During the wash stage there is a loud grounding sound while the washer is agitating the clothes. It almost sounds like the teeth of a cog missing and it doesnt seem like the machine is agitating very much. Where would I start?
You will want to pull the agitator out and the inner tub out and check the splines on the shaft and check to make sure that there is nothing caught under the tub. Make sure that the agitator is not damaged on the inside. If these check ok then the bearings would most likely be the cause of unit not operating.
About half way through a cycle I get an F54 error code. I replaced the pump (which had a small leak). Again, I got the F54 code. I noticed a brown "scum" on the exterior of the rotor. Where should I look for a leak up there?
If you are getting a brownish scum on the exterior of the rotor then you will want to look for the tub bearing for the leak. If the tub bearing is leaking then you will need to replace the bearings W10435302. If the the bearings have to be replaced you will also need to get the bearing tool.
Works fine until spin cycle then basket goes crazy and I get a UL error code. I rearrange the clothes and still UL error code. What stabalizes the basket?
Answer Hello Rhonda,
With an error code UL continually happening on any load you will want to replace the suspension springs W10189077. The suspension springs wear and cause Unbalanced loads.
My washer machine has a displaying cod message that said SD at the end of washing the clothes. The machine also does not drain the water or spin. Thank for helping me.
Answer Hi. The SD code is a slow drain. Remove the lower kick panel and remove the drain pump cover. Clean all debris. Feel inside to see if the pump impeller is spinning loose on the shaft. If so then replace the pump part # W10536347. Make sure the pump intake hose is clear. You may have to remove the hose off the tub and see if there is a blockage at the tub hole as well. Fill the tub with a small /cold normal wash and after a few min. advance it into a drain. Do this over and over to drain the suds. Remoive the pressure switch tubing and blow back into the tub to clear the tubing of suds or lint. Cut back to 1/3 of the soap fill so this does not occur again. Todays detergent is formmulated to clean well with less water. Use Afffresh washer cleaner monthly part W10135699 to maintain proper performance levels. Thank You.
Cycles fine gets to spin basket goes crazy.
Answer Hello Rob. If the unit gets off balance, you will need to order and replace the suspension W10440786 on the unit.
My Whirlpool washer shakes during the spin cycle and shuts down. The read states unbalaced load. I continue to re-balance the load. This machine just started this. Please help.
