There was a faulty sensor, which controls the water level.

Repair hydraulic sensor or replace any pressure switch.

broken or valve is locked waters of the bay.

replace any defective parts of the Gulf valve.

controller work was disrupted.

Check controller resolder burned parts of his board, and if that is not possible, replace the new one.


problem with motor

engine is not included due to the burnout of the triac control board.

Examine the control board and replace parts that are burned.

The engine module faulty temperature sensor.

Replace the thermal sensor, and if it can not be repaired, install a new control unit.If this does not work, he would have to replace the motor.


communication problem

The mains voltage is below the desired level.

Refine stress and take steps to restore normal power settings apartments.

F12 ​​

problem heating water

water is no longer heated due to the failure of the heating element or a pressure switch failure.

replace any defective heating element or a pressure switch.

The wires connecting the heater and controller, came open.

checking circuit wires connecting the controller and the heater, remove the detected defects, as well as seal the terminals.

disrupt water heating relay (stuck there).

If the survey confirms the problem in heat relay, it should be replaced.

faulty sensor.

After verifying temperature sensor damage, and repair the control board, replacing her thermistor.


problem with water Gulf

water is not poured into the tank due to insufficient high pressure in the water.

Check the water pressure in the water.

container to load detergent clogged.

Perform tank cleaning detergent.

Water typed too slowly due to clogging of the mesh filter in the filler device.

Clean the mesh filter in the valve of the Gulf.


problem with management

fee management system began to work correctly.

An error has occurred in the microprocessor.

Perform re-flash the controller or completely replace the machine control unit.


problem with motor

appeared triac fault on the controller board.

Check triac operation and malfunction, do the replacement of the part.

engine wear brush.

Replace brushes or replace any of all of the motor.

faulty mechanical part of the tachometer.

Repair the tachometer by setting the spring washer into place.Sometimes it is necessary to replace the tacho new part.

There was a break in the wires connecting the motor to the controller.

rang wires and follow the replacement of wiring areas where identified problems.

elektrokontroller defective.

Repair charge controller or completely change the controller of a new piece.


problem with the control system

Frequent faults

Statistics machines from Whirlpool fault shows that the most frequently encountered such problems:

  • clog up the drain path.
  • wear out and break down the pump.
  • failure of the electronic control board.Most often burn control triacs or worn mechanical sequencer.
  • failure of the heater or thermostat.
  • tank starts leaking seal, connections or cuff.
  • motor brushes wear out.
  • CUT belt.
  • burn engine contacts.
  • wears bearings or dampers.
  • The machine gets a foreign object.

To replace the drum flange bearings in a washing machine Whirlpool See the video V. Khatuntseva.

Tips and prevention of damage

  • For external cleaning of the cabinet and control panel, use a slightly damp soft cloth.If it becomes necessary, the case can be cleaned with a neutral household tool, which is free of abrasive particles.
