There could be 2 possible issues, one, the simplest is the switch activated by the lid, look for a plastic "prong" sticking out from the lid, see where it goes and find a switch, use sometime of similar size and see if you can activate it. If that is eliminated then it is a plastic coupling broken, quite involve, need to remove the back lower section and inspect for this, Had both these issues myself.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Duet not functioning during spin cycle.

In front of the machine below the door you have a panel. There are 3 torx screws holding it from under. Unscrew and pull panel down & then towars you. You will see the pump assembly right in the centre big black hoses.

You need a pair of pliers & a shop-vac if you have one, or towels & a bucket. Use the pliers to unscrew the pump filter, it is white in colour. When you unscrew this water will begin to leak out; use towels or shop-vac to mop up. Do this till all the water is mopped. Remove the drain trap completely, you will find all sorts of junk, clean out completely & refit carefully, in reverse order.

Hope u appreciate this, u can rate me........

SOURCE: Whirlpool washer won't rinse/spin

make sure first it isn't the lid switch. As the lid closes, a pin in the lid usually pokes into a panel/hole and closes the switch. If the switch has been smashed by an unbalanced load, it often cannot let the machine spin for safety. If you cannot tell if the switch was damaged, remove the case. You'll likely see broken plastic on switch lever.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Duet Sport Model WFW8300SW0 basket won't

The following list of codes indicates an electronics communication problem with the washer: - Duet HT washer - F01, F03, F06, F11, F23, F24, F27, F28, F29, F30, F31, F32, F35, F42, F61, F62, F63, F64, F65, F70, F71, and F99

If Pause/Cancel does not work:

  1. Unplug washer or disconnect power for one minute.
  2. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
  3. Re-select the cycle and press Start.
NOTE: If the error remains on the display, call for service.

I would first replace the door latch/lock assembly, a number of users have and it fixed the F-11 error code completely. Its the cheapest part for this problem.

Hope helps.

No spin, or lite spin try these:



Using a multi meter check for continuity the door switch, which when bad may not allow agitation or spin. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically.



Check the clutch, brake assembly and transmission, one way to check for slipping is to get under the machine after a spin cycle ( this is if u get a lil spin but not much leaving clothes still wet) mix in a spray bottle a lil water and some dish detergent, then spray it on the clutch assembly ( the metal round pc. Connected to the tranny) if it sizzles and steams up then u know its bad and slipping. Another way to check clutch if u get no spin at all? Is to take it out and use ur hand to try and turn the inner spring assembly pushing it around the inside? If its very easy, it BAD should be hard to push by hand.

Or try the hand test:

If no hammering sound has ever been heard out of this machine, one of the unofficial tests we professional appliantologists will do in the field is called the Hand Test. WARNING:This test is not sanctioned by Whirlpool Corporation; it involves bypassing safety equipment and then putting your hand on and near rotating machinery which could result in injury, dismemberment, disfigurement, disembowelment, mangling, hideous screaming, and a bloody death. Proceed at your own risk! Have a nice day.

- put the timer on a spin cycle and open the lid- grab the inner basket with maybe 30% to 40% of your hand strength with your left hand

- turn on the machine and bypass the lid switch by depressing the lid switch with a key until the machine begins to spin

- if the clutch is engaging properly, the basket should immediately begin to spin and slip through your hand

- if it takes very little force to stop the tub from spinning, the clutch needs to be replaced.



Next check the motor coupler which engages the tub and tranny to the motor. ( if its bad u usually get no wash or spin or very little of either)



Next check for a loose, worn or broken belt if belt driven. And on some models there is no clutch but rather what is called a splutch. And a MODE shifter. These can go bad and effect the spin cycle.



On some front load models u may need to check the STATOR assembly.

The stator is essentially one half of a motor, it interacts with the tub by creating a strong electro-magnet. If the stator burns out the washer won't spin or agitate. Check the stator for continuity. This part is often misdiagnosed.



Sometimes a no spin machine can be due to a plugged waterpump hose or obstructed water pump propeller. Check these by eye and hand.



Your next step is toremove the cabinetand jumper the lid switch harness (tan to gray). Put the unit in spin and watch the shiny metal clutch disc that is on top of the transmission where the shaft comes out. If the machine starts and runs in spin, check to see if the disc is spinning. If it is, then the problem isnot in the gearcase- look for trouble in theclutch,basket driveor the tub drive block



If, on the other hand, the disc is NOT spinning, check for a problem withthe motor drive coupleror one of its retainers. This washer doesn't have a belt. Instead, the motor is directly coupled to the gearcase by a drive coupler; that's why it's called a direct drive washer.

