Question about Whirlpool 3.2 cu. ft. Plus Washer

Open Question

Whirlpool Washer LSQ8243HQ0 Water keeps running after the proper level is reached. Overfills until I manually advance the timer. Timer works for spin cycle only. I have just ordered,but not installed an inlet water valve, for another problem I have with no cold water. I switched the hot and cold water hoses for a quick fix until the new water valve is replaced. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You Tim W.

SOURCE: My Whirlpool washer won't go into the rinse cycle.

Hi, When the water is suppose to be filling, Can you hear the inlet valve humming? You might need to remove the inlet vavle and check voltage to it. When the water is to be filling, you should get 120V to the valve. Please let me know if this helps or if I can assist you further.

SOURCE: Our washer over fills and must be manually

Most likely a hole in the hose going to the water level switch, and possibly at the washtub connection. If you are not getting the proper air pressure from the water level rising and compressing the air in the hose, the switch will not send the proper signal to the washer to switch from fill to agitate.

Also it is possible however not likely that you replaced a bad water level switch with a bad replacement switch.

If the timer and lid switches are funtional and the machine is filling and shutting off correctly that only leaves the motor. Have the motor tested or replace it. Even though the timer is running it is possible that it is still at fault. If you have access to another timer try switching them to make sure it isn't the timer. This does sound like a faulty motor and I would start with that assumption.

Under the agitator you have what is called (agitating dogs). The agitator will have to be removed. The top should spin off, you will be able to look down into the agitator and see a bolt. Remove this bolt and the agitator can be pulled out. The agitators are small pieces of plastic with small teeth. These teeth get worn out over time or if the washer is overloaded. When the agitator free spins one way the teeth grab a (gear) on agitator and this is how you get the washing action (agitating). These dogs are easy to replace and cost about $5. If you need more info check out *how to replace agitating dogs)

Calypso will not advance past wash cycle. I have a Calypso GVW9959K washer that displays no error codes and will run all functions in test mode. Problem is - it will run forever in the wash mode (clock...

If the machine is filling and washing but not advancing then the timer mechanism is not fuctioning. There is no codes so all other parts must be working, likke the pressure switch. You might test the door or lid switch this can sometimes hang these up. to test simply jump across the switch with a jumper wire. Basically
  • If the washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer does not advance, the timer probably needs to be replaced
  • If the timer does not advance while the washer is in a spin cycle, the timer probably needs to be replaced
  • I am supplying the service manual for this machine. Please be careful when attempting any repair and always make sure the machine is unplugged before starting any repair. This manual include service guides for testing components as well if your capable of these tests. The link will lead you to the manual. These manuals are not easy to come by due to the fact they are meant for service personell who make a living on these so it is inclusive and should help you in you issue.

    Wont advance to rinse

    you may want to inspect further the unit such as if there is still water remaining after the wash. You may have a drain pump that is not working properly or the water level sensor is not working correctly. The water level sensor normally appear as a float device. In some models they show up as a tube that goes out to the control unit.

    Dishwasher stalls

    If the cycle doesn't complete, check these:

    Water-heating cycle
    Water-heating cycle Many dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What happens next, depends, as follows:

    • On some units, the pause is timed and the unit continues after the allotted time.

    • On others, the cycle can't continue until the water reaches the higher temperature. If you have this type of dishwasher and the water isn't being heated (say, because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. When you repair the heating-system problem, the "cycle problem" is fixed too.

    Timer Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it.

    Washing machine overfills with water at start up after two years in use.

    If the washing machine operates and cycles correctly, and only problem is overfills, then you have a bad water level switch or a bad membrane sensor (water level sensor).

    If instead the machine get stuck on filling, and does not stop even if you advance timer, then the inlet valve is stuck on open, or the control board is faulty.

    If machine is only two years old, call manufacturer and complain, even id limited warranty is one year, they may cover the part cost the same if they decide this was a factory defect (if it is inlet valve) coming up after two years.

    Whirlpool gas dryer is not hot .burner ignights but it is not hot enough

    If your dryer seems to run forever, it could be because of a clogged vent or internal ductwork. Your dryer may have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry. It does this with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing system.

    Normally, this is what happens during an automatic cycle:

    • The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a pre-set temperature--say 135 degrees.

    • When the dryer reaches the pre-set temperature, the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. (If there's a moisture sensor, the timer advances only if the moisture content of the clothing is low enough.)

    • The timer advances until the interior cools, then the thermostat tells the timer to stop advancing, and tells the dryer to start heating again.

    This cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But…if the vent is clogged, the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix the problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork.

    if this helps please give me a fix ya vote

    Whirlpool AWO3761 stuck mid-cycle

    The cycle doesn't advanceWhen 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.
