Whirlpool Thin Twin Stopped Spinning at End of Cycle, H20 Will Not Drain

I own a stacked Whirlpool Thin Twin Washer/Dryer Combo. Yesterday I did a load of laundry, and the load abruptly stopped in the washer near the end of the cycle. When I checked on the laundry, it was ready to go into the final spin cycle, but the unit just made a humming sound and would not spin, nor would the water drain from the washer. The washer also had a "hot" smell. Upon further inspection, I found that a shirt had been caught under the paddles/center spinning mechanism. However, after pulling out the caught piece of laundry, the washer still would not work and sat idle in the cycle. I am thinking that perhaps a belt broke when the laundry became stuck. Your thoughts? Is this something that I can fix on my own, or do I need to hire a professional to come in? Thanks a million! Jen Meisner

    How do you remove the agitator from the washer in order to remove something that is stuck underneath (and preventing the spin cycle from working)?? Any directions on how to do this??

You have a sock caught in the pump, need to pull off outer case and remove pump and clear it out.

Washer stops in mid cycle


This is probably normal. There is a natural pause between agitating and draining, and again between draining and spinning. Hope this helps!
