Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
In order for the high speed spinning (rinse) cycle to begin, the lid must be shut. If your unit is top load, the problem is more likely the lid switch. or the tab on the lid that activates the switch is broken. If the tab is OK, disconnect unit from power outlet, remove back panel and trace the two wires going to the switch, once located, use a piece of wire to jump the two together, reconnect unit to power outlet and set the knob to rinse cycle, if unit works, replace switch.
