Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I JUST PURCHASED A WHIRLPOOL WTW5300V 3.5 CF WASHER. THERE WAS NO MANUAL. I TRIED USING IT TONIGHT BUT HAVE ON QUESTION. AS SOON AS I LIFT THE TOP, THE WATER TO FILL THE MACHINE TURNS OFF. I POUR SOAP IN WITH A COFFEE CUP FROM 5 GALLON TUB AND WAS USED TO RINSING THE CUP WITH THE TOP OPEN AND WATCHING TO SEE THAT I HAD THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF SOAP. IS THERE ANY WAS TO HAVE THE TOP OPEN AND HAVE THE MACHINE FILL AND AGITATE? THANKS FOR YOUR ATTENTION....

I think you missed a character in the model number. The WTW5300VW that I found will not operate if the lid is open. See page 6 of the manual (link given below). Most top-loading washers will not agitate when the lid is open for safety reasons.

I found a Whirlpool WTW5300VW on the Whirlpool site: https://www.whirlpool.com/laundry/washers/top-load/p.3.5-cu.-ft.-top-load-washer.wtw5300vw.html . If you click on the Specs & Manuals link, you will see all of the available documents. The direct link to the Owner's Manual is currently https://www.whirlpool.com/content/dam/global/documents/201005/owners-manual-W10330947-RevA.pdf .

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: My Whirlpool washer won't agitate or spin . But it does drain the water.

i also had the same problem, and it ended up being the coupler. It was not hard to replace, it cost me about 19.00. I didn't follow full recomende instructions. I tipped the washer backwards. Removed the drain pump and the motor itself. Then I removed the old coupling and placed the new one. The washer is working like new...

SOURCE: Whirlpool washing machine makes grinding noise

Hello Friend, Your solution is a real quick fix. The problem you are having is very common, your motor coupling has broken and that is what's making the grinding sound, also in this condition it will always pump out the water. Go to your local appliance parts store and purchase a new motor coupler, your cost should be under $25. It's very simple to remove old and install new coupler. First remove two screws from control panel and tilt control panel backwords exposing area under panel. You will see a metal clip on each side of cabinet under panel. Remove these clips, and unplug wires from plug in on cabinet. Remove cabinet by lifting up in back and tilting forward. Once removed you will see the innerworkings of your washer. Lay washer on it's back and remove the two spring clips that hold water pump in place and remove water pump. Leave water pump hooked up just move to side out of your way. Then you will remove the two screws that hold the motor clips in place and just snap the motor clips off. Be sure to unplug the wire harness plug from the motor. Just simply lift the motor straight up and off of the transmission. There you will see the motor coupler broken and to replace, just pry old one off transmission and motor with large flat head screwdriver. You will notice that one half of coupler is attached to the motor and the other to transmission. In the coupler kit you will receive both pieces and the rubber center connector. Just replace all the old with all the new and your problem will be solved. Happy to help, Tim.

SOURCE: GE washer does not agitate or spin

There is a fusable link that is known to blow. The replacement is available. Open the front access panel, Remove the tape from the wires that are taped together near the top of the wiring harness,about 3/4 of the way up. You will see a wire that is covered with shrink wrap (White with Red stripe I think) Cut it out, check for open circuit with an ohm meter. If it is open, (no continuity) Replace it. I used a regular piece of wire as a jumper for testing till I got the new fuse. The fuse kit I got comes with 2 of these fusable links. One is for a spare.

You had whirlpool work on it and a day later its not working. Whirlpool should provide a guarantee with their repair work. Tell them the repair has caused a new problem and ask them to come back and fix their repair because the work they did was not adequate.

Dryer beeping after being on about 5 minutes


If you purchased them in Feb of this year then the units are still under a full warranty. Maybe I am over simlifying this but you should call for service.

Whirlpool Cabrio Washer


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.

CF Card


Throw the camera away I would guess.

In inserting the card the wrong way round you have almost certainly damaged or bent pins in the base of the chamber.
To confirm this shine a torch down inside and look and see.
If this is the case - there is almost certainly no repair option.
The hours cost of stripping replacing the unit and parts availability mitigate against repairing digital cameras no matter how expensive they are

Error 30


The "E30" error code is displayed when reading/writing data on a CF card has failed. Especially, the error code "E30" may appears when you tried to remove a CF card while the camera was processing data. Solution To clear the "E30" error, try performing the following procedure. 1. Try using another CF card. If you have another CF card, try loading it in the camera. If the error code is not displayed when the other CF card is loaded, there may be something wrong with the first one rather than with the camera. 2. Use your computer's ScanDisk utility to check the CF card for errors. Use ScanDisk to check the CF card for card error or card failure. Refer to the instruction manual for your operating system or Windows Help for further instructions. (If you are using a Macintosh, use the "Disk First Aid" program to check for card error or card failure. Refer to the instruction manual for your Macintosh OS for further information.) Be sure to back up the data on the CF card on the computer before you check the CF card. If a card error or card failure occurs when you use your computer's ScanDisk, there is something wrong with the CF card. Follow ScanDisk's on-screen instructions to solve the problem. 3. Format the CF card with your camera Try to format the CF card with your camera. Please refer to the "Camera User Guide" for your camera for instructions on formatting CF cards. Also, please note that formatting a CF card will erase all data on the card. Once the CF card is formatted, follow the procedure described in step 2 above and use your computer's ScanDisk on your computer to check the CF card for errors. If a card error or card failure occurs when you are using computer's ScanDisk, there is something wrong with the CF card.

Memory card error - E50


Error Code "E50" (CF card formatting error) When a camera error occurs, an error code like "Exx" will be displayed, where the x's represent numbers. The "E50" error code indicates formatting a CF card has failed. Solution To clear the "E50" error, try performing the following procedure. 1. Try using another CF card. If you have another CF card, try loading it in the camera. If the error code is not displayed when the other CF card is loaded, there may be something wrong with the first one rather than with the camera. 2. Use your computer's ScanDisk utility to check the CF card for errors. Use ScanDisk to check the CF card for card error or card failure. Refer to the instruction manual for your operating system or Windows Help for further instructions. (If you are using a Macintosh, use the "Disk First Aid" program to check for card error or card failure. Refer to the instruction manual for your Macintosh OS for further information.) Be sure to back up the data on the CF card on the computer before you check the CF card. If a card error or card failure occurs when you use your computer's ScanDisk, there is something wrong with the CF card. Follow ScanDisk's on-screen instructions to solve the problem. If the same error occurs when you are using the CF card supplied with the camera, please contact the retailer where you purchased the camera or the nearest Canon service center. If the error code is displayed right after you took a picture, the image may not have been recorded. Switch the camera to playback mode to check if it was recorded. Precautions for handling a CF card: - Do not remove a CF card or disconnect the camera's power source while the camera is recording, loading, or erasing data on a CF card. - CF cards are high-precision electronic devices. Do not bend, force, or subject them to shocks or vibration. - Do not attempt to disassemble or alter a CF card. - Place the CF card in the supplied case for storage. - Moving a CF card rapidly between temperature extremes may cause condensation in the card, leading to potential malfunctions. To avoid condensation, place the CF card in a sealed plastic bag before moving it into a different temperature area and allow it to adjust slowly to the new temperature. If condensation forms on the CF card, put it aside until the water droplets have evaporated completely. - Do not use or store CF cards in the locations subject to dust or sand, high humidity, or high temperatures.
