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.

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.

What does the 'eco option' on the MW512NZ model actually mean?? Cheers


Eco is a water saver option, using less water on the rinse cycle. It saves 25% more water than the water saver option on the rinse cycle (if available, depending on model). Eco and water saver cannot be used with fabric softener. Eco and water saver are slower than the regular rinse cycle.

It wont complete cycle and empty the water just hums for a while and then turns its self off


The cycle doesn't advance When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem: It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

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.

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.
