Question about Whirlpool CAM2752KQ Top Load Washer

Whirlpool front load washer won't spin - just sometimes

My washer usually doesn;t spin fast enough, but only if we're washing our king size bed sheets. Then, if we put them back in for the "Drain/Spin" option, it still doesn;t spin faste enough. The sheets are extremely wet/heavy. Almost every other load of clothes is fine...no problems with jeans, delicates, towrels, etc. Just sheets. Is a sensor bad?

Most Whirlpool (Hotpoint) machines have "out of balance" sensors that detect very large movements of the drum suspension usually due to a very badly balanced washing load.
This can occur for various reasons but putting large and/or heavy items in can trigger these sensors i,f as the machine starts to spin, the items dont get distributed evenly around the drum. This is more likley with large/heavy items.
The machine will then restrict the spin speed for the remainder of the wash cycle, and once the machine is switched off, the next time the machine is used it returns the spin speed back to normal - but if it detects an out of balance situation, it will again restrict the spin speed.
It sounds to me the machine is acting as designed. You could try positioning the items differently as you load them, and hope they dont end up "all over one side".

SOURCE: whirlpool lhw0050pq washer will not spin

Possible your belt is loose; you have to unscrew the back after disconnecting electrical connection from wall socket. If the belt "gives" more than half an inch, you have to loosen the motor bolts and push motor upwards, then tighten the bolts very well. Try spin only to check, before closing the behind. It shd spin very fast.

Wfmc3200uc101 bosch washer doesnot spin out when a single sweater is in. the drum turns but not at full speed


i have the same problem, what i find helps put a bed sheet in with the sweater to even the load, ( I keep a sheet by the washer for this specifically) and take it off max. spin cycle for the small load (I know this sounds stupid) I have a bosch also and I have problems with small blankets too. This usually helps, but I found that if i do this under the 25 minute quick wash instead of the regular wash it doesn't spin out either, kind of stupid to run a machine with only one sweater for 58 minutes, I would never buy a front loader again, betty

My washer wont spin & drain


when you put it on to drain can you hear a noise from the pump to show its working, if it wont drain it wont spin, if you can hear the pump then there is a blockage somewhere could be in the pump, filter, outlet hose or stanpipe

Washer not finishing it's rinse/spin cycle


Run any load - large or the least bit bulky (like sheets) on the "BULKY" cycle. It takes longer, but the machine completes the wash. This shouldn't be the way it works. I love the Neptune TL for its retro look and lack of Maytag's classic big cranky knob. Too bad it runs like ****.
