If it's a top loader it sounds like the spin pall on the transmission is stuck, which would mean new transmision

SOURCE: changing a belt on a washing machine

There is no belt on this machine.
It uses a direct drive coupling between the motor and transmission.
Ope the control console,then remove the cabinet clips to remove the cabinet for access to the motor.
Remove the motor then remove the broken drive coupling(3 parts).
Replace the part and re-assemble the washer.

Hello, I have WHIRLPOOL washing mashine model AWE 2214. Yesterday during squeezing, the masine stoped without noise, no indication buttons.I cheked everything, but the mashine no start. Please, help me!...


Go to www.washingmachine-manual.com/whirlpool-awe-2214.html for the handbook. Make a cup of coffee and have a read up. If that fails to help then its an engineer I'm afraid.
If you have a good diy friend have them check the belt drive if it has one? Be careful of electricity and water, they don't mix.

Bumping noise during spin cycle


Hello.

Although a noisy washing machine is not typically a signthat something is broken, it definitely can be annoying. Usually the noise froma washing machine can be fixed fairly easily, but a few different fixes mayneed to be tried before it can be determined what the true culprit of the noisewas. INSTRUCTIONAND TOOLS NEEDED STATED BELOW Flashlight, Screwdriver, Drive belt 1 Check the drum bearings if the washing machine ismaking a rumbling noise. The noise may possibly stem from water getting intothe bearings. Take the belt off and spin the drum by hand. If there is arumble, remove the bearings and replace them with new ones. 2 Check the spider at the back of the drum. The spideris the three-armed device that holds the drum in place. If there is one loudnoise on each revolution of the drum, there is a good chance the spider haspartially become loose. Tighten the bolts on the spider to silence the noise itcauses. 3 Check for coins. If the noise the washing machinemakes sounds like metal on metal, there is a good chance that some change hasslipped from a pocket and is now in the dryer. Take a flashlight and look inthe drum for coins, paper clips, and other small items. 4 Adjust the legs. Many washing machines make morenoise than they should because they have not been properly balanced. Re-adjustthe legs to make sure that they are all even. This will keep the washingmachine from moving and will ensure that the noise it creates while it moveswill go away. 5 Replace the drive belt. Often a high-pitched squeakynoise can come from a drive belt that has been worn down. Simply replacing theold belt with a new one will fix this problem.
Thank.

Whirlpool washer-will not spin and pump out the water in the rins


Hi,

If your washer won't spin, check these:

It doesn't pump or spin
It pumps, but doesn't spin
It spins only with the lid closed
It doesn't pump or spin If it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:

  • Ifthe motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley ora broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from thewasher and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turnfreely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is brokenor looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulleybefore you change the belt.


  • If the motor isn'trunning, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machinecan't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside thewashing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have toraise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to theswitch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.


It pumps, but doesn't spin If your washer pumps out the water but doesn't spin, check these:

  • Thelid switch may be defective. If it is, the washing machine doesn'tspin. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near thedoor frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of thewashing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need toreplace it.


  • The motor coupler may be broken. ManyWhirlpool®-manufactured washers use a small, relatively inexpensivemotor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft ofthe motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time,the coupler wears out and fails. You may need to replace it.


  • Abelt may be broken. Many washing machines have one or two belts. If abelt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuinebelt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designedwith special characteristics not found in automotive belts.)


  • Theclutch may be worn. If your washer is a GE, it may use a clutch to comeup to the proper spin speed. As the clutch wears out, it may preventthe unit from spinning well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you needto replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualifiedappliance repair technician.


  • The drive motor may bedefective. Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation themotor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It'spossible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue tooperate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entiremotor.


  • The transmission may not be shifting properly.Older washers produced by Whirlpool® have a transmission with anelectro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partiallydefective, the unit may drain the water but not spin. This is a complexsystem, if your washer has a shifter problem, you may want to hire aqualified appliance repair technician to repair it.


  • Thespin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized. These componentsallow the inner tub to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this isthe problem, you usually hear a loud sound during the spin cycle. Calla qualified appliance repair technician.


It spins only with the lid closed Forsafety, washing machines are made so that they spin only with the lidclosed. The lid switch prevents the spinning action when the lid is up.

It sound like a motor or a belt issue. Open the machine and look for belt's condition and does the motor spins. Good luck!
