    Hi Lumpy,

    I have been helped by another person at FixYa and yes the motor coupler was the problem. Thanks FixYa I will certainly use the service again.

    It sounds like you have a bad motor coupler. Can you get me a model and serial number so I can type you up a walk through to replace it. (to find it, lift the lid, look where the lid and top meet in the rear. There should be a plate with both mod# & ser# on there)

Washing machine is getting stuck on rinse cycle washer is only 8 mths old please advise


Good day,
If the machine is under one year old, all mechanical problems are covered for you by the manufacturer.
Contact your selling dealer first for service. If they don't perform warranty repair themselves they will advise you who to call. Roper is a product of the Whirlpool Corp.

Duet washer leaks during use; rinse cycle?


Check the water pump hose connections and the water pumps housing bolts themselves could have loosened from vibration. more likely the hose connections on the pump itself though. Hope this helps.

Our Whirlpool washer is about 8 years old, it will not go into the rinse or spin cycle, will only work in wash cycle. Could it be the lid switch? Or? Thanks


No if it was the lead switch, the washer would not have worked at all. I have a feeling it’s the timer or the control mechanism itself. Before you go out spend money run it by a local repair shop, if indeed it’s the control timer look for it online much cheaper.

Whrilpool modle #lsq9544kq0 washer works in


Humming could mean a stalled motor. These machines also have a coupling between motor and gearbox which can fail. However, the pump is attached to the motor, so if it's not pumping it probably means the motor isn't spinning. Check motor and/or gearbox.....Nomess

Water has started pouring out from under my washer


Hello, you've indicated this problem only arrises during the rinse cycle, is that correct ? The leak doesn't occur during the wash cycle initial fill level ? I want to distinguish the difference because there has been a repair tip issued by whirlpool for the duet and sport washer's. This may be applicable to your machine. If it is indeed only during the rinse, the problem is within the door assembly. Specifically the glass and it's "seat" to the frame. Let me know, I'll watch for your reply. macmarkus :)

Will fill but not wash or spin


Does the motor run?  Does the water get pumped out at the end of wash cycle or during the rinse cycle or when you turn the dial by hand to the end of a cycle?  If the water gets pumped out then the motor is OK but the clutch is not working.  If the motor is not running then that is the problem.  If the water fills and then nothing happens (the dial does not turn by itself) the timer is bad.  If the timer is bad but you turn it by hand the other actions (wash, rinse, etc. should work indicating no problems with motor and clutch).

Whirlpool Washer - Imperial Series Quiet Wash 2


your washers drain hose is too far down the drain pipe which is causing a siphoning action pull the washers drain hose out pipe some you should be able to hear water dropping into the pipe the reason it only happens in the rinse cycle is because the water from wash is being drained and before the water vacuum is broken the rinse water comes in causing it to keep draining

Whirlpool gold top load washer (7 months old) won't agitate or spin


It sounds like the motor drive coupler has broken. This means the motor is no longer turning the gearcase, but it is turning the pump. It will be repaired under warranty if it is only 7 months old. You should have a full one year warranty on the washer. If not, he can probably fix it, but it will need a new coupler. He can tilt the machine back and see the coupler between the motor and transmission from underneath. I can walk you through replacing it if you want, but I wouldn't recommend it if it is still under warranty. There could possibly be something more major wrong that has caused it to break and some of the factory servicers are real picky about customers working on a machine under warranty. If you need it running tonight, he may be in trouble.

Post back if you need further help or have more questions.

Thanks/mike
