Kenmore washer will fill and that it when it goes to start spinning it makes a weird noise


Sounds like the controller behind he knob is shot. May be cheaper to get a new one or look for a new used one on craigslist. If you google the model number and addparts list it should bring up a link to the sears parts list. Youcan then gogle the part # for the controller module and see what it costs.

F30 code? Makes a weird noise and drains the soap from dispenser but no water is added and won't spin.


The F30 error code will flash when the dispenser motor cannot be driven to its proper position.

* It could have a mechanical failure in the linkage between the dispenser motor and the top of the dispenser.
* Loose wire connection between the machine control board and the dispenser motor
* Failed dispenser motor

My Whirlpool washing machine AWM6100 is weird. it washes no problems but when it comes time to drain there is an awful noise any idea? it does drain and spin its just the noise


you may have something stuck in the drain pump that is rubbing or grinding on the impellar wheel
check for any obstruction in the drain pump and the hoses that led in and out of the drain pump.if you do not find anything then you may need to replace the drain pump. as long as this noise only happens in the drain cycle.

Frigidaire front loading washer stopped at rinse cycle. 3 beeps


When in doubt check the easiest thing to check. The pump can cause a number of errors to come up. Since the unit stopped in rinse I would start but checking to make sure there is nothing obstructing the pump before going to the expensive parts.

Weird rubbing or mild grinding noise when in spin cycle.


It sounds like the bearings on your tub are going. This is an expensive and difficult job to do. (approx $450 parts and labour and you may do more damage trying to take it apart)

Frigidaire front loader washing machine won't spin...


It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
