VMW Whirlpool washer no spin model WTW4800XQ1
« on: August 08, 2014, 06:58:40 PM »
Subject washer will lock the door, attempt to spin, then drop out and unlock door. Could it be a bad shift actuator?
 Didn't check diagnostics, didn't know how.

It could be bad shifter. Also could be bad upper bearing in transmission , or broken wire to motor

Here is a video how to put it in a diagnostic mode.

Thanks for the response. It really never tries to spin, just never makes a noise at all. Will need to verify voltage to the shifter and do the diagnostics.

Checked out the washer. Seems like a real junker, refuses to go into diagnostics, sometimes it will fill up and agitate with repeated cycle changing and unplugging.
 When it spins, it's noisey and most of the time it will struggle to start spin, draws between 3 and 6 amps, then drops out. Customer decided to junk unit.

Junking probably a good move. Worse machine on the market hands down!

I had one that was under contract a few months back.  It did the same thing. At whirlpools direction, I replaced the main control, then the lid switch, then the motor capacitor, drain pump then finally the wire harness. I still don't know if the wire harness was the problem or something else.  The customer was beyond mad by the end.  Nothing I could do.  Service contract company refused to replace it.

And I ohm'd out that harness the or for times. What a piece of junk.  I'm glad I don't work on those anymore (for work).
