Question about Whirlpool WFW8300SW
Just installed the pedestal on this (previously) fully operational washer yesterday. Raised the washer to the full upright position and plugged in the operational power receptacle. The control panel activated to the normal cycle of 54 minutes, but there was a repeated clicking sound inside the washer. I unplugged it, repeated the step and the clicking finally faded away. End result was no power to the control panel, no previous error codes, nor a way to troubleshoot without power to the panel. The service manual (Step 1) denotes "no click, then replace the CCU" (actually named the microcomputer machine control as validated by calling Whirlpool today.
Is there any other thing I should check (still with no power as I look for the suspect CCU replacement part?
In advance, many thanks for your expertise and feedback.
It appears your timer/main controller/CCU 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
