Question about Whirlpool AWG329 Front Load Washer/Dryer
I'm trying to resolve a problem with our Whirlpool AWG329 washer/dryer. You can start any wash programme ie. select a number. The machine fills with water, heats up no problem and starts washing. The machine then does not accept a conditioner wash when it moves onto (5), the drum is still full of water, i then have to discharge the water. The programme selector turns to the spanner symbol. The manual indicates a technical fault with the motor or temperature sensor, I suspect it may be some thing else. I have cleaned out the dispenser tray and drain pump with no signs or items obstucting the impler. For some reason the machine will not continue to a condition wash. Any feedback from the site forum would be appreciated
I believe the selector knob on a Whirpool just has to be turned counter-clockwise with the selector pushed in. It will spin off the shaft and then the outer indicator dial will pull off. The shaft also has a keyed slot that will only allow the dial to be removed and installed one way, so there should be no question as to how it goes back on.
Was there a reason as to why you are removing the washer selector knob? If this is a simple matter of replacing a broken water temperature selector, you shouldn't have to remove any of the control knobs to gain access to the selector. The entire front panel comes off by removing the screws holding it in place. That way you can access the broken selector from behind the front panel much easier. Just remove the panel right above the washer top (under the dryer) and it should expose the front panel mounting screws. Remove these screws and the front panel comes off. Just make sure the unit is unplugged before you begin. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you need further assistance.

your washers drain hose is too far down the drain pipe which is causing a siphoning action pull the washers drain hose out pipe some you should be able to hear water dropping into the pipe the reason it only happens in the rinse cycle is because the water from wash is being drained and before the water vacuum is broken the rinse water comes in causing it to keep draining

SOURCE: Spanner nut removel
Hi, The proper tool is P# TB123A.
You can also use a coal chissle and a hammer. Be careful that part of the spanner nut doesn't break off and hit you with the chissel. It takes a preety solid hit to losen the nut.
Hope this helps. If it does, please rate my comments and how I did in helping you. You can order the wrench as well as any other parts on my web site

Remove the bottom casing covering the front of the machine just above the floor. Unscrew the circular cap SLOWLY- beware of vast amounts of water escaping though!
I had to use a low height roasting pan to catch water, and just unscrew the cap enough so as to control the flow of water, and enable to empty water away until its all gone. Incidentally, an old hairgrip was found to be the cause of my problem.
Confusingly, "clean pump" meant clean filter!

Tips for a great answer:
It sounds like you could have a short in one of 3 places – the start button, the timer, or the hot/cold water solenoid. The start button is the least likely so I’d first check out the solenoid. Does this happen when it’s set on hot only, cold only, and/or warm water? If so, probably you’ll have to get at the solenoid by opening up the top. Disconnect the wires to the solenoid and try again. If the circuit blows, it’s not the solenoid. If it doesn’t blow, replace the solenoid. If it’s not the solenoid, it’s probably a burned timer and you’ll have to replace that.
