The washer keeps filling (water keeps running) even though it's supposed to be spinning. Might also be filling while agitating.

Could be a failure of the inlet control valve. This is located inside and the hose connectors of the machine are actually part of the valve assembly. They are normally held in by only one or two screws accessible outside the housing but pull the AC plug, and drop the disconnected hoses into a pail or other container. You will have to remove the back panel to do the swap.
These aren't expensive, so replacing it on pure speculation won't cost a great deal of time or money. Many machines use the same part but have your machine model number handy when you call.
You can buy them anywhere that repairs appliances or, if you have one in your area, Johnstone Supply will have them 20-40% cheaper than dealers. Check for a listing them in the white pages or on line.
If you replace it and still have the problem, the program/timer assembly will need replacing and this is much more costly.

My whirlpool washer will not drain or spin, but it will fill and wash


This sounds like you are having a problem with the motor not changing direction. The pump for draining is on the front of the motor and runs even when agitating, just it runs backwards therefore keeping the water in the machine. When the motor changes direction, the pump starts taking water out of the tub and at the same time the transmission changes state from agitate to spin.

This could be a bad motor, a bad timer (not connecting the proper wires to reverse motor direction) or even a connection problem with the wiring harness, though the former two are more likely.

Hope this helps

Washer fills with water then stops, won't agitate or spin


There are two possible causes. The most likely cause is the lid switch, which is supposed to keep you from sticking your hand into the moving basket. On many washers this only keeps the machine from spinning, but on other models it prevents agitating as well. The other possibility is the water level switch, but that usually causes no filling or overfilling if it's bad.

Both parts are available from Sears (www.searspartsdirect.com) and many other online sources. (I normally use the Sears site to find a part number if I don't already know it, then search for that number on Google. It's a great way to find good prices on more costly parts.) There are also a number of sites with detailed information about how to remove the cabinet to get at the parts if you want to try doing it yourself. Replacing these parts is pretty simple if you're comfortable with a screwdriver and have some mechanical ability.

If you'd rather have someone else repair the machine, this would normally be about a 1 hour plus parts charge for an appliance technician. It isn't time for a new washer yet.

if you hear the motor running while it is supposed to be agitating or spinning then it is most likely the direct drive coupling between the motor and transmission.43f18ab.jpg9bd1c44.jpg if you already checked this and think it is a different problem then let me know, i will help you figure it out.  Mike

I think that you mean "Agitate" some of the time that you write "Spin" Yes?
If I understand you correctly, you have no agitation during the "wash" cycle, this is almost certainly a corroded agitator shaft seized up in the transmission.
