Customer Question
My WFW9151YW Whirlpool washer...

My WFW9151YW Whirlpool washer intermittently fails to start. I have replaced both brains and that changed nothing.

About 6 yrs old

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?
