Whirlpool washer (top loader, 5 years old) will not go into the high speed spin. Tub does spin but clothes are still wet after spin. I don't hear the high speed spin work.

    Yes, the clutch is hot but how do I remove it?

  • lclementson Oct 12, 2010

    Took off the clutch, is there supposed to be grease on the clutch lining? Could the grease be coming from the gear case? It seems like the seal from around the shaft coming out of the gear case isn't very tight. Are you supposed to be able to wiggle the shaft around in the gear case, how much play should there be?

The tub spins but the machine will not go in high speed. you have a worn clutch. Usually, the clutch will wear out due to a bad set of brake shoes,or a busted comb filter in the tub.This has to be checked.
If the lower half of the clutch is turning when the unit is supposed to spin, yet the upper half does not, the clutch may be damaged or even the white plastic brake release cam above it could be worn. The clutch kit comes with a new brake cam also. Check fig for more help:-- Whirlpool washer (top loader, 5 years old) will - c768d6f.jpg
--------- "if the clutch gets hot when running in a spinning cycle, even for a short time, that means that the clutch is "sliding" and that is the reason that the washer does not spin on high speed spin".You check the clutch in your washer after the spinning cycle and if it is really hot.Replace the clutch. ----------

    Insert a flathead screwdriver between the agitator cap and agitator and pop the cap off. Remove the inner cap using the same technique. After the inner cap is removed, use a socket wrench to remove the bolt located in the center of the agitator. The agitator can now be removed in two pieces from the tub.

    Locate the water pump and remove the two hoses attached to the pump. Use a pair of pliers to press in the pressure clamp and pull the hoses off. The water pump can now be removed from the motor by using a screwdriver to remove the two plastic retaining clips.

    Disconnect the wires from the motor by using a pair of needle-nose pliers and pulling the wire leads from the motor terminals.

    Remove the two clips that hold the motor to the washer frame using an appropriate-size socket wrench. Carefully slide the motor down and remove it from the gear case. The coupler between the gear case and the motor may have to be pried off with a screwdriver. Be careful when doing this to prevent damaging the coupler

    Place the washing machine on its back. You will be able to access the gear case assembly. Remove the three bolts that secure the gear case to the tub support using a socket wrench. Carefully pull the gear case assembly completely out of the drive tube, making sure that you do not damage the splined end of the shaft

    Remove the thrust washer by sliding it off of the shaft. Use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the support ring from the shaft. Remove the clutch retaining ring with a screwdriver and lift the clutch hub off the shaft. Place the new clutch hub over the shaft and slide it into position in the gear case.

    Then reverse procedure for reassembling .

I have had this problem with two of my previous washers a top loader and front loader.Each time it was a faulty pump that drains the water from the tub after the wash cycle is complete. If the water does not drain from the tub the machine will not go to the spin cycle. Both of my washers were 5 or 6 years old when this occurred. If the washer is only 5 months old it should be under the manufactures warranty. Good Luck.

The clothes are wet after spinning When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these: Motor coupler Spin cycle Siphoning Water-inlet valve Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning: If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine. If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely. Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component. Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician. Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess. Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

10yr whirlpool toploader wash machine no spin/agitat. but works?


When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these:

Motor coupler
Spin cycle
Siphoning
Water-inlet valve
Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning: 

  • If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine.


  • If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails.

Wet clothes at end of spin cycle


sounds like your transmission is not working properly. check your warranty information. (should be in your owners manual) many of the whirlpool made top loaders came with a 5 year warranty on the transmission/gear case
