Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

2 Answers

My Whirlpool washing machine (approx.9 yrs old) will not go into the spin cycle regardless of what wash setting the machine is on (regular, gently cycle, etc). Any suggestions? Do you recommend having a repairman look at the machine or based on it's age & problem, go ahead & get a new one?

Based upon the age, it may be as simple as replacing the lid switch.
Open and close lid, listen for 'clicking' sound. If no 'clicking' sound, replace lid switch. Here's how:

To access it REMOVE POWER, lift the console by one of three ways.
1. Look in the back of the console, in each corner there will be a screw, unscrew until the console can be pushed forward.
2. The trim on either side can be pried off from the top, grasp and pull forward to expose to expose a screw.
3. Insert a putty knife under each corner, push to release a latch.

With console lifted:
1. You will find a lid switch connector (white in color). Unplug the switch from the connector.

2. There will be two brass colored clips. Place a flat blade screwdriver straight down into the opening on top of the washer and into the groove of the clip. Push the screwdriver down and away from you and the clip will release.

3. Open the lid of the washer and place your hand under the front rim of the opening (DO NOT grab the wash tub). Tilt and slide cabinet forward to remove.

If you need further assistance, let me know

Dear shelldon39, Fri 2-20-2009 9:24pm EST (USA)

Some machines will shut down during the spin cycle as a precaution to prevent damage!

They will do this if you overload the washer with clothes and/or use too much detergent!

If this doesn't help please get back to me with more details!

Unsrew the bottom panel and u will find the pump to the right disconnect the hose from the back thats coming down from the tub.You will find a pocket behind the hose connect filled with all kinds of change probably enough to buy a pizza and a couple of beers.

Only Gentle Cycle Works


You have a bad timer. You can take the cover off and verify. Look for burnt contacts.
