The problem is almost certainly with the pump. If a mechanical type(connected to the main wash motor) look for ware and tear or a restriction in the pump structure. or if a stand alone pump, check pipes from top to bottom for restriction and or check for obstruction in that pump.

SOURCE: replacing spin belt whirlpool clothes washer

There is indeed a drive belt to the imperial 70. Problem more likely is in the 'wig-wag' unit that engages and disengages the spin clutch and the agitator drive

SOURCE: Maytag clothes washer, with pump and belt replaced in Nov. 2007, clothes were too wet after spin cycle

The start of the spin cycle is dependent on the pump pumpin out water and the later level switch sensing that the water level is low enough. The water level switch has (usually) a clear tube connected to it and is found in the control panel. You will want to check continuity at different times. First you will fill the tub to the highest water level. Then unplug the machine. By screwing in the screw on the water level switch. Scew it all the way in. then you will check continutity. there should be no cont. between green and brown. and there should be cont between green and black or yellowblack. Do this continuity test with the wires off the switch. Once this test is complete, reattach the wires and plug in the machine and set the timer on spin or drain. When the tub is pumped dry, stop the spin cycle and unplug the washer and do the continuity test again. This time you should have continutiy from green to brown. and no continuity from green to black or yellowblack. Now when i mention the colors that means the placement where those wires were. Make note before you remove them so that you can get them back to place. If you do not get these readings, the water level switch is bad, or there is a leak in the air pressure tube leading to it. At that point I would replace the entire switch and tube. I wish you the best of luck.

Spin. Working short time do not put cloth water out


Sounds like the belt that spins the washing drum is slipping. It my need to be adjusted or replaced, or try washing a smaller load of laundry.

I have a GE Adoration WHDRE526E1WW top load washer. It drains and hits spin but will not spin. Lid switch seems to work. When tested the motor kicks on but will not turn the tub. Few times I manually spun...


It really sounds like the belt. You say it's in good shape but if it's loose or shiny from not having proper tension it wont have enough friction between the belt and pulley to actually work. If you've ever tried to move the drum when its full of clothes and water you know how much force id needed to function. Double check that belt tension and working surface.

Why is it that my washer is not completing the spin cycle,it is still very wet when it stop??


Hello there and welcome to fixya
The clothes are wet after spinning When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these: 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.
If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component 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. When that happens, you need to replace it completely.
Spin cycle
If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component.
Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.
Siphoning
If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess.
Water-inlet valve
Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

Washer wont spin


You may have some small piece of clothing stuck in the water pump. Pull clothes out, empty water out, turn over and remove pump and check for obstructions. If nothing in there see if it is frozen from moving, if not belt may be loose by being streched. Replace belt if needed.
