Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
When we turned the power on it was powered up, but wouldn't start. We held the button to no avail. We unplugged and plugged it back in and now it win't even power up. There is power going because it beeps when you push the power button.
No beeps or power

First Thing: Check all connections and clean contacts! I had a water line burst - got water all up inside on the wiring and control boards. Got an F70 error, then when I unplugged and plugged back in, control panel went black and got nothing but 3 quick beeps when I pushed the power button. After I figured out that water had gotten inside, I pulled the top off - three screws on back - got everything good and dry, but problem persisted. Unplugged and pulled each connector one-by-one, cleaning with a toothbrush and a fat rubber band. Everything works fine now. Humidity and other laundry room environmental issues can cause the same problem.
If cleaning the upper connections doesn't resolve the problem, pull the 3 screws on the bottom front and take that panel off. Clean and reseat all of the connections for the Motor Control Unit and on the motor.
Had cleaning and reseating not resolved my problem, my next step would have been to remove the control boards for a more thorough cleaning (scrubbing contacts with a pencil eraser) and inspection. If you're handy with a multi-meter, you can do continuity checks, but those tests will often lie to you by the probes getting better contacts than the plug connectors.
Hope that helps.

We need to know if it beeps 3 times or not, to give you good info.
