I have a Whirlpool washer less than 5 yrs old that has taken to stalling
in the middle of the wash cycle.
I hired a trusted (retired) Whirlpool technician to come out and take a
look, and he seems convinced it's not the timer, but wasn't really
forthcoming as to why he felt that way.
He took a long look, squirted a little WD-40 into it, and put it back,
saying it would probably solve the problem.
What compounds the issue is that the washer will occasionally (rarely)
cycle through; most of the time, however, it hangs up. As an example,
my wife started a load before bedtime the other night and found the
machine in spin mode in the morning...with some of the clothing
Question: anyone seen something like this in a Whirlpool? Does it sound
like a timer issue? If so, I'm more than willing to replace it...but at
$100.00 a pop I'd like to have a reasonable sense that it will solve
If not the timer...what is it?
