I have a whirlpool front load washer model number wfw9050xw03.
I replaced the pump, but when it goes to drain cycle, it stops and just starts beeping.

I have a Whirlpool washer.
It comes on then when it is time to wash clothes, it won’t want to wash them as it is filled up with water.

I have a 5 yr old Whirlpool front loader model #wfw9050xwoo and it fills up, then on the wash cycle it starts beeping and says add garment. I called whirlpool and I can’t afford to have a technician to come and I hope its fixable at a low cost.

I don’t know what my error code is but the washer model is wfw905oxwoo and once it fills and starts to wash it starts beeping and tells me to add garment. I unplugged it for 3 minutes and it still does it. It is a Whirlpool.

Whirlpool wfw9050xw03 door lock and as soon as you press start it hums but nothing else happens. It stopped working half way on a big load? What can I do?


7 DIY Project Help Tips May 9, 2016 at 3:57 pm

It may be the door lock is malfunctioning or the motor or drive is broken or damaged.
Is it possible you overloaded the washer?
Any error codes or flashing lights?
