check the lid switch,open the lid and on the right side you'll see a hole in the top panel,stick a screw driver in it,push down,you should hear a click,or close the lid and open it a couple of inches and close it,do this a few times,no clicking sound bad lid switch.

It's heavy duty thin twin model. The cycle stops at spin and water stays in the mashine.


When it gets to the SPIN cycle,wait 45 seconds. If it does not spin,open then close the lid.
If it spins then,replace the timer.
If it does not spin,replace the lid switch.

whirlpool washers have a drive coupling in between the motor and the transmission to replace this remove the top and disconnect the lid switch set it aside remove the front panel then remove the 2 clips that hold the pump on then push it out of the way then remove the 2 screws that hold the motor clamps on and then remove the upper and lower motor clamps remove the motor then replace the three piece "motor coupling" one piece goes on the motor the other three pronged plastic piece goes on the transmission and the rubber isolator goes between them and now just put every thing back together

Whirlpool Thin Twin Washer - does not drain water. I have replaced lid switch and water pump.


MAKE SURE THE CONNECTION ON THE TOP PANEL FOR THE LID SWITCH IS GOOD. ON OCCASION WHEN THE TOP PANEL IS SLID BACK IT CAN BEND THE BRACKET THAT HOLDS THE FEMALE END ON THE CONNECTION. HOPE THIS HELPS
