WTW4900BW0 Whirlpool Washer Not Spinning

The washer would drain, but not spin. I replaced the shift actuator and it worked good.

This is the shift actuator for this model:
WPW10006355
WPW10006355 Shift Actuator

There is a “HOW TO” video when you click the part link to the shift actuator.

I explain in detail “HOW TO” test this shift actuator in our appliance repair forums: FIXED: WTW4800BQ0 Whirlpool Washer Won’t Spin

There is a data sheet in each washer, you have to raise the top on the washer, then it will be located inside the front panel on the left as your standing in front of the washer.

This video shows you “HOW TO” raise the top of the washer: Whirlpool/Kenmore Top-Load Washer Disassembly

WTW8500DC0 Whirlpool Washer Not Filling Properly

Went on a service call in Parker, Arizona for a Whirlpool washer, model number WTW8500DC0, that wasn’t filling fast enough, very slow fill and it would time out per the control board. The error code was F8E1 LONG FILL.
I checked the customers water pressure to the washer on both hot and cold and it was good water pressure. Then I checked the water inlet valve screens and they were not clogged.
I ordered a new water inlet valve and went back to the customers house to install it, and it worked great, much faster water fill and no more error code F8E1.

Here’s the water inlet valve for this model:

I went on this service call because the customer said the washer was not spinning and leaving the clothes wet. When I arrived I found the door latch lock switch assembly broken.
