Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer
My washer is not a calypso but is a top loader. I think my Whirlpool (model lsr8433kq0) was made in 2001 (when I bought it). The original timer went bad, got a new one, installed it and I can't get it to start @ the drain-spin cycle (is full of water). I can only start it at the begining of each full cycle, it shakes but when it comes time to drain it doesn't. I checked and re checked part number and it checks ok (I got it from repair clinic.com). Help is needed big time, can afford to go another weekend without it.
Many thanks in advance for the help.
More often than not the lid switch housing has seperated, not allowing the switch to operate properly. In a pinch9or until the new part arrives) you can "snap" the housing back together and place a zip tie around the housing to keep it from seperating again. This is not a permanent sollution, but it dies work. and my wife is still doing the laundry. I fix she washes.
