Appliance: Whirlpool Automatic Washer WTW4950XW3 My Repair & Advice

The Lid light would blink and the washer seemed to loss power, until it would stop. I replaced the Lid Latch and recalibrated the machine. This was not the problem. Thinking the main control panel was out, I changed it , and recalibrated the washer. This was not the problem and the washer did exactly as before. I also took the pump apart to see if it may be the problem. (nope) After much money ($200) and research and with the help of fix-ya site, I thought I would give it one more try. I purchased the actuator ($43)and replaced it " easiest of all other replacements" Re calibrated the washer. I'VE WASHED 7 LOADS WITHOUT A PROBLEM! Thanks AppliancepartsPros.com , Your site was excellent!
