Question about Whirlpool GSC9455 Top Load Washer
Washer works well up to spin cycle - then nothing, no noise, nothing. Reset or start again - same thing. The coupling has been replaced with no result and I am wondering if there is a solenoid which could be responsible?
Thanks in advance
The problem is usually caused by a lid switch malfunction. If the coupler was bad, the washer would still fill and drain, but would not agitate or spin. The symptoms you describe are typical of a lid problem. The lid switch is usually located on the right hand side under the cabinet. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the right side of the wash tub opening. Make sure the lid strike is still on the lid and intact, first. Then, check the mounting screws that hold the lid switch in place (two screws along the tub rim on the right hand side). Often all that is required is to tighten up the mounting screws and this will realign the lid switch where it can be properly activated by the lid strike. If the lid switch is broken, you can find a replacement at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and look under the "Top and Cabinet" heading. If you do not wish to order online, take the part numbers provided by Sears and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. These are common parts that most will carry in their store inventory. The following link explains how to replace the switch:
This is a very inexpensive repair that you can easily accomplish on your own. I hope you find this information helpful. If you require additional assistance, please let me know.
