Whirlpool gold top load washer (7 months old) won't agitate or spin

During rinse cycle my husband inadvertantly stopped machine and then restarted and it immediately started to empty and made a strange noise and would not spin. Afterwards I tried several water levels, cycles ,etc and could not get it to agitate or spin. Fills and drains with no problems. Can we fix this or is he in big trouble?

It sounds like the motor drive coupler has broken. This means the motor is no longer turning the gearcase, but it is turning the pump. It will be repaired under warranty if it is only 7 months old. You should have a full one year warranty on the washer. If not, he can probably fix it, but it will need a new coupler. He can tilt the machine back and see the coupler between the motor and transmission from underneath. I can walk you through replacing it if you want, but I wouldn't recommend it if it is still under warranty. There could possibly be something more major wrong that has caused it to break and some of the factory servicers are real picky about customers working on a machine under warranty. If you need it running tonight, he may be in trouble.

Post back if you need further help or have more questions.

Whirlpool washer ties clothes in knots on spin cycle

Its the wash or rinse cycle that is tieing the clothes in knots not the spin cycle. Try putting less shirts in. It happens because of the agitation during the wash. Or pin the sleeves together.

Washer agitates off balance and makes a loud banging sound until movement stops at the beginning of rinse cycle, advice?

If it makes this noise in the agitate mode and not during the spin cycle, I would suspect that the transmission is going.

Will not spin on any rinse cycle

Hi, This washer does not have a belt. While the washer is agitating, if you lift the lid will it stop? Some models will agitate but not spin if the lid is up. It sounds to me like the lid switch might be going bad.
If you will get me a model #, I can look this up for you and give you a better idea.

Washing machine does not drain during rinse cycle?

Turn timer to rinse cycle. let fill up and agitate. when it stops agitating it should pause then start to pump water out. After about 2 minutes it should pause for 3-5 seconds then start again and spin. If it starts the first time and never stops it will just continue to pump but no spin. The 3-5 second pause allows the transmission to shift to spin. If it does not do this the problem is your timer. You may need to do this a few times to verify the problem.

If that is not the problem it is likely that you need a new clutch. You will need a technician to install a new clutch for you

Whirlpool top Loading washing machine won't spin on spin cycle

If the washer won't finish a spin cycle, it probably means that your timer went bad or stalled. You can take the control panel off and look at the contacts for scorching or corrosion.
