I have whirlpool model wtw5550xw0. Initially my wife noticed the machine didnt spin a load. She put in another load and realized it had not agitated (clothes were not clean). After going to Appliance
Parts Pros to seek help (i called a local repair that I got off Angie's List but no one wants to work on these HE Machines!), and was advised to change the motor. I did that, still didnt work. Then was advised to change "Splutch" and I did that, still didnt work. My initial code (been messing with this for 2 weeks now, so if I remember correctly), F7 E5 &/or F7 E1, which I did put on my enquiry. I was told after these didnt work that it was probably initially the actuator or shifter. Put new one on. (Did calibrate machine after replacing motor btw!) Still not working. The code was then however, F5 E1 &/or F5 E2, and the lid lock was flashing.
You guessed it. Ordered new lid lock but when it arrived the outer covering on wires was split although wires inside looked fine and intact. The split was about 12 inches. Put it on and still not working. Was advised that even though wires looked ok it was probably the lock they sent out and would send me another. I also ordered the Strike since the code indicated a fault.
Just finished putting it on, calibrated again just to be safe, ran a diagnostic with the LED on "Done" and all LED'S blinked twice, one second, blink again, and repeated.
When I ran the calibration the sensing light came on and you could hear it draining...NOW, no matter what cycle I put it on, the sensor comes on as normal with lid lock light, then lid light goes off, as normal, but then lid light comes back on and just flashes!! As aforementioned the code doesn't tell me anything unless them all blinking is something not listed.
I'm at my end. This washer was about $700, so far have spent little less than $300. Can you help or should I just give up? This is first problem I've had, and of course it's quite enough.
