Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

Heavy duty Series 8 Commercial Top loading washing machine

Intermiitent problem whereby machine will sometimes not spin. This is irrespective of the size of load. I have years of technical experience and am an electrician. With a PA34 4XA postcode you will see why getting one of your engineers in maybe a problem. Is there any particular fault that can cause such an intermittent fault? It only occurs about one in 10 washes.
All wiring terminals have been checked and visual inspection of wiring loom.

    You're spot on. The machine sits on an unstable floor in a shed so the problem will be compounded. Many thanks from the North West coast of Scotland

The connection to focus on are your un balanced sensors.If you can ,replace them,make extra sure your harness contacts are all touching.My belief is the design of this machine is filled with so many mistakes.Its to bad that we are gambling every time we make a purchase ,what ever happened to quality control.

I have a frigidaire washing machine and it spins out just a small amout of water during the cycle, not a lot , have checked the pump and it works, just wondering if it could possibly be the lid lock


It would not agitate if it were the lid lock, just as agitation should stop when you open the lid during cycles. More likely it's something blocking the drain hose. Here is a link to an excellent online repair manual. Click on the picture of the wash machine, then go to chapter 2. Then have a look at Section 2-3.

Spin cycle does not drain water. The washer just stops when it gets to the spin cycle. The washer is a 70 series heavy duty.

How remove wash machine top


On these machines there are no screws holding the top down, get under it and pop it up using a tool that won't scratch the finish.
First I would try removing the front panel to see if it could be done through the front. Its only held by two screws in the bottom.
Good Luck
