Hi Angela, you should contact Whirlpool directly and find out if that is a common complaint. If it's a manufacturing defect they should replace the defective part. Hope that helps.

Hi Paul, first piece of advice is to make sure the loads of laundry are consistent. A pair of jeans or a bath towel in a load of lighter clothes can cause an off balance condition, causing the machine to constantly try to re balance the load and never reaching high speed spin. Other than that,make sure your spin speed option is set to high. If those don't solve the issue,contact a local repair company to come out and take a look. Hope that helps.

Problem with the Whirlpool Shift Actuator. Fault is displayed when the main control cannot determine position of shifter. • Check harness connections from main control to motor and shifter. • Observe shifter operation. Replace the shifter if it is bad.

Motor Stalled The motor RPS (Rotor Position Sensor) detects no rotation of the drive motor. Unplug the washer. Check to see if the basket spins freely. If not, then examine the drive system and eliminate the cause of friction. If the basket spins freely, check the wire harness connections between the main electronic control board and the motor. If the wire harness connections are okay, check the drive motor. If the motor is defective, replace it.

You have to access this dryer through the front. First, unplug the dryer. Next, remove the lower front panel. There are 2 hidden metal spring clips in the seam above the lower front panel and if you slide a flat head screwdriver above these clips you can pry them down and the lower front panel will hinge forward ad down and unclip from the top. Now the fuse is mounted to the top of the blower wheel housing behind the lint filter enclosure. But the fuse stops the motor so that isn't going to be the problem.If the unit is just not heating, look at the heating canister under the drum along the right side. There are 2 small devices attached to the left side of the heating element. Test these 2 parts for continuity and if either are open, replace it. Also test the heating element itself for continuity and if that doesn't have continuity, replace the element.

Sounds like the belt under the machine is either broken or off the motor/pulleys. Empty the tub, turn off water, disconnect the power. Pull unit away from wall, tip it back so you can look underneath (Make sure to put blocks under machine so it doesn't fall on your head)Find the old belt to get the size. To replace the belt, put it on the motor pulley, the on the large pulley, then the small one. The motor mount is usually under spring tension.
