My washer wont rinse. It seems to have a hard time spinning, any suggestions?


do you hear the motor running ,it will drain but no spin,this has no belt in it it's built just like a whirlpool washer because whirlpool owns maytag now and this washer has a motor coupling,i would check this first,do you know if the agitator is working or do you hear a grinding noise when it's running?watch this video and you don't have to disconnect the wire harness to the motor if you don't want to,i don't just put motor off to right side still connected

I want to place wet clothes in the washer and just spin them without washing them


sounds like you have a door lock problem, maybe the wax motor is not working properly of the spin switch is bad. You may have a problem with the motor controller also. Kind of hard to tell you how to trouble shoot on internet, unless you just want to replace parts till it works, call for service.

My portable top load kenmore washer model 110.42722200 won't spin. It drains water and all the light functions work, but it only makes a humming sound like it is stuck when it gets to a spin cycle and does...


I just repaired this exact model this weekend. If the machine will drain but doesn't agitate or spin (you have to put a screwdriver in the lid switch to see), it's usually a loose belt. This time I replaced the belt, but it still would not agitate or spin, and the motor was not turning, just a "buzz, buzz, buzz" when the washer attempted to supply power to the motor. The start capacitor for the motor was bad. Part number 3429938 which runs about $60. Not hard to access once you tip the washer over slightly, just DISCHARGE THE OLD CAPACITOR so you don't get a nasty shock.

Maytag Dependable Care M# LAT9416AAE will not spin. The tub is hard to turn.


It sounds as if the floating motor mount is no longer floating or the 2 springs inside of that floating / gliding mount are not working correctly. There are also 4 hard rubber clear washers that are part of the gliding mount. If any one of the 4 of those washers has broken the motor does not glide properly and will not tighten the belt properly for the spin cycle to work. Make sure the unit is unplugged reach underneath the left front corner and feel for a 2 V belt groved pulley. First push the pulley inward 45 deg from the corner and let it go.... If it is working properly it should automatically tension the belt. If is sticks in position the either the springs or washer have failed. This is not an expensive repair. IF you call for a repairman make sure he checks the condition of the tub drive belt. The motor has been placing undue wear on the drive belt due to it being loose.

Everything works-no spin-motor sounds like it won't engage


Sounds like the clutch is malfunctioning. Not an easy DIY job -- probably need a service call.

this is a whirpool style direct drive. most likely coupler is broken. it's a small part, between motor and gearcase about as big around as a silver dollar but thicker. lean the washer back so you can look under it and look right behind the motor. not a major repair. worth fixing. You will want to remove the cabinet so if you decide to do it mssg back for more info.

Whirlpool Ultimate Care HD Plus Model #LSR8233EQ0 won't agitate or spin


It sounds like the coupling between the motor and gearbox has worn out. It should cost around $15 plus shipping and handling.
