Question about Washing Machines
Washer drains properly after rinse cycle. The problem is that the drum does not spin, but the center washboard does spin. What could be wrong?
Please reply. Thank You.
It would help to know what washing machine we're dealing with.....but I'll just assume it's a standard Kenmore(whirlpool) direct drive top loader. If so, you most likely have a broken motor coupler, which is located between the motor and transmission, that's most likely, although you could have a very bad clutch or tranny too. Check the coupler first. Hope that helps.

It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.
