What kind of whirlpool do you have? is it a top loader or a frontloader. If it is a top loader is there water entering the washer? does it not agetate? Does it not Spin. If it does not wash or spin it is a possible bad lid switch close the lid. Do you hear a click? If you have no CLICK sound you have a bad lid switch.

Whirlpool duet washer won't start


Hi Danielle_347 ;
My husband is a sales manager of a large appliance store he said
he thinks this is what may wrong ; You have either one or two buttons
on the washer that says control lock (not the light - a kind you can push
in) If you can find it hold it in for 3 seconds this should do it. If not or
if you cannot find it he said please put the model # up because
different models have different solutions. I Really hope It works.
Sorry I can't do videos.

Whirlpool High Capacity washer, start cycle , it fills with water then no agitation, and no spinning.


next time send the model number,open the lid,look on the right side and there should be a hole in the top,that's the lid switch,it's used so the washer won't run if the lid is open for safety reasons,set it to spin and with a screw driver push down on the plastic piece in the hole,if nothing happens push in and release,do this a few times,if you don't hear a clicking sound when you push up and down the switch is bad or close the lid and open it an inch,close it and open it a few times,no clicking sound the switch is bad.

Push start different sound water may start may not start pause


I would check to make sure the connectors to that door lock are all connected. If they are it's probably the lock/switch mechanism itself. Wow I just checked and they are about $120. The p/n is wh10x10006 You can google around for the best price. Good luck!

Washer won't start cycle after door is closed


Try taking the top of the machine off and checking all of the electrical connections, including the one to the door lock. I have to do this about once a month with my machine and it seems to work.

Whirlpool washer overflow during wash cycle


What you can try is to get the machine empty and remove the hose that connects the pressure hose to the switch and blow air through it to make sure it is clear, then tap on the nozzle where the hose connects on the switch to make sure it is also clear.

Maytag neptune won;t rinse


Check latch mechanism for alignment. Often operation of machine loosens latch mechanism causing internal switch for "door open (or ajar)" preventing rinse or spin cycle. Opening and closing door presses latch mechanism closing internal switch allowing for continue processing to rinse or spin cycles.
