Dryer stopped 1/2 way through cycle-hit start, drum won't turn


if the unit is sounding like it is struggling to start then you most likely have a bad bearing in the motor. they will usually get noisy and the become worse and louder. the unit also will run for awhile and then stop with the clothes not dry, if you try to start it it will go but will stop again shortly later.
if this unit is fairly old, like more then 10 years, you might want to look at the price of a new unit versus replacing the motor. the motor could cost you about 100-120 bucks if you put it in yourself and another 100 bucks if you pay someone to put it in for you. most new dryers will cost about 250-300 bucks, so the choice is up to you.

Can I make the water level on my whirlpool duet washer higher?


its because of the design of the machine they are water efficient.a front load uses any where from 15 to 18 gals. compared to 40 to 50 gals.for a top load. they also have a higher spin rate than the top loader,therefore making your close dryer and having a less drying time in the dryer.energy efficient too!!

Whirlpool Duet Ghw9150pw1 would not start


This advise is for Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet front loader washers and dryers with a Control Lock problem.

This may or may not be an indication of a serious problem. In the majority of the cases, this is a simple operator error. Nearly all these model appliances have some sort of Control Lock feature on the front panel now. This is a designed safety feature that is used to prevent small children from manipulating the controls. The controls can be easily locked or unlocked by pressing and holding the following button on the front panel:

Whirlpool Duet Washer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Whirlpool Duet Dryer - Press and hold the END OF CYCLE SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Washer - Press and hold the DRAIN/SPIN button for 3 seconds.

Kenmore Elite Dryer - Press and hold the AUTO DRY LEVEL button for 3 seconds.

These instructions may not be all inclusive for all Kenmore and Whirlpool models, but they are the most common. Chances are, if you have a Control Lock feature, the instructions will be printed on the front panel adjacent to the button that is required to lock or unlock the controls.

NOTE: These instructions may also work for newer model Maytag, Hotpoint, Admiral and Fridgidaire model front loaders as well. Refer to your owner's manual or front panel for instructions pertaining to your sepcific model.

If the Control Lock feature will not lock or unlock the appliance, unplugging the unit for AT LEAST 30 minutes is recommended in order to reset the main control board. In many cases this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches.

Clothing gets caught in the front of the dryer as it spins. This is leaving black marks and wholes in our clothing.

Washing machine spin cycle


chances are the pump may have something in it or the drain line is kinked a little front loader machines have a clean out on the pump that you can get to buy taking the lower front panel off.top loaders you have to pull access cover in the rear and pull hose off and check for blockage also check belt tension and quality of belt
