Question about Washing Machines
Hi! please help. I'm a recently unemployed Mom with a Whirlpool "Thin Twin" (stackable washer/dryer) that I got with the house about 5 years ago (so its 5+ years old).
At the end of any of the wash cycles, it is suppose to spin the excess water out of the clothes. Even though the motor is running (it sounds like its trying), the inside part does not spin; leaving the clothes too sopping wet and heavy to dare try to dry.
Sounds like the the motor belt is worn or off. Try a new belt, or check the drain pump filter for clogs.
If you've got a handy friend, it's easy to check these... remove the back of the washer (about 12 srews) and check for black dust inside, or a belt hanging or lying on the bottom.
To check the drain pump filer screen, look for the drain hose, follow it into the back of your washer and down to a plastic bow looking unit. There should be a round cover with a kind of handle on it. remove the cover, (water may run out... have a few towels handy) clean off lint etc. and put back together. Try again...
