Re: whirlpool washer

First you need to unplug the washer and then remove the front cover below the loading door... (Should be 3 Phillips screws on the very bottom). You will want to run the diagnostic program that is found in the manual which is also located behind that front bottom cover…if you can get it to run that program….. I also had to replace the CCU (Central Control Unit) and the Filter….due to the fact that I was getting a F11 & a F14 error… If you are hearing a faint clicking sound coming from the top back (before you get the F11 or F14 error or no error coed at all) then I know for sure you need to replace the CCU and Filter... At least that’s what I had to do…I will give you the link to the site where you can buy it....If you have any type of home protection plan I would just call them and pay the service fee (mine is only $50)....its going to be a lot cheaper that way…. If you decide to buy the part or parts…the CCU and the Filter control unit and do it yourself make sure you get the model number off the CCU and Filter control unit. The top cover is just as easy to take off...the CCU will be located in the center on top and the Filter just to its right... Please make sure the washer is unplugged before you remove any covers….I hope this helps....please give me a rating either is that link to the website for those parts….it also gives you a good picture of the parts...Good Luck

The cleaning cycle wont work.

Did you tried with different load?
It could be the control panel which is not to cheap.

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.

RCA Whirlpool Model LSQ9665J will fill with water but does not agitate, spin, or drain on any cycle. Was working fine yesterday.

put the timer on spin,open the lid,with a screw driver push down on the lid switch,if the washer starts to spin and drain the lid switch is bad,also if nothing happens,lift up and push down on the switch if you don't hear a clicking sound the switch is bad,all it is is a safety so the washer won't run with the lid open.part number 3949247 and the lid switch is around 40 dollars,

The washer powers on fine, but when I select the wash cycle and press start, it beeps and nothing else happens. It will not start.

Mine is doing the same dam thing! It's new too, only a couple of months. It seems like this is a common problem from what I've read. I've lost confidence in whirlpool....

Whirlpool Duet washing machine will not start a cycle.

sounds as if its a door latch/lock issue, not recognizing the door closed will simply beep 3 times when the start button is depressed. try unplugging and replugging after 2 min.
