Answers :

Unplug and drain it, IT is easier to drain if you use a wet and dry vacuum. Get some towels ready and unhook the water supply hoses. Lay the unit down on its side or back and you can then see the shocks and springs and bumpers by looking into the bottom of it. Some machines allow you top open the top cover where the lid is.

How do i turn on the water for my washer?I just moved in to my place, tried to start the washer but it started spinning before any water came in. I think the water must be switched off. There are two taps opening pipes going into the washer, a blue and a white one. Should I try opening one of these?

Whirlpool dishwasher part #3385181. Machine had gone thru wash cycle and was starting to dry. Smelled electrical burning smell, opened washer door and washer was filled with smoke. Turned everything off, cleared smoke, and the washer water dispenser is very hard to turn. Washer has symptoms of burnt up motor that turns water dispenser. Machine is 12 years old. With cost of replacement motor and possible part (pump?) that might have clogged and caused motor freeze up, is it worth fixing or junk

I have a whirlpool dishwasher type 280-2 and the detergent door will not open automatically anymore. The compartment is thoroughly cleaned and wont even open if its empty so gook or over filling is not the problem. I believe I probably knocked off some part that makes it open at the proper time. If someone could explain how the process works and/or submits a picture of the parts, I could perhaps deduce what is missing. Thank you in advance as this is driving me nuts!

Dishwasher (Whirlpool Model DU930PWQ0) won't pump out. Problem occurred after door was opened during a cycle. Then the pump-out function ceased to work. Washer fills and pumps correctly during the wash cycle. Any suggestions? My guess is that the electronic control may be faulty and it is not opening the solenoid valve for the drain cycle. The other option I have thought of is that the solenoid valve may be faulty and is not responding to the signal from the controller. The dishwasher is n

I have a Whirlpool DUL300XTLQ3 Queit Partner III. The cleaning blades stopped moving-started it-waited awhile-opened it-the blades were in the same position. Took the bottom blade+filter cover off. Then I held down the metal piece on the case and switched on the micro switch on the door to see it running with the door open. The water shot straight up about 4-5" that's it. This does not seem to be enough pressure for the water to get all the way up to the top spinner. Am I looking at a new pump

Detergent dispenser door Whirlpool DU7400 won't open. I tested 300109 ACTUATOR resistance and it is closed. I ran washer and saw the actuator receives a current several times during the complete wash cycle. How else can I test? I notice the lever on the Acutator is quite floppy. Should it be stiff? Also the dispenser door does pop open if pushed from behind so that seems OK? Does anyone have the actual testing procedure for this problem? Thanks for anyone's help!

After dishwasher was started, and water stared to enter the machine, it was unlatched and left with the lever in the open position for some time.

I have a Frigidaire dishwasher, FDB-1100RHC, that is not cleaning dishes. My fiance cleaned the trap at the bottom of the washer, removing both the small basket and the larger mesh grid. After replacing both, the washer doesn't seem to have enough water pressure to spin the lower and/or upper arms. If I interrupt a cycle and open the door, water is dribbling out of the upper arms, but they are not rotating and do not move from whatever position you place them in. Both arms are completely uno

I have a Whirlpool ADG937 dishwasher (9 years old) which will not complete a 65c wash cycle. It starts Ok and runs for a long time but then continually bleeps, when I open the door the programme indicator light is on the rinse cycle. If I reset the programme to 65c it may do the same or occasionally it will finish the cycle. I have tried salt top-up, descaling and filter cleaning all to no avail. Is the programmer faulty (can I bypass it?)or should I replace the washer?
