Whirpool Awt 2261 Top Loader Not Taking Detergent Down

Recommended Posts


I have a top loader waching machine, a Whirpool AWT 2261.

The engine and vat bearings broked and I've decided to change them. After reassembling the machine, the machine gone rong. The clothes are not washed and rinsed enough, and I don't know why...

at the first wash, the detergent was not properly cleaned from the tray...

If you could help with any advice...

I have a update...

The motor it's not spinning. It's a C.E. SET. MCA 30/64-148/ALA1. The motor windings lead curent, but I didn't find any information on the internet about this motor. I wan't to start him directly to the outlet (220V), but I don't know wich pins have to be puted at current. When I puted my hands on washer body with or without motor, I was electrocuted... so it's seems that the washer ground it's having a problem...

Please help me with any information...

To be honest I think you should get an engineer to look at this machine. It's worrying that you received an electric shock and hard to advise as the information is too vague - I get electric shocks from the washing machine
