#309661 Whirlpool WTW4800B - washer drains as it fills

Posted by sh2sh2 on 16 December 2014 - 05:46 PM

i suspect one of 2 things


1) the control board is bad

2) the power supply you have is not what the board was designed for and is causing it to malfunction

#309428 AM VMW NTW4701BQ0 agitates, fills and immediately pumps out

Posted by sh2sh2 on 12 December 2014 - 07:35 PM

what was the original complaint? 


if running the washer on the normal cycle the washer does not fill up and agitate for the rinse cycle, only does a "spray rinse" which consists of it slowly turning while filling with water for a minute or 2 and then pumps and and spins which sounds like what your describing


if it has a fabric softener switch it overrides this and fills up and agitates, also some cycles such as heavy duty and others use a "traditional rinse"

#308983 Whirlpool Duet dryer GEW9200LW1 not drying completely

Posted by sh2sh2 on 06 December 2014 - 01:34 PM

Not sure if this will help or not but I just discovered a way to adjust the temperature from the factory settings.  Had a client with same complaint, dryer only worked well on one cycle, "Bulky".  Found out you can change the Dryness level by holding in the dryness control for 5 seconds, when the dryer is off, and the dryer will beep and display CF for 1 sec. and then show the current dryness setting.  The setting comes with it set to low, you can change it to medium or high to make the automatic setting dry longer.  Once you change the setting push the start key to lock it in.  It will not change again until you change it.  I changed the setting for my customer and it solved her problem.  She had been using it on one cycle for 3 years, now she can use them all and work great.



your not changing the temperature, just how they dryer perceives dryness, "customer focused" dryness level adjustment just makes the dryer run 15 percent longer.  this adjustment is not available on the older duet dryers only the newer style, starting around 08 or so
