Whirlpool washer not spinning or draining

Last night, i started the water and left the lid up so that we could add to our wash after yard work. when i placed the garments in the tub, i noticed that the cycle had gone through the agitation process, but with the lid opened, wouldnt preceed into the draining. didnt think anything of it.. i restarted the cycle, and closed the lid. this morning, i went to put those clothes in the dryer, and noticed, it stoped in the same spot as last night with only doing the agitation... i have checked other cycles, and the macine will only agitate. it will not drain or spin on any cycle. is there any sort of reset switch?? thanks so much in advance for your help....

    Whirlpool Ultimate Care Gold Series washing machine (model GSL9365EQ0) has the same problem exactly.

  • dblajsa Aug 28, 2008

    My problem is IDENTICAL... will agitate fine... then just dies. No drain, no spin. I anticipate the problem is with whatever causes the machine to drain. What that is... no clue. Help!

    The whirlpool machine won't drain or spin after the cycle has gone thru to agitate the clothes, I've adjusted the hoses to see if they were not high enough or above water level for the machine and I've tried other cycles and it still does the same thing, what else would cause it to not drain or spin and would it be a simple thing or something major to repair?

    Thanks, Anna

    I had the same problem. I took the machine apart and found a broken motor coupler. This was a plastic part. I order the new part online that was made with metal not pastic. I put the machine back together, and it works fine.

    The washer will agitate but not pump out (spin and drain). I tried all cycles and had the same results. We installed a new timer but it won't spin and drain.

    cycle works normally. When lid is closed, agitator starts moving, but stops when the lid is opened and left up

    ngfam 1 doesn't know his machine! you can fix it yourself. on the lid is a plastic piece that fits in a hole that activates the switch for the spin cycle. carefully use a pair of pliers to bend the lip of the lid so the plastic piece just about touches the outside edge of the hole. if this doesn't work, then you need to replace the switch that is mounted just below that hole. approximate cost of switch $36 to $45.



Touting for business as usual. That's not what forums are about!

How do I dye in my washer

You put the water into the machine, then add the dye to the water after it is filled up, use the hottest water you can use for your fabric. Let it agitate for a minute or two, then add the garment. Let it finish the wash cycle and it will be dyed. You can also dye things on top of the stove. Heat a pot of water, add dye, place garment into the dye and let it sit in the water for about 20 minutes then take it out and rinse in cold water.
Note: hot water will make your garments shrink, so be careful

What is hd code????

Hi Peter, If I understand your question correctly, you are asking what the code "HD" means for your machine. I am unable to find the code "HD", however, here is a list of the codes for these Maytag models, perhaps one looks similar to "HD". Hopefully this answers your question!

Washer displaying code messages
- "LF" (Washer is taking too long to fill)
Check the following:
Are the water inlet hoses kinked or clogged?
Are the water inlet valve screens clear?
Press PAUSE/CANCEL to clear display.
- "Ld" (Washer is taking too long to drain water from the wash tub)
Check the following:
Is the drain hose kinked or clogged?
Is the drain hose installed properly? See "Connect the Drain Hose." Press PAUSE/CANCEL
to clear display.
- "uL" (Unbalanced Load)
If the load is unbalanced, the washer will display this code while running an imbalanced
load correction routine at the end of the wash cycle and before the final spin. If the code
remains and the wash cycle dial is flashing after the recovery routine has stopped, open
lid and redistribute the load. Close lid and press START.
- "oL" (Over Load)
Is the washer overloaded? The washer has attempted to fill and begin the wash cycle. If
the washer is overloaded, it will drain any water and detergent that was added during the
fill. To correct the overload, remove several items and add detergent. Close lid and press
- "Sd" (Suds Detected)
Did you use regular detergent?
Regular or hand-washing detergents are not recommended for this washer. Use only High
Efficiency ("HE") detergent.
Did you add too much detergent?
Always measure detergent. Follow detergent manufacturer's directions.
If excessive suds are detected, the washer will display this code while running a suds
reduction correction routine at the end of the wash cycle. The suds reduction routine
removes extra suds and assures proper rinsing of your garments. If the code remains and
the wash cycle dial is flashing after the recovery routine has stopped, re-select your
desired cycle using cold water. Press START. Do not add detergent.
- "lid" (Lid Opened)
Is the lid open? Close the lid to clear the display. If the lid remains open for more than 10
minutes, water in the wash tub will drain.
- "HC" (Cold and Hot hoses switched)
This code will appear at the end of the wash cycle to indicate that the cold and hot water
inlet hoses are switched. See "Connect the Inlet Hoses."
- "dL" (Door/Lid cannot lock)
Indicates lid is not locked. Check for items caught in the lid keeping it from closing. Press
PAUSE/CANCEL once to clear the code.
- "dU" (Door/Lid cannot unlock)
Is there excessive weight on the lid, such as a basket of laundry? Excessive weight will
keep the lid from unlocking. Press PAUSE/CANCEL once to clear the code.
- "F##" code
Press PAUSE/CANCEL once to clear code. Press START. If code appears again, call for

Whirlpool W10240509A did not spin out all water. when i try to restart iti

mine just started doing this on the wash cycle then we have to turn it to drain and spin. Last night it filled with water and refused to do anything else so it said it was done, open the lid and still full of soap and water. Turn it to drain and press the start button and it does nothing, no lights come on. We bought it in 2012, before the washer we had was purchased in 2000, and we are still using the dryer from 2000.

Lid is not locking properly, washer sensor is overfilling, and the washer wont spin

Check door switch: If the lid switch is bad it will not drain or spin. Try this test: With lid open let it finish wash cycle. Press lid switch down with screwdriver. Washer should begin draining. Release switch. Motor should stop. Press switch a second time. Washer should start spinning as it continues to drain. If motor doesn't come on while lid switch is pressed, replace the switch. OR
Pl click if helped.

Code F20, what is it and what do i do?????

The "F20" means no water is detected entering the tub or the pressure switch trip was not detected.

There is a good possibility the reason why is because some or all the water is coming out the dispenser. The reason why it's coming out of the dispenser is most likely due to a small garment was shoved up into the tube that delivers the water into the tub. This can happen if the washer is overloaded or if the garment is too small. Small garments should be placed in a garment bag before washing.

Remove the dispenser drawer and confirm there is no block there and then open the door and look at the rubber boot at about the 10 or 11 o'clock position and you should see where the water enters the tub. You will likely find a small garment up inside the tube restricting the fill water from entering the tub and causing the F20.

Spin cycleis out, doesnt even hum....

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:

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

If it neither drains nor spins, the first thing to check is the Lid Switch. This prevents the machine from draining and spinning if the lid is open.

I assume that you cannot hear the motor trying to turn.

Following is a Whirlpool installation and maintenance PDF on top load, direct drive washers. It has a description of how to by-pass the switch.

It also has a troubleshooting guide.

To bypass the switch, you only have to disconnect the power to the washer, remove the two plastic clips from the console, remove the two screws under the clips, tilt the console back, unplug the switch and using an short piece of insulated wire, jump the two outermost contacts on the connector coming from the console and plug the washer back in.

With the jumper in place, try to re-start the washer.

If it works, the Lid Switch is a relatively inexpensive part.
