A bad timer assembly could be the cause why the washer is not doing anything in any of the selected cycles.
In order for your Whirlpool made direct drive washer to be able to work, electricity needs to travel from the wall outlet through the power line to the timer.
So the first thing that you need to check and make sure that is ok is the electricity in the wall outlet.
To check the electricity in the wall outlet you could use a multimeter or voltage checker tool, but the easier way to do that is by connecting a hair dryer that you know for a fact that is in good working order.
If the hair dryer works properly that tells you that the voltage at the wall outlet is good and that the problem is in the washer.
Calling a repair company to check and repair the washer could be very expensive. Let me show you about how much could be the cost of replacing the timer in your washer.
You will have to pay a service call to come to your house and check the washer and that could be from $70 to $100.
If the problem is a bad timer assembly the cost for a replacement could be about $150.
Then you have to pay for the labor to replace it and that could from $60 to $90 an hour with a minimum of 1 hour.
Plus you have to wait in your house until the repairman could get there to do the repair.
The total cost could be about $250 to $300 for a repair that you could very easy do it yourself for just $150 the price of the part.
