There is indeed a drive belt to the imperial 70. Problem more likely is in the 'wig-wag' unit that engages and disengages the spin clutch and the agitator drive

SOURCE: Washer does not spin

Hi, There are several causes for this problem. Check these.


  • No spin at all: the lid switch is fried. You test it with your meter.                                  There will be a motor which spins the washing machine's drum.                                              If you don't hear the motor running, then its the lid switch which would have been broken and needs replacing. A bad lid switch wil interrupt the spin cycle.

  • In the Whirlpool washers, a common problem is that the lid plunger stops making contact with the lid switch. Use a pen to manually press the lid switch actuator (with the lid up, duh). If the washer spins...well, you know the rest.

  • Older (belt-drive) Whirlpool: the spin solenoid is burned out or has cut wires. Ohm out that solenoid (20-30 ohms) and test with a test cord. Make sure the wires are intact by giving them a little tug. If this is OK, you may need to adjust/replace the basket drive.



  • Timer is fried. On older timers, it's sometimes possible to run an external jumper to replace the bad internal contacts. Usually, however, the entire timer must be replaced. The only way to confirm is to use your meter and wiring diagram.

These are the causes that have to be inspected. You can also visit this site www.whirlpool.com/custserv/index.jsp

Hope my info solves your problem, Thanx for using fixya, Good luck.

Top load Kitchenaid washer KAWS850LQ wont spin. Took off back, found broke belt. Best way to replace belt


It won't spin without the belt. You need to place the belt from the motor to gearbox and there may be a tension pulley. Most are adjusted by loosening the motor and pulling it tight

The washer won't spin


Have you checked to see if there is a sock or string caught around the belt or up around the tub? This same thing happened to me once and that is what I found. One of my socks had gotten caught up around the top of the tub so it couldn't turn when the motor started on spin cycle. Also, if the belt is frayed it will not turn.

Washer won't spin


Assuming this is a top load washer, the most common cause for the agitator not spinning is a worn and/or broken drive belt. This is located on the bottom of the machine. A youtube video link below shows how to replace a typical drive belt. If the belt is good, the problem is either a bad clutch in the motor or a bound up agitator.

Whirlpool top loader washer will not spin


Could be one of several different things depending on the age and model. If its less than 10 years old and is a top load washer its probably a motor coupling (connects the motor to the transmission kinda like a belt) or lid switch. If the water is draining out but the washer is not spinning its probably the motor coupling. If it still has water in it and won't spin, its probably the lid switch. If your washer is a front loader there could be several things going on. Hope that helps.

Whirlpool not spinning fast enough. Not


We had same problem which got worse. I had to take the tub out as it wasn't engaging on spin. I feel a washer
was left out at factory as it wouldn't tighten down.
After a few attempts I finally found a washer that was
right ( elec dept ). You basically take the whole thing apart.
It works now but we bought extra washers

Washer motor spins but not the belt in spin cycle only,


It doesn't spin If your washer won't spin, check these: It doesn't pump or spin It pumps, but doesn't spin It spins only with the lid closed It doesn't pump or spin If it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows: If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt. If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Whirlpool Ultimate Care HD Plus Model #LSR8233EQ0 won't agitate or spin


It sounds like the coupling between the motor and gearbox has worn out. It should cost around $15 plus shipping and handling.
