Maybe check and make sure that the door switch is working properly I know most washers will stop spinning if you open the door during the cycle, so that goes to say that if the switch is bad it will not start to spin as it thinks the door is open.

WHIRLPOOL WASHING MACHINE WILL NOT SPIN SEE ADDITIONAL DETAILS


Sounds like your gear casing is broken inside, motor is spinning but transmission shaft where agitator sits on, is not spinning.

Washer spins loudly and seems to free wheel and other times does not drain properly


Check the motor to transmission coupling, probably broken.
Also check the inner basket drive block. The drive block is attached to the top of the spin tube-basket drive assembly under the inner basket. The spanner nut is under the agitator, locking the basket to the spin tube. The drive block has two slots that lock onto the two ears of the spin tube. Replace the damaged drive block, and/or replace the basket drive/brake assembly.

Washer doesn't spin


let the machine rest for a long time (cool off) then with no water or clothes try spinning it...
no spin problem can be several headaches:
too much clothes (too heavy)
drive coupler broken
broken lid switch
basket freeze
pump locked
clothing in pump
clothing in between basket
clutch locked up
brake locked up
transmission seized!!!

it is hard to determine exactly without being there to help you...just check what you can... if you have additional questions let me know

My whirlpool gold model gsx9885jq0 will not spin.


I was amazed at the excellent utube video on washing machine repair, I expect you will find your solution there. For your encouragement, it's not likely to be the timer.

I have a Kenmore Heavy Duty top-loading washer that's approx. 9 years old. It drains during the spin cycle, but doesn't spin so I'm left with sopping wet laundry. At first I could give it a little...


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.#######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

This also assumes that the washer agitates well. (Poor agitating and spinning initially point to a worn / broken Motor Coupler)

The Kenmore / Whirlpool top load uses a reversing motor to initiate the pump for draining and the transmission to spin.

This is the Whirlpool PDF on installation and maintenance of direct drive washers.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

The initial problem points to one of two places:

1. The clutch may be worn (especially on a 9 year old machine.)

See the following for how to remove the cabinet, pump, motor and transmission.

The clutch sits on top of the transmission and provides power to the "spin tube" which drives the basket.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137

You don't have to remove the basket to check the clutch but I'd recommend it as a way to check your second problem (basket).

In order to remove the drive block, you don't have to buy a special spanner wrench. I've used a short 10" pipe wrench hooked over one of the tabs on the spanner nut and tapped the handle with a hammer to loosen it.

Also, use a short piece of wood under the drive block to tap it up instead of directly hitting the block with a hammer since it is relatively soft metal.

Check the clutch bands to see if they are worn or damaged or if the springs are broken. Sears / Whirlpool have a clutch rebuild kit if the bands / springs are damaged / worn.

If everything else works OK,, including the drain, and the timer moves, 2. The problem could be in the transmission / gearcase.
"Neutral Drain Assembly".

Those cams/gears etc. in that assembly keep the washer from spinning until all of the water is pumped out and then go into spin mode.

Ours had a similar problem.

After looking at the transmission parts list (available on a number of sites) and on the Whirlpool site (Whirlpool makes Kenmore) we noticed that the one of the cams in the neutral assembly which is supposed to have a small spring, didn't on ours when we tore the transmission apart again. The Sears site for your washer may have a sub-component section on the gearcase with a part number for the Neutral Drain Assembly repair kit.

http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%20W10114743.pdf

Found the part number for a kit (Whirlpool part number 388253 Neutral Assembly) for $15.00 and replaced the cams and gears.

Lay the machine down (after disconnecting power and hoses, remove the pump (two clips), the motor (two screws hold two clips on the motor), lift and set the motor aside, remove two 1/2 inch bolts for the motor mounting plate and three 1/2 inch bolts for the transmission. Pull the transmission, remove the clutch (there is a spring clip that holds the clutch on the main agitator shaft, remove the 8 screws carefully the transmission holds 14 - 15Oz of oil, remove the clip holding the main spin gear on and check the plastic cams.

If the cam that should have a spring doesn't, or the others look damaged, the washer won't go into spin mode.

If that's the problem, install a Neutral drain kit, put everything back together carefully and the problem may be solved.

With ours, all told, it cost less than $30 (including new 80-90 weight gear oil) vs. about $170 for a new transmission.


Basket:

Since you have the basket out of the washer, you should be able to see if there is any obstruction keeping it from setting correctly.

The main places to check are the tabs on the top of the spin tube that have to align with the slots in the drive block.

Any of the above possibilities will require a bit of work and ( with the transmission) may be a bit messy but they are certainly less expensive than a new washer or transmission.




The job is a bit complicated and messy but not too difficult.

Kenmore washer model 110.23812100. basket not spinning during spin cycle.


First, see the Sears parts site for your washer.

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?pop=true&modelNumber=110.23812100

Also see the Whirlpool Service Manual for these washers.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf


If you can hear the motor and the washer drains during the spin cycle the Motor Coupler and Lid Switch (the usual problems with these washers) are not the problem.

These washers use a clutch which allows the "basket tube" to spin up to speed during the spin cycle.

If the clutch bands or springs are worn or damaged, the transmission cannot transmit power to the basket tube for spining.

See the following on how to remove the cabinet,agitators, basket, pump, transmission and basket tube. (It's not as difficult as it sounds.)

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137

Instead of using a special spanner wrench on the spanner nut, I've used a short 10" pipe wrench hooked onto one of the tabs on the nut and tapped the handle with a hammer to loosen the nut. I also put a short piece of wood under the Basket Drive Block and hit the wood instead of the drive block directly.

Check the clutch bands and springs and the tabs on top of the basket tube and the slots in the basket drive block.

We have a Whirlpool Gold Ultimate Care II Washing Machine. Washer will fill with water, but when it tries to go to another cycle you just hear a loud rumbling noise and the basket will not spin.


Peace jjones16 ,
huuum At your service!

You have a Whirlpool Gold Ultimate Care II Washing Machine. And the washer will fill with water, but when it tries to go to another cycle you just hear a loud rumbling noise and the basket will not spin?
Correct?

So!

Sounds like the coupling connecting the transmission to the agitator is worn out!
If I were there hands on I could be definite.
But it sounds like you need this replaced!
Thank God it's not the transmission.
When a transmission goes out of warranty, it;s not worth putting good money into bad! They are just to expensive a repair!

Only a hands on laundry tech can make the diagnoses.
This time you should call service
Let me know what is the final results.
Please write me back.

How old is the washer??????????????

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!
