You will need to check the capacitor on the machine. It can be tested with a capacitance meter the easiest. It can be tested with a resistance meter, but this will tell you if the capacitor is shorted or open. It will not tell you the capacitive value if the component has drifted out of tolerance. You put the meter across the terminals and watch the display for counting up to infinity. This will occur quickly and disappear very quickly. Now reverse the leads on the terminals, (reverse the polarity). The same thing should happen, but a bit more pronounced. It will once again rise very quickly and go to an infinite reading. This tells you that the capacitor isn't shorted or open internally. Here is the capacitor to order if you should find it bad.

SOURCE: washer won't drain, makes loud noise

This problem, or some variation thereof evidently is very common with these Whirlpool Washers!  I have same problem.  So far, best I have found is at  http://applianceguru.com/forum2/5958.html#
diagnosis by someone who knows.  What William Burk says there makes sense.  However, to get to the drive block there's quite a bit of disassembly required.  I am stopped because I cannot get the spanner nut off.  Hope this gives you some help toward finding a more comprehensive answer

My Whirlpool Ultimate Care II Washer doesn't stop filling with water


If this only happens when the machine is turned on,the tube from the tub to the water level switch is pinched or broken. If the clear plastic tube is not pinched or broken,the water level switch in the control console is bad. If the machine lets water through when it is in the OFF position,the water valve where the hoses connect are bad.

My whirlpool ultimate II washer was working fine and just stopped. I could smell something like wiring getting hot and now it won't do anything. The basket is still full of clothes and water.


remove the frame,pop off the two clips that hold the pump on and pull the pump off of the motor shaft,start the machine,if it runs you have something stuck in the pump.if it does run get a shop vac and remove the water from the tub,then remove the clamps on the hoses just push them down the hose with a pair of plyers then loosen one hose at a time so you can vac out the water,once you have all the water out you can remove the pump and see what's stuck in it,usually,a sock,womens underwear or a metal from a bra.if it's not the pump move the shaft on the motor with the plyers were the pump slides onto,you could have a flat spot on the motor and by moving the motor at the shaft might free it up,i've done this,some motors will run all the time after this or it could stop again on the next load,watch it and see what happens.http://www.youtube.com/user/RepairClinic?v=DwV71h86Gxw&feature=pyv&ad=5457341861&kw=washer%20pump
watch video and it will show you how to get at the pump and motor.good luck with your washer

Whirlpool ultimate care II will not spin


You said,washer is full of water and will not spin. You hear the lid switch clicking. When you start it on spin cycle and hear a hum, the tub moves a couple of inches and then stops...shortly after it shuts off.


Some reasons this may happen
Washer won’t drain or spin
n
1. Is the drain hose clogged, or the end of the drain hose
more than 72 inches (183 cm) above the floor?
2. Is the lid open? ............Also the lid switch can be faulty!!
The lid must be closed during operation.
3. Is there excessive sudsing?
Always measure detergent. Follow manufacturer’s directions.
4 If you have very soft water, you might need to use less
detergent.

Sounds to me like the lid switch can be faulty!!Then it acts like the lid is open.
Huuum
