Dosen't spin unless i open and then close the lid.


Possible there could be some loose connections on the panel board or the controller unit circuit which gets activated when the door is shut. Try to tap instead of opening the door to confirm a loose joint. If not it is related to a RESET fault within the controller , please check the door switch and connections to the controller.

Admiral washer will not spin but does agitate.


If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely -if it's frozen or stiff- replace it.

a.- It doesn't pump or spin If it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:
a.1. If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.
a.2. If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.


b.- It pumps, but doesn't spin If your washer pumps out the water but doesn't spin, check these:
b.1. The lid switch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn't spin. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
b.2 The motor coupler may be broken. Many Whirlpool®-manufactured washers use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. You may need to replace it.
b.3 A belt may be broken. Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.)
b.4 The clutch may be worn. If your washer is a GE, it may use a clutch to come up to the proper spin speed. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the unit from spinning well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician.
b.5 The drive motor may be defective. Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor.
b.6 The transmission may not be shifting properly. Older washers produced by Whirlpool® have a transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective, the unit may drain the water but not spin. This is a complex system, if your washer has a shifter problem, you may want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it.
b.7 The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized. These components allow the inner tub to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this is the problem, you usually hear a loud sound during the spin cycle. Call a qualified appliance repair technician.

c.- It spins only with the lid closed For safety, washing machines are made so that they spin only with the lid closed. The lid switch prevents the spinning action when the lid is up

Roper rab4132hq0 washer does not spin consistently. Most of the time, the spin will not engage, this isn't just for the spin cycle, but for the spinning during the wash and rinse cycles as well....


Sounds like a bad gearcase.You have a machine that is direct drive. The motor is hooked directly to the gearcase by a little coupler. Look under and make sure the coupler is in place if it is then you need gearcase.Again the coupler is located between the motor and gearcase. Hope this helped.

Have a kenmore elite washing machine which i purchased in 2005. The machine will stop in mid cycle and will start again when the door (top load) is opened and shut again. Could this be a problem with the...


what cycle does it happen in?close the lid and open it a few times,does it make a clicking sound,if it does i would say the switch is good,also you can do this,next time it happens open the lid carefully without banging the machine so you don't disturb anything,get a screw driver and stick it in the hole and see if it runs, if it does i'd say it's the switch,but i've seen this before right before it goes into the spin cycles,the clutch doesn't fall in the tranny. and when the lid is opened and closed the clutch falls.keep an eye on it and see where on the timer this happens,make a mark and see if it does it in the same spot,depending on how hard you close the lid it could be the switch,the timer sticking,i've tapped the timer when something like this happens and it sometimes starts or the clutch in the tranny,when you close the lid did you ever notice if you heard a clunking sound and then it starts to spin..also if you open the top console,unplug the lid switch and stick a jumper wire in the two outside holes of the part you unplug,the lid switch is closest to the right side clip and it's a white connector, you can bypass the switch to check it, all it is is a safety so the machine won't run with the lid open or instead of doing that you can stick a screw driver into the hole and let the machine run like that if you think it's the switch,let me know what you find.

Whirlpol top loader does not spin all the time


Since you did not mention the age of this unit I am assuming that it has been in service for some time. My first thought is that you have an intermittent lid switch. You can test this yourself by setting the timer on spin and then open and close the lid at aout 10 second intervals making sure the tub spins and stops. It should spin lid closed and stop lid open each time. If it does not spin each time then you have a lid switch problem. If it does spin each time then I suspect that your spin tube clitch pads are getting worn. You cna remove the back panel cover and watch this again with the timer in spin. Keep you hands out of the inside rear of the maching and look When the lid is closed the spin tube should be lowering slightly onto the drive plate. If it appears to be slipping quite a bit then the 3 pads are worn out and the spin tube will have to be replaced. On other thing to note is there are 2 solenoids on a post on the top of the transmission. On the one controls the spin cycle you should see the actuator lift and fall as you have some one open or close the lid in the spin cycle. If the actuator is lifting and the spin tube clutch pads are dropping onto the clutch plate then again the 3 clutch pads have worn out. I hope this was of some help in answering your question.
