Either you have a bad transmission or your coupler is bad, in most cases its the coupler .

1) Be sure your clothes dryer is plugged in and turned on. If necessary, check the receptacle it's plugged into for power, using a working lamp, appliance, or voltage tester. Be aware that most electric dryers don't plug into standard 120-





volt receptacles; they operate on 240 volts. 







Make sure the door is closed completely, the timer is advanced to the proper position, and the correct cycle is selected.

2) If the receptacle is dead, check the circuit breaker or fuse that serves that circuit.

3) Unplug the dryer and check the power cord and the terminal block. If necessary, replace the cord.

4) Open the door, and check the door switch. Press and release it; it should click each time. If it doesn't, it's probably broken.

If you're experienced at home repair, you can remove the switch, test it, and replace it if needed; otherwise, call an appliance repair service.

5) If the dryer still doesn't work, a thermal fuse or other electrical or electronic part may be faulty. The thermal fuse, found in the back cover panel, can stop working if the dryer overheats. Call an appliance service person if you suspect an electrical part may be malfunctioning.

SOURCE: My Whirlpool washer won't spin

Hi, It sounds like the coupler has broken. If the motor runs but doesn't do either of these things, here is how to Removing the cabinet. UNPLUG the washer. There are two screws holding the control panel to the cabinet. Most models the screw are in front but, some models have the screws in back. They are on each end. Now raise the control panel up and let it rest on the hinges. Unplug the lid switch harness and locate the clips on each side (bronze in color) and release them.
Now the cabinet will lift off the frame and you can set it aside.

How to replace a coupler:
Now that the cabinet is out of the way, remove the pump from the motor and set the pump off to the side. Remove the two screws holding the clips on the motor and remove the clips. Unplug the motor harness and on some models you wil need to unplug the capacitor.
Now you will need to replace all three parts to the coupler. I use a ½” socket and a small hammer to force the coupler onto the motor and transmission shafts. Put the rubber part onto the coupler half on the transmission and then line up the post on the motor shaft with the holes on the rubber part and it should go on ok. Put the clips that hold the motor in place and plug in the harnesses.
Put the pump back on and the clips to hold it in place. Set the cabinet back on the frame. Make sure the lip on the front cabinet is under the front rail of the frame. Ease the cabinet on the frame making sure the two rear sides of the cabinet set down on the tabs of the frame.
Put the two clips back on that hold the cabinet and plug the lid switch back in. Fasten the control panel down and you are all set.
Please let me know if this helps you or if I can assist you further.

When it gets to the SPIN cycle,wait 45 seconds. If it does not spin,open then close the lid.
If it spins then,replace the timer.
If it does not spin,replace the lid switch.

Whirlpool Thin Twin randomly skips agitation during the cycle.


Did you ever figure this out? Mine agitates but instead doesn't start spinning and draining unless I open the lid. It then "clicks" and starts but it is strange that I have to do this to get it to spin.

My whirlpool thin twin does not agitate but spins. Is it the coupler? Thanks Todd


No it not the coupler if it were broke it would not spin as well as not agitate

Is the entire agitator not turning or just the top portion?

typically the bottom part will turn but not the upper part if the parts called the agitator dogs were wore out

Washer stop spinning and water drains out slowly


Im not sure on why the water drains out slowly maybe a clogged drain hose or possibly a leak in the water pump.. as for spinning. if the whole unit spinning as in the drum? if not you have something called a motor coupling it is in between the motor and transmission if you tilt your washer and see black or white shavings then you know your coupling is broken .. is the agitator spinning? inside the middle there are something called Dog agitators they are four if they should have teeth marks on the ends if the are worn they will not. you can view your schematic and manual on sears.com/parts with your model number i used 11024032 and it will offer you a few different models to choose from click them and you can view the pictures and also download the manual and use the troubleshooting guide

Washer stops in mid cycle


This is probably normal. There is a natural pause between agitating and draining, and again between draining and spinning. Hope this helps!

My washer does not work


Sounds like you may have a lid switch problem. Without a model number, I really can give you a part number (Kenmore Stacks are made by two companies, Frigidaire and Whirlpool) or a way to get to it. It is right under the lid. Check the top and be sure that the plunger that goes into the hole isnt broke or missing. If you need further help, send me the model number (will start with 417 if its a Frigidaire or 110 if its a Whirlpool) and will try to get you a little more information. The job on either unit isnt that hard, and parts are pretty inexpensive. Let me know. Jim
