Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
grinding noises are never a good sign. My best guess is that the motor coupling is shot. Very inexpensive repair if you're handy. unplug and tip the machine back. locate the motor and remove the clips holding the motor/pump assembly to the transmission. carefully remove the motor and if the coupling is shot, replace. put it back together and should be good to go.

SOURCE: Clothes wet, doesnt spin fast
Check the drain spigot, where the drain hose attaches to the drain trap under the sink/tub.There may be a blockage in the spigot which is causing the water to drain very slowly and therefor not allowing the machine to spin at normal fast speed.

Hi Paul, Assuming it is pumping out ok, Unplug the machine tip it back at an angle, underneath you will see a black hose that is attached to the bottom of the drum, remove this, take out the ball and discard it and remove anything that may be in the filter, replace the hose and try the machine.

The heavy jacket prevented the washer from spinning at a rapid pace, so I added a heavy bathrobe to absorb some of the water and to balance the load. The washer then spun very quickly and drained out all the water.

There should be a filter located at bottom front right of washer behind a metal cover.
Press on cover to open, and remove filter by unscrewing anti -clockwise.
Also check outlet pipe is not blocked, more so if it goes into a sink waste connection, if it still leaves water in drum, then there is probably a partial blockage else where, which will require further investigation.
Please leave a fixya rating if my solution solves your problem.
