Every time I switch on my Whirlpool washing machine, it

This answer was rated:

Every time I switch on my Whirlpool washing machine, it works for about 2 seconds then stops (I don't want to try again, as I have finally managed to get the door open and take the wet-but-still-dirty clothes out). I guess there is a faulty connection. The machine is 20 years old, so is it worthy having the machine mended, or do I buy another?

Hi, welcome to Just answer .... looking at the age of this appliance the problem is with motor that will need replacement ... and it seems it is time to buy a new one as motor will cost around £250
If you have further questions I will be pleased to assist you .. Please remember to RATE my answer Excellent or Good Service when you are satisfied....Thanks
