What does F4 on the display mean?

If "F4" through "F16" appears on the display, there is an electrical problem with the washer. Press the "Pause/Cancel" button twice to stop the washer and press the "Drain/Spin" button to drain any excess water in the machine. Select the cycle again and press and hold "Hold to Start" to restart the washer. This should clear the error and return the washer to normal operation.
If any of the error codes persist, the problem with the washer may be serious. Contact a qualified service technician to repair the washer.

My Whirlpool Cabrio WTW5500 stays on wash cycle and will not advance

I think it could be your main board, but first open it up and check the many connectors to ensure that are seated correctly.

Maybe check and make sure that the door switch is working properly I know most washers will stop spinning if you open the door during the cycle, so that goes to say that if the switch is bad it will not start to spin as it thinks the door is open.

My whirlpool gold model gsx9885jq0 will not spin.

I was amazed at the excellent utube video on washing machine repair, I expect you will find your solution there. For your encouragement, it's not likely to be the timer.

Washer won't start to agitate or drain the water

this could be caused by a bad motor. 
  • but i would first check the wire harness that goes to the motor and make sure it has not worked loose. 
  • you should be able to see it from under the machine.

  • if you already checked this and think it is a different problem then let me know, i will help you figure it out.

The F4 error code on your washer indicates a problem in the electrical circuits of the washer... and not end-user repairable.
This problem requires a technician to test the wiring circuits to diagnose the problem.
