Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

1 Answer

Washing machine spins but doesnt drain water until I turn it back to spin only

I have a Whirlpool Gold Ultimate Care II Heavy Duty Super Capacity Plus washing machine. Everything works fine except when it does the spin cycle the water does not drain. Here's the catch; when the cycle is done it is full of water and I dial it back to spin it goes spins and drains the water. And only on the normal cycle, all other cycles drain properly but the normal cycle is the one I want to use cause it aggitates more. So if I do a load of laundry and the cycle is over I have to manually turn the dial back to spin to drain the water extending my wait time. Whats wrong?

SOURCE: Whirlpool Ultimate Care Heavy Duty Washer will not spin

It sounds like you have a broken motor coupling. This is a very inexpensive and simple repair.

If the washer will fill and drain, but won't agitate or spin, you may have a broken motor coupling. The noise of the motor engaging, lack of agitation and ability to still drain are the usual symptoms. This is a common fail item with this model washer through normal wear and tear. Newer versions of the coupler are more resilient and resist breaking. The following link explains how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385252-replacing_motor_coupling_whirlpool_top
The motor coupling is located between the drive motor and the transmission and takes the place of a drive belt. They do wear out and can break. The replacement part number is included in the link I provided and is an improved upgraded coupling that is more resilient. It should last longer. If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

A replacement coupler can be purchased on line at appliancepartspros.com for about $11. Just use the part number in the link and "Search by Part Number" for your search criteria.

SOURCE: ultimate care supreme leaks underneath

First check the hoses to the machine. If they leak the water follows the hoses and drips on floor. Also check the hose connection at the washer. They will leak inside. Next it may well be a water pump going out or the plastic hose that is under pressure when operating. The pump is in the middle of machine underneth - Sorry - Good luck

    SOURCE: Ultimate Care II washer will not agitate or spin

    Your lid switch could be the problem. It has 3 wires: black red which are hot and green which is ground. Unplug that lid switch and check for continuity between black and red with the lid shut. This video shows where the lid switch is located

    SOURCE: water leaking during rinse cycle

    If your TOP LOADING Whirlpool washer is leaking, the following link explains how to remove the exterior washer case in order to accurately inspect the washer interior components for the source of your leak:

    http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576648-washer_leak__top_loader


    If the leak is more like a constant drip, a common source of leaks with Whirlpool manufactured top loaders is a leaking drain pump. These pumps are not serviceable and if damaged, must be replaced. The following link explains how:

    http://www.fixya.com/support/r3794382-replacing_water_pump_whirlpool_top


    Don't forget to check all drain hose connections under the washer and the center tub seal.

    Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

    searspartrsdirect.com
    pcappliancerepair.com
    appliancepartspros.com
    repairclinic.com

    Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.

    If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

    My whirlpool ultimate Care II Heavy Duty Super Capacity Plus washer Very slightly agitates and don't spin dry


    The motor coupler may be broken. Many Whirlpool®-manufactured washers use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and 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. You may need to replace it.

    Could be a few problems. Bad lid switch could be the problem but also could be other things. The agitator noise is something probably you should let a technician hear it could be as bad as a bad transmission. That could also be the cause of the other.
