Check the switch for the lid. the machine will not spin or drain if it thinks the lid is open. use a screwdriver or ink pen to push on the little lever. the lid has a small stick of some sort sticking out. the lever is in the hole that the stick normally goes into. the lever should click each time. if not, replace it. good luck

    if your machine is washing the clothes just fine, then the problem is not the motor or the belt (if you have 1). the most likely suspect is that switch or something around it. 1 of the wires leading to it may be pulled off or broken. or the contacts inside the switch may be bad.

    i suggest pulling out that switch and jumping over it with a piece of wire. you could also just tie the ends of the connections together.

    if that doesn't fix it, then the problem must be within the timer mechanism. the switch is cheaper and easier to diagnose and fix. good luck

It was the lid switch. The two halves came apart which allowed the button not to engage when the door was closed. The plastic retaining pins that held it together broke. I just removed it and used a wire tie or zip strip to hold it together. Worked like a charm.

My washer did fill, but won't spin or drain now and the door won't open


Hi tragz,

If it can't drain, it won't spin. There may be something preventing the pump from draining in the Pump filter. You will need to clean it.

Please follow my below Tip on how to do it:

ACCESS, DRAIN & CLEAN THE DRAIN PUMP FILTER

Wm2455hw will not spin


Make sure door mechanism is working at fine. So next is to check whether the motor tumbles both directions.
The spin bearing might be a problem, but normally you'd hear a problem here first. Have you heard any freight trains passing through the house in the spin cycle?
One thing to check for this problem is the spin speed switch. If the spin speed switch is bad then the control won't know how fast to spin, and so it will just not spin at all.
The drain pump must be draining all the water out. If the water doesn't drain out then the pressure switch won't read empty and that might prevent a spin cycle.
I hope this helps.
Please reply with additional details for further assistance.

Whirlpool washing machine won`t spin or pump out


if youre handy with tools , check out the DRAIN MOTOR PUMP , usually located at the bottom on a side of the washer , it could be clogged with lint or debris , need to open washer , remove the DRAIN MOTOR , inspect inside to remove and clean it , be ready with rags , theres a lot of water that will come out once you remove it . good luck AJ
