SOURCE: washer doesn,t spin

two possibles here, if the drain pump is clogged and therefore the unit will not go into a spin. After pumping, it will error out and just shut off. If the pump is ok, then the motor control unit has failed.

SOURCE: old model rca washer machine...will not agitate/wash the clothes,does spin.

If the washer fills up with water and you hear the motor running but the agitator doesn’t move, the agitator coupling is the most likely problem. First pump the water out by turning the timer to spin. Once the water is out, turn the washer off. Now pull up on the agitator until it comes off (it may be hard to pull off). Now that the agitator is off, you can see the agitator coupling, reach down and try to turn the coupling. If the coupling turns freely, it is striped out and needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: My washing machine does not spin dry the clothes

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

Whirlpool top loader agitates when filling up


Whirlpool top loader agitates when filling up
Nothing, I'm not sure what the problem could be because it does not happen all the time and when it does, it usually fixes itself. M# WTW57ESVW1


your water supply perhaps it is too low pressure ....

so the machine isnt filling fast enough

so check at the machine side of the cold water filler hoze
in the machine end is a filter cone
you need to carefully pull it out with flat nose pliers and clean it
if this doesnt fix it then perhaps the inlet valve is bad...

Why does my whirlpool model WTW57ESVW1 starts to rinse toward the end of the spin cycle?


The rinse is supposed to start during the spin...it's what removes most of the soap from your clothing! The spin forces the water through the clothes, flushing all but a small amount of the detergent away. The rinse cycle itself is more to remove solid debris that may have become trapped in the folds of cloth. It does so by floating and agitating the clothes.

The quick wash cycle is only for things that aren't soiled much, that you need to be done fast. It's not for everyday washing, just for things that maybe need no more than a freshening up. It makes it faster by cutting corners.

Roper washing machine runs through all cycles but clothes are still dripping when spin cycle is finished. I manually start a second spin and that helps, but don't want to do this every time.


You have to be sure its agitating first. if its not agitating and just sounds like it is you need to replace the motor coupler, a very easy and cheap fix but if its agitating and just not spinning then it will most likely need a new transmission which is still not very expensive or hard to install for your model...if you need further help please don't hesitate to email me at etsi00257@hotmail.com

Washer won't agitate with clothes in. Will agitate when empty with water


It's a whirlpool top load and 17 years old.
I checked the lid switch, water level switch and they are okay. I replaced the motor coupling. The old one was chewed up and crumbling.
When I put everything back together and turned it on to check if it would spin, I heard a buzzing sound and after a few minutes there was a burning smell.
What should I check to diagnose this problem? would help to have make or model numbers to show age of machine

My 4 year old roper washer leaves grease on clothes. On spin cycle the machine makes a screaching noise, and the clothes don't spin dry.


Possible that the belt is slipping and also there is some issue with the agitator as the gaps within seems to bring up the dirt or grease mix to the clothes.
So it is important to remove the panel and check the play on the belt, replace if the play is high and check if the agitator bearings are worn out. If so the agitator assembly must be taken out and checked.
