During the spin cycle the water drains but it doesn't spin. Clothes were stuck to the sides of the washer but completely soaked.


Greetings,
if your washer will fill up and make the sound like its working, but not agitate, and it drains the water, but will not spin..The most likely culprit is a broken drive coupling. I would fill it up on a small load and see if it does what I said.....if so, lean the washer over so you can work under the front of it. there will be two clips that hold the pump on..remove those, but remember how they came off...pull the pump off the motor and set to the left side. .. next, there are usually two screws in the two clips that hold the motor on. Remove those screws and remove those two clips making sure you see how to re-install them.. while removing the last motor clip, be careful as the motor will fall out....on the one side of motor will be a coupling...this may have a broken ear or be split..its possible, it will be ok...now, look into area where the motor fits and you will see a black round piece of rubber with holes in it..this sits over another coupling on the transmission shaft...this is either broken, or the motor coupling is or a combo of both. if broken, remove and order yourself a drive coupling..re-install and put everything back in reverse order..when installing these you will have to drive them on with something that fits between the center of the new coupling, so you do not break the ears off..I use a deepdish socket....it works well with installing the new coupling on the transmission..........if by any chance the coupling does not look broken, its possible to be rounded and slipping on the shaft..if you determine its not...then the basket drive or transmission is gone out...this time you will need a service person to repair......Bruce Denton ps..if you find out i was correct , please let me know here..thanks

I have a two speed automatic whirlpool washing machine


It sounds like your motor coupling has broken. Normally the older the machine gets,the more wear and tear on the coupling. Order the coupling as per the model and gain access to the main motor. remove both clips holding motor then pull off broken pieces then install new kit.(easy to see how). Reinstall motor and retry. Done.

My husband replaced the coupling on our kenmore


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

I'd verify that the Motor Coupler is installed correctly first.

I'd also verify that the Lid Switch was re-connected after replacing the coupler. (A common oops that I've done myself)

If it was, I'd test the Lid Switch by jumping the two outermost contacts with a short piece of insulated wire.

See the Whirlpool Service manual for their top load, direct drive washers for how to bypass the switch.

Not draining or spinning


There is a coupling in between the motor and transmision cost about 10 bucks if that much. Sounds like you need a new one. Flip washer on it side and look at the motor where it connects to the transmission you will see a coupling.
