Check the coupling between the motor and gearcase. It is likely worn out. Hope this helps!

It sounds like you have a motor coupling that is broken. There are videos on YouTube to show you how to repair this. Search for "motor coupling repair on direct drive".

Washing machine goes all the way to rinxe cycle and cuts off wont go to spin no matter if its regular was delicate or permanent press


Hello, when you stated your unit wont go into spin no matter which cycle the unit is on can you hear the motor running in the unit yet the tub is not spining if so then your unit would need to have the drive couple replaced here is a tutorial on how to replace the drive coupler in a washer such as yours click this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLPGs2UMUJc . On the other hand if you did not hear the motor when the unit was supposed to be spinning then you could either have a problem with the motor,the timer, or transmission. Usually it is the drive couple that is the cause in most situations where a unit will not spin. Watch the tutorial and if you have any further questions message me back Thanks Rick

My washer will spin but very slowly. Motor and shaft spins out of washer.


Your problem sounds like the drum/tub drive clutch is worn. Especially if the motor operates fine and attempts to spin the tub. This model is a direct drive unit, no belts, so if the motor operates during the spin and drain cycles but the tub is barely moving, only two problems can cause this, bad clutch (which is engaged only during the spin cycles) or worn drive coupling on the motor. If the coupling were a problem, though, you would also notice sluggish or erratic agitation during the wash cycle.

Hope this helps

The tub will not spin in the rinse cycle


This sounds like a timer problem if it will spin in other cycles. If you hear a motor running but no spin it is the motor couple.

I have a Roper brand top loader washer and it fills up but it won't drain or spin.


If the motor doesnt run during the spin cycle and the tub stays full of water. You need to replace the lid switch. This is very common problem. The part should be around 35 bucks. Easy fix.

Washer wont spin


if the coupler and clutch are ok and you can hear the motor functioning, then it appears that your transmission is bad.most of the time you will see that in the days/weeks leading up to this that your cloths were more wet than usual when you took them out of the machine. Check your owners manual for warranty information. Some machines had a 5 year warranty on the transmission or gear case as whirlpool likes to call it.
