Question about General Electric WHDSR209DWW Top Load Washer

1 Answer

My whdsr209d washer at first got stuck on the agitate cycle and when I tried to manually advance it, I only heard steady clicking noises from the selector switch. But whenever I got back to the agitate cycle, it would agitate. Also it would not turn off. I noticed there was a problem when I realized the washer had been running for about 2 hrs. I reset the washer and now it does the same thing only it fills up and spins, slowly (probably because water is still in it). It won't drain or agitate now. But, it does turn off when it reaches that point. Is it a bad switch? Can anyone help?

    Thanks to you I fixed my washer too.I wasn't even thinking of the pump, I thought something in the timer.Finally tore the bottom off of the washer, opened up the pump, found a scoth pad jammed into it.

    BTW If a timer goes on your washer, other washing machines of different brands might have a similar one.DO NOT USE IT!!!

My hotpoint washer wont agitate spin or drain. it makes a clunking noise when you try to change the cycles manually


The draining problem could be something stuck in the pump. A easy fix just take it apart and get whatever is in it out of there. The agitator sits atop an agitator drive block. The spline on these tends to strip out. Yank off the agitator (it just snaps on) and replace the drive block.

Kenmore 90 series doesn't spin out all the water


Hi!

If 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.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Whirlpool WTW5800SW doesn't always agitate


Sounds like you may a bad lid switch. Do you hear any clicking noise when the lid gets shut. The clicking noise is the lid switch activating.

Washplate problem Kenmore Elite Calypso washer


Hello genny2626
Welcome,

You said,your 6 year old Kenmore elite top loader's wash plate doesn't seem to go through its proper motions. When the lid is closed and the washer has filled and the agitating cycle begins, you can hear a vibrating noise as if the plate is trying to move on the gentle cycle, but when the lid is opened, nothing has moved at all. The drain and spin work fine, and the machine goes through an entire cycle without error messages, but the clothes aren't clean. You said, you have heard a lot of horror stories of how expensive these washers are to repair, so would like an idea of what's wrong beforehand.

Here are a list of common vibration noises


Noisy, vibrating, off-balance

 Is the washer level? Does the washer rock when pushed
against the corners?
The washer must be level. The front and rear feet must be in
firm contact with the floor. Check that the locknuts are
tightened. See “Level the Washer.”
 Is the floor flexing, sagging or not level?
Flooring that flexes or is uneven can contribute to noise and
vibration of the washer. A ³⁄₄" (1.9 cm) piece of plywood under
the washer will reduce the sounds. See “Location
Requirements.”
 Is the load balanced?
Evenly distribute the load in the washer basket and make
sure the height of the load does not exceed the top row of
basket holes. See “Starting Your Washer.”
 Do you hear clicking or other noises when the cycle
changes from washing to draining or spinning?
When the drive system shifts or the washer basket settles
between cycles you may hear noises that are different from
your previous washer. These are normal washer noises.
 Is the washer gurgling or humming?

Is the washer level? The wash load
should be balanced and not overloaded. The washer must be
level. The front feet should be properly installed and the nuts
tightened. Reset the rear leveling legs (if needed). See the
Installation Instructions.
Did you completely remove the yellow shipping strap with
cotter pins? See the Installation Instructions.
• Are the gears engaging after the drain and before spin, or
is the upper part of agitator clicking during wash? These
are normal washer noises.

Let me know if any of these are the solution!

If your washer fills but the timer cycle doesn't advance-replace the timer. If your washer fills the time cycle advance, and still not agitating your agitator is at fault.

Washer make a clicking noise


Zoobs, you could have something stuck under the agitator. The agitator will pull straight off. Grip it on each side and pull up hard, but don't hit yourself in the face. If that don't work, try slipping a belt under it and pull. Check for something caught under it. Another possibility could be the nylon suspension rod socket supports in the back. They will make a noise during agitation if they are dry. Put a little 3 in 1 oil to quite them down. Take the front panel off and check the pulley and belt, see if anything is out of whack. I also often find the motor support hitting the bottom panel during agitation making noise. Take the front panel off and observe during agitation. See if the support is striking the bottom. If so, just bend the bottom panel down. Catriver..post back.
