I have a whirlpool cabrio washer that doesn't want to spin/drain. Is there a way for me to repair this myself?
The unit will not go into a spin cycle if not draining. You will want to check the drain pump to make sure that it is getting power to it and check to make sure that there is no obstruction in it. If there is power when calling for the drain then the pump is either clogged or the impeller has separated from the shaft.
When I turned the washer on it filled the tank real fast(warm/cold water cycle) then when it went to the rinse cycle and water is suppose to refill the tank it was only filling with cold water only at a really slow rate..no hot water was being filled and a humming noise was occurring. it took a good 15 minutes to fill. it was working fine in the first cycle of the wash but once it got to the rinse cycle very little water was being pushed through.
Answer Stanley, You will need to disconnect the hoses from the washer and the faucets, remove and clean all the sediment and debris from the filter screens in the fill hose and in the end of the inlet valve, you can also replace them if you decide to. You will also need to flush the water supply lines and faucets(run the faucets a minute or so, until the water is clear) The rinse cycle in your washer is automatically "cold" water(energy efficiency) and the cold supply has more sediment in it than the hot water supply, so it will flow at a less rate and pressure, causing the solenoid to "buzz" and require a lot more time to fill the tub.
