Has your Whirlpool washer stopped working as well as it once did? Is it not running at all? Before you call for appliance repairs you may want to find out what is wrong in the first place. The following are a few ideas of what could be wrong if certain issues are occurring.
What is Wrong with a Whirlpool Washer When It Won’t Turn On?
The first thing to check is that the machine is properly plugged in. If it is plugged in, try unplugging, waiting a minute, and then plugging it back in. If this does not fix the issue, unplug your washer and plug something else into the outlet. This could show you that there is an issue not with your washer but with the outlet yourself.
If that device works then one of the following is likely the culprit:
- There is a bad lid switch in your Whirlpool washer.
- The timer in your washer is bad.
These are both issues that a professional needs to address.
What is Wrong When a Washing Machine Won’t Fill Up with Water?
Take a look at the lid switch and timer as they are the most likely reasons for your Whirlpool washer not working. You can also take a peek at the inlet hoses for the washer to ensure they are not clogged or damaged. It may also be that the water switch within the control panel is the problem.
What is Wrong When the Water Won’t Drain
First, you want to see if the hose in the back is clogged. If it is then you will need to clear it. If not, then you may have a bad or loose drive belt. Check the drive belt and if it is not loose, call American Appliance Repair for help.
What is Wrong with My Whirlpool Washer When it is Leaking?
If you have a leaking unit then you will check all hoses. It is likely that one of them is leaking. Look to see if any hose appears to be loose. If it does then you will need to tighten it or call in the pros to do so. If it is damaged then you will need to replace it.
