Whirlpool he top load md# wtw4950xw0
« on: July 18, 2012, 04:42:43 PM »
This washer locks but that's all. I hear the control board sequencing, but no power to inlet valve. Will not drain or spin. Only locks. I read on a forum that the cycle switch could be the problem. Just wondering if anyone has run into this problem. Could use a tech sheet or manual. Thanks.

Tech sheet is 48 page, 4.5MB so it's to large to attach here.
Will send it to you shortly when I get back home.
Hope you find our website helpful.

Harold I have one in the back yard lid is locked the green light is illuminated on the control so it is getting power. I cannot get it to do nothing and that is after installing a $45 lid switch.

That would be awesome  O0
Robert goes out to the handicapped group homes and fixes the appliances for those less fortunate folks. His wife just died and they buried her in the Catholic cemetery on stone street last Saturday. It might cheer him up if we could find out what the problema is.

When you put machine into diagnostics  are there any fault codes logged ?

None of the idiot lights work on my machine except for the small green one on the back of the control. The lid is locked. Holding down on the button for 3 seconds or more does nothing.

I had one doing the same thing. There was junk in the drain pump, jamming it. Pump would be energized, trying to drain, whenever the washer was plugged in. Cleaned out the pump & all was working again. Just tip it back & see if the pump is "humming".
