My washing machine won't run the rinse cycle. Everything else is fine. It just runs the wash cycle then stops. You can manually move it to spin cycle, which works but rinse doesn't either on its own or manually.
Is the water inlet valve getting voltage? If so, then the cold water side of the valve is plugged with sediment.
I like your website, but can't figure out what's wrong with my brand new washer...we've leveled it (and it is level), but the thing keeps walking. it's on a concrete floor. Problem is, we've had it for 1-1/2 years, but it's brand new and just connected it so no warranty....help me if you can!!
Hearing motor noise? If yes, replace the coupler. If no, replace the pressure switch. For help locating these parts and to buy replacements, click here.
Our 10-yr-old washer has suddenly stopped moving through the cycles. I have to manually turn the knob to get it to switch from wash to soak, for example.
I think it's worth replacing the timer.
Samurai Appliance Repairman, You're fantastic! I could have never fixed my problem without the extensive information on your site. Having said that, I would like to add a couple of things to your site that may be of assistance. First of all, I found a million & one sites, including yours that said I needed to remove the end caps on my Whirlpool Washer & then remove the exposed screws to get the console off. After ALMOST destroying the console, I realized that the console simply prys off the washer top via a couple of clips (located under the end caps which don't really come off). There are no screws. This would be very valuable for anyone with a very new whirlpool/kenmore top loader.
Help! Need to know where to put oil in Whirlpool washer? AND what type of oil. Replaced motor coupling and lost a lot of oil in the process (oops!)
I have a Kenmore direct drive washer. Couple of years ago I replaced the drive coupling. Now a new problem. When the machine is set to the regular agitation speed the motor will not "engage". The agitator just moves in spurts. If set to Fast or very slow, the machine will work at the selected speed. This sort of reminded me of a motor with a bad capacitor, but near as I can tell there is only one cap in the machine. worse case I suppose the motor had fried. Any thoughts?
Last year I purchased a Kenmore Elite direct drive top loader washer (110.15962401). Just noticed a small amount water was not fully draining so I wanted to check outer tub and/or pump for a stray panty or sock. I also found numerous sites that said remove the end caps, which I do not have, and I am certain there are no screws. However, I also cannot pry off the console from the washer top as suggested by Greg B. Another site referring to a similar model said to ďtake a putty knife and slide it under each end, you will feel a spring. Push on the spring and pull up on the panel and it will release.Ē This doesnít work either. Any suggestions so I donít have to destroy the console or call repair just to get the console open to remove the cabinet?
I have a Maytag A212S washing machine. During the wash cycle, the agitator fails to operate and the drive belt starts to smoke. The motor is running fine. During spin cycle, everything works fine. When I set the machine in the wash cycle, I can turn the 'wheel' at the bottom of the agitator by hand but the turning becomes difficult just before the agitator changes its direction of rotation. So, the agitator will start going clockwise, I keep turning until it gets very difficult to turn and then it 'breaks' and starts turning counter-clockwise. I suspect it has something to do with the transmission- any ideas? If it is the trainmission, can we narrow it to a specific part or do I need to replace the whole transmission.
what if any damage can be done to a washer when you leave the lid open with clothes and water sitting in it for over 8 hours?
I have a Kenmore front loading washer that doesn't work on some cycles. That is, it doesn't drain water and cuts off. However, it does work on the permanent press cycle. What could be the problem?
Help! I have Whirlpool top loader model# LSQ8543JQ0. The problem is that the agitator will not spin in conjunction with the tub during the spin cycle. It seems to be working fine during both the wash and rinse cyles. Yes, I have been watching during each cycle.
I have a Whirlpool washer (model #LXR9245EQ0) that will not fill the tank during the rinse cycle.
My hotpoint washer will agitate but only when I push on the top of the agitator. ???? It spins and empties just fine. You comments on replacing the belt don't seem like the problem as pressure on the top causes it to operate normally. Any help is appreciated.
I have a direct drive Whirlpool. The agitator works, but it won't spin. It does drain. My wife said she heard a weird noise before it stopped spinning. I figure it's the coupler, but I've also heard that the motor goes one way for agitating and another way for spinning, and that the motor could be burned out in the spin direction. Is there a way to tell if this is the issue.
I am your gracious host, Samurai Appliance Repair Man.
