Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

1 Answer

Whirlpool AWN 321 washer continues to drain water out of drum throughout the whole wash and rinse cycles. The consequence of this is the machine continually draws in hot and cold water to achieve the programed water levels within the drum. Obviously wash is ineffective as the detergent solution within the drum is continuously diluted. Thanks for any anticipated help. Regards, Mike Wood

This sounds like a siphon condition. Remove the drain hose (the thicker black hose from the back of the machine) out of the wall. Now re-insert it back in only 6" going into the drain. When they go in too far, the drain in your house that prevents odors from coming back out of your drain causes a siphon that pulls the water back out when the washer is filling. Make sure to tie the drain hose down with a tie so it does not pop back out when the washer is draining/ spinning.

Whirlpool washer model wslp1100d after the rinse


Hi Derek.

There are several different problems that may result in basket wobbling and machine shaking heavily during the spin cycle. Sometimes the shaking can result in spin cycle not ending, like in your case.

To find out what the problem is the washer must be taken apart and the tub removed.

A common situation is given by a defective drive hub.

At the end of this comment there is a movie showing how to reach and replace the drive hub in whirlpool top load washers. In this washer you will find a more complicate device instead of the hub shown in the movie. There is a pulsator, the balancer and other parts that must be inspected. The two assemblies are indicated respectively as part 52 and 56 in diagram nr.1 below. Here the part list: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5239648&diagram_id=26470626#d26470626

If you find a foreign object such as a cloth below the tub, then that can be cause for the shaking and wobbling.

If the parts below the tub are OK, then one of the suspensions may be broken. Suspension (damper) is indicated as part 36 in diagram 2. Here parts: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5239648&diagram_id=26470625#d26470625

My whirlpool washer periodically gets stuck on rinse.. the water continues to run but its only about half full so it must be draining. My water bill was over $100 last month, please help.


check the lid switch, if it isn't working right the machine will not enter the spin cycle, also the timer may be going bad, it could stay stuck in between the rinse fill and rinse cycle

Washer sticks on wash cycle; runs continuosly on spin cycle


That sounds like you have one of them fancy water saving outfits with a diverter valve that dumps the pump water continuosly over the clothes. Weirdest washer I ever saw. Could be the solenoid that opens the drain pump has failed. Don't know too much about em but I do have the service manual. Post your model number for a more precise answer.

Washing machine wont hold water on any setting


raise the main drain hose to the top of the back control head. there may be a problem with the main hose being to low and the water is gravity siphoning out of the washer.make sure the washer is off when you lift the hose up but do not remove it from the wall,you should here water drain out once it has stopped draining restart you machine and it should fill to the proper level and quit then go into your wash cycle

Water fills drum (top loader) even when off


Your problem is a jammed water solenoid, If you take the top off the machine it is possible to remove and either strip it down to see if it is dirty or replace it. your washer hose usually connects directly to it.

High speed drum rinse ..drum not spinning during rinse cycle


Clean out coin collector thoroughly. Replace drain pump if necessary. Water will drain if you can place drain hose on floor and let water siphon out.

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
