Question about Whirlpool GHW9150 Front Load Washer
I know this is such a vague issue, but my Whirlpool washer has stopped working completely and it's not even 2 years old yet. The wall socket works, and there is electricity, but I can't get my washer to turn on at all. Before calling someone here, I wanted to know if this issue is even fixable and if it's worth fixing? Or if possible, I can maybe fix it myself? Has anyone had similar problems at all?
I read that it may have to do with a 'lid switch' but what is that and how do I replace it?
Any help would greatly be appreciated!!!
The drain spin button was accidently pressed for too long, it can lock the display controls. Hold it down for 3 seconds
Thanks .... My dad locked the washer up :() This Fixed my locked out mode ... Kevin.. Glasgow, Ky

I have had this same problem. Check the ribbon of wires from the front control panel to the CCU. About half way along the ribbon where it sits in the retaining clip, one of the wires is probably broken. Mine was and all I did was to solder a splice in the ribbon and now it works fine and I have a brand new CCU that I have no use for .

I'm back! I just replaced my CCU, plugged in my washer and I heard the click and the machine started running. BUT... now that it's stopped, I can't turn it on, on the display, I now see three lines like - - - . I'm so close!!! Do you know what this means and how I can finally get this working?

Given your model number, it's not going to be a lid switch. Front load washers have door latches instead. However, even a bad door latch should not keep the unit from powering up, only starting a cycle. Do you have any lights on? If the drain spin button was accidently pressed for too long, it can lock the display controls. Hold it down for 3 seconds. Did this change anything? No? Next, unplug the unit. Remove the top of the unit by unscrewing the 3 #20 torx bit screws on the back of the lid and sliding it slightly backwards. It will the lift off. You should see 2 green connectors at the top, rear of the unit. Using a volt or multi-meter, make sure you have 120 volts AC here. If you do, Next check your connections. Make sure all of your wire connections are firmly plugged into the white box in the top, middle, rear of your unit (expecially the white wires that run towards the front of the unit on the left hand side). This is the CCU (or main circuit board) connection to the display circuit board. Plug the unit back in after it has been unplugged for at least 2 1/2 minutes (this can reset a locked up board) If these all check ok, I would suggest getting someone out. To forwarn you most of these boards price out at over a hundered dollars. While you can try swapping out one of the boards on your own to see if it fixes your problem, most companies will not let you return boards once you have purchased them.
