This model does require the use of HE detergent. Using improper detergent can cause potential problems. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r629564-suds_error_whirlpool_kenmore_front

Item number 1. of this link explains why it is important to use HE detergent. Prolonged use of improper detergent can cause premature failure of the drain pump, seals and hoses. Merely, cutting back on the amount of regular detergent does not solve the problem. They are formulated for different size wash tubs, and different water use.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Whirlpool duet washer F02 or F21 error code.


This error code indicates that drain times are longer than expected.

Make sure the drain hose is not kinked or clogged. Straighten the hose for adequate water flow. Remove any blockage from the drain hose, drainpipe or utility sink. Use the U-shaped drain hose form on the drain hose, and secure the drain hose.

Use only HE High Efficiency detergent. Using non-HE detergent, or more than the manufacturer's recommended amount of detergent, can cause excessive suds. The excess suds will slow or stop the removal of water from the washer.

Concentrated detergents labeled 2x and higher will require a small amount of detergent based on load size. Always follow the manufacturer's recommendations.

Temporary fixes:

To remove the error display, press Pause/Cancel twice.

If Pause/Cancel does not work:
  1. Unplug the washer or disconnect the power for one minute.
  2. Plug in the washer or reconnect the power.
  3. Re-select the cycle and press Start.

The washer won't keep enough water in it to wash the clothes


This is what is called a 'high efficiency' washer, meaning that it is supposed to use a minimum amount of water to clean clothes as opposed to older washers that just filled up the tub to a fixed level. You also need to use special 'HE' (high efficiency) detergent in these machines (read labels carefully for amount to use also). Most major brands of detergent have "HE" liquid detergents available - look on the bottle for the HE logo. If this doesn't work, run through the troubleshooting steps in your owners manual and if that doesn't work, and the machine is under warranty, call for a warranty repair.

I have a whirlpool cabrio wont spin code comes up SD


SD is code for suds. Try running the machine empty to clear the suds. Use only HE Detergent. HE stands for high efficiency (strictly speaking it is low sudsing.) Price should be equal to non he liquids detergents.

Hello.

Whirlpool washers are available in many colors and with different options, including various tub sizes, front or top load styles, a fabric care system, high efficiency wash features and energy, time and water sensors. The washers may be purchased in department stores, home repair stores and online. Many are Energy Star rated. However, the washing machine may malfunction occasionally and not agitate or spin. If this occurs, some troubleshooting steps may be useful in solving the problem.

1 sure the washer has electrical power and is connected to a grounded electrical supply. Replace or reset the circuit breaker or fuse if needed, particularly in event of a recent power outage. Make sure the washer lid is closed tightly before use; the washer won't work if the lid is open.

2 void selecting the following cycles: "Extra Low,, "Low," "No Spin", "Delicate," "Casual/Perm Press" or "Hand Washables." All of these cycles use little to no spinning or agitating during the cycle. Select the highest possible spin cycle for the fabrics being washed.

3 pen the washer lid and redistribute the load; unbalanced loads may cause the washer to stop or slow down. Add additional items if only one large item,
such as a rug or blanket, is in the washer.

4 Use only the recommended amount of laundry detergent, as excess sussing can reduce the overall spin speed or cause the washer to stop agitating. If the Whirlpool washer is a high-efficiency model, use only high-efficiency laundry detergent.

5 Examine the drain hose and straighten if kinked. Remove any possible obstructions and ensure the end of the hose is no more than 96 inches from the floor, as this will cause water to flow back into the washing machine.

Thanks.

I do most of my shopping online and liquid bleach sometimes doesn't ship without breaking. Is it OK to use dry or powder bleach? I have the whirlpool cabrio top load large capacity model.


It should be okay to use dry bleach, if you follow the instructions on the bleach. Some bleaches require dissolving in water first, others can be used dry.

I have been given a Whirlpool AWM 312 by friends moving overseas and don't know how to operate it and would like to get a manual. My main problem is what drawer (front the left facing the machine) do I...


The manuals for most Whirlpool appliances are available here: http://www.whirlpool.com/custserv/index.jsp . Look for the full model number under the lid on the rim of the washer. AWM 312 is not a complete model number. Next is the washer a top loading or front loading machine? This is actually indicated in the model number - most Whirlpool models start WFW (front-load) or WTW (top-load). The exception is the compact washers (LCE4332PQ is the current model).

For the front-loading washers, the detergent goes into the largest compartment (usually the left-most part of the drawer). Top-loading washers that have a detergent compartment usually have it positioned at the top center back of the tub. Use HE detergent for high efficiency washers and do not use more detergent than recommended (using less is okay).

I hope this helps.

Keep getting a code 67 what does that mean


If I'm not mistaken, this is an oversudsing error. If you are using regular, not HE (high efficiency) detergent, this will happen in the new front load washers. The new front washers require HE detergents to work properly. Dump the regular soap, go to the store and buy a bottle of detergent marked with the blue "HE".
