Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
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?
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:
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.

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

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

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