Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

1 Answer

I bought a 19 gal. hot water heater in March of 2008. Model EIF20USO15V. Product #0800130. It worked for 3 or 4 months and then stopped producing hot water. I pushed the reset button once and it works for 2 days and then quit. I pushed the reset button over and over again. Still does not work. What do you suggest? I couldnt find anything that was close to a hot water heater.

My initial thought is the thermal protector reset has had it last reset. the question is why does it keep tripping? you may have other problems.

Unplug or turn the power off. make a wiring diagram of how the wires go where. tag them with masking tape if you have to.

Now remove the reset and take it to your local Hardware store. they should have a compariable replacement, if not maybe they can recommend a plumber who would have it.

Best of Luck!

I am having a problem with my Whirlpool AWO/D 43135 washing machine.It stops when starting any program and shows error code F23.What should I do?

The fault F23 could be linked to the water temperature not reaching the right temperature. If your model uses hot water inlet connection then check if your hot water unit is providing the correct inlet water temperature. Otherwise it is likely the temperature sensor or heater element maybe failing.
See description
If the temperature increase during the first 40 minutes is less than 86degF (30degC).
1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
2. Check connection to water heater.
3. Check resistance of heating element, if present on this model. (abnormal = infinity)
4. Check the water temperature sensor and connection to it.

Determining the Age of Your Whirlpool Appliance

This advice applies to all appliances manufactured by Whirlpool. Determining the manufactured date of most appliances is accomplished by looking at the SERIAL NUMBER. On Whirlpool appliances this is determined by the following method:

The 1st two numbers identify the WEEK produced, the 2nd digit identifies the YEAR.

Example: EK1201983 (March 2000)

0 - 1980/2010/2040
1 - 1981/2011/2041
2 - 1982/2012/2042
3 - 1983/2013/2043
4 - 1984/2014/2044
5 - 1985/2015/2045
6 - 1986/2016/2046
7 - 1987/2017/2047
8 - 1988/2018/2048
9 - 1989/2019/2049
X - 1990/2020/2050
A - 1991/2021/2051
B - 1992/2022/2052
C - 1993/2023/2053
D - 1994/2024/2054
E - 1995/2025/2055
F - 1996/2026/2056
G - 1997/2027/2057
H - 1998/2028/2058
J - 1999/2029/2059
K - 2000/2030/2060
L - 2001/2031/2061
M - 2002/2032/2062
P - 2003/2033/2063
R - 2004/2034/2064
S - 2005/2035/2065
T - 2006/2036/2066
U - 2007/2037/2067
W - 2008/2038/2068
Y - 2009/2039/2069

NOTE: WHIRLPOOL (Includes Kenmore, Estate, Roper, Frigidaire, and later model Maytags). If in doubt, look at the MODEL number. Whirlpool model numbers are often prefixed with the following numbers:

106, 110, 198, 562, 664, 665, 850

I purchased a Whirlpool gas water heater model ND40T62-403 from Lowes in July 2013. The pilot light has gone out on 3 occasions since Thanksgiving. It is out right now. I have everything unplugged and...

Go back to Lowe's with all receipts including the your purchase receipt, the plumber's bills and whatever records you have while speaking to the Whirlpool technician, and raise hell. What water heater is unsuited for your home?? Is Whirlpool crazy? Lowe's would not sell you an inappropriate water heater. You should have done this 3 months ago.

Whirlpool model WTW5310VQO

i've found problems with the temp. switch on this washer part number W10184148 and it's around 40 dollars,also on the rinse cycle the washer only uses cold water.what happens when you use just the hot?i had a lady that her water would start to fill and then the water would stop and the pipes in the house would start making a banging sound.if you order the part from repair clinic and if this isn't your problem which i think it is from how you discribe it you can send the part back and get your money back for up to a year.good luck with your washer and next time you buy something and it doesn't work right get right on it

My lg tromm front load washer smells

Try this, It's involved but it worked on my Kenmore HE4tDrain the machinePull the filter (have a sheet pan, wet vac and towels handy, there's a lot of water)Disconnect the drain boot from the pump and tubDisconnect the pump drain hose (waste)Disconnect the pump electricalWash everything (not pump motor) in a 25% bleach solutionReassemble.Put 1 gal boiling water, 1 gal hot water and 1/2 cup bleach in washer compartment. check for leaksWash entire compartment with the bleach water and spin the drum time to time for 15 minutesAdd TechnoFresh (which claims to loosen gunk) to the powdered soap dispenser, through a bunch of rag towels in and run the machine on the hottest cycle.This process works well until machine is stinky again (about 6 months depending on bleach usage)BTW "the leave door open trick" only helps the door gasket and does not address the constant reservoir of fermenting water in the bottom of the machine

Lots of mold around rubber gasket; unable to clean off; odor from mold; water in detergent trays; maybe some water leaking from washer; washer bought in 2008

Use a s.o.s pad to remove mold there will still be staining but it will gey the bulk of.Now to get rid of the smell ( this has been a mixture I have used for about ten yers works every time) put the washer on hot heavy wash start when done filling drain what you want to do is make sure the water is the hottest it can be. now start washer again on hot wash when you see water in bottom of tub stop machine to open door ADD two cups of dish washing power( brand does not matter I tell most people to buy cheap stuff at walmart) start machine let it run till you see powder disolve then stop washer and add 1 cup bleach. let unit go through complete cycle..If your washer has a clean cycle use that instead of the heavy or normal cycle. The most I ever had to do this treatment was 2 cycles and it worked every time.Note all front load washers the door must be left open to pervent odor/bellows should be wiped clean after each use/and a good cleaning at least once a month. anyhow if this helped please vote if you need more help please ask

NOTE the dish soap is the stuff for a dish washer

I have a new washer, less than three months old. It has been putting rust on my clothes. I bought this washer because I thought it was the old one. What could this be and how do I fix it?

It could be your water source, especially if you are on a well. It could also be coming from the water heater. They tend to rust over time and also collect dirt and sediment.

One quick test may reveal if it is the water heater.

Fill a large clear jug with smooth sides with water. First from the cold, then from the hot.

If you see discoloration from the hot water only, it is your water heater. This can often be solved by flushing the heater thoroughly at the drain until all discolored water is gone.

If you have discoloration from both sides, you may want to invest in a whole house water filter.
