If the coupler and clutch are ok and you can hear the motor functioning, then it appears that your transmission is bad.most of the time you will see that in the days/weeks leading up to this that your cloths were more wet than usual when you took them out of the machine. Check your owners manual for warranty information. Some machines had a 5 year warranty on the transmission or gear case as whirlpool likes to call it.

Washing machine goes all the way to rinxe cycle and cuts off wont go to spin no matter if its regular was delicate or permanent press


Hello, when you stated your unit wont go into spin no matter which cycle the unit is on can you hear the motor running in the unit yet the tub is not spining if so then your unit would need to have the drive couple replaced here is a tutorial on how to replace the drive coupler in a washer such as yours click this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLPGs2UMUJc . On the other hand if you did not hear the motor when the unit was supposed to be spinning then you could either have a problem with the motor,the timer, or transmission. Usually it is the drive couple that is the cause in most situations where a unit will not spin. Watch the tutorial and if you have any further questions message me back Thanks Rick

The machine will not spinn, the washing is very wet when finnished washing


clothes are wet after spinning this is due to faulty Motor coupler. test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning:If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine.If not then the coupler is broken.It has to be replaced;.This plastic-and-rubber component 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. When that happens, you need to replace it completely. ----------------------- If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component. Thanks.

The washer is not spinning well...Clothes are partly wet when cycle is completely off...it used also to leak at one time where we can see some water when the cycle is complete...


Hello, when the clothes are partly wet when cycle is complete then check these.
1. Motor coupler
2. Spin cycle

MOTOR COUPLER; To test the motor coupler, restart the washer in it's spin cycle,let the machine runs for a minutes and then open the lid and notice if the tub is spinning: if it's spinning when you lift the lid that means the coupler is fine and if it doesn't spin that means you have to replace it.
SPIN CYCLE: If the washer doesn't reach it's proper spin speed,the cloth may be wet at the end of the cycle,check to be if the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again,if the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt which you have to replace.
Thanks

The clothes are wet after spinning When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these:

Motor coupler
Spin cycle
Siphoning
Water-inlet valve
Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning:

  • If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine.


  • If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component 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. When that happens, you need to replace it completely.


Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component.

Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess.

Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

The cycle doesn't advance When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

Washer won't spin


Check the belt to make it has not snapped or is tangled. There may also be some kind of visible obstruction in the way.

Also check: the motor coupler may be broken. Many 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.

If it seems that washer tub doesn't spin freely it may be seized and expensive to fix this would need to be checked by a repair technician.

It is possible also that the transmission is worn if the tub starts to spin and then stops. This is also a repair technician job and could be expensive for a old machine that parts are hard to come by.

REMEMBER to unplug the washer before working on it to avoid injury.
