SOURCE: washer wont run spin cycle model 417

The reason for your washing machine not to spin would be of a faulty motor coupling.

If the washer will fill and drain, but won't agitate or spin, you may have a broken motor coupling. The noise of the motor engaging, lack of agitation and ability to still drain are the usual symptoms. This is a common fail item with this model washer through normal wear and tear. Newer versions of the coupler are more resilient and resist breaking

The motor coupling is located between the drive motor and the transmission and takes the place of a drive belt. They do wear out and can break. The replacement part number is included in the link I provided and is an improved upgraded coupling that is more resilient. It should last longer. If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

A replacement coupler can be purchased on line at for about $11. Just use the part number in the link and "Search by Part Number" for your search criteria.

Thank you for contacting

SOURCE: front load whirlpool washer wont drain.

I don't know if this will help you, but we have a Haier HNS1460TVE and this is apparently made by Whirlpool ... we have a similar problem in that if the load is not full it will not spin, it stops at 9 minutes and just gets stuck !!!

We have found that emptying the machine & turning it off and on, with the door shut, resets the machine ... hope that helps you !!

SOURCE: Whirlpool washer M#WTW4950XW Will go threw a wash cycle but at the end my clothes are still wet,but if I run a rinse and spin cycle it works fine. What is causing this?

You have a faulty actuator on the bottom of the transmission that will need to be replaced. Here is the part to order.

My whirlpool wtw4950xw2 top loader washing machine sounds like a jet taking off during spin cycle ... How can I fix it ?

You can unbalance the load more to get a quieter spin, but otherwise you may have a worn out gear system that produces more noise than the spinning tub itself. Check with service to determine the exact cause of the noise.

Filled but wont spin. brand new model wtw4950x

Sounds like a bad safety switch / lid switch. These new machines have magnetic proximity switches used on the lid to make sure the lid is closed before the machine will spin or cycle. Part is usually around 25.00 at appliance parts house for walk in customers. You would need someone familiar with electricity to replace it as it deals with 120 volts.

My whirlpool h2 low wtw4950xw wont spin

If you hear the motor running but only the water pumps out, you probably need a new coupler. These are very cheap and easy to change, if you're mechanically inclined.

Getting into the cabinet is a matter of two screws, two clips, a wiring disconnect, and enough space to tilt the cabinet off the base of the unit and set it aside.

Once inside, you'll see the pump in the front, mounted on the motor. The pump is held on with 2 clips, and can be swung aside without disconnecting the hoses. The motor is held on by 2 clips and 2 screws, and has one wiring plug. Once it's out, you can see the coupler, which probably has had the pins sheared off the plates, and some rubber remnants. Carefully pry off and replace all the parts, being careful to align the pins when re-installing the motor.

Re-assembly is the reverse of dis-assembly. You can test with the cabinet off if you place a small jumper wire across the pins of the plug that hooks into the cabinet for the lid switch.

Wont drain and spin

Check door switch: If the lid switch is bad it will not drain or spin. Try this test: With lid open let it finish wash cycle. Press lid switch down with screwdriver. Washer should begin draining. Release switch. Motor should stop. Press switch a second time. Washer should start spinning as it continues to drain. If motor doesn't come on while lid switch is pressed, replace the switch. OR
Pl click if helped.
