It appears your main controller board has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question!!!

Whirlpool washing machine style master #907675 just stop working in the middle of the wash cycle and won't start again.


Susan, First make sure there is still power to the outlet washer is pluged into, may have tripped the breaker/fuse. Could be something as simple as a loose wire/plug, lid switch to something worse like control board. Have a good Tech. diagnose and estimate repair. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

I pushed the button after the washing cycle had start for the purpose of stopping the cycle so that the clothing can soak before washing. When I returned about half an hour later, I pushed the button to...


I am taking this as a machine with a timer knob. If so, you may have to advance the timer manually to get it to go. You may have stumbled onto a slightly dead spot on the timer. I think I would just leave the lid up next time. That will stop everything and give you the soak time you so desire.

Whirlpool washing machine, lights are on but when press start button it will not start


Check your press start button for dirt, or disconnected wires. Also check the press
button for continuity when pressed using a
multitester, set at R x 1. The needle pointer
must deflect to zero when pressed. Replace the start button, and test the washing maching to start. Then put it off. Hope this will solve your problem. If not, send your e-mail to me.
