The first thing that you need to check is to see if there is electricity in the wall outlet that the washer is connected to.
Cabinet Removing: The next thing that you need to learn is how to remove the cabinet from the washer frame. It is important to learn how to do this because you will need to remove the cabinet when you need to check the internal parts in the washer.
Lid or door switch: Next you need to check lid or door switch to make sure that the switch is closing the contacts when the door is closed. This switch is a safety device used to stop the motor from running if the door of the washer is opened during any of the cycles on the newer washers.
On the older washers the lid or door switch was only use to stop the motor from running when the washer was on the drain and spin cycles.
Power cord: Next you will need to check the Power cord. The power cord is the lifeline of the washer. Disconnect the cord and inspect the terminals on the cord plug to make sure that they are not burned.
Timer push/pull switch: Next you will need to check the timer push/pull switch. This switch is turned of when you push the timer knob in and turn on when you pull the knob out. It controls everything in the washer.
A bad timer push/pull switch could be the cause of a not starting Whirlpool washer.
You will need to make sure to watch the videos a few times until you know how to fix a not starting Whirlpool washer. Never assume that a part is bad without checking it and make sure it is bad before replacing it.
Another thing that you need to do is to learn how to check, remove and install the parts before starting to buy replacement parts.
Make sure that the company that you buy parts from give you a good return guarantee in case that you may need to return any parts.
WE recommend Repair Clinic for their 365 days return guarantee
Also take the purchase slip and the old part and put them in the box of the new part so in case you need to return any parts you will know where the box and the slip are.
