Washer only stays on rinse cycle


The first thing to check in a no-spin condition on any washer is the lid switch. The whole purpose of the lid switch is to stop the tub from spinning when the lid is opened and this should also cause it not to drain or fill. It’s a safety thing.


A quick check of the lid switch is to slowly raise and lower the lid a little bit and listen for a faint clicking sound. This is usually a pretty good indication that the lid switch is working but it’s not definitive. A better test is to put an ohm meter on it and test the switch. You can access the switch by removing the washer cabinet.

The lid switch will most likely look like one of the two pictures below. You can click the pictures for a larger view and to order the part.

Whirlpool washer won't rinse or spin w/o manually turning knob


It is most likely that you have a faulty water inlet valve. Some machines have a seperate valve for rinse to flush in a fabric softener I suspect that your detergent flushing valve is faulty.....Good luck Nomess

Rinse problem


Sounds like a timer issue. Try this, Yes it sometimes works. Spin the timer knob vigorously six to ten complete turns. It may be that the contacts are stuck together and this frequently frees them. Timers are expensive, so this is worth a try. Good luck.

My washer when it is in the wash cycle will stop at 1/2 way and not drain, spin or rinse. Could it be the timer? If I turn the knob manually I can get it to finish the cycle.


If you can manually turn the timer to spin and it drains and spins it is a bad timer.
If it drains only and does not spin it is a bad lid switch.

Sometimes the spin cycle works and sometimes it doesn't. The water is draining, but sometimes the clothes are still very wet and I have to wring water out of them before I put them in the dryer.


if that is a top load whirpool suspect transmission..the transmission is designed to drain first and then after another timer pause go into spin sometimes after the pause they fail to do so it is a hard problem to verify without a lot of patience..put washer into final rinse allow washer to complete cycle on it's own DO NOT MANUALLY ADVANCE TIMER OR OPEN LID if possible you can raise lid and hold lid switch down.. after agitation there should a short pause then pump out then another pause and spin should engage if you do not here spin raise lid then shut if spin starts change transmission..on rare ocassion have seen timer never pause then change timer if this is only occasional may be hard to spot and may require more than 1 attempt to catch it..good luck

Spins when it feels like it


Popcorn, sounds like you are having trouble with the lid switch. The plastic housing in which the screws hold the switch to the cabinet may have cracked, or came loose. If the lid switch is not making correct contact the result is no spin, no drain. The switch actuator on the lid itself may need adjustment. The lid switch is mounted to the cabinet on the back right side under the consol. The lid switch part number is 8054980. But check the actuator first. Catriver..post back.
