ATW4475TQ0 Admiral Washer Not Spinning

Went out on a service call and the complaint was the washer would not spin. I first unplugged the washer and ohm tested the lid switch for continuity, while I activated the lever on it. It ohm tested bad, no continuity, meaning the numbers on my digital multimeter didn’t change.

I replaced the lid switch and it worked perfect!

LSE7806ACE Maytag Stack Washer Dripping Water

I went out on a service call and the complaint was water constanting dripping into the tub at all times, even when the washer was not being used. Over time the water inlet valve wears out and causes this to happen.

I replaced the water inlet valve and it worked great! No more dripping water into the tub.

There is a video in the water inlet valve part link that shows you how to replace it.

WTW4816FW1 Whirlpool Washer Not Spinning

When I arrived the washer was not spinning, and the sensor light was flashing when I put it in a drain/spin cycle to test it.

The tech sheet is located inside the washer taped to the inner front panel, after you raise the top you will see it. This video shows you how to raise the top.

Go into diagnostics and retrieve the codes, and clear them. If, when in diagnostics the codes are F7E1, F7E5, or motor speed codes, then chances are it is a motor, capacitor, or shifter related issue. Once the codes are cleared, put the washer into a manual diagnostic test and run the HEAVY AGITATION; if after 15‐20 Seconds the motor runs then you can rule out the motor, capacitor, control.

I removed the old shift actuator and installed the new one and it’s fixed!

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:
