Check pump filter. I have had this twice on my indesit washing machine. You have to take the front cover off the bottom and then unscrew the filter to check it. Be careful as it will gush with water if the drum isn't drained.
Check the drain pipe for blockage by disconnecting far end of it and lowering to floor level (in a bowl). If no blockage then water should drain out of the drum by gravity.

Remove all the load and try to move the drum manually clockwise and anti clockwise. If you notice any friction check the motor separately and the agitator assembly separately.
It could be due to alignment shift causing a wobbly motion or a failure of the bearings.

Washing machine won't spin out. It is a Whirlpool Ultimate Care 2


It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If the water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

Check this link to replace the inlet valve:

http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/washing-machines/a/7/1408/how-to-replace-the-inlet-valve-on-a-washer-dr.html

Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the dry spin with the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water from the clothes during the spin.

Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.

My whirlpool duet will go through full wash cycle and when it get to rinse it does full rinse but light for spin does not go on and it doesn't spin it stays in spin cycle (no light on) but it does not...


Hi

This issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Be sure that BOTH hot and cold water are turned on and flowing. The smell can be resolved by running washing machine cleaner (not just soap) through the machine once a month or so.

Whirlpool washing machine won't rinse nor spin. I changed the lid switch but still won't work


The spin function is normally controlled by water level control switch not allowing operation until all water is pumped out,rinse should activate water valve to add clean water,if machine fills ok initially the problem seems to be in the controller not activating certain parts of the normal cycle.

Washing machine only washes and does not rinse or spin


in order for the washer to spin it must first pump all the water out in these cases we look further at the water dispenser pump check to make sure there are no blocks in the pipe and that the water pump is working
