Washing machine won't spin

I have a Whirlpool Stylemaster 4217141 and it won't spin. I understand that it could be the belt, but I'm not very mechanical and not sure what bolts or screws to remove from the back of the machine. Please help.

I think it's the capacitor. The capacitor live under the top of the washing machine, two screws, and measures about 7"x2". The capacitor gives the drum An extra 'bump' when all the weight is in It. Remove the capacitor with a pair of pliers or a spanner but under NO circumstances, touch the two connections at the to of the unit, you will get one hell of a shock! Run the machine empty with the top off and it should run properly.Then refix the top. Job done,

Whirlpool stylemaster 4217141 REV A Agitator/spin cycle broken upper agitator spins by hand but tub won't spin


open the lid and get a model #, sound like all you need is agit dogs # 80040. then remove top of the agitator, could be a softener dispenser. under that you will find a plastic cap, pull up with needle nose pliers. under that you will find a 7/16 or 1/2 bolt, remove the bolt and the agitator can be lifted off. the agitator can now be split into to pieces, turn the top half over and the assy with the agit dgs will fall out. simply replace and reassemble and DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN BOLT. just snug it up. should be fine.

Whirlpool Stylemaster 4217141 tub not moving wash/spin cycles


Sounds like the drive belt is broken or very loose. Take off the back and check the belt. If loose or missing, tighten or replace. This is usually done by loosening the motor support bolts and moving the motor until the belt is tight, then re-tighten the bolts. Replace belt in the same way.

Spinning doesn't take place during spin cycle


One possible problem is the door interlock switch. This switch prevents spinning when the door/lid is open. If the switch is bad (open/off all the time) it sends a false signal that the door is open and washer will not spin.

Does the machine just sit there when it's not spinning or does it sound like it's trying to spin but can't?
