Hi! I have a question regarding the spin cycles on my Whirlpool Gold top load washer. The first issue we noticed was that the clothes were coming out very wet; the pump was working fine and draining the tub, but it wasn't spinning. I checked and replaced the drive coupler (worn but not broken). The unit seemed to run fine for a few days, then the issue recurred. I ordered and replaced the clutch assembly, but my test run revealed a problem. I ran the unit through a cycle with the lid open and switch manually held closed so I could observe the cycle. I noticed that at the end of the wash/agitation stage, the motor would run and the pump would remove the water, but the basket would not spin. I opened the switch (as though I would be opening the lid) and closed it again, and the basket started to spin without issue. The same thing happened at the end of the rinse cycle...pump comes on and starts emptying the basket, but does not spin until I release the switch and then close it again, then it works fine. The high spin cycle starts and runs fine. It seems to me that the basket brake may not be disengaging properly until the lid switch is opened. Does the basket brake engage during the agitation cycles to prevent the basket from turning during agitation? It appears to be the case since it's only after agitation that the spin does not occur...when going from the rinse spin to high spin it works fine. If that's the case, what could be the culprit with the brake? Weak spring? Any help is greatly appreciated!

What part/parts causes the agitator to quit agitating when the machine goes into spin cycle? I have cleaned the clutch lining- no apparent damage. I also cleaned the brake assembly no apparent damage. I have another machine (RoperRTW4100SQ1) which appears to have the same mechanical parts and when the Roper machine goes into spin cycle, the agitator spins with the tub assembly. The machine that is giving a problem wants to continue to agitates when it goes into spin cycle making loud noises. Can you tell me what is wrong with the problem washer? Thanks Don

My Kenmore washing machine will fill with water fine. When the wash cycle begins, it will agitate for about 15-20 seconds and then stop. At this point, advancing the timer does nothing. If I shut off the washer, come back after about 5 minutes and turn it on again, it does the same thing. Agitate for a few seconds and stop. Also, if I shut it off, come back after a few minutes, advance the timer to spin, and turn on it will spin and drain slowly for about 20 seconds and stop. Please help.

Hi, The laundry on this machine often comes out soaking wet. The pump drains fine. I read that these are the typical signs of a worn out clutch assembly so I replaced the clutch assembly 285785 but there has not been an improvement. Does a defective or worn out Brake Assembly have the same symptoms as a worn out clutch assembly? Thanks.

My washer spins on the rinse cycle but I do not think it is spinning fast enough to remove all the water from the clothes. The last few loads of lanudry are coming out to wet. The last load after it completed I could smell a burnt smell. I do not see a drive belt on this model. So would this be the "Basket Drive and Brake Assembly AP3094539"? Thanks Rick

My washer makes a loud noise when it is stopping. My husband thinks it might be the brake because it happens when the spin is about done and getting ready to stop. Only had this washer for a few years.

The washer doesn't spin in rinse cycle. Coupler is good, drive block is also good. Washer makes loud screeching and grinding noise when in rinse & spin cycle. Please help! Thanks, Sam.

OK - we seem to be going in circles here. I wasn't asking about the lid switch. I know that works fine. I was asking if there's a way to bypass the water level switch so that I can test the motor. I also have been asking (and haven't gotten an answer yet), HOW does the motor transfer through to the basket in Spin Cycle? I keep asking questions and I keep getting answers that basically say to replace every part I ask about. That is NOT good diagnostic procedure ... and is quite expensive. IF the motor works, AND if the transmission works as designed, AND if the clutch and coupler are all in perfect shape ... WHAT NEXT!? HOW do I identify what part has FAILED to keep the machine from spinning the drum in spin cycle, when ALL ELSE WORKS!!??
