whirlpol duet washer
« on: April 24, 2009, 08:31:22 AM »
My washer won't start. There is no error code. All seems ok ie the start button clicks like it is going to start, the dial turns to different functions and the time of cycle changes, just won't start. I changed the computer circuit board and still nothing has changed?!? Especially with no error code, I can't figure this out.

Check the door lock assembly especially the little pin at the top if it is broken off this is usually the problem.

I couldn't find the pin. I couldn't find anything wrong. I believe you are right about the door lock.  It locked itself twice and I had to manually unlock it. I don't know how to reset it.

Over the door latch itself there is a small circle with a button in the middle that you can push in. Sometimes this button breaks off.

I believe Mr. Fix-it is talking about this part.

This part would be installed from the inside right? I wasn't able to get the side panel off, only the top and front bottom. Can I replace it like that? Is this easy enough for me to do myself?

It's easy to replace. :)

Open the door and remove the rubber boot on the same side the door switch is located.

If you look close at the rubber boot you will see it's held in place with a metal band and spring.

Just pop the band off and peel back the rubber boot just far enough next to the door switch for you to get in there and replace the switch.

The switch is help in place with three screws from the front.

Maybe Mr. Fix-It has something to add, but that is how I replace them.
