SOURCE: Doesn't spin the clothes dry on the final spin but spins at high revolutions without a load of clothes

I have read that if the pump is not draining the tub completely, there is an interlock that prevents the high speed spin from engagin. I have had debris caught in my pump several times (kids!!) with similar issues. There is a trap on the line leading from the tub to the pump which is "supposed" to capture debris, but it doesn't work all that well. Check your pump.....

May tag front loader is not draining all water from drum when washing clothes. What could cause that to happen?

Either the controller is not working properly or the spin cycle is not turning the drum fast enough to extract the water. Slipping belt?

Older Whirlpool front loader machine busted belt

it sounds like your bearings have seized and the reason that the drum is turning from the front but not from the pulley at the back is your "spider" or the y shaped metal support that connects the drum to the shaft that has the pulley on it is broken. this is a difficult repair which usually takes me about 3hrs. now you say that the machine is tripping your safety switch,i think that the steel drum, when it broke the support damaged the element .has it been noisy on spin? to repair this problem you need quite a few parts. now to verify that the drum has separated from the support is to turn the drum from the front and if the pulley at the back does not move; then the support is broken. hope this helps. please reply for further help if needed. good luck

Loud clanking noise during spin cycle. Will not

If it is a front loader, then remove the rear panel, remove the belt, and soin drum by hand, if it feels rough, or is noisy and rumbling, then the main drum bearings have failed.
This is a major repair.

Front loader washer machine not rotating.

Fisrt, see if you can rotate it by hand, BOTH directions. It should have some resistance. If you can spin it and when you stop pushing it will turn a full turn, your drum belt is too loose. If the belt is good and tight, it will spin less than one half rotation, there is probably something blocking one of the wheels that the drum rides on.

Whirlpool Duet Front Loader won't get up to spin speed

Careful of overloading the front-loading washers. Too much of this will result in the bearings in the drum to go bad. When this happens, the rpms on the drum slow down due to belt slack. You can only see this with the back off of the unit and in the middle of the cycle. They do not sell replacement'll have to buy the whole drum (bearings pressed inside) and for 1/2 the cost of a new washer. I hate front-loaders. I'll never buy one again.
