Possible that the cloth is stuck on the agitator of the machine due to gaps with the spindle. You need to reverse the motor manually while holding the cloth to come out freely. If there is friction , slowly agitate to allow free movement to the stuck material. If there is play on the spindle and bearing then you need to reset the mechanism,

Why is my whirlpool deut washer tearing clothes


Check the little holes around the drum, I have seen pins and needles get stuck in these and cause lots of damage. I would replace the seal.

The agitater is not solid and clothes catch under the arms on the bottom and tangle and have even ripped. What can be done about to stop this? It seems like a design flaw to me.


It is not the best of designs.

Sometimes, clothes will get stuck at the bottom when the agitator dogs are worn out. Check to see if the upper part of the agitator is working during the wash cycle. If it isn't, the clothes stay at the bottom and just move horizontally, not from the bottom to the top. The clothes then get stuck in the gap between the lower agitator vaens and the bottom of the agitator. This is a very easy repair, you need only a socket wrench set (SAE) with an extension.

You can also buy the dogs (pawls) by themselves in a pack of four for about $5.

When I first saw this agitator set-up, I asked myself, 'What were they thinking of?'.

Good luck.

Have a year old Whirlpool Ultimate Care II. After wash is spun and load is done the clothes are still sopping wet. Tried extra rinse but that doesn't help. Afraid of damaging dryer when putting clothes...


Check to make sure a nail has not gotten stuck in one of the hole in thew bottom of the drum. Check to see that no article of clothing has gotten jammed between the tubs or the top.

I've got a wash cloth stuck in the sink disposal


Yes, you will need to get a disposal wrench, one would have come with diposal new. If you cant find one, one can be bought at hardware store. On bottom of disposal in center you should see a hole, the wrench will fit there. Turn counter clockwise. This should free up wash cloth.

Stops in the middle of rinsing...leaves some water at bottom-


Calypso...The pumps fail often. They have redisigned one that theres not as many problems with, but if you still have the original, this is deffinatly the problem. As far as clothes getting stuck, the U-Joints wear out and cause too much play allowing things to get stuck. Total for this repair parts + labor will usually run about 500-600. There was a class action lawsuit for this machine and they no longer make it.

Clothes stuck under the agitator


you really have clothes stuck under the "wash plate" it has almost zero clearance and would be very hard to get something stuck under the wash plate.
if you do have something stuck, then remove the 1 1/2 inch cap in the center of the plate, then a 7/16th bolt that holds the plate down. then grab the wash plate and lift up to remove it.
next time check your pockets and dont let this happen again, it could ruin the outertub by cutting a hole thru it and then leaking.

Drum is stuck


Maybe that a sock or other piece of clothing get between the clothes tub and the outer tub. Open washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then,try to remove the clothing through the port. keep a rag nearby to dry up spillage of water when removing the rubber host. Good luck !!
