Most of the time a Whirlpool direct drive top load washer can be repaired with one of these common parts.

Water Drain Pumps: If your washer will not drain the water out and you can hear the motor running during the drain cycle you may need a new water pump. Check the pump and drain hose for restrictions before replacing the water pump.

Hot & Cold Water Inlet Valve: If your washer does not fill with water during the wash or rinse cycle you may need a new water valve. Did you know your washer has to fill with water before it will advance through the rinse cycle? Check to make sure the screens inside the water valve don't just need to be cleaned before replacing the water valve.

Drive Block: If the drive block is stripped out your washer may act like it has a bad clutch because it will not spin very good. The drive block is located under the agitator. To check the drive block simply remove the agitator and put the washer into the spin cycle with the lid open. Watch the top of the drive block to see if it's slipping inside were the spin tube is attached to it. If it's been slipping you maybe able to see metal fillings around the top of the drive block.

Lid Switch's: If your lid switch is bad the main motor will not run during the spin cycle so your washer will not spin. I remember back when Whirlpool only made one lid switch. Why do we need so many different types now Whirlpool?

Basket Drive & Brake Assembly

There are often only two reason you would ever need to replace the Basket Drive & Brake assembly.

The first reason would be if the Drive Block we talked about above was stripped out. There are two tabs on top of the Basket Drive Shaft that couple with two slots in the Drive block. Sometimes these two tabs will get rounds over and not couple up very good with the new drive block, so you would have to then replace the Basket Drive & Brake Assembly when replacing the Drive Block.

The second reason you may need to replace the Basket Drive & Brake Assembly would be if the washer is stopping so hard at the end of the spin cycle that it is slamming the tub up against the inside of the cabinet making a loud banging noise when the washer stops running.

In this case to correctly repair the washer you would replace the Basket Drive & Brake Assembly.
