Re: whirlpool imperial series 2 ultimate care washer
I had a similar problem with mine, it wouldn't drain or spin. It was the sensor/lever that lets the machine know that the lid is closed... the screw casing that held it in place had broken... I tied it back in place covered the string with duct tape and now it works fine... or at least it did until the pump cracked this week.

First thought is that the cycles are off.we have the same problem with ours right now. That slow spin speed concerns me. The motor could be going bad. If this washer is 10-12 years old, you may want to look at replacing it. Does the machine ever start agitating before it finishes filling. If so, the cycle mechanism is going bad. This has a whole host of potential problems. Ave a rep look at it. He can narrow it down quickly.
check the motor coupling,if the coupling is broken you'll hear the motor run but the agitiator won't move and no spin,the coupling connects the motor to the transmission.watch this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9K1KHEogf3c
Could be a problem with the lid switch or motor coupling.
Does it drain?
Does it spin?
when its time to agitate or spin, do you hear the motor?
Lets start with the lid switch. open the lid and use a screw driver to push the switch down. pay attention to see if you hear it click. Try to run the unit with the screw driver holding down the switch.
Let me know what happens so I can further assist you.
Hi, This washer does not have a belt. While the washer is agitating, if you lift the lid will it stop? Some models will agitate but not spin if the lid is up. It sounds to me like the lid switch might be going bad.
If you will get me a model #, I can look this up for you and give you a better idea.
If the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:
It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.
It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.
