SOURCE: Whirlpool Top Loader LSB6000PQ0 fills up with water but that's it

you probably closed the lid to hard and broke the switch that tells the machine that it is closed. So the machine thinks the lid is open and for saftey reasons will not operate. I had the same problem. You can buy a new switch for about $10 or you can simply cuts the wires for the switch and wire them together. If you do this be warned that the machine will never know if the lid is open or closed. The machine will assume that the lid is always closed. But it will work also.

SOURCE: No agitation or spin and motor seems to make a loud "ticking"

This is usually caused by the motor coupler. This is very inexpensive and easy to replace. To watch a free video on how to check and replace this part go to www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html this will walk you thru this. It may be a different model but the troubleshooting and replacement will be the same. You can also enter your model # for your specific model to get diagrams and illustrations.

My whirlpool ultimate careII quiet wash washer stopped working in mid cycle. It won't agitate, drain, spin, fill with water, nothing. The washer makes a humming sound and an electrical burning smell.


If your smelling electrical burn.. It's most likely to be the motor is bad.. Or just stuck, new washers made today are DC motors and contain a circuit board in the motor.. And are not serviceable.. Just replace them..

WHIRLPOOL TOP LOAD WASHER MAKING GRINDING NOISE FOR AGITATION


When you put the motor in did you replace the coupler between the motor and transmission? When fixing the agitator you need to get the agitator repair kit, It has seals, dogs,thrust plate, cam bearing and seals. The upper agitator is supposed to move only in one direction to get the clothes to move down towards the agitator. Do not overload machine. I have one of these and after 12 years I finally had to install this upper repair kit because the upper agitator quit moving. You may have an agitate cam that is going bad inside the transmission

Whirlpool gold UIltimate care heavy duty super capacity washer


Well you can check the capacitor with a meter for farads, but it sounds like you have a clutch and/ or gearcase failure causing the motor to overheat. The second thing to do is unplug the washer and check the timer. I would right after the agitation to inspect for heat and burnt connections.

Whirlpool dishwasher


It sounds as if your motor is locking up. Check under the front lower panel, snd see if there is water leaking into the motor, the motor simply seizes, and needs aspot of grease. You may also need to reprime the washer. To prime, Slowly advance the timer at start-up, After a few clicks, you will here the water valve open and start to fill the tub, then let the washer do it's thing.

Whirlpool noise


Ok can you take the front panel of the washer off easily?

If you can look for the motor pump assembly. Start the washer with no load, turn the water level down to the small and fill with water when it goes into agitation does it make the noise? if not turn timer to spin and see if motor makes the noise.

One other thought, maybe the smell is coming from the dryer?

Let me know. I wont be on line again until Friday Sorry