The machine doesn't spin properly and doesn't drain the water


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Lid Switch Assembly If the washer won't spin the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Motor Coupling If the washer won't spin the motor coupling might have failed. The motor coupling connects the motor to the washer transmission. It is designed to fail if the washer is overloaded in order to protect both the motor and transmission. Another common problem is the lid switch.

Drive Belt If the washer won't spin, check the drive belt. If the belt is broken or if it isn't tight on the pulleys the washer won't spin properly.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer spin the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.
Motor Control Board If the washer won't spin the motor control board might be defective. The motor control board provides power to the motor as well as direction and force. If the motor control board is defective the washer may not work at all or function properly.

Drive Block If the washer won't spin the drive block might be worn out or may have come loose. Underneath the agitator the drive block connects the inner tub (the one that spins around) to the transmission. If the drive block wears out the transmission shaft will still spin but the tub may not - or it may spin slowly. This also usually causes a lot of noise. The drive block is relatively easy to replace.

Clutch Assembly If the washer won't spin, the clutch assembly might be worn out. The clutch assembly makes the connection between the transmission and the inner tub. It is designed to allow the tub to get up to the proper spin speed gradually. As the clutch wears out it may prevent the tub from spinning. The clutch is not repairable, if it is loud or not working properly it will need to be replaced.

Clutch Band kit If the washer won't spin, the clutch band kit might be worn out. The clutch makes the connection between the transmission and the inner tub. It is designed to allow the tub to get up to the proper spin speed gradually. As the clutch wears out it may prevent the tub from spinning. If the washer won't spin, this clutch band kit may need to be replaced.

Drive Motor If the washer won't spin the drive motor might be defective. This is not common. Check all of the other related parts to this symptom before replacing the motor. If the motor is visibly burned out or physically damaged It will have to be replaced.

Tub Bearing If the washer won't spin the tub bearing might have seized. This is a common problem and relatively easy to replace.

Tub Seal and Bearing Kit If the washer won't spin the tub seal and bearing might have seized. This is a common problem and relatively easy to replace.

Bearing If the washer won't spin the bearing might have seized. This is not common. The bearing doesn't require any normal maintenance. They generally go bad when the tub seal fails and allows water to leak past into the bearing.
Basket Drive If the washer won't spin the basket drive clutch might be worn out. The basket drive sits on top of the transmission and engages with the inner tub. If the basket drive wears out the tub won't spin.

Basket Drive Hub Kit If the washer won't spin the basket drive hub might be worn out. The hub is a set of plastic gears underneath the agitator. The basket drive hub kit is easy to replace with standard hand tools.
Transmission If the washer won't spin the transmission might be worn out or defective. There are numerous more likely causes when a washer won't spin, which should be checked first.

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 washer wet after spin cycle


Hello.

1 Measure your drainpipe to make sure it is no taller than 96 inches in height and no shorter than 30 inches; otherwise, it won't pump enough water from the washer, or the water may flow back to the washer.

2 Look at the dial selection to make sure you have selected the proper spin speed for the material you are washing. Choose the highest spin speed for that particular material. If you choose the "no spin" or "low spin" option, your whirlpool washer might not remove all of the water from your clothes.

3 Check if you have chosen the appropriate wash cycle for the type of material you are washing. The whirlpool washing machine drains quite a bit more slowly on the "Delicate" and "Hand Wash" cycles.

4 Check for excessive soap suds accumulating in the washing machine. whirlpool recommends you use only high-efficiency detergent in whirlpool washers. Other detergents can cause excessive soap suds, which could cause the washing machine to operate at a slower spin speed than selected, resulting in sopping wet clothes.

5 Add more clothing items to the washing load. If you wash only one large item, like a coat or blanket, the washer might become unbalanced and react by lowering the spin speed, causing the machine to not drain as it should during the spin cycle.

6 Examine your drain hose for clogs or kinks. Straighten the hose out to allow water to flow through. Eliminate blockage in the drainpipe or utility sink.

Thanks.

Washer in the las cycle do not extract the water completely in other words do not spin (hi) to extract the water


You will need to replace the "clutch band" on the washer. The clutch has become worn and will not engage completely to bring the washer up to the proper spin condition. Here is a link to the clutch kit and it comes with the complete instructions for the repair.

Spin cycle on any setting will spin slowly but will not go into hispeed spin, why?


Hello there:
The clutch may be worn. If your washer is a kenmore or GE, it may use a clutch to come up to the proper spin speed. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the unit from spinning well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician. The drive motor may be defective. Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor. The transmission may not be shifting properly. Older washers produced by Whirlpool® have a transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective, the unit may drain the water but not spin. This is a complex system, if your washer has a shifter problem, you may want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it.
