I have an "older" Whirlpool washing machine at a rental property and was told by the tenants, that the machine did not spin during the final cycle and that their clothes were left soaking wet.
After reviewing your site and several of the videos, I went ahead and replaced the motor coupling but with no success. After reading more posts from your site and again reviewing the videos, I went ahead and replaced the clutch - still no luck. In for a penny / in for a pound, so I also replaced the lid switch - but it still doesn't spin in the final cycle.
I had planned on trying one last thing - replacing the drive block but after reading other posts about older machines, I've found that many possible options may still be the cause.
The machine is likely in the 20-25 year-old range and while I'd normally just swap such an item out, since the motor and transmission look good(?) and since I've already replaced several parts, I'm not quite ready to give-up. Plus, the tenants really love the way that the machine washes.
Is the drive block a likely cause for the problems or is the real issue, something more serious like the transmission or other? Any help would be appreciated.
Yes the drive block and the brake assembly would be the best 2 parts to check since the clutch and motor coupler have already been replaced.
