Your machine most probably has had water in the spin bearing. The seal has worn and allowed water to rust the ball bearings which are no longer smooth...Hence the noise! A fairly major job which could also need a new shaft and inner drum. Get quotes, but be prepaired. Too much detergent can also speed up seal failure......Good luck....Nomess

Whirlpool AWM 312 front loading washing machine motor does not spin.


Hi Sachinl, Before you check out the link below read how To perform the Master Reset, carefully unplug the washing machine from the power outlet and leave it unplugged for one minute. After one minute is up, plug the washer cord back into the wall. Next, open and close the door of the washing machine 6 times within 12 seconds to send a "reset" signal to all the components.(This is a common fix that many appliance repair mechanics use - it works on about 50% of all washing machines.) Once the reset has been completed set the washer to do a small load with no clothes in the washer. See if the washer goes through with the cycle as normal. If the washer performs correctly, then it has been reset and is fixed. If not refer to more troubleshooting techniques and causes of problems below.
If that did not solve the problem then it may be the "Lid Switch". Top loading washing machines that have a faulty lid switch will not turn the agitator and the spin cycle will not start. However on some washing machine models it will still agitate but not spin. To properly check this you must remove the lid switch.

Spin cycle doesn't work


It sounds like the rear bearing has gone bad, was the machine making any loud noises before? Can you move the tub with your hand?

Whirlpool Washing Machine AWM 029 is not draining


Hi.
I assume you have checked to see if the pump is working,
Select drain and spin, if water does not go away, then you have a pump problem, which will stop the programme completing.
Please leave feedback.
Thanks

AWM 8163 Whirlpool washing machine


hi there,

Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping/or sound
during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and
redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

Whirlpool AWM312/3 Front Loader Washing Machine - not spinning


I would recommend getting the service manual for your model as some models have clutches that control spin and others have belts. The service manual would be the best route if you are planning on repairing this yourself. If you would like the service manual let me know and I will post a link to where you can get one emailed to you.
