Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

Open Question

I purchased Whirlpool Washer, Model WTW5310SQO SER Type 111 CU1940092 Purchased from Costco, in store, approximately a year ago. When I wash my bedsheets, 2 per load only, and with no other items, the items come out so twisted that I can hardly get them unrolled. This is a disappointment. My previous washer, a Kenmore used for 12 years, never exhibited this problem. I finally have become so disgusted that I decided to write you folks about this problem thinking that others may have also complained. The design of the washer for bedsheets is very poor. Now then, I've gotten this off my chest! Dolores Charlesworth...317 S. Desert Ave., Litchfield park, AZ 85340

SOURCE: Error code F09/Whirlpool Duet front loading washer

"F09" is an Overflow Condition error. This is usually attributed to a malfunctioning pressure switch, loose or broken connector between the Pressure Switch, Drain Pump and Central Control Unit (CCU), or...a drain pump or drain line that has become clogged.

Since this problem occurs periodically during the wash cycle, I would check your drain pump filter for obstructions first. It could be that you have debris lodged in the pump causing it not to drain properly. To access the pump:

1. Unplug the washer.
2. Remove the lower kick panel under the door by removing the screws under the bottom edge. HINT: Placing a couple of blocks of wood under the front feet of the washer will make access much easier.
3. The drain pump is located under the wash tub in the center. HINT: If you own a shop vac, remove the drain line from the standpipe at the wall and pull a vacuum through the drain line. This will remove all residual water from the washer and make clean up later a lot less messy. Now, remove the cover on the drain pump and remove. Clean out the pump filter and check the pump impeller for obstructions.

If you do not own a shop vac, place a bunch of towels around the drain pump BEFORE you open it. There's about a gallon or so of water in the tub, drain line and pump.

Try this first, and let me know if this corrects your problem. If not, you may need to check the pressure switch and wiring. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: Strong mildew odor in Duet washer

Check inside the rubber seal around the door of the washer! My sister had a horrible smell also & that's the first thing the repairman did was look inside there & sure enough there was a moldy sock in there. I check mine regularly now & have found coins, socks etc.

SOURCE: whirlpool ultimate care II top load skips agitation turns

I have the same problem, and i think it is a problem with the agitator i pulled mine off, (remove softener insert below that is a seal easily removed and then a 7/16'' bolt) seems a 'clutch' mechanism between base and upper agitators is shot.

SOURCE: whirlpool cabrio washer keeps flashing code F50

The F50 error code indicates that the RPS (rotor position sensor) detects no motor rotation. Check to see if the basket spins freely. If not, you could have an item caught between the outer tub and the inner spin basket. A toy or other item underneath the washer could also prevent the basket from spinning and would result in this F50 code.

If the basket spins freely, you could have a wiring failure that would prevent the motor from spinning.

We purchased a Kenmore washer about three years ago and it hasn't operated correctly since the purchase. During the agitation process it vibrates intensly. It appears to me that whatever was intended to...


I didn't see a Sears Parts site for a prefix 111 but here is the one for a washer (Whirlpool / Kenmore) with the prefix 110.

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?pop=true&modelNumber=110.27642600

If you look at the section on "Machine Base Parts" you'll see a number of springs and vibration pads.

It's possible that one or more of the springs or pads has come loose or broken.

In order to get to them you have to remove the cabinet.

Here is an illustrated description of how to do it.

Also see the Whirlpool Service Manual for top load washers. It has a troubleshooting section that describes the reasons for excessive walking or vibration.

http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%20W10114743.pdf

Also check that the "Shipping Pins" have broken loose. These pins are designed to be broken during installation and they should fall into clear plastic catch tubes.

Check the following.

1. Clogged drain line or water pump
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

2. Water Pump
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

Washing Machine wont spin/agitate


The most common problem is the lid switch. with a screw driver in hand open the lid and press down on the lid switch. sometimes the mounting screws will crack the switch housing and the striker can't move the actuator far enough. I am interested in the clicking noise, as this could indicate a pump issue or a sock seizing up the tub.
