Washer wont start back up after breaker blew


If it blew the breaker then something inside has shorted out. You should definitely not use it until a qualified engineer has opened it inspected and measured and determined the cause of the short.

Washer pumps but half the time it won't spin unless you give the basket a little push. I use a small magnet to keep the lid relay closed. Once I give the basket a little push, the washer starts to...


Quite likely the spin motor is a capacitor start type motor and has a capacitor to start it (by placing a winding slightly out of phase with the rest of the motor in turn encouraging the movement of the motor). When it reaches about 200 RPM the capacitor is disconnected and runs without it.
Maybe the start capacitor is faulty or the internal switch/electronic control is faulty?

My washer is really loud and is bouncing around the kitchen we have just put new brushes in it as it stopped spinning but thats sorted now its got a mind of its own


Hiya,
Jumping washing machines are often caused by the simple things such as incorrect loading, when you purchased your machine it would have given you a load capacaty, for this machine i think it is quit large but it does have the options of extra settings 1 of which is a half load setting i would surgest you try a half load setting on 1 wash & see if this helps the idea behind this is that if your machine jumps even more than normal then you may be over filling it & if it reduces the amount of jumping then maybe you was under filling it, if the jumping remians the same then we can start to rule out reasons for the jumping.. that would be your starting point to resolve this problem.

Hope this helps

How do I get out the bearings? Rest of machine


It can be fixed, but I would not recommend it, as it involves a complete stripdown of the washer, and considerable expense is involved.
It is often the case that the drum shaft is worn, which entails fitting a new drum as well

Take my advice and call it a day, I have done several of these in the past under guarantee, and it takes about 2 hours, and I am experienced in this repair.
Another point to bear in mind is that depending upon when the washer was made, it may have a one piece tub fitted, in which case it is not possible to fit new bearings etc.

Why wont my machine start drying?


I called Whirlpool on 08706008989. The machine can only dry half a load of washing at a time. At the end of the washing cycle, the Programme dial should be at either the sun or half sun symbol. Remove half the washing, set the drying time via the drying time dial and press the 1/2 Load Dryer button - Voila dry clothes!

Any E20 code means your washer doesn't drain.  More than likely there is a screw, nail, coin, bobby pin, etc locking up your pump and causing it not to drain.  Keep in mind that your washer has a 1 yr warranty but some service companys will charge for this kind of repair because it is not technically covered under warranty.
