Whirlpool Washers

Please read the tips for troubleshooting the most common problems with Whirlpool Washers before contacting one of our technicians.

Motor Runs but doesn’t spin ?

  • If the motor runs and water is pumped out, the belt will need to be tightened.
  • If you smell or see smoke before it stopped spinning the belt needs to be replaced
  • The washer agitates and pumps water out but won’t shift into spin during spin cycle. It may be the lid switch is bad, or the timer

  • Possible low water pressure into your home
  • Hoses may need to be back-flushed


Tub fills but it doesn’t agitate ?

  • The belt needs replacement
  • If the tub fills and the motor runs but the tub does not agitate agitation, either the water recirculation is pump out. Tub fills OK and then motor runs with no agitation but water is pumped out and fill starts again.


Washes and spins but doesn’t drain ? 

  • Water recirculates in washer and doesn’t drain
  • The pump may not have shifted to drain cycle
  • Motor runs but doesn’t pump out
  • Look for a kinked drain hose 


Washing Machine Skips Cycles ? 

  • Recirculates water or skips cycles – timer may be bad

Tub Crashes into the side of the unit ?

  • Check distribution of load for off-balance

Reviewer: Susan L.

I was surprised at how quickly they sent out John, the technician. He identified the problem with my washing machine. He told me he had to go get the part and would return in a couple of hours. He did a great job; & it’s working better than ever.
