KitchenAid Washer with no spin

The washer was working yesterday and we heard a noise while it was spinning and we opened the door and the spinning started to stop so we closed the lid and it continued to run. Later the washer would function properly until it came to the spin cycle and would not spin? The washer is only 2-3 years old, top load.

    Sorry it was a sock in the pump so we pulled the sock out and it works great now.

Hi, so you have a kitchinaid washer that is not spinning and making a horrible noise.
More than likley you have a bad drive coupler. Which is located if you tip the unit back. not all the way, just enough to see the inerds of the washer. I usually prop it against the wall. There is your pump and attached to the pump is your motor. Between the motor and the transmission is your drive coupler. take the pump and motor off to gain acces to this part. there are 2 clips for the pump and 2 clips for the motor. usually 2 screws holding the clips for pump 2. Take the motor off and you will see the coupler. there is a grommet that goes between the 2 pieces sometimes that gets worn out and you will see black soot on the ground. That's a good indicationg that the coupler is the culprite

Lid is not locking properly, washer sensor is overfilling, and the washer wont spin


Check door switch: If the lid switch is bad it will not drain or spin. Try this test: With lid open let it finish wash cycle. Press lid switch down with screwdriver. Washer should begin draining. Release switch. Motor should stop. Press switch a second time. Washer should start spinning as it continues to drain. If motor doesn't come on while lid switch is pressed, replace the switch. OR
