I have a Whirlpool Washer, the last laundry cycle the washer did not spin, and when I started the cycle over the motor moved like it wanted to start, but didn't . Thanks!!
Answer Avioneta, The actuator / shifter assembly W10006355 is the most likely issue with the washer, and the best place to start. This device determines if the motor will run, and in which part of the cycle to perform (wash or spin) by shifting the "splutch' and activating the agitate shaft or the spin shaft in the gear case.
Maytag washer stops mid cycle. Shows basket speed sensor and motor unable to reach target speed faults. Lid lock is new and ohms out OK.
Answer Hello C.J.,
This unit needs to be put into the automatic test mode. This will pull the fault codes and give you an idea of where to start. This procedure is laid out in the tech sheet located in a re-sealable plastic bag glued to the inside of the front panel. Let us know if further assistance is needed.
Easy way to replace and install Actuator W10006355 Thanks John
Answer John, If room allows, the easiest way is to remove power to the washer, turn off the water supply, and move the washer out as far as possible, then lean it back against the wall, and have someone watch the machine or block up the front so you can work on it from underneath. disconnect the wire harness from the shifter assembly. Remove the two(2) mounting screws(flat blade screw driver). remove the arm from the shifter lever and drop the assembly from the transmission case. Reverse the procedure and test the washer for operation.
