Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

2 Answers

HI, I am having a lot of trouble with my front loader which is only about 4 years old. It seems to become very unbalanced during the coloured wash setting (even with a small load) - and yet is perfectly fine if I then switch it across to the rinse and spin option. When in the wash cycle, the tumbling seems to get faster and faster, then cuts out. There has been a steady decline in this machine's performance over the past 2 weeks. It is not the first time I have had problems with it. I think the model is AWM 8121 ? Thank you, Lucy

There is a small spiral spring between the bowl and the cabinet, which help hold the bowl away from the out of balance switch.....OOB switch is at the back RHS of the machine, the spring is situated diagonally opposite (LHS Front). Lift lid, remoce 2 round plugs and loosen screws. Carefully lift hob and check the spring!.....I hope this helps...good luck...Nomess

Terrible smell during washing cycle!


I am not a repair professional. I am just a 78 year old
man who has been making his own repairs for about
50 years. Therefore the washer ID doesn't mean
much to me. It's been about 55 years since I had
experience with front load washers. However I can
suggest you go to www.applianceaid.com where
they have very good trouble shooting and repair
information on front loaders. I think you'll find what
you need there. Good luck with it.

During spin cycle it becomes unbalanced and it beeps and stops


It sounds like the sensing arm of the out of balance switch assembly is wrongly set. Get the guy back to do the job properly at no charge!

AWM 8163 Whirlpool washing machine


hi there,

Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping/or sound
during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and
redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.
