How to clean out the fabric softener cup in a Whirlpool-built direct drive washer

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Washing Machine Repair 02 July 2011 · 1,049 views
whirlpool, washer, dispenser

just pull the dispenser off the top of the agitator and soak it in extremely hot water for a bit.
Then using an old toothbrush or like object and some water pressure clean it out.
It's just clogged up...may take a while to get it all out.

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Washing Machine Repair 02 July 2011 · 773 views

the only permenant fix is to replace the tranny. the

Your going to need a 6 packer for this job.

How to diagnose a Maytag Atlantis washer that won't spin or agitate

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Washing Machine Repair 02 July 2011 · 1,456 views

if the machine fills to the set level and the motor is running
to agitate check underneath and see if the large center transmission
pulley is turning. If it is and the agitator isn't going back and forth then
you have a bad transmission...time to buy another machine.

If the large pulley isnt turning but the motor is running then the belt is slipping on the motor pulley.
Those plastic motor pulley go bad and melt as you described and may be your problem, and if so,
you can't buy the "exact" replacement pulley w/o buying the motor...but, the is another belt and
pulley combination that can be used if you find that this is your problem.

Let us know.

How to tell if you have a worn tub bearing or a broken drum suport in your front loading washer

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Washing Machine Repair 30 June 2011 · 1,328 views

Do this test...
open washer door and grab the top edge of the inner wash basket
push straight up on the basket while steadying the outer drum with your other hand
is there any lateral movement? Or is it tight and secure?
hope for the latter, because the former is the telltale sign of a worn bearing, a broken support spider or both...not worth repair if this is the case.

If all is good here, go around back and take off the cover. Look for a loose pulley on the basket shaft.
of course the counterweights could be loose but you don't need me to tell you how to check this.

How to troubleshoot an F28 error code in a Whirlpool Duet Sport washer

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Washing Machine Repair 30 June 2011 · 2,058 views

OK ... going by memory here.

- First ohm out your motor. You should have approx 6 ohms between 1-2,1-3 and 2-3. You should also get 120 ohms on 5-6 which is the tach on the motor. If that is good ...

- Open up the little flap on the MCU board. Start a regular wash cycle and check for voltages at the MCU. On the pink wires you should get 120v. (With the wires connected to the MCU - don't disconnect them to check the voltage.) On the connector with the little blue wires - you should have 5 vDC.

- If you are getting the correct voltages at the MCU and the motor ohms out good, then you have a bad MCU.

- If you are not getting those readings at the MCU, then check continuity on the blue wires and the 2 pink wires from the CCU to the MCU.

- If you have continuity on all wires and the connections look good, then you have a bad CCU.


Part links ==> MCU, CCU
