Whirlpool Washing machine top load

My fiance's grandmother's washing machine will pump water into the tub, but not out. I do not hear the motor engage in any cycle. I think she needs a new drive motor. Does that sound right to you? I replaced the coupling about a year ago and it had been fine ever since, until yesterday. Any help?

It sounds like ti could be the lid switch. Some whirlpool models will fill with the lid open. even before cheking the switch for continuity open and close the lid and listen for the "click". Ifyou hear the click then check the switch for continuity.

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

Some problems that can occur with your top-loading washing machine are:

There's an error code on the digital display

It doesn't work at all
It won't drain
It doesn't spin
It doesn't agitate
It's noisy
It leaks
It's off balance
There's no hot water
There's no cold water
It's slow to fill
There's no water at all
The clothes are wet after spinning
The cycle doesn't advance
There's no delicate or regular spin or agitate
It's overfilling
It's underfilling
The water temperature is incorrect

Washing machine won't always spin on its own

This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

Enter your model number and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Since it will spin on lighter loads, the problem points to the clutch.

When the washer goes into spin mode, the motor is reversed to spin the pump and a clutch on top of the transmission engages to spin the tub.

Following is a description of how to access the clutch and check the clutch bands.

Sears and Whirlpool have a replacement parts kit for the clutch.

If the bands look OK, the problem could be in the neutral drain inside the transmission.

I was washing pillows and water just overflowed - I'm not sure from where. I think the bottom of the machine. Just a little bit of water. Did I ruin the motor?

If you let the tub fill, then put the pillows in, you may have caused the water level to overflow the outer tub somewhat. If you didn't smell smoke or hear any frying sounds, the motor is probably ok. Does the washer seem to operating normally?

Whirlpool top loading washing machine

Maybe the motor is shot, maybe the electronics are messed up. You might be able to siphon the water out of the tub.
