When the washer spins out, IF I HAVE USED A LOW WATER LEVEL, the
clothes come out soggy.
If I run the machine again, AND RAISE THE WATER LEVEL TO HIGH OR EXTRA
HIGH, the clothes spin out just fine.
I have a direct drive two speed and it only does four things: fill,
agitate, empty, and spin.
Does anyone have a best estimate of the problem?
No, same amount of clothes. I underload since overloading will ruin a
machine faster than anything else.
I run a shelter and do several animal loads each day. I am thinking the
pet hair etc clog the pump and the load needs a lot of water to clear
I am also thinking I am no candidate for a low water energy saver
Thank you so much for referring me to applianceguru.com
It diagnosed my problem exactly. It said basically that if you own a
Whirlpool and it isn't spinning (I do and and it isn't anymore...), you
have a broken coupler.
"Many whirlpool-made washers us a small, relatively inexpensive
device called a motor cojpling. This plastic-and-rubber component is
mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission
on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that
happens, you need to replace it complete."
You just saved me $100!
