More than likely, you have a broken motor coupling. Failure to agitate or spin accompanied by the sound of the motor running with no tub action are some of the symptoms you can experience with this problem. Just to be sure...the following link explains the symptoms of a failed motor coupling and how to diagnose the problem:

If you determine the coupler to be defective, the next link explains how to access the coupler and replace it:

The part number is included with the instructions I provided. Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

All these sites are reputable and offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites I listed also include helpful exploded view parts diagrams to assist you in locating and properly identifying the parts you need. If you do not wish to order parts on line, use the part numbers I provided and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. The coupler is usually sold as part of their in-store inventory. The average cost of a motor coupling is about $15.

If you have any questions, please post back with your complete MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

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

I have a whirlpool ultimate care 2 top load washer no spin


Sounds as if the drive hub which the tub is attached to maybe free spinning. Not an expensive part but does require a special tool called a spanner wrench to remove and replace.

Water pump must not be running. Check if the belt is not broken or came off or the dial switch is bad or the clutch is not engaging.

Good luck
