Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
Washer 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.
