My whirlpool cabrio. Doesn't spin. Would a shift actuator work? It doesn't fill with water either.
You will want to check the shifter on the unit to make sure that it is good. The resistance of the motor should be between 14 and 25 ohms of resistance. You can also pull the tech sheet from the control panel and run through the diagnostics and see if there are any error codes.
I am getting error code F7E1. I already changed the actuator but still getting the same code. The symptoms are as follows: during the rinse cycle it does not spin at full speed for long enough then jumps back to 17 min and rinses again and then never fully spins leaving the clothes wet. Any ideas?
With having already replaced the shifter assembly, the most likely cause for the unit would be that the control board being faulty. You may want to put into diagnostics and try to clear error codes and see if this corrects the issue and if not then the control board would need to be replaced.
I have a Kenmore Washer Model 11020022011. When I start the load to wash I hear a few clicks then the tub spins for a second then stops after that it fills with water..After putting cloths in to wash it does nothing. I hear the motor on but still no wash. And after a while it does everything it suppose to do and when it comes to the Rinse cycle it still won't wash but it drains fine and Spins perfect. So can someone HELP me and tell me what problem that sounds like..?
Answer Boshie, There are two possibilities and they are both in the same area (the bottom of the gearcase). The W10006355 shift actuator assembly moves or shifts the gear lever between agitate and spin, it seems to be the weakest link in the system at present. Then there's the splutch assembly W10721967 This is the assembly that actually drives the agitate and spin shaft, it could be damaged or deformed and the agitate cam isn't engaging the gears to make the washer agitate. If you raise the front of the washer, you should find the tech data sheet attached to the inside of the front cabinet. If you retrieve the information and conduct the error/diagnostic codes and perform the automatic or manual function tests, you'll have a better idea of the issue and can target where to start.
The lid is not locking fill and lid LED comes on when you press start. than lid red LED flashes. I have changed the lid switch it does the same.
what could be the problem ?
Answer Sam, If the W10006355 shift actuator is in the wrong position, or the RPS inside the assembly is not supplying the proper information to the control board, the lid latch can malfunction and not lock and will cause the flashing LED. The actuator is located underneath the tubs, on the Gearcase assembly. Check and make sure there are no loose connections at the shift actuator, if all's OK, replace the actuator.
How does a shift actuator work for a washer?
Answer Hello Anthony. This device determines if the motor will run, and in which part of the cycle to perform (wash or spin) by shifting the "splutch' and activating the agitate shaft or the spin shaft in the gear case.
