First test if it is a problem with the lid switch. There are many YouTube videos on how to take apart the control panel and test the pins with a multimeter. On my washer, the lid switch passed the multimeter test but I did my test below and determined it was still the lid switch that was the problem.
When it gets to the point where the washer is supposed to drain and then spin-rinse but doesn't do anything, open the lid and push down on the lid switch lever with a small solid stick (chopstick, screwdriver, etc..) where the lid switch pin would normally push down on until you hear a click. If it suddenly drains, then the lid switch needs to be replaced. If you're lucky, it's a $6 part on ebay and 15 minutes of your time. If nothing happens, then find the YouTube video on testing the lid switch with a multimeter.

sounds like you need to replace the spin tube if your motor coupling is all right and nothing is jamming your pump

SOURCE: Washing Machine wont spin/agitate

The most common problem is the lid switch. with a screw driver in hand open the lid and press down on the lid switch. sometimes the mounting screws will crack the switch housing and the striker can't move the actuator far enough. I am interested in the clicking noise, as this could indicate a pump issue or a sock seizing up the tub.

SOURCE: My whirlpool washer will not drain.

There may be something caught in the impeller of the water pump. Check the drain filter for plugging.

This is a direct drive washing machine and if it fills and drains but doesn't agitate and spin, the problem is a broken motor coupler as indicated by the gear-like sound sliding by each other which means the motor is running. The machine drains because the drain pump is directly coupled with the rear spline of the motor. Replacing the motor coupler should solve the problem.

Disconnect power then release the console from the top of the cabinet. Pull or pry off the end caps then remove the screw that secures the console to the cabinet top. Once the screws are removed, pull forward and up on the console and lay it back on the hinges.

Disconnect the lid switch harness connector by pressing on the tab located in the middle and pulling it up.

The cabinet is attached to the rear of the washer by two brass-colored retaining clips. Insert a flat blade screwdriver into the turned-up edge of the clip, located on both sides, and then pry back to release the clip from the slot in the cabinet.

Open and hold the lid while grabbing the cabinet front opening then tilt the top of the cabinet toward you by pulling the cabinet away from the base. This releases the front and back slots of the cabinet from the tabs in the front and back of the base.

With the cabinet removed, pry the clips securing the pump to the motor off and remove the pump.

Disconnect the motor harness then remove the screw securing the bottom clip holding the motor and remove the clip. Hold the motor from the bottom while loosening the screw securing the top clip holding the motor. Remove the clip then pull the motor out of the washer.

Remove the broken coupler parts from the transmission and the motor shaft then tap the new coupler parts in place or until the splines are even with the edge of the coupler.

Remove the motor mounting plate to remove the coupler part in the transmission side more easily.

Once the coupler parts are properly installed, put the rubber grommet into the coupler in the motor then line up the remaining slots on the grommet with the coupler prongs in the transmission and put them together.

Secure the motor with the clips and the clips with the screws then reconnect the motor wiring harness to the motor terminals and reinstall the pump in reverse order of the removal steps.

Bring the cabinet to the front of the washer then slide the front bottom rail of the cabinet under the rail at the base of the machine then lay down the cabinet into position. Make sure the slots in the cabinet sit into the tabs at the base of machine.

Reconnect the lid switch harness then push the retaining clips back down into position to secure the cabinet to the rear of the machine. Reinstall and secure the console to complete the repair.

Whirlpool duet fw95hedco washer won't spin at max speed & leaves all clothes wet. No error codes during tech diagnostic visit. Washer only 18 months old.


Possible Defective washer transmission. Do you overload the washer with heavy items like towels or blue jeans very often? That can cause early failure.

My washer won't spin. There is a coin stuck inside


If the coin is in between the 2 drums but is free floating you amy be able to get it by removing th bottom drain hose from the drum but this can become a pain unless you are lucky as the coin will move with the machine tipped over. the other way is to remove the heating element while the machine is upright and use a stick or a grabber to get it out.

My washer will not spin, it sounds like it's trying to spin but it won't spin and if i turn the barrell by hand it spins so it's not frozen or anything. Any suggestions?


Hi mwilczewsk,

I believe your drain pump filter is just clogged. The drain pump is trying to pump the water out before the Spin cycle, but can't. Usually this is caused by a foreign object that is obstructing the impeller. See my tip on how to access, drain & clean the Drain Pump Filter:

ACCESS, DRAIN & CLEAN THE DRAIN PUMP FILTER

After this, the Spin cycle will run, after the drainage procedure. If it does not, then you may need to replace the Drain Motor. Which is a easy task.

Kind Regards :-)
