Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

When on Normal cycle clothes are still sopping wet when wash cycle ends. Also, timer says about 50 minutes for load of wash but is normally now taking 1.5 hrs.

Bought is washer new in 2012. Did not get extended warranty. Contacted Whilrpool on 4/22/15. I was told I needed to buy the super duper warranty to get this fix and was quoted a price of $328. I politely declined and the lady on the other end offered to schedule a standard visit. But, it would be at a price significantly higher than what she quoted. I declined that as well. I only paid $470 for the washer. Back to the problem ...when the Normal cycle ends, clothes are still very wet. I have to then run on Drain & spin for an additional 13 mins. Then clothes are only damp and ready for the dryer. I do not hear any unusual clicking or other abnormal sounds nor do I notice any unusual activity/non-activity. Yes, I have checked the drain hose that is not plugged. Questions: What could be the issue? How do I properly check the "diagnostics" on this unit as Whirlpool's documentation does not show this? Do I access the "brains" of the unit from the back, or by separating the top cover from the sides? Thank you for your time and advice.

Your transmission is starting to go bad. It is not creating enough power to spin the clothes fast enough to dry them. It is cheaper to look for a new washer . To fix the transmission will cost you over 400 I would do light loads until your able to get a new washer

Water not draining out w/ spin cycle


sounds like water may be going out but no spin in last cycle lean washer back and ck underneath for oil leak on top off transmission is a silver colored disk shaped object this is part of clutch if there appears to be a lot of oil on it good chance there is oil on clutch also causing it not yo spin..also ck to see if basket spins after short pause at end of rinse cycle ..start a rinse cycle at setting on timer with lid shut allow to run undisturbed ..once agitation stops in rinse timer should stop then start motor back up to drain ..there should be another short pause then washer should start spinning if does not pause suspect suspect timer if it does pause but doesn't start spinning suspect transmission..remember allow washer to advance by itself DO NOT RAISE LID TO CK..a small load of clothes will let you know if washer has spun
