Be sure you are using the EXACT replacement part. The wiring may be different if it is a "close" match.

Whirlpool washer door will not unlock


Most likely the 'interlock' which prevents the door from opening during wash has failed. This is an electrical component and probably needs to be replaced...Not a big job for a tech...Good luck...Nomess

No spin - agitate


Hi,

You just do this

  • Test the lid switch
  • Inspect the motor coupler
  • Inspect the drover belt (belt drive only)
  • Inspect under the washer for soot (clutch)
  • Test the motor
  • Inspect the pulley
  • Test the transmission
  • Inspect the Agitator
  • Inspect the pump coupling
  • Test the Water switch level
Good luck !!!

Need to find an Eaton timer for a GE washing machine ( 20 yrs old) Eaton part number 114-317-20 1/3 rpm, 115 vac. thanks Bob Westerdale PS- not sure of the model number on the washer. label is missing.


What is the GE part number it ? What is exactly the problem with the timer? Is i the AC timer motor or is it the contacts? You may be able to disassemble the timer & repair it.
Ebay is also a source for older parts.

Washer won't wash


Hi!
When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:
It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.
It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.
Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
