Question and Answers

Q:

Ring possibly in Whilrpool Washer model WTW5540SQ0 WTW5540SQ0 Whirlpool Residential washer

A:

Thank you for your inquiry on your Whirlpool Washer, Model: WTW5540SQ0. From reviewing the details on your model, in your model I’m not seeing a coin catch which most washers have. There is a possibility the ring might have gone into the pump and has stayed there. 

Safety Warning: Before beginning the repair, disconnect the direct power supply to the washerto prevent the risk of injury or any electrical shock.

If you don’t feel comfortable or confident in this repair, then you can have it repaired at home by a sears technician. I have the included a link to the website: Sears Home Services or call 1-800-469-4663.

I hope this answered your question. Thank you for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com, and have yourself a wonderful day.

Thank you for your inquiry on your Whirlpool Washer, Model: WTW5540SQ0. From reviewing the details on your model, I suspect the load sensing switch could be what is causing the washer to make a hard stop after the spin cycle. I have included a link to a couple of videos which should be able to assist you in trouble shooting other possibilities.

Q:

Troubleshooting Question WTW5540SQ0

A:

Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect. I will be more than happy to assist you with your Kenmore washer.

From the information you have provided above,I would suggest checking the washer’s lid switch. If the switch is bad it won’t allow the washer to spin. So because you’ve already checked the coupler and clutch the next step would be to check the lid switch. it acts like a safety feature for the washer. The switch is part number 8318084. This part is very common when the washer isn’t spinning. This should do the trick If this does not fix the issue than I’d recommend calling a technician to head out.

I hope you found this information useful. Again thank you for choosing Sears, we appreciate your business, have a great day.
