Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
If the dryer seems to be getting hot and otherwise working (just not spinning), try this test -
With the door open, try rotating the drum by hand.
If it spins easily, and you cannot hear any connection to the drive motor, then it is very likely just the drive belt that needs replacing.
Order a spare for your specific model, and a reasonably competent DIY'er should be able to fit it.
If you are unlucky, and the motor is spinning - just not working, then replace the brushes on the motor as a first atempt at a fix. These are available online, but you will need to quote model numbers.
Again, a competent DIY fix.
If the motor is OK (after testing), then the control board may have a defective (burnt) component that needs replacement - usually by swapping the board with a good one. This repair is for experienced technicians or skilled trades.
Thank you for using Fixya.
