Hey all, I'm new to the site, what a great site.

I have a Whirlpool LHW0050PK4 front loader, it's about 2 years old. Since we got it, once in a while it would go through the cycle, but not wash the clothes. Today is no different except that subsequent attempts to do the load have been tried unsuccessfully.

I found the L-75 Whirlpool Manual online, and downloaded it. The diagnostics and troubleshooting section said to put the program switch to the 6:00 position, a the spin selector switch to 3:00 position. While holding the prewash button, press the power button. My first several attempts did not put it into diagostics mode. After a while, she gave in and went into diagnostics mode. Strangest thing with the lights. They all came on, then from the top, went out, one at a time, until all went out, then did the same from bottom to top. Filled with water, pumped out. Did that a couple times before I hit the power button.

I couldnt test the other modes while this blink pattern was taking place.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

--Jim

Okay, my brain and fingers had a momentary disconnect. :shock:   I knew it was Q, not sure why I put K.

Correct Model: LHW0050PQ4

Okay, I have swapped door switch with one that is known to work, and did the same with the control panel. No go on my machine, the other works fine.

Troubleshooting steps are pointing to something wrong with the motor. The machine has only been in use for a little over a year, so I don't think it's worn out.

It stopped working after an uneven load of laundry caused a rather violent spin cycle.

Is there a reset button on the motor somewhere? I can't see one from behind, and have to remove the motor ot see the other side.

Could there be something else causing the motor to (temporarily) stop working?

Any help is most graciously appreciated.

--Jim

There's no reset on the motor

Not that uncommon for a motor to last only a year sometimes

You may get lucky and find a bad connection at the motor...check the connection well.
