Secondary problem was bleach being siphoned from dispenser prematurely when drawer slid in. Replaced Drawer, Detergent Container and Bleach Siphon parts. Appears to have been a change in the siphon design when compared to the original factory part. 5 loads completed since replacement of these parts with no premature siphon of bleach or leakage down the front of the washer.

Washer would not spin ( F-02 comes on)

  • Customer: Steve from Dubuque IA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours

  • 8 of 10 people found this instruction helpful
1-Unplug washer
2-Remove the bottom of the front washer cover 3 screws
3-Locate pump and loosen pump drain cover turn to left just a little enough for water to start draining.
4- Suck-up water with wet/ dry vac. Remove 1 screw holding pump.
5- Flip pump electrical cover up and disconnect wiring from pump.
6- Remove 2 hose clamps. The outlet was not to hard to remove, but the intake was not easy to get the pliers on.
7- Install new pump. See instruction to install. I didn't have to remove any ribs to install the connector as in the instruction sheet that came with the new pump. Also I didn't think it was very clear instruction.
8- Last installing the spring clamps. The outlet went okay, but the inlet I never could get on. I could not get the pliers on the clamp. I fooled around at least 20 min. trying to get the clamp on. I went out and bought a 3/4 to 1 3/4 stainless hose clamp with the worm drive design. That is what took so long.You may want to get new hose clamps before starting.
Other wise I did okay.

Pretty easy part replacing job. All screws were torx. Pry off plastic molding from front of machine where it covers the hinge with an old thin table knife or something, loosen the plastic molding inside the door, and replace the hinge. Minor hint... put the little round plastic molding back on the round part of the hinge BEFORE you screw the hinge onto the door.

I had sears at my house twice to fix this problem.they told me it was a penny in the pump then when that didn't work they came back and said i was using to much soap which i wasn't.What they fail to tell you is that the high effiiciency washers use less water so they put a less powerful drain pump in so they get over worked and lose the ability to get the water out so buy a new pump and it will be like it's new again.

Not Draining - Flashing F-02

  • Customer: Andrew from Southampton MA
  • Difficulty: Really easy

  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 7 of 8 people found this instruction helpful
First and foremost, I usually call a real man to come do a job like this, but after reading the repair stories, I gave it a shot. Very, very easy. Pop of the bottom panel off (three torx screws), drain the water out of the tub (if any), and just follow the directions in the box. Anyone can do this one.

leak suddenly developed

  • Customer: Gerald from Troy NY
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers
  • 7 of 9 people found this instruction helpful
Somehow a bobby pin got into the drain pump housing. When it started to drain, the pin was rammed through the housing.Extremely easy to remove and replace. No special skills needed. Whirlpool did a good job in making it idiot proof. Unpacking the part took longer than installing it. Don't be afraid to do this repair. If you own a pair of pliers and a screwdriver,you can do it.

It took more time to find the right screwdriver bit than to do the replacement. Removed the 2 screws holding the handle. Put new handle in place. Put the 2 screws back in. Done.

Washing Machine Filled with Water When Off

  • Customer: James from Naperville IL
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers
  • 6 of 7 people found this instruction helpful
Turned off the water and unplugged the machine

Took off the top of the washing machine by removing three screws along the back side

Removed the hoses connected to the water inlet valve

Removed the hose coming out of the water inlet valve

Marked the 4 electrical connectors

Used plyers to pull the electrical connectors off. Needed to just pull hard. Won't break them off.

Remove the screw that connects the valve to the back of the appliance.

I confirmed this was the part causing the problem by blowing air through it with my mouth. I could tell that the hot water side was not closing all the way.

To replace the part, just repeat the steps above in reverse.

Tub would not drain even though pump was running

Remove three screws holding the lower panel, the pump is right up front. Probably the hardest part was holding the hose clamps open while attaching the hoses to the pump housing. One screw holds the pump assembly in place. Hold the over-ride switch closed, check for leaks, and replace the loser panel.

Washer would not drain.

Removed three screws holding the cover, then one screw holding the pump assembly in place. After unplugging the power, it took two minutes to remove the clamp-rings from the hoses. The reverse was equally idiot-proof! But THIS "idiot" had 10-thumbs which added to the time to replace the lock rings! Added an extra 5 minutes at most! _grin_
