SOURCE: Whirlpool top Loading washing machine won't spin on spin cycle

If the washer won't finish a spin cycle, it probably means that your timer went bad or stalled. You can take the control panel off and look at the contacts for scorching or corrosion.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Toploader won't spin with a heavy load.

Do you mean it won't spin or won't agitate? Agitate means that the post in the middle (agitator) turns back and forth. It is very common for the agitator to stop working properly, especially if you normally do large loads.

Inside the agitator are little nylon feet called dogs. They grip the inside of the agitator and work like a centrifugal clutch, and they wear out every couple of years. They are normally the reason the machine won't agitate. I have had my washer for less than 4 years and I just replaced the dogs for the second time.

If you are handy with some simple tools, you can probably do this. If not, it should not cost too much to repair, and will be even cheaper if you remove the agitator and bring it with you to the repair shop. They did not even charge me the first time the dogs went because it took about 10 minutes to fix and I brought the agitator to them.

To replace the dogs, go to your local repair shop and tell them you need a set of agitator dogs for your washer. I paid $10 for them.

Pull off the fabric softener dispenser top and assembley. It just pulls out. There is a plastic disk with a handle on it. Pull this out and you will see a bolt. I believe it is an 11mm. You will need a couple of extensions to reach it. Remove this bolt by turning counter clockwise and the agitator will pick strait up. Place the agitator on the floor and press down on the base with your feet. If you look down into the agitator you will will see four small holes in a circular pattern. These holes have small plastic prongs coming through them. Using a screwdriver, gently press down on these prongs one at a time while pulling up (gently) on the agitator. This will release the agitator post from the base.

From the underside of the agitator post you can see the dog assembly. It pulls out easily. Pay close attention to how the dogs come out and put the replacements back in the same way. I repeat, PAY ATTENTION. It is a simple assembly process, but if you don't watch closely how it comes apart you may have a hard time putting it back together.

When you finish replacing the dogs, place the top of the agitator back on the base. Line up the pastic tabs with the holes (that you removed using the screwdriver) and carefully press down until the tabs snap through. If the tabs are not lined up with the holes, they will break off and that will be bad.

Place the agitator back in the washer, bolt it down, replace the plastic cover and fabric softener dispenser. It should be good to go. Do a trial run without clothes. Just push down on the top of agitator while it is in the agitation cycle. It should agitate correctly now.

Can't stop cycle

You probably have some other issue with the machine if it won't stop, but the machine may also not be spinning the mat out because the load is unbalanced. If you put it in on spin only, watch to see if it actually spins up to speed or not. You will see it rotate the drum back and forth a couple of times - it is sensing the weight of the load and trying to balance it. I the machine can't balance it, it will never spin up to max speed. If this happens, put a few other items in the washer with the heavy item (they need to be of similar weight - like some towels or a heavy jacket or something) and try again. Good Luck

Spin cycle does not drain water. The washer just stops when it gets to the spin cycle. The washer is a 70 series heavy duty.

What does LEstand for on the washer machine??

LE stands for Load Error. You may have a bad hall sensor, but more likely have an off balance or very heavy load which you were trying to spin at a high speed. For heavy / bulky items, use the low spin speed. After the cycle, you can power the machine up again and just push the spin speed button until the next higher speed shows, then push start to get a 14 minute or so pump and spin only cycle if you want to spin the load out a bit more.

Screen reads UE? what is UE?

UE stands for Unbalance Error. If the washer has tried to spin numerous times, tried to redistribute the load itself between each attempt, and still not been able to get the load up to full speed without experiencing an off balance condition, it will finally stop and display the UE code. This is most often the case when a heavy / bulky item(s) are being washed and the spin speed is set very high. When washing these items, set the spin speed to low. The machine will most likely be able to handle that. If you want them spun out faster, then AFTER the washer has made it through the cycle on low speed spin do this: Turn the power back on. Without selecting any cycle, just press the spin speed button, selecting the next higher spin speed. Now press start, and your washer will just do a 14 minute or so pump and spin.
For super wet heavy loads, if you cannot even get the washer to go through a cycle on the lowest spin speed, you may have to wring a bunch of the water out of the clothes by hand before doing the 14 minute cycle thing.

Washer will not pass wash cycle...Will not Drain

Nightshade, in most cases, no spin, no drain is a lid switch problem. If you advance the timer to the spin position does it spin? If the machine is agitating you can rule out the coupler. If you are sure that it is not a lid switch problem, then you are probably looking at a bad back.
