Whirlpool Washer Drainage Issue RepairBrand: Whirlpool
During a recent service call, a client reported their Whirlpool washer was having a drainage issue and requested a repair. Their washer started the cycle normally, but it sputtered and stopped abruptly halfway through, leaving the water undrained. Our technician initiated the diagnostic process, taking advantage of the convenient diagnostics options available for this model.
During the manual diagnostics process, the technician meticulously addressed the water drainage issue, directing special attention to the drain pump. To his unexpected revelation, a peculiar silence ensued during the drain pump test. Intrigued by this anomaly, the technician proceeded to extract and disassemble the pump for a more thorough examination. Much to his surprise, the inspection unveiled the presence of two metallic pins, resembling nails, firmly wedged into the plastic impeller of the pump, causing a mechanical obstruction and hindering its normal movement.
Whirlpool Washer Drainage Issue: Causes and Repair
The washing machine supplied voltage to the pump, but the obstructed impeller prevented it from rotating, hindering the water drainage process. This blockage resulted in the machine stopping mid-cycle. Notably, one of the impeller blades exhibited damage, likely caused by the repeated impact of the metallic pin during rotation.
The foreign objects causing this malfunction could have been hairpins or small nails, but their specific identity remained unclear. Regardless, our technician removed these objects, reassembled the pump, and it resumed normal operation without issues. This repair was executed swiftly, without the need for expensive replacement parts.
