If issues arise with a Whirlpool commercial washer, it is possible to perform some basic troubleshooting before calling for assistance.
Things You'll Need
- Water supply
- Power supply
- Lanudry detergent
Check to make sure the washer is properly connected to a power supply if the washer does not work. Turn the "Cycle Control" knob slightly to the right and pull it out to start the washer.
Ensure the proper load setting is selected if the washer makes clicking sounds during use. This indicates a low water level.
Avoid using more than 1 cup of laundry detergent if the washer seems excessively sudsy or leaks. Do not overfill the washer with clothes, as this may cause the washer to stop.
Choose a warmer temperature cycle if the detergent does not seem to dissolve during the wash cycle.
Ensure the top of the drain hose is higher than the water level if the water continues to fill or drain even after the cycle has completed.
Balance the distribution of clothes in the washer before use if the washer moves or makes noise while in operation.
