Generic problem for all Whirlpool Washing Machines

Dear IFIall,

Thanks for your esteemed suggestion, but please guide me I am unable to open the agitator of my washer whirlpool 5132. If I try to open the bolt after removing the softener cover the agitator starts moving in the direction of opening the bolt. Do I have to hold the agitator simultaneously, or some other way of opening the agitator. Does it open clockwise or Anticlockwise. Please guide.

My old front load whirlpool isn't draining. Someone suggested opening a plug on the bottom left of the machine front that may have gotten clogged but we were unable to open it. any suggestions?


the solution giving to you i also a way of draining the water from the washer ,

But i will like to draw back your attention back to the drain pipe inside the drum of the washer..... what you need to do to fix up (solve)the problem of the drainage from here is that you have to bale out the waste water in the drum of the washer to see the cloth or dirty that have form up to block the pipe of the water out flow, remove any form of dirty around the pipe that have stop the water flowing as is expected to, with this the problem of blockage is solve.

please note this important information PUT OFF ALL FORMS OF POWER SUPPLY CONNECTED TO THE WASHER.

Thank you and thanks for using fixya.
