Question about Whirlpool WTW6400SW Cabrio Washer
When the machine is on the wash cycle, it counts down time on the timer, but it never agitates the clothes. Some items never even get wet. Then it goes to the rinse and spin cycles, and they work. Repair guy couldn't find anything wrong.
This model has gone through different control board revisions, could be control board related, service mode would have to be accessed to have machine run thru self-diagnostics. if it does not agitate on self-diag mode, unit needs board

first off check to make sure its spinning at all. although the waters draining is it really spinning? are the clothes stuck to the side walls as if they had??if so i would tip machine back and look on floor and around the inside of cabinet approx 12 in. from ground level looking for oil,( transmission oil) . if present youll need a new transmission and clutch assy

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.

The washer drew half a tub of water on the "Bulky items" cycle, and stopped. All the lights on the cycle dial light up and flash, the machine beeps and the me error message in the "estimated time remaining" field is "Ld". I've tried to shut the machine down and change the cycle to "drain and spin" but it will not agitate, won't drain or spin.

sounds as if you have a faulty lid switch, for safety reasons if the machine doesnt think the lid is closed it willnot spin/drain the waer out.

Turn timer to rinse cycle. let fill up and agitate. when it stops
agitating it should pause then start to pump water out. After about 2
minutes it should pause for 3-5 seconds then start again and spin. If
it starts the first time and never stops it will just continue to pump
but no spin. The 3-5 second pause allows the transmission to shift to
spin. If it does not do this the problem is your timer. You may need to
do this a few times to verify the problem.
If that is not the problem it is likely that you need a new clutch. You will need a technician to install a new clutch for you
