Question about Whirlpool AWM6120 Front Load Washer

2 Answers

Whirlpool Front loading washing Machine Model AWM8121 - Problem: Machine does not engage in any of the cycles. Pump seems to be working as it engages as per normal at the beginning of any cycle. But once the initial pump process completes nothing else happens. Also once this process happens the door open light begins to flash continually. I've cleaned the filter making sure there are no trapped foreign bodies present (all pumps hoses have been removed, cleared & repositioned). Water inlet hoses have all be checked. Power to the machine is fine. Please suggest a remedy.

Try playing around with the door switch. Access it by taking spring off the front rubber seal.

Unlike Whirlpol and Kenmore washers Maytag Washers drain and spin at the same time.

Fault code 3 = Drain failure or not detecting empty drum.

Check pressure switch, blocked drain, drain pump.
