the balance switch, should be located rear right under the main board. over time the switch becomes jamed in the on position and the machine always thinks its off balance. $4 to $10 for a new one.

My machine will fill & go thru a wash cycle but wont rinse or spin.

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.

Intuitive eco Iw811 Rinse 1 no water coming thru!

the 1st rinse light is normally set to "spray rinse", this means the machine will pump out the water, spin at medium speed then pulse cold water into the machine, this occurs for about 2 mins, then the machine will spin out, and advance for the final rinse which is a deep rinse.
