The washer will fill and then does nothing. I replaced the lid switch and this did not fix the problem.No matter wher you turn the control, no noise, no reaction, nothing happens. Any suggestions?
Answer Hello Charles,
You will want to make sure that the hinge is not loose or bent causing it to not fully make contact with lid switch. If the hinge is out of place and not making contact then this would be the cause of unit not operating. If the hinge is seating into the switch but still not running then the timer would be at fault.
My washer is only taking water and does nothing else. What the problem can be? I'm thinking the timer, already checked the lid switch and is good. Thanks, Willy
Answer Hello Willy,
The lid switch 8318084 has most likely failed. If it checks good electrically, this style has had some issues mechanically. If the plastic "loop" is broken, the switch won't "make" when the lid is down. Also, if the screws are loose in the hinges, it will adversely affect the strike. The timer will not be the issue since it would prevent the unit from filling with water. The only other component that would affect the units' running capability without stopping the water fill is the pressure switch W10231403.
This is a Whirlpool Estate Washer. When you pull out the on switch to start it nothing happens. It won't start and the lid is closed. What could be wrong with it?
Answer Hello Danny. You need to test for power to the water valve. If there is no power there, either the pressure switch or the control board is bad and will need to be replaced. If there is power there, you may have no water coming to the unit or the screens in the hoses may be clogged.
Tried by passing the lid switch, and it still does it. Do you think it could be the timer?
Answer Hello Spray. Yes, if the lid switch is good, and the unit stops, and can be restarted by the lid, replace the timer W10199989. Hope this helps.
