Hi.

It is a drain problem. The machine timer won't advance to spin until it detects that drain is complete. For this reason the machine is also not spinning.

Check lid switch first, this is testted with a multimeter.
Ensure that the drain hose at the back is not clogged or kinked.
Access the drain pump and undo the hose attached to the pump, see if there is any blockage in there.
The pump can be fully tested by a technician energizing it directly.
If the drain system is fine check the pressure switch that detects when the drain is complete, this should not be the case.
If all the rest is OK, replace the control board.

You can find parts and diagrams for most models here.

Regards.

Whirlpool ultimate care heavy duty leaks underneath, not agitate or spin. only humms and fills up


Again!! Any washer that does not drain has a bad Drain Pump. Very Common. I see this in 40-50% of the problems. Replace the drain pump and your washer will be very happy

Phillips Whirlpool Ultimate Care II won't spin very quickly


If this is a top loader it is possible that you have a bad clutch. sometime when your transmission leaks oil it will get into the clutch and this will cause a slower spin and possibly no spin. Tip the washer back just enough so you can see under the washer. Is there a orange/yellow sticky substance under there? If so this is trany fluid.

Whirlpool ultimate care II will not spin


You said,washer is full of water and will not spin. You hear the lid switch clicking. When you start it on spin cycle and hear a hum, the tub moves a couple of inches and then stops...shortly after it shuts off.


Some reasons this may happen
Washer won’t drain or spin
n
1. Is the drain hose clogged, or the end of the drain hose
more than 72 inches (183 cm) above the floor?
2. Is the lid open? ............Also the lid switch can be faulty!!
The lid must be closed during operation.
3. Is there excessive sudsing?
Always measure detergent. Follow manufacturer’s directions.
4 If you have very soft water, you might need to use less
detergent.

Sounds to me like the lid switch can be faulty!!Then it acts like the lid is open.
Huuum
