Whirlpool frontloading washer won't spin
Posted 14 May 2005 - 08:15 AM
I have a Whirlpool GHW9200LW Duet front loading washer, which has been great until yesterday (well over a year). It was in the middle of a normal wash cycle when the house lost power for a few minutes (not unusual). Now, the washer won't spin the drum. It emits a hum as though it's trying to spin, but nothing happens. Eventually a "02 F" display appears and the washer beeps slowly. The drum will freely rotate by hand. There is about 2 inches of water in the bottom of the drum which won't drain out.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. ;)

[align=left]If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes, the water valves are turned off and “F/02” is[/align]
[align=left]Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.[/align]
[align=left]NOTE: After 4 minutes the “Sud” error will be displayed, then 4 minutes later[/align]
[align=left]the F/02 error code will be displayed.[/align]
[align=left]• Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked[/align]
[align=left]• Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is[/align]
[align=left]• Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects[/align]
[align=left]• If the above does not correct the problem replace the pump[/align]

btw, this is an excellent resource. I work at a consuling engineering firm and we've been interested in this type of online consulting. If we could find a way to wring the money out of it... ;)

... so pump replacement is above my pay grade.
Ok, but you'd be throwing money away. Replacing the pump on this washer is about a mug and half on the SUDS-o-meter.
