Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

It might still have water in it from the previous wash.
Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
Here are my complete, general pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the filter and the motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Hi Lisa. I'm not familiar with the particular machine but I suspect that if you look just inside the machine near the door catch you will see a small button/lever that operates a switch. (look up microswitches on net). Switch either needs adjusting or replacing. You could try holding the switch closed with your finger or something to see if the machine is going to work - if it does look like working (filling?) the switch just needs adjustment.

Whirlpool washing machine AWO/D 5556 washing machine service light showing ?


The warning light comes on because the machine "thinks" that something is wrong. Since it stops on and off something is wrong.
Why not phone the Whirlpool service in your area and tell him aboout this and ask what you can do??
give it a try

Whirlpool AWO/D4305 Washing Machine. The "Water


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Providing that the tap is turned fully on AND the hoses are not kinked or squashed at the back, this is symptomatic of a malfunctioning water control valve- the hot water one, if the washer is hot and cold fill, and the cold one if it is just cold fill!
Sorry but it needs a service call ;-0(
Good luck,
John C
