My washing machine is a Whirlpool model 5132E commercial Quality( I think). It fills up ,washes,then nothing happens,this happens on all cycles,(it dies)..is it major or is it fixable
You will want to check the lid switch to make sure that it is good and check the drain pump to make sure that it is not clogged or obstructed. An obstructed drain pump will not allow unit to go into drain or spin.
how do you get to drive belt
Answer Kelly, The drive belt is located on the bottom of the machine. Slide the washer out far enough to raise the front feet a few inches off the floor, place a wood block under the front feet, or move the washer far enough out to prop the washer against the wall. The motor is "spring loaded" to maintain pressure on the belt, once you "roll" the belt off of the transmission pulley the belt will fall off the other two, reverse the procedure to install the new belt.
My washer is making noise like a plopping belt and slipping as it agitates.
Answer Hello Tina,
If the noise is like a screeching type of noise then you would need to replace the brake 35-6714 and 35-6918 stator. You may also want to check the drain pump to make sure that there is nothing in the pump creating noise and causing slippage of belt.
My washer makes an awful noise similar to tires squealing this happens at the end of the spin cycle. Any suggestions??
Answer Hello Christine. Based on the information you provided, the brake 35-6714 and the stator 35-6918 needs to be replaced on the unit. When doing this, it is good to replace the snubber 21002026 as well.
My washer does not spin.
Answer Hello Janice. If the washer works, but does not spin or drain, you will need to check and see if the lid switch is bad and needs to be replaced on the unit.
