I have a maytag centennial washer. It will go thru the wash cycle until it gets to drain and spin. I will not advance from there. We have replaced the shift actuator and the drain hose is not plugged. What is wrong??
Since the unit will not drain or spin you will want to test the lock switch solenoid and make sure that the resistance is between 85-155 ohms. If not then you would need to replace the lock assembly. Also check to make sure that the drain pump is getting power when it goes into the drain and spin and if there is power then the drain motor if not running or if running is either clogged or bad.
Washer will not spin or agitate. I have replaced the Dogs and the clutch. The coupler seems to be okay. The washer sounds like it should be spinning. It pumps down to motor is good. Any suggestions?
In most cases when the unit is not spinning or agitating but will drain and the motor is running when the unit should agitate and spin then the motor coupler would most likely be the issue.
My whirlpool washer just started making a loud "clacking" noise when it starts the spin cycle... repetitive sound and it does not actually spin any more. Otherwise it works. Do you think this is the motor coupling or would you suggest I start with other repair options? thanks
Answer Cathie, The motor coupling 285753A may be the issue, there could be a bent or broken tab on the coupler making noise and not driving the input shaft. But the issue is most likely in the Clutch assembly 285785 The mounting tabs may be damaged or one of the engagement pawls worn out and not engaging the gears properly to spin the wash tub.
