The start button stopped working on my Whirlpool washer

Customer Question
Hello. The start button...

Hello. The start button stopped working on my Whirlpool washer WFW9351YW00 (bent pin behind the button). I took the console apart, straightened the pin and got it to work for a while but now it eiether bent again or broke altogether. Before taking the console apart again, I'd like to check whether the button with pin can be purchased separately somewhere? That's really all I need. Everything else works fine.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

The model number I listed above. Age - about 6-7 years

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

Yes

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

All I would need is the start button

Hello sorry to hear you are having trouble, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

No unfortunately they can't be purchased separate you just have to buy the entire console:

Washer Console Part #: W10370315

Substitution: WPW10370315 - click here for part info at sears

considering the price I would be finding some apoxy and make something work.
