Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

1 Answer

Just purchased a Whirlpool Cabrio top load HE washer. It filled with water then would not drain. Now it is not working at all. It is plugged in, water lines are good, etc. The display panel works. I let it time down to 1 min. and would not go any further. Have not been able to wash a complete load of clothes.

You need to chech inside the machine if water is still inside the tub.(ie.is it draining?). If not, there is the problem. All the programs are sequential and if one part malfunctions, it wont proceed to the next part of the cycle. So, after pulling the plug out of the socket, follow the drain pipe to the drain pump motor. You need to remove back plate first. then check the filter for fluff or if it is clear, you need to remove the pump off the washing machine body then unscrew the plastic pump section to gain access to the impellar that very possibly has something lodged in it. Once removed, reassemble then retry. Should be ok.

What is the LF Code my washer puts out


Hi Sherry,

The code definition for LF is a LONG Fill (F30). What does that mean is the next question? Here goes.

a. The fill hose may have a pinch or fold between the connections on the pressure in .
b. Are the hose screens plugged at the connections.
c. Is the water siphoning out of the drain hose ?
d. Is the water pressure at peak, check valve, filters before washer.

Now if your savvy hungry. Here is a learning curve link

Whirlpool W10240509A did not spin out all water. when i try to restart iti


mine just started doing this on the wash cycle then we have to turn it to drain and spin. Last night it filled with water and refused to do anything else so it said it was done, open the lid and still full of soap and water. Turn it to drain and press the start button and it does nothing, no lights come on. We bought it in 2012, before the washer we had was purchased in 2000, and we are still using the dryer from 2000.

Washer is filled with water and will not drain


if the motor is running your drain is probably plugged where it enters the pump if the motor does not run or make a humming noise the lid switch may not be working or the pin that presses it may be broken some times it is worn and by gently pressing it a little farther with a small pen will cause it to work long enough to drain the machine till you replace it.

Whirlpool Cabrio washer is leaking water


The problem happens when your installer throws away the drain hose u-bend, and stuffs the hose as far as it will go down the drain pipe. When this happens the end of the hose can get pushed under water, which causes the washer to siphon out the wash water when it fills. This results in an LF "Long Fill" error.
The solution is to get your installer to come back and install the washer properly.

LF means long fill, so if your hoses arnt blocked and you are getting good flow, try looking at your drain pipe, it should only go about 6 inches into the actual drain and zip tie it there. any further it could syphon the water out of your machine.
