It appears your Drive Coupling/Belt has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Hello.i need a help,my whirlpool 6sense washing mashine 9769b when spining do horible and loud noice! I try to find bearing but i dont cnow did my washing mashine have one.


Any front-loader machine will have a shaft and two bearings supporting the tub. You may need to remove the back to find it. Also, check to make sure that whatever supports the tub (spider attached to the tub and bearing shaft) is still intact. Some models have reputations for this spider corroding and failing in as little as 2 years.

Washer not spining Top loader part I


There are a couple of key parts in makeing the tub of the washing machine spin and here are some of the ways you can test whats wrong with your washer and why it is not spining. The most popular for all direct drive units is of course the drive couple which is the small plastic and rubber piece that attaches the motor to the transmission these tend to break more often then any other piece due to when made for manufacturers they do not have any metal on the three pronged connector nor in the center the replacement coupler does come with a metal washer in the center which prevents the actual spining stress caused on the piece to break the small arms that come off the connector. the best way to test for the coupler is by visual inspection so remove the cabinet, pump and motor and assure that the drive couple has not broken at all. if you need a video of how to replace the drive coupler click here http://www.youtube.com/user/RepairClinic?v=9K1KHEogf3c&feature=pyv&ad=5501893181&kw=whirlpool%20coupler&gclid=CMSzgdOGvqgCFUSo4Aod1SgCqA

Another problematic area would be the clutch that is connected to the transmission. One of the easiest ways to check the clutch is to set the unit to spin with no clothes on the inside. While the unit is spining use the palm of your hand and press your palm against the inside wall of the inner tub if the tub slows or stops this would mean that the clutch is worn or defective and would need to be replaced. Here is also a video of how to replace the clutch click here http://www.youtube.com/user/RepairClinic?v=tVc6SZ2DD4U&feature=pyv&ad=5454782141&kw=washer%20clutch&gclid=CKut8bSGvqgCFYFM4Aod4n2trQ
there are also other parts that cause the unit to spin such as the motor, transmission, and timer and these will be discussed in part 2 So look for Washer not spining Top loader part II Thanks again for using Fixya

Tub support bearing failure is common in front loaders.

My whirlpool front load washing machine is making a loud knocking noise when in the spine cycle.


Bad tub baring or hopefully a cloged drain pump. If it is a tub baring it is going to cost a lot of money.

Good luck,

My washer wont empty out while spining.


The drain line is probably clogged. Maybe that a small sock or other piece of clothing get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump. To remove it from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub and try to remove the clothing through the port. Good luck

Machine does Agitate


Open machine's rear panel and remove belt. Check if motor spins (when it should, as per cycle stage). If motor is spining - Move tub manually and check for smooth spin In case it doesn't spin smoothly - maybe that a sock or other piece of clothing get between the clothes tub and the outer tub and prevent tub's spining. If this is the situation, you should remove it. In case motor doesn't spin- Check with multi-meter if it get power. If it get power - The problem is with the motor. Good luck !!
