Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

1 Answer

No Spin Cycle

Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} I have a whirlpool Estate Heavy Duty, Super Capacity, 8 cycle, 4 speed washing machine that does not initiate the spin cycle(on rare occasions it does). At the end of the complete wash cycle, the water has been pumped out, but the clothes are still wet. When it occurs, I'll reach in and rotate the inner drum and I may have to do it a couple of times and the washer will complete the spin cycle. When I referred to a troubleshooting guide on the internet, I was informed that it might be the motor coupler, timer (spin cycle), the lid switch, the transmission, or possibly the water inlet valve.
I removed the water pump and motor to inspect the motor coupler, but it's not damaged. I inspected/checked the following components:
Motor: No "burnt smell" Continuity on the start windings (black & yellow wires), I had reading of 8.8 ohms instead of the normal 4-7 ohms (all other windings were okay).
Lid Switch: Continuity was good with lid closed, open state when lid was open.
Cabinet: Small/medium amount of grease sprayed on the (right side) inside wall.
Timer: Removed, but I don't know the condition of the contacts because I'm not sure how to access them.
Water Pump: I can manually turn it freely.
I can't seem to pinpoint the problem, any ideas?

Sounds like the clutch may be slipping. Does it go into a high speed spin?
