Whirlpool Washer fills but will not wash
« on: March 20, 2008, 08:18:56 AM »

Hi
my washer will fill but does not begin washing, it makes a humming noise, the other day i was mad at it and kicked it and then it started, last night, we were pulling it out we checked it and it started, what could be wrong or loose,seems we may have something that is not connecting properly, please help.
Thanks

it may be a bad motor start switch or a bad connector, try tapping on the start switch with a broom handle.
