Good news!!!!!!!!

Yesterday I received a phone call from the repairman asking if he could come to the house and check my washer out!!!


The good news is there was no mess under the washer when the repair person took the front off the washer!

The best news is there was a replacement part in a nearby city and I may have my washer fixed completely hopefully by Friday.. 

They are however going to use another part number, another washer like mine uses something called 9600 part and they seem to be interchangeable. 

I will ask the repairman and get all the info..

Thank you all very, very much for all your input! O0

After spending 6 hours trying to figure out how to get around/bypass the switch....I took the part out to my shop and blew compressed air into the part. Then came back in and it worked once. I disconnected the hose (black on mine) from the lower part of the washer tub and blew in it a couple of times. (rather hard) The washer has now started working like normal again. How long,.....who knows.
Also, the 9500/9600 part are exactly the same part # according to Whirlpool. Also, there was a nice little diagnostic sheet inside the washer in a little plastic bag, (taped to the sidewall) that showed all the codes and some very simple diagnostics anyone could do to troubleshoot the machine.

I know this is an old topic. But...Has anyone had any other issues other than the pressure switch? Has it ever been the steam board at fault? From what I got from the wiring diagram, there is a triac in the steam board to control the steam valve. Tested voltage leaving the board, going to the steam valve, I found an open neutral(120V to chassis ground). Why would the triac switch the neutral side???
