Whirlpool won't spin at high speed

I have a Whirlpool top load washer (model LSB6300PWD) that won't spin at high speed when it is full. If you run it empty it spins fine. The pump and drain seem to be fine. Any ideas?

    Thanks for the info. Doesn't make any noises, but last night my wife said she tried a load and this time it wouldn't even agitate. I tried it again and got it to agitate, but the same thing happened with the spin. This time I rotated the tub manually one rotation, reset the timer to spin, and it spun OK. Maybe just coincidence?

Sounds like you may have lost your basket drive and clutch assembly. This is a pretty involved job to replace for sure, and requires you to remove the inner basket, drop the transmission, etc. Does the unit make any wierd noises, like popping or grinding? Does it agitate ok in wash? I would bet almost for sure that its that basket drive and attached sub-pack thats went bad. If you want to try and tackle this yourself, let me know, and will get you directions to do so. Good Luck!!!!

    Like I said, I do believe that your basket drive and clutch assembly has gone out. If you are having issues with agitation, you may have a motor coupler issue (which is cheaper that a basket drive and clutch pack) or a transmission going out (which is a death sentence usually to a washer due to cost). Transmissions run around $175.00 to $200.00 (part number 285515), motor coupler runs about $15.00 to $20.00 (part number 285753A), basket drive's run around $90.00 to $100.00 (part number 285792), and basket drive clutch pack runs aroud $40.00 to $50.00 (part number 285785). These prices do NOT include the friendly service tech's charges to put them on, and labor rates are a little high for this sort of job (motor coupler replacement would be the cheapest, our price is $100.00, but have heard that Sears charges around $175.00). Hopefully, you can maybe find out yourself. You could take the cabinet off (remove the caps off the console, take scres out, pop gold clips, then lift the whole cabinet off) or pull the unit away from the wall, then tilt it back, look underneith the unit, you will see the motor, then the transmission, in between the two, you will see a small round rubber disk in a small hole. If you see a lot of rubber dust, or if that coupler has tons of play when you move it, it needs to go for sure. Let me know what you found out, and if you want to continue with the DIY, we'll lead ya through it. Good Luck!!!

Hello.

Whirlpool washers are available in many colors and with different options, including various tub sizes, front or top load styles, a fabric care system, high efficiency wash features and energy, time and water sensors. The washers may be purchased in department stores, home repair stores and online. Many are Energy Star rated. However, the washing machine may malfunction occasionally and not agitate or spin. If this occurs, some troubleshooting steps may be useful in solving the problem.

1 sure the washer has electrical power and is connected to a grounded electrical supply. Replace or reset the circuit breaker or fuse if needed, particularly in event of a recent power outage. Make sure the washer lid is closed tightly before use; the washer won't work if the lid is open.

2 void selecting the following cycles: "Extra Low,, "Low," "No Spin", "Delicate," "Casual/Perm Press" or "Hand Washables." All of these cycles use little to no spinning or agitating during the cycle. Select the highest possible spin cycle for the fabrics being washed.

3 pen the washer lid and redistribute the load; unbalanced loads may cause the washer to stop or slow down. Add additional items if only one large item,
such as a rug or blanket, is in the washer.

4 Use only the recommended amount of laundry detergent, as excess sussing can reduce the overall spin speed or cause the washer to stop agitating. If the Whirlpool washer is a high-efficiency model, use only high-efficiency laundry detergent.

5 Examine the drain hose and straighten if kinked. Remove any possible obstructions and ensure the end of the hose is no more than 96 inches from the floor, as this will cause water to flow back into the washing machine.

Thanks.

Washer will not high speed spin.


After determining that the motor is running at high RPM and nothing is dragging on the inner basket, check to see that the brake is releasing properly. If not, install clutch kit, p/n 285785 (around $50)
