Question about Whirlpool LHW0050PQ Front Load Washer
Will not spin or agitate, pump works, door switch seems ok, no movement of motor, belt ok. constant on/off of both fill valves. lights on display maybe having occasional siezures.
Try this just in case it will be the same has mine
Do a visual inspection on the electronic module. To do this you need to removed it. Follow the manual instruction. I got the manual there. It's pretty big, about 44MB: https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/07e2c9ebdcf04a3085256f38004f9b84/$FILE/WPWASHER1.pdf
I had the same kind of issue on mine, no spinning and occasionally it did not want to start. I decided to remove "electronic control module" and do quick visual inspection on the board.
I find out that the board was full of little (microscopic) lead (plumb). I cleaned it with a toothbrush and ALCOHOL on both side, re-installed it and since then the machine worked find... Finally after a year I have a working machine.
I think you should test this solution before spending $400 on a new "electronic control module".
Let others know if it work on your side too.
