F30 error indicates a problem with the dispenser. The error means the control can't advance the dispenser motor to the correct position.

This usually is a problem with the dispenser motor or the linkage is jammed.

The fist image shows how to remove the top of the washer to access the dispenser. The 2nd image may help you see the dispenser a little better.

There are some marks on top of the dispenser and at start up you should see the indicator cycle through the marks and end up on the 2nd mark for detergent dispense.

With the top off you might get a better idea of what is jamming the dispenser. Use caution running the washer with the top off.

The dispenser switch/actuator (Part Number 8183186 ) or any part can be obtained from the following link: Sears PartsDirect .

Hope ths helps to solve it.

The F30 code refers to a failure of the dispenser motor. The clicking you were hearing was probably the dispenser motor switch going on and off trying to activate the dispenser motor.


this is an easy and relatively inexpensive repair that you can do yourself.

1. Unplug and disconnect power
2. Check mechanical linkage from dispensor motor to top of dispenser
3. Check wire harness connections to the dispenser motor and central control unit
4. Check dispenser motor for powered rotations

Hope this helps

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

Whirlpool Duet Sport not running it makes clicks and it grinds


A common problem with noises from washing machines has been the under wire that may come out of small clothes. In the washer they can get stuck in one of the inner basket holes and make a scrapping noise, they can actually make there way into the pump and jam the pump, or make a terrible noise when the pump is running. Grab a flash light and have a peek inside the washer for this. Front load washers seem very common to this happen! If the tiny cloth is showing signs of fraying, may be best not to wash it in the washing machine, replace the cloth.=======
It's noisy Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.
