When you lift the lid, did the motor stop? Do you know if it agitates? If the motor runs and there is no agitaion or spin, check the coupler connecting the motor and transmission. If it agitates and does not spin, it could be a basket drive assembly. The lid switch can also affext the spin cycle. Many reasons why it won't spin. These are just ideas to look into.

Maytag Whirlpool Super Capacity Ultimate Care Washer, it goes through all the cycles except the spin cycle. Will not spin.


Most likely the lid switch or the motor coupler. Is it just doing nothing when time to drain and spin leaving it full of water? If so, replace lid switch. If it's pumping water out and you hear motor running, but it's not spinning, then motor coupler is most likely broken. In second scenario, also could be clutch or other transmission problem.

Water doesn't spin out at end of cycle which means I have to open the trap and hand empty three to four gallons of water before the door will release.and the clothes still have tons of water in them.


Hi there,

Well first of all you can check motor coupler, to test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning: 
If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine.

Then check 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, then you need to replace it.

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Hello, looks like your lid switch is on it's way out, replace it...you will find it normally about half way down under the lid. If not there you will find it in the control panel on the right side next to the water level control. The reason it works some times and not others is because some times it fails to push the lid switch down far enough to engage. the lid switch is a safety divice inteneded to stop you opening the lid while in a high speed spin. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment again. Mike

My Kenmore 22622 doesn't spin.


hello, i can help you.

If your washer won't spin, check these:

It doesn't pump or spin
It pumps, but doesn't spin
It spins only with the lid closed
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:

  • 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.

  • 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.

It pumps, but doesn't spin If your washer pumps out the water but doesn't spin, check these:

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.)

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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.

Washer will spin but won't drain automatically


are you sure it spins? usually something is in the pump like a sock. You could remove the front and take the hose off the pump to see if its clear. It also sounds like it could be the lid switch. if you have to close it make sure you hear a clicking noise from the lid switch.

Kenmore Washing stops at spin cycle.


It sounds like your lidswitch. If it spins after you open and shut the lid, you must be jarring the lidswitch. This is a safety so kids can't open the machine while it is spinning fast. Just replace the lidswitch.

Drain/Spin won't work unless lid is lifted up


Curdy, it almost sounds like your lid switch is loose or fractured and the lid actuator is not making the switch. Check this out first and post back...Catriver.
