Hello. I have a two years old Whirlpool washing

Hello. I have a two years old Whirlpool washing machine model AWE 6516. Yesterday, during squeezing, the machine made a noise that I never heard from her and, most important, some oil leaked beneath. Please, could you tell me what part of the machine do you think is broken and what should I do next. Thank you.

Unless you look underneath it will not be easy to confirm but please check the following.:
1. check if the motor has failed, the housing has come off.
2. checckif the belts have failed and brought it off the pulley.
3. check if the main spindle , pulley has come off from the main shaft.
4.check if theere is any foreign material struck in between the tub and outer cover. Checking with manually must confirm.
5. check aftert he above had been looked into to see if any other issues are visible or audible.
Hope these tips helps.

    if there is a gear box assembly near the spindle, the oil would have oozed out through the oil seal ring.
    You can replace this if the model contains the assembly.and the noise must be coming out of low oil in the gear box. open and check

Hello, I have WHIRLPOOL washing mashine model AWE 2214. Yesterday during squeezing, the masine stoped without noise, no indication buttons.I cheked everything, but the mashine no start. Please, help me!...


Go to www.washingmachine-manual.com/whirlpool-awe-2214.html for the handbook. Make a cup of coffee and have a read up. If that fails to help then its an engineer I'm afraid.
If you have a good diy friend have them check the belt drive if it has one? Be careful of electricity and water, they don't mix.

How do i replace the agitator in my old heavy duty whirlpool washing machone?


Hello.

The Whirlpool Ultimate Care II washing machine is atop-loading clothes washer. The washer has several cycles to choose from,including cycles for washing normal clothes, permanent press items, delicateand items marked "Hand Wash." To do its job, thewashing machine relies on an agitator, located in the center of the wash tub.The agitator rotates during the wash cycle, moving the clothes around the washtub so that they are cleaned equally. If the agitator is broken, it will notsufficiently agitate the clothes and must be replaced. ·1 Unplug the washing machine from the wall outlet or turn off the power supplyin your service panel. · 2 Open thewashing machine lid and remove any clothes remaining inside. · 3 Remove thefabric softener cup by squeezing the bottom lip of the cup and lifting itstraight off. · 4 Pry theagitator cap off of the top of the agitator with a flat-head screwdriver. · 5 Remove thebolt at the bottom of the agitator, using the socket wrench with extension, andthen remove the agitator from the washing machine. Tip the agitator to removethe bolt and washer. · 6 Install thenew agitator onto the drive shaft. · 7 Secure thenew agitator with the bolt that you originally removed. · 8 Press theagitator cap and fabric softener cup back into position on top of the newagitator. · 9 Restore powerto the washing machine to complete the repair.
Thanks.
