Question about Haier HLP21E Top Load Washer

Haier HLP21E Top Load washer keeps beeping & blinking after water intake. It will rinse out the water when 'rinse' pressed. However it does not 'spin' but instead all three orange lights start blinking & beeping. How do I fix this? Help!

I have a Haier HLP21N that had the same problem. Three blinking lights and refused to spin. It turns out the issue was the lid. The left side plastic hinge had broken the week before. What I didn't realize is that when the lid closes, that back hinge pushes up a rod which tells the machine that the lid is closed and it's safe to spin. So check that hinge and if it is broken you will either need to order a new lid or find some material to stuff under the hinge so that it stays up. I chose the latter option. Just know that going the DIY route means that your machine will continue to spin if you open the lid going forward!

No spin with alarm means the unit is out of balance.
The troubleshooting manual reads:
"The safety switch acts. The
spinning cannot work (The
WASH, RINSE and SPIN
indicator flash and alarm goes
off every 10 seconds). If
trouble cannot be solved after
alarming, it will alarm again
every few minutes."

To solve this the load must be balanced:

Make sure to level the machine on a solid floor. Also you may have to redistribute the clothing in the tub for even weight distribution.

SOURCE: Haier Top Load Washer doesn't spin

Hi
There can be two possibilities,one if it has a belt, it is either stretched or slipping or if it doesnt have a belt then there is a clutch like device between the motor and the basket, which is either broke or cracked.
Or follow this easy steps...
Unplug the washer and turn off the water faucets.
Disconnect the water hoses and the drain hose and pull the washer away from the wall, leaving yourself enough room to work behind the appliance.
Lay an old towel down to kneel on and soak up any water that leaks from the hoses.
Remove the rear access panel.
Locate the motor. The rubber drive belt goes around a pulley wheel attached to the motor.
Press on the belt. If it gives more than ¾ inch or so, it needs to be tightened.
Loosen the mounting nut for the motor and push the entire motor to increase the tension on the belt.
Hold the motor in place and tighten the mounting nut.
Make sure you don't tighten the belt too much or it will break. You should be able to press on it and feel it give just slightly.
Replace the drive belt if it shows signs of wear.

Thanks for contacting fixya.com

Why doesn't Washer drain water in spin cycle.


If it drains OK during wash and rinse cycles, then the controller is not turning the pump on for some reason.

You either have a bad solenoid, timer, loose belt, or water level sensor.

After working well for six months, my washer now expels water at random points during the wash and rinse cycles.


Check inside the fill hose for debris. There is a screen designed to block debris from getting inside the machine valve. If the screen builds up with debris the water slows down. Sounds like the water is filling too slow. Also the unit and/or the load may not be balanced causing it to stop and drain out. If it's okay then see what lights are blinking when these events occur and post here.

Something must be clogged because the water wont flow into the machine and sprays around the top of the hose end at the washer. I checked the little filter under the hose and its clean.


There should be lights blinking, indicating a fault.
If this unit is brand new call warranty service.
If this unit has run in the past you will need either a new intake valve or new computer sequencer board.

How to tighten the belt on haier hlp21e


When it stops post here what blinking lights are on.
Belt should have some movement. If you hear the motor straining but the tub is stuck then it will be worn, hot and flaking.
The water pressure switch can stop the unit
The safety switch can also stop the unit for out of balance. I would reload the washer and check if level as well. Then see if you get the blinking lights.

My Haier HLP21E top load washer is only one month old, and there is some leaking from under the machine.


Check the hose clamps on the bottom. Sometimes the clamps are not all the way on or tight enough. I saw one that did the same thing.

EDIT: one of the mounting screws on the bottom of the tub will create a "tear" (or another word that rhymes with track) in the tub (Fixya says "The word [email protected]#%^ is considered as profanity on Fixya. Please review your answer and try again").

I used a plastic soldering iron from Harbor Freight and cut a piece of the plastic webbing off the tub to "solder" the hole shut on the tub.

Draining extra water


Cut off the zip tie that holds the drain tube. Bring the drain tube as close to the ground as possible and siphon out the water - yes, that means sucking on that hose. Have a bowl handy to collect the water, or do it somewhere you don't mind getting wet. Just keep the end of the hose lower than the basin of water and you should have no problems.
