RE: Putting whirlpool washer back together

I took my old Whirlpool washer apart to fix a drain hose that had come unclamped. My big problem now is trying to get it back together like it was before. (It is 21 years old). I followed directions on a web site with pictures. We can't seem to get the outside case to lock down. I can see there is a slot in the outside case way in the back that is supposed to fit over a little rise in the bottom of the rail of the inside washing machine itself, but as soon as we get one side locked in, the other one springs off. Same with the spring clips. I get one clip in and the other springs off. I think something must not be lined up quite right--it can't be this hard if one man can repair it and get it back together. (it has been rebuilt before) and got it back together. I would appreciate any suggestions. how do I reasemble the cabinet after the repair is complete. It won't line up on both sides of the frame on the bottom of the machine.

Also make sure that the wiring is back where it belongs or the pressure switch hose will kink not allowing you to put each clip in.

I would agree with you, it sounds like it isn't going back together correctly. When I put the cabinets back on them, I first make sure all 4 of the spades sticking up from the base are straight and not bent over. Next I grasp the hole the lid covers towards the front and lift and pull it towards me so the bottom of the cabinet is closer to me than the top. Next, I use my foot to push the bottom of the cabinet under the bar that goes across the base of the machine. Then I tilt the top of the washer back towards the machine. I wiggle the sides, until the cabinet seats into the spades coming from the base. After it seats properly, the clips should be lined up properly to be installed.

Is this by chance a Whirlpool or Kenmore washer? If so, a frequent problem is the lid switch. It can either have a loose lid which allows the plunger that activates the switch, miss the switch when you close the lid, or you might have a bad switch. One of the things that I have done for several customers is to repair the switch with a plastic zip tie. What happens occasionally is that the switch will split along the seam where it is glued together and when the lid closes, the plunger pushes the two halves of the switch apart and does not make contact. Putting a zip tie around that switch will eliminate that problem and possibly fix your problem. The washer may think that your lid is still up and that could be why it does not complete the cycle. Hope this helps!

Washer agitates but will not spin drain spin or fill

Well I have a Roper Top Load Washer, bought it in 1998 ,no problems til back 6 years ago we had someone come fix it. My problem was the same wouldn't drain or spin. The problem was it was clogged, in the front when you lift off the washer casing theres a white piece connected to to tubes that drain. well there was my daughters pair of underwear in there and a couple small socks.

Until earlier tonight we had same problem so we took it apart ourselves and found my boyfriends sock in there took it out and put it back together and works great again. So far so good.

Our Whirlpool washer won't drain

this machine has the pump directly atached to the pump assy, so if the motor is runnning your pump will drain water. more likely is that when you put the unit back together perhaps you didnt plug the lid switch assembly bak in. if there is no lid switch detected the unit will not drain or spin and when it gets to that mode it will simply stall out. no noise or anything. will fill, agitate but not spin and/or drain/ check the lid switch!

FL ERROR CODE - Machine is about 5-6 yrs. old.

I just had this issue two days ago. You have to take the back off the machine. If you have water then drain manually. I did this by taking the drain hose, pulling through the housing, unclipping the hose from the inside of the machine. This will get the hose to ground level, and using a bucket dip the hose down to fill, and up to drain into a bucket. This was time consuming, but it did almost fully drain. I then tipped the washer on its front, and took the bottom cover off. You will see two hoses, going to the pump motor. Remove the hoses, and you will have access to the pump impeller. I removed the entire pump and motor to clean it out. If you do this be careful. I had to find the wiring diagram to reconnect the wires. After pulling out a draw string from a swimming suit, and putting the machine back together it all worked. The repair sheet for this machine is taped to the front panel of the machine. This has all error codes, diagnostic modes, and anything else you will need to know to fix this machine. To get to the sheet, pry off the whirlpool emblem with a flat head screw driver. Remove the screw and lift up the top cover just enough to get the sheet. The sheet is in a plastic bag attached to front panel on your left as you are looking at the machine. Good Luck with the repair. Also check the actual drain hose for a clog. I found a piece of a sock in mine.

RE: Putting whirlpool washer back together

ok I know this is a problem heel i had trouble doing y first few but i learned a trick 1. make sure your front feet are off the ground at least 1/2 inch if they are rusted or broken place a screwdriver under the black rails. ok 2. wirh the cab. in front of you open the lid andhold it under that lip tilt it forward and then slide it toward the unit look down the lid hole you want the front edge to line up first as you slide it down there are two flat pins sticking up on both sides about 7" back fron the front corners these must fit into the cabniet you then drop it down slowly put the left clip on first then place you hand down the back right side pull it forward and install your other clip one note the fill dispenser will need to get under the cabniet before it will seat properly. connect your lid sw and close the console. let me know if this works and please rate this help
Thanks Gary
