Washer will not do anything. There is power going to the unit. Push start button but it beeps and then nothing.
Answer Hello Lee,
You should first check the lid switch WH12X10334. If it doesn't make electrical connection, the machine will not operate.
My washing machine does not agitate or spin. I am lead to believe that the problem may be with the belt, lid switch, or the motor. The belt appears to be in good shape. Which leaves the lid switch and the motor. How can I Ohm the lid switch and/or how do can I initiate the cycle in which I can read the Motot Inverter board status?
There is not a cycle to initiate the motor inverter board status. The inverter board will be flashing a code if it is bad. If it is one second on one second off then it is in normal standby. This information is also located on the tech sheet. When running it will be 1/2 second on 1/2 second off normal running. If it is anything other than these you would need to refer to the tech sheet on what to check. If it is normal then the lid switch would be the issue or if there is no light on the inverter board then check the inline fuse which is on the right side front corner in the wiring harness.
Can the lid switch be temporally bypassed?
Answer Hello Tim,
There should be no problem with bypassing the lid switch for testing purposes only as long as you remove the bypass jumper before putting the unit back into operation. You should be able to do this at the connector in the control panel. It will be a white plastic Molex connector with a red and an orange wire in it. Unplug the connector and jump the connector on the side that doesn't lead to the switch.
The agitaor does not work. all other functions work fine.
Answer Hello Jerome. It sounds like the coupler WH49X10042 is bad and will need to be replaced in the unit.
My washer works fine, but it is not taking the water ouf of the clothes. The cycle end and my clothes are still soaked. What could be wrong with the washer, since it is working and the only thing is not doing is not draining the water and the clothes stay really wet.
Answer Luis, It sounds more like the washer is not spinning. If the washer was not draining, the tub would be full of water. You'll need to remove the front panel, and start the washer, in the spin cycle, and observe to see if the motor and belt turn and the tub spins, If not Make sure the washer lid and magnet are properly mounted and secured to the washer lid and top assembly. and test the lid switch circuit WH12X10334 or replace it. We'll send you some additional information that will be helpful for you to check and test the control board and motor.
