Whirlpool Washer has to go!

Whirlpool Stackable Washer's mind of its own has to go!

Whirlpool Washer 2017 Ventana Le 4037. This washer at least 60% of the time does not start, several error codes and from I understand is a problematic unreliable washer. I have been told not to attempt a repair but replace the washer with a Splendide washer and that the Whirlpool stack brackets can be reused, retain the Whirpool dryer.
Has anyone done this?

Plus installation costs....I would probably go back to Nappanee to get it done.
We still have ours, but due to family issues, we have not been able to get out as much as we like and have not used the washer as often as others may have. I think that’s why ours still works.

We changed ours out.......

We bought a Splendide during a great sale at Camping World online. Had it delivered to our house.

Made an appointment at Newmar Factory Service, hauled the washer up there and they installed it. Saved me quite a few bucks by buying the machine myself. They have no problem installing items you buy and take to them - - just insure the part fits......

I did try and have it dropped shipped to the service center but Newmar would have nothing to do with it......We live fairly close to Nappanee.

Seems 2017 model Newmar's got a really bad batch of Whirlpool washers for that model year.....

Washer

Thank you for the update. Were you able to reuse all mounting hardware or did you need to purchase new mounting brackets?

I will be placing a claim with my service contract and even if they elect repair I will pay the difference and replace.

Do any of you have the model number of the new washer?

There was serious issues with the Whirlpool washers being installed in RVs around that time. It wasn't just with Newmars because I know other brand owners with the same issue. The newer ones are better. I know some had the old one repaired more than once.

Our Whirlpool washer used to act funny sometimes and right after we got the motorhome (2109 CS) it went out and Whirlpool came out and replaced all the control boards. They said that was easier than trying figure out which board was the problem.

After that I put individual surge protector power strips on each of the washer and the dryer. Now we are sure to turn off the power strips when we aren't using the units and before connecting or disconnecting shore power. Since that time we've had no issues at all and it's been about 15 months now.

Maybe coincidence. Don't really know. My thinking was that not all surges or spikes on the power lines come in from the outside world. Some are generated inside the RV. I might end up replacing the W/D in the future but for now I've saved a grand so far.

Sorry but I don't remember the model #. What Newmar put in the 2019 models.

We had a 2017 coach with a Whirlpool washer that had the “no start” problem. Found a suggestion on the internet to stack some tape up on the door frame, right where the little door button hit, we never had a problem after that. Seems that the button was not being depressed enough.

The Spendide model number is: ARWXF129W

I bought the mounting hardware but Newmar used the mounting hardware they used for the Whirlpool.

Good luck.

On our 2013 MA that we purchased last May, I was thrilled to see that the standard Whirlpool washer had already been replaced. We have a Maytag washer and the original Whirlpool dryer. Both have worked great so far.
