    I am trying to find out the root of the problem. My washer first started with the loud clicking noises but would spin. Now I have the clicking noises but it will not spin. Washer goes thru all the cycles except the spin cycle. My washer is a GE Super Capacity Plus.

    every cycle on my washer works but when it comes to spin I hear a loud clicking noise. The basin won't spin and I can't even move it like I used to. I need a fix now my washer is a wirlpool.

Check for a failed capacitor under the control panel It is a start/run capacitor that the motor needs to start running. The motor will hum and if left will eventually burn out.

Have a UC code. Washer starts than stops during cycles when the drum is moving. also hear a clicking sound Tx, Bob


If the clutch fails the first thing noticed is a UC or DC error displayed and there is no drain or spin.

If you are seeing the above error and having a problem with spin and drain then the most likely cause of this is the clutch. The clutch fails to lock down the spinners and the basket is unable to go into spin and without a 90 RPM there is no drain.

Whirpool Washer LSQ9500LQ0 Won't Spin or Drain


Your belt assessment sounds correct on the dryer problem.
If you can, restore the lid switch connections, and operate the switch during what should be spin. You should be able to hear a relay or solenoid clicking off and on with the switch.

My washer is not spinning or draining properly, the timer is working, it will continue until it is in the off position but once it is my clothes are sopping wet. Is there a part I need or anyway I can fix...


if it is a top loader the moter controls the pump and spin u need to check power to the moter and clutch i.e if the moter runs but no spin the clutch has gone if its not geting the water out i can be the moter the best way to check is take the waste pipe out and put it in to a bucket and turn on the water should jet out if not the pump may be blocked try these first

I have a Whirlpool Washer Model LXR6232EQ0. Yesterday something happened after it drained during the rinse cycle. It wouldn't spin. It makes a noise like the moter is trying to spin but there is a slight tinkle once in a while. Could it be the motor coupling or do you think it is the clutch. The agitator doesn't spin at all. does it have a belt?

Whirlpool ultimate care II will not spin


You said,washer is full of water and will not spin. You hear the lid switch clicking. When you start it on spin cycle and hear a hum, the tub moves a couple of inches and then stops...shortly after it shuts off.


Some reasons this may happen
Washer won’t drain or spin
n
1. Is the drain hose clogged, or the end of the drain hose
more than 72 inches (183 cm) above the floor?
2. Is the lid open? ............Also the lid switch can be faulty!!
The lid must be closed during operation.
3. Is there excessive sudsing?
Always measure detergent. Follow manufacturer’s directions.
4 If you have very soft water, you might need to use less
detergent.

Sounds to me like the lid switch can be faulty!!Then it acts like the lid is open.
