Sounds like you have a lid switch problem. The machine thinks the lid is open and it is designed not to run with an open lid. Depending on the styl of whirpool washer you have there is two ways to fix it. First raise the lid of your washer. Do you see a pin on the underside of the lid and a hole in the top of the machine it would fit into? If you don't, try tightening the 4 phillips screws on the hinges on either side of the lid. If they get loose the hinge wont strike the lid switch. If you do see the pin and the hole I mentioned, you likely will actually have to replace your lid switch. If you have this style, send me back your model number and I will type you up a step by step replacement of it.

Kenmore series 80 washer won't drain after wash cycle


Try the 'drain' portion of a few of the other cycles (heavy, perm. press, delicates) and see if it will drain/spin there. You can also try advancing the timer slowly through the 'spin' portion to see if it kicks in anywhere.

If it will rinse and spin in the other cycles, you most likely have a bad timer.

Hope this helps.

Rise and spin


While the machine is operating take the timer knob and wiggle it around. If the machine cuts out momentarily then the timer is bad. If not then I would check out the lid switch to see if it is affecting the rinse and spin cycle.

Maytag commercial washer gets to spin cycle and stops


It sounds like your timer is defective

FIX

When the machine gets to the rinse cycle slowly advance the setting to manually advance the timer
if it just sits bang on the panel or around the knob and listen if ou hear the timer start ticking you will need to replace it

Timers are avaliable from appliance parts suppliers around $29 you can get someone to install it or if you are handy can do it yourself

good luck

Whirlpool top Loading washing machine won't spin on spin cycle


If the washer won't finish a spin cycle, it probably means that your timer went bad or stalled. You can take the control panel off and look at the contacts for scorching or corrosion.

Washer will not drain after wash cycle or the spin cycle


check to see if your pump is slightly plugged with a sock or ?

Your top loader should pump out in about a minute and a half when totally full of water.
