SOURCE: Whirlpool thin twin stacked,won't agitate or spin

whirlpool washers have a drive coupling in between the motor and the transmission to replace this remove the top and disconnect the lid switch set it aside remove the front panel then remove the 2 clips that hold the pump on then push it out of the way then remove the 2 screws that hold the motor clamps on and then remove the upper and lower motor clamps remove the motor then replace the three piece "motor coupling" one piece goes on the motor the other three pronged plastic piece goes on the transmission and the rubber isolator goes between them and now just put every thing back together

Washer is not working, was drying clothes and when I check them I noticed washer was full of water, drained water and washer not working.


sounds like lid switch problemes, just bypass it to test, if you ear the motor running and it doesnt turn then it should be the coupling between the motor and transmission thats broken, good luck, Alain

I need to replace lid switch on Whirlpool Thin Twin washer/dryer unit. How do I get the switch out and the new one in


The 3 screws across the front of the slanted panel need to be removed, then the panel. At the left and right rear of the main washer top are 2 5/16" screws, these need to be removed, there is a loose fitting steel clip through a slot on the main top these are holding down, when the 5/16" screws are removed slide the entire top forward and it will release from the front fixed clips. Unplug the lid switch unit and the main top can be set aside to replace the switch. Pleazer Appliance...

Whirlpool thin twin filled with water then stopped!


Not sure about the dryer but there are a couple things that could cause the no draining issue.
You could have a leak or block in your pressure hose. Basically there is a thin, clear tube inside the cabin that attaches to the tub on the lower right side. If this has a leak or is clogged then the washer has problems filling and draining.
The other possible problem is a broken lid switch. This is an easy fix. Basically, the mechanical mechanism that goes down when you close the lid does not work properly so when it comes time to drain, the washer actually thinks the lid is open.
For both of these you would need to open cabin. I posted instructions for that here:

Check the lid switch, the machine will not spin or drain without the lid switch being activated. You should be able to see if the switch actuator is broken or missing, look in the slot where the lid's plunger drops into, if you can see the gray plastic actuator, set the machine in the spin cycle and try to depress the switch with a flat screwdriver, if it runs, the switch is cracked and needs replaced, if the actuator looks fine, and you can hear a distinct "click" when you press down on it, it may be a problem in the timer, but check the lid switch first, that's most likely the problem.

Washer


The symptoms you describe are typical of a broken lid switch. The lid switch is located under the washer top on the right hand side. It is activated through a slot by a small plastic piece on the lid called a "lid strike". Make sure the lid strike is still installed and not broken. Make sure the lid switch itself is not loose, as well. There are two mounting screws along the washer tub opening that hold it in place. If the screws become loose the switch will not make contact with the lid strike when the lid is closed. If you need to replace the switch or lid strike, the parts are available at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and look under the "Washer Top and Lid" heading on the next page. The lid switch is listed as item number 22 (part #3355806) and the lid strike is listed as item number 16 (part #358684). Both parts combined will cost you about $30. If you have further questions and/or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
