Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
The machine you have does give problems with the module and they can be expensive to replace. It might not be the module however. your machine does a self test diagnostic upon startup, it checks every component and if it detects a faulty part, the result is that it just clicks around back to the stop position. this is not a repair that you would be able to carry out yourself unfortunatly. most commonly however, the brushes may need to be replaced, this you could do yourself though. UNPLUG the machine from the wall, put the machine on its side(soapbox side on the floor IMPORTANT) and remove the carbons(brushes) from the motor, if they are worn, they will be very short in length and the surface of either one or both will have a burned black mark, they should be shiny, this is the part that makes contact with the motor.
replacing these, if they are worn, will solve your problem, but if they are not the case, you will need to call out an engineer im afraid.
