The most challenging part of a Whirlpool washer repair is that most of us don’t know how to do it, and can’t figure how to disassemble it. The first step in the repair is to figure out the exact symptoms of the washer. If your washer is leaking, the water pump is most probably the cause. To check the pump, you need to first unplug the washer, and take out the two screws that hold the control panel in place. Once the control panel is up, you should be able to see a plug attached to the case with three wires – unplug it. Then start the washer and watch while the water is coming in. If the pump starts leaking, then you will need to replace the water pump. If your Whirlpool washer doesn’t go through the washer rinse cycle, the most likely cause of this is the water valve. In order to check the valve, first cut the water off and remove the hoses from the back of the washer. Then one at a time, point each hose into the tub and turn the water on again. If you do not  see a good water pressure coming, then turn the water back off and discard the strainer that should be at one end of the hose; inspect the strainer to check for blocks, clean it and reinstall. Once your water pressure is good, reinstall the hose, and your problem is fixed.
