Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

1 Answer

Whirlpool washer LSR7233EQ0 will fill, but will not agitate or drain.

Last load small filled and started washing. Stopped at some point. When I discovered it, I turned dial around to different settings. No activity. Changed load size to Medium and restarted cycle. Filled to medium load fine, would not agitate. Heard faint humming sound after a few seconds and shut it down. Tested lid switch issue by bypassing it. Ran as it should. Tested w/ switch active. To my surprise, it ran as it should. No clue why it stopped, or why it wouldn't agitate or spin a few minutes ago. I am comfortable fixing most things. Need help diagnosing the issue. Your assistance will be appreciated.

SOURCE: Whirlpool filling and washing, not draining, rinsing or spinning

Check out your outlet filter, probable it is clogged. Clean this out and refit. Most cases when the drain or spin does not work, it is the filter. This is a suggestion.

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite Washer Problem

This is a common symptom of a defective lid switch. If you try opening and closing the lid and do not hear a distinctive "clicking" sound, your lid switch may need to be replaced. Some lid switches are located on the right-hand side of the lid opening with a small slot. It is activated by a plastic piece called a “lid strike” on the lid itself. Make sure the lid strike is not broken off. This will keep the switch from not working. On some model washers the lid switch is located on the left-hand side, in the rear, mounted under the casing near the lid hinge. It is activated by a rod on the lid hinge. Sometimes the rod can be adjusted if it is not making good contact with the switch. In either case, if the switch is not activated, it will allow the washer to fill and maybe agitate, but will not start the rinse or drain cycles. If you diagnose it and wish to attempt the repair yourself, the switch costs about $35 and is fairly simple to replace if you follow the steps below:

First of all, unplug your washer. You will need to remove the console in order to get to the lid switch. I believe your washer has release tabs under the console at each front corner. Simply slide a putty knife straight in from the front at each corner and push in while lifting up. You should feel the release tabs push in and the console will pop up. Or, you may have a console that has removable end caps. They can be removed by gently prying up on the top of them from the rear on each side. You may have to use a small screwdriver for this. The caps should pop right off. Once removed, you will need to loosen a screw under each cap. Once you have the console loosened, carefully lift it up and lay it back over the rear panel of the washer in its resting position. Be careful not to damage the small plastic hinges that hold it in place.


Now you will need to perform the following steps:

1. Under the console you will find the lid switch connector. Unplug the switch from the connector.

2. There will be two brass colored clips. You will need to remove these to remove the machine casing. Place a flat blade screwdriver straight down into the opening on top of the washer and into the groove of the clip. Push the screwdriver away from you while holding into the groove and the clip will release.

3. Open the lid of the washer and place your hand under the front rim of the opening (DO NOT grab the wash tub). Now pull the case from the frame by lifting from the back first.

You do not have to remove it all the way from the frame. Just enough to gain access to the switch. All there is to the switch is a couple of screws holding it in and a ground wire. It's a pretty easy repair job. NOTE: You DO NOT have to drain the tub to repair the lid switch.

Once you've completed your switch installation, make sure you get the case back on the frame correctly by following these steps:

1. While looking down through the lid opening, place the front lip of the machine case UNDER the washer frame and start leaning it back onto the frame. There are four small cleats that must fit into four slots on the case or the washer will vibrate. Make sure the frame is seated properly, lean forward from the front of the washer, grasp both sides of the rear panel and pull towards the case. The rear panel should be seated and flush with the casing before inserting the retaining clips.

2. Insert the brass-colored clips into the slot on the washer rear panel first, then push straight down into the opening on the top of the washer with some force. If you have the case seated correctly, the clips will snap back in.

3. Make sure you plug the connector from the console back into the lid switch receptacle and close the console.

I hope you find this helpful. If you have any questions or need help locating the correct part, please let me know by posting comments.

SOURCE: Washer continuously fills but drains at the same time during rinse cycle.

you have the drain pipe too low into tthe house drain pipe, raise the washers drain pipe up , you only need four inches down into the hous drain

also the house drain pipe needs to be as high as the lid of the machine before you put the washer drain tube into the house drain

you have a syphoning effect

It sound like you drain hose is siphoning off the rinse water, It needs a standpipe make sure the drain hose is at about the height of the top of the washer, Make sure the drain hose isnt stuck in the drain it also needs an air cap. the drain hose should not lay on the floor to run to the drain

Please let me know if this doesnt solve your problems

Possible that the water level sensor has failed.Shut down washer and trace the sensor which is a pressure activated switch from the drum overflow. the switch can be activated by blowing and checking continuity. if so replace the unit

Look around at outlets that are close by and make sure you didn't trip one of your GFCI breakers or plug in something to the same outlet and make sure you have power at the outlet where the washer is plugged into.

My washing machine Whirlpool AWM049 has just developed a fault. Whatever program it is set to the dial turns, then when the dial reaches the position where it is supposed to fill with water it just stops....


I have the same problem. The dial does not start on the setting you set it to. It just clicks around then stops. I called out an engineer who said he thinks it is the control panel panel board. Didn't know if he could get the part which would be expensive. I was hoping someone would have the answer.

I have a 15 yr old Whirlpool washer that has run great. During a cycle, it stopped full of water. I moved the dial around to different areas pushing it in and out and got a cyle to run long enough to pump...


Not always a Timer issue. could be stopping at the cold fill part of the cycle which is the 8 o clock position on the dial. This would be fault with the cold fill vavle.

Washer stopped filling. power still on. turning dial to different positions has no effect.


water level sensor not working or load size selector switch failed. could also be a failed water inlet solenoid valve. Turn it to cold wash and see if water fills again, if not turn it to hot wash and see if it fills again.

We've now had this happen three times and the exact same thing caused it all three times.

If the water level selector knob hasn't "clicked" into one of the given load levels on the control panel(i.e. the knob is in between levels) it will continue to fill until you discover water everywhere and turn the knob until it "clicks" into a level.

As far as I know, it has nothing to do with loose hoses or bad switches, it's bad design. There seems to be no safety mechanism to turn off the water if you over- or under-shoot the desired water level.

My top loading whirlpool washer stopped after filling. Cycle dial does not engage any agitating, spinning,rinsing, nor draining activity. The dial does not advance with time, neither. Checked the outlet...


You could have a bad lid switch or a bad water level switch or a bad timer. In that order.
Open the control panel to access the components listed.
Make a small wire jumper and jump out the lid switch. Turn the timer on and see if it works. If yes, replace the lid switch.
If no, check power from the water level switch to the timer.
Terminals V to T should read closed on a meter set for ohms.
If the water level switch is closed the timer is bad.

Washer stopped after wash cycle


The lid switch is the culprit. Push down on the lid it should start. It needs to be adjusted . the tab on the lid is not activating the switch. Try triming the door bumpers.

Washer stops, won't fill, rinse or agitate


Check the lid switch. When you open and close the lid, you should hear a click. If you don't, then it's probably bad. You can test it for continuity with a multimeter. When the switch is activated, you should get a meter reading; if you don't it needs to be replaced.

Here is a picture of the switch assembly.
