The specific parts necessary to repair a Whirlpool washer depend on the problem that needs to be fixed. Whirlpool divides washer parts into 20 categories on its website.
Parts that consumers can use to fix a Whirlpool washer include agitators, bearings, belts, control boards and capacitors. Repair parts that relate specifically to the drum or tub include hoses, tub ring assemblies, injectors and drum lifters. Power cords, locks, doors, timers and drip pans are also available for Whirlpool washers with problems related to those areas. Whirlpool also offers consumable parts such as drum cleaner, grease or oil that may be necessary to make a repair.
