check your lid switch

SOURCE: Kenmore 20702 Top Load Washer Problem

First check the lid switch. Its a little slot inside the top panel and when the door is closed it has a prong that pushes the switch down when closed. It is a safety feature. If you can find this press the slot with a screwdriver or something and listen for a clicking sound.It is also possible that one of the wires has come off, so that may need to be looked at too. Also check the lid to see if the prong has been broken off. If you have both of these things checking good, then it may be a more complicated issue like power to the wig wag coils, or a timer. We can however eliminate the motor, belt and water pump as these all work. I would put my money on a simple lid switch problem though.

SOURCE: My Whirlpool washer won't agitate or spin . But it does drain the water.

i also had the same problem, and it ended up being the coupler. It was not hard to replace, it cost me about 19.00. I didn't follow full recomende instructions. I tipped the washer backwards. Removed the drain pump and the motor itself. Then I removed the old coupling and placed the new one. The washer is working like new...

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: doesnt agitate or spin.

Mine is 1 1/2 years old and this worked for me

unplug from power for at least 30 seconds

turn the dial to spin but don't pull out

plug back in to power and open and shut completely so switch is engaged solidly 11 times in 15 seconds.

pull out knob to turn on

This should clear a error code.

hope it helps!

Whirlpool Cabrio Washer does not spin the water completly out of the clothes


probably not getting into high speed spin mode
they spin slow in the initial stages to allow the clothes to become evenly distributed then after the water is removed they pick up speed
It is possible a problem in the program board not advancing to high speed
Call in a technician for a proper diagnosis and a quote

Whirlpool cabrio washer no longer spins


Most likely control board. On a cabrio main power controls everything. If it agitate and drains and does not spin that's what it will be especially if there are no codes. Only other thing that could prevent spin, is a bad lid lock. But if there are no codes it a board.

Whirlpool washer model lsr8233eqo


So when the cycle first starts, it will fill and agitate and spin. But then on the rinse cycle it stops?

I have a Whirlpool Ultimate Care II washing machine (model LSN1000JQ0). The washer will fill with water and begin to agitate. Shortly after it will stop and will not drain. I've cleaned all hoses


see the next steps and use the common sense: God bless you
It spins, but doesn't pump If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out. To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port. Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job. If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump. It doesn't spin or pump 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. It pumps, but the water returns If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle, your washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck in the drain?) Also, check for these problems: If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess. If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.

Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SB2 won't spin or agitate. We bought it used and they swore it worked. It goes from 45min and drops down to 3mins. It never completes it's load. And after it beeps with a OL on


Hi.

Most spin troubles are caused by drain or pressure switch problems, but it does not look like that is your case. Check for blockage in drain system and clean the hose connected to pressure switch. As said I do not think that this is the problem but the drain system must be checked as part of troubleshooting.

OL code in fact is not related to drain problems, but to motor and mechanical problem. OL is returned when the washer is overloaded and the motor cannot turn the basket properly.

The first step to diagnose the problem is removing the basket and looking for problems under the basket (e.g. broken part or clothes stuck under the tub). Here a document showing how to.

If parts under the basket are OK the next step will consist in testing the motor. The motor can be tested reading impedance at its phase terminal and across the stator winding. The Cabrio's motor should read about 30/32 Ohms across its phase contacts.

If the motor and the rest are OK the problem is usually the RPS sensor that detects the rotational speed of the motor.

Regards.

Not spinning or draining, only fills and agitates


the mixing valve in the rear needs to be repaced-it controls the water flow Also sounds like the clutch of the transmision maybe be a factor if the machine doesn't spin

Will fill and drain, not agitate or spin though


I am having the exact same problem with the same brand machine.  I put in a load of clothes to soak till the morning, but in the morning, the washing machine would only fill, spin, and drain.  The agitator would not wash the clothes, so they came out with the soap of course still crusted in.

Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SW1: Won't drain


The washer drew half a tub of water on the "Bulky items" cycle, and stopped. All the lights on the cycle dial light up and flash, the machine beeps and the me error message in the "estimated time remaining" field is "Ld". I've tried to shut the machine down and change the cycle to "drain and spin" but it will not agitate, won't drain or spin.
