Washer is not spinning

My washer was bought three years ago, new. Now that the warranty is expired my washer has quit spinning. I have had to put loads through an additional spin cycle to get the clothes less wet. Now... it won't spin at all! Could this be the drive belt? I'm wwanting to fix this myself. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Washer is not spinning

The motor coupler could be worn. This is accessed by removing the front of the cabinet. The upper console 1s held on by 2 screws at the base of the upper control at the back corners. The console slides forward then rotates up. Benearth the upper console is 2 gold spring clips which have to be pryed out with a screwdriver, The power cord will have to be disconnected at this time. The whole cabinet will tip forward 45 degrees leaving the base and tub assembly stationary. The cabinet then can be slid out of the way. In the front at the bottom is the pump and motor. Pry off the 2 spring clips that hold the plastic pump in place and pull it out of the way. You do not need to disconnect the water lines. The motor is held in place by 2 spring clips which are fastened to the motor by a 5/16 hex bolts. Remove these bolts and pry the clips out of the way they both will pop off of the motor, do not let the motor drop. Pull the motor out of the way revealing a black rubber disk with a white coupler on the motor shaft and one on the transmission shaft. this whole assembly will likely be damaged and will need to be replaced. The coupler should only cost about $10 at any appliance parts store.

Washer quit spinning

Sounds like the lid switch has failed. This switch will not allow the drum to spin if it senses that the door is not locked. Have it replaced and that should take care of the problem. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Whirlpool Duet Washer (GWH9100LW1) Bangs Loudly during spin

how old iss your washer? do you have an owners manual. because usually there is an extended factory warrenty on the tub and basket. the only thing you would have to pay for would be the labor. Call whirlpool if you do not have a owners manual to find out. the bearing is compressed in the tub. does it sound like an airplain taking off in your house that's usually it.

probaly control bd problem any way to get history started also may consider extended warranty from where you purchased it some other warranty company control may finally go after warranty expires and and extended one would help avoid problems getting coverage for a problem that may be present during original warranty..ever tried convincing company to repair something that was faulty to begin with??
