if it doesn't empty check the pump for blockages or just not working electrically, or check cold water supply to machine, or the cold water solenoid, this may also be faulty hope you can find what you need starting from the above, if i have helped please rate me

SOURCE: jammed agitator

Some further checking indicated a bad transmission. As the unit is 15 years old, I decided the best solution was a new machine! ..

SOURCE: will not spin

You have either a bad lid switch, a bad drive coupling or a bad timer. If you can move the timer dial to spin manually and turn it on and it spins the lid switch is good and the timer is bad. If you manually move it to spin and the motor runs with no spin, the drive coupling is bad. If you manually move it to spin and nothing happens, the lid switch is bad.

SOURCE: I have a whirlpool heavy duty extra large plus - no spin cycle.

The most common cause of the symptoms you describe is a lid switch malfunction. Symptoms include, filling and stopping on the intial fill cycle, stopping after the wash cycle, failing to advance to the rinse cycle and no draining.

The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

On some models, the lid switch is located under the top casing by one of the lid hinges. You will know if you if you have this type of switch, because It does not have a lid strike and the small hole on the right hand side of the wash tub will not be present. This switch is actuated (toggled) by a rod on the lid hinge. With this type of switch, if you locate it and it can be toggled by hand, you may only need to adjust the actuator by bending it slightly.

A replacement lid switch (if required) can be purchased at any of the following web sites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The average price is about $20 - $30. Prices differ between sites so shop and compare.

If you have questions, need additional assistance, please post back with your model number (located on a nameplate along the wash tub opening under the washer lid), so I can provide you with better assistance. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: water leaking during rinse cycle

If your TOP LOADING Whirlpool washer is leaking, the following link explains how to remove the exterior washer case in order to accurately inspect the washer interior components for the source of your leak:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576648-washer_leak__top_loader


If the leak is more like a constant drip, a common source of leaks with Whirlpool manufactured top loaders is a leaking drain pump. These pumps are not serviceable and if damaged, must be replaced. The following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3794382-replacing_water_pump_whirlpool_top


Don't forget to check all drain hose connections under the washer and the center tub seal.

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartrsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Htwp1200doww where does fabric softner go


You have to do it manually. Ugh. See below from manual:

Liquid Fabric Softener (Manually add during rinse cycle)
1. Turn OPTIONS knob to FABRIC SOFTENER
2. Measure liquid fabric softener carefully, following instructions on the bottle, and add during the rinse cycle.

OPTIONS (on some models)
Set this option when planning to manually add fabric softener during the rinse cycle or when you use extra detergent or bleach to clean hazily soiled items. It provides an enhanced rinse.

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
