Hi. This is a possible broken belt. You will need to access the drive assembly to confirm. The symptoms you have posted will often lead to a separated belt.

NOTE(IF this is a top loader, and you are hearing noise during the spin attempt, this will lead to failed motor coupler. Please disregard this note if the unit is a front-loader)

How to fix, no spin on Hotpoint WDF740?


Long shot guess here but ...have you checked / replaced the carbon brushes of the electric motor ???? common problem I have had before.
If it is not the brushes then it could be segments of the motor burnt out which could be expensive.

If the machine wasn't excessively noisy before and when you select spin only you can't hear the motor running its likely to be the carbon brushes in the motor worn down till they no longer contact stick a new set in if the carbon length sticking out the brass holder is less than around half an inch long

Check the belt that spins the drum for proper tension. If it has stretched you will have a hassle. Often you can loosen a belt pulley and put some extra tension on belt, restore friction and operation till belt is replaced with a nice, new tight one.

Whirl pool washing machine doesnt spin dry


If it wont spin at all, check the lid switch. If it will spin but not fast enough to spin the water out of the clothes, it sounds like the clutch could be slipping.

Wx46500 whirl[pool, the belt below the drum stopped causing a pile of black rubber on the floor. hoe do you change this belt? what caused the problem? Is it worth fixing


Either the belt was worn and has started to slip under load or the drum bearing has started to sieze up.

If you can turn the big wheel on the back of the drum easily it is more than likely that the belt has become slack and the motor pulley has been spinning around on it without gaining traction

Whirl pool duet


Lets run a diagnostic test selecting drain/spin, on spin speed select no spin then press prewash quickly twice, watch for F error codes and write them down, press prewash again to advance past error code seen. Then post back because there are several issues here that can cause this, motor sensor errors, serial communication errors, pump and drain siphon issues.
