Our not-too-old Whirlpool washer won't drain or spin...just holds the
water and will agitate if the dial is moved back. Any ideas? Please
help us think fast...if we can't fix it we're liable to buy a new one
Maybe something with the door switch. Some models will not drain or
spin unless the door switch is closed, but will still agitate with the
door open. Check to see if its broken or stuck. Or,if your handy you
can bypass it temporarily. But only if you know what yuour doing.
With it on a cycle where it should be draining or spinning, press the button
for the door down with a pencil eraser or something else that will fit in
the hole. If that works, you can rig something up to make the plunger on
the door itself a little longer. That will carry you until you have a
chance to replace the switch itself.
No model# posted....but if the lid switch or lid switch probe is broken
on some WLP washers the washer will fill and agitate but will go dead
in the drain and spin modes.
Something that may help.
