Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
Was not pumping correctly so I did the filter clean out and it was full of junk - but it still won't go throught thspin cycle - will do everything else on all cycles except spin - drains fine now - any thoughts - about 4 years old
reply to email@example.com
Does the wash tub spin freely by hand? If the tub does NOT spin by hand, the rear tub bearings may have seized up or something could be bound around the spin basket shaft (I've seen this one before). Let's hope it's not this problem.
If the tub DOES spin...have you checked to see if the drive belt was still on (sorry...I have to ask that question. I'm not trying to insult your intelligence here, but I have seen this one too).
Do you have the tech sheet that came with the washer? It's located behind the lower panel under the door, or taped to one of the interior cabinet walls. This tech sheet will explain to how to troubleshoot the symptoms you are describing. I suspect you may have a bad motor control unit (MCU) or bad motor. There are several voltage and resistance readings that you will need to perform in order to isolate the problem. It's odd, however, that diagnostics does not pick up any error codes. Normally, an error code will be generated if there was a no spin problem. It just doesn't make sense...Please post back and let me know.

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too. If all these don't solve problem, check your pump.

I had the same problem. Everything worked except it would not spin at any speed in any cycle. No error codes. Replaced the Motor Control Unit(MCU) and it runs again. I did check the motor winding resistances with my multimeter first to make sure the motor wasn't toast though.

You first of all need to
check the pump filter. This is
located at the bottom front right of washer. Look for a drop down flap or cover, once
located, unscrew filter anti-clockwise to remove and clean. Of course be prepared for a lot of water and
junk. The pump itself is directly behind
the filter housing, check there to see if anything is stuck in the plastic blades. It should turn freely. Your washer door will not open if there is
water in the washer, just some kind of precaution, so don't force the door.
