Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
All other functions, including agitate and drain, are fine. At first I thought it was a belt, but this model is direct drive. A technician mentioned a solenoid, but none of the breakout drawings I've seen shows any solenoids. There was a very faint smell of overheated electrical (motor, probably) when the drum should have been spinning. Of course, I had depressed the lid safety switch.
Might be time for a new washer if this is complicated; this one worked perfectly until its 21st birthday last month. Hmmm.
I never posted a problem about a Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P. My model is LA6800XSNO, a completely different product that is 21 years old..
The service manual I purchased with the washer is completely wrong as well - the manual is for a belt drive model and this washer is a direct-drive model. Thanks, retailer; wish I could remember who you are.
There is supposed to be a solenoid, or as Whirlpool calls it a "control magnet" for the spin cycle. This part is not shown in any online parts breakdown online. The part is probably not available.
Here's how I solved the problem: I tossed the Whirlpool washing machine out the side door and sent my wife off to find a new one. It won't be a front-loading Whirlpool, because I don't need my clothes stinking of mold. I'd like to save water and electricity, but not at the cost of spending over $1,000 for a machine that doesn't do its basic job.
It won't be a Maytag because Maytag is very proud of not offering service manuals. As much as I hate GE (because of their **** refrigerators with always fail compressors and never-work icemakers) we'll probably end up with another top loader, maybe a GE.
HERE'S THE SOLUTION: POLLUTE THE LANDFILL WITH ANOTHER JUNK APPLIANCE THAT CAN'T BE REPAIRED.
