Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have the Whirlpool Gold Series. On the low or gentle selection it still spins my clothes so hard they are wrapped around each other and stuck to the sides of the tub. My knit shirts come out so wrinkled that no matter what I do, line dry them or use the dryer, they never smooth out. It seems like the spin cycle for knits is just about the same as it is for heavy clothes and towels.

Washing machine does not spin well and leaves the clothes soaking wet


Likely a bad belt or tensioner causing it to slip. Take it apart and look to see what the belt is doing or call a repair man.

Spin cycle works sometimes, or does not spin hard enough to remove most of water


Many high-end washers have two spin cycle speeds. The low speed is for delicate fabrics. Yours may be stuck in the low speed. Check that you are selecting the wash cycle with the high speed spin.

If you are and it continues to spin at the low speed then your controller is most likely at fault. Your gearbox could be bad too but it usually complains with a lot of noise.

If this helps you, please select YES to one of the first two ratings questions. Thank you, and Good Luck.

Clothes wrapping under agitator


Somewhat inherent in this design. You can try to carefully unwrap the clothes by gently rocking them back and forth to see if you can release them, or gently spin the drum while you tug (not too hard!) on the stuck clothes. The wash plate seal might be compromised, but if you start taking the inner workings apart you have to replace the gasket set. I have not tackled this on my unit yet though I have replaced the old pump motor with the improved one (single piece instead of 2 pieces), and I have gotten adept at taking the unit apart from the bottom to remove draw strings which get sucked into the pump impeller, jamming or clogging it. The wash plate seal might be getting old - I think mine probably needs to be replaced but doing that will require more extensive repairs than just putting in a new seal. The service manual warns several times about replacing the proper seals, gaskets o-rings and/or grommets if you remove the outer or inner wash plates, to avoid compromising the water tight seals and causing damage to the U-joint assembly that gives the washer its characteristic wash motion.
