Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

Open Question

WFW8300SW05 My washing machine is not spinning. It will will up and drain water but does not spin. I recently replaced the belt, so I pulled the back off and mechanically ever thing look good. So I tested with a volt meter to see if I am getting power. Its a 195v Motor, 3 Ph motor. Well I got 160 + volts out of three of the 5 power wires. The motor never hummed, smell or anything. My worry with the motor is last week I noticed water leaking out of the back and a vent hose above the motor was leaking. Not very much but enough that the motor could have gotten some water on it.

SOURCE: Washing machine not draining

If you are confident you can do it pull your pump off washing machine and pull the pump houseing apart most will come apart and make sure there is nothing in the pump maybe a small piece of plastic or other item in it. you could also try taking the hoses off the pump and just flush water through it backwards this will also sometimes work I have come across this a lot and normally it is something in the pump interupting the water flow. There may also be sand or small pebbles in the drain holes under the adgitator if flushing the pump doesn't help check under the adgitator for something in the holes. Hope this helps

SOURCE: Whirlpool top loader won't spin and I replaced the motor and the coupling too

If your basket appears to be off-center in the opening, and there is evidence of the basket rubbing the front of the plastic tub, then you should check out my post at:

http://www.fixya.com/support/t1254687-duet_washer_very_loud_when_spinning

If this is what happened to your washer, the 'burning smell' you refered to was the plastic tub getting hot from the rubbing of the basket (mine smelled the same way, I originally thought there was an electrical failure).

SOURCE: washer motor will not start spinning on its own.

motor problem confirmed. It doesn't spin If your washer won't spin, check these:

It doesn't pump or spin
It pumps, but doesn't spin
It spins only with the lid closed
It doesn't pump or spin If it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:

  • If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.


  • If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.


It pumps, but doesn't spin If your washer pumps out the water but doesn't spin, check these:

  • The lid switch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn't spin. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.


  • The motor coupler may be broken. Many Whirlpool®-manufactured washers use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. You may need to replace it.


  • A belt may be broken. Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.)


  • The clutch may be worn. If your washer is a GE, it may use a clutch to come up to the proper spin speed. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the unit from spinning well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician.


  • The drive motor may be defective. Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor.


  • The transmission may not be shifting properly. Older washers produced by Whirlpool® have a transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective, the unit may drain the water but not spin. This is a complex system, if your washer has a shifter problem, you may want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it.


  • The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized. These components allow the inner tub to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this is the problem, you usually hear a loud sound during the spin cycle. Call a qualified appliance repair technician.


It spins only with the lid closed For safety, washing machines are made so that they spin only with the lid closed. The lid switch prevents the spinning action when the lid is up.

SOURCE: 5 year old Whirlpool Gold

Easy solution: NEVER BUY A WHIRLPOOL PRODUCT. It's only 5 years old. You spent good money. In reality, this machine is doing exactly what WHIRLPOOL Corp. programmed it to do: FAIL.
NOW, you call the service guy. They tell you it will cost about $500 to $600...which is really not a good solution. Because in 5 years, this stuff happens. The best solution is to BUY A NEW WASHER. Mission accomplished! Sell product. FIX -ha! That's how things were when our grandparents purchased appliances. Parts could be replaced. That's no longer the deal.

Washing machine keeps stopping


A washing machine won't spin if the water can't drain. Check hoses for any kinks or clogs that may prevent the water from draining. If a hose has kinks, try to straighten out the kinked hose. If it can't be straighten sufficiently, replace the hose. If hoses are not kinked, check for clogged hoses. This can be done by using the screwdrivers to remove the hoses and looking for clogs or running a water hose through the clogged hose to remove the clog. Use the rags and bucket to clean up the water that comes out of the hoses when they are disconnected. Once the clog is cleared, put the drain hose back into place. The washer should drain and spin now if a clogged or kinked hose was the problem.
If the washer still won't drain or spin, check to see if the lid is not closing all the way or if the lid switch is not clicking into place. Close the lid and make sure that it closes all the way down. When the lid closes, the lid switch should click. If there is no clicking sound, then the switch may need to be replaced. Follow manufacturer's directions for replacing the switch. If the lid does not close all the way, visually check for signs that the lid is bent. If bent, try to bend it back into place.
Loose or broken belts could also prevent a washing machine from draining or spinning. Pull the washer away from the wall and, using the screwdrivers and wrenches, remove the back panel. Using the flashlight, visually check for any broken or loose belts. Replace any broken or loose belts. Although replacing washing machine belts is difficult, anyone who has replaced belts on a car, lawn mower or even a bicycle chain should be able to accomplish the task.
Another possibility for a washing machine to not spin or drain is the pump. With the back panel still off the washer, check the pump with the voltmeter to ensure that the pump is getting power. If the washer is getting power, turn on the washer and listen to find out if the pump is running but the water is still not draining. It may be necessary to remove the pump and clean it or to replace the pump with a new one. Once the pump is replaced, turn on the washer to determine if it will now drain and spin.
If all of the above steps fail to produce a washing machine that drains or spins, then it is time to call a professional repairman. Use the screwdrivers and wrenches to replace the panel on the washer and push it back against the wall.
