My Whirlpool washer won't spin. It goes through all of the cycles as it should, but when it comes time to spin after the rinse cycle nothing happens. It only drains the water. Can anyone help me? I really don't want to call a repair man.

** My Whirlpool washer won't spin. **

You're going to need to post the machine's model number so we can look up what design of Whirlpool washer you have. Whirlpool has a number of different washers on the market.

You can find tips for locating the model and serial number identification tag on your appliances at the following link:

Does the timer continue to move to the end of the cycle or does it stop too???

This is in reply to my reply. Yes, the timer does continue to the end of the cycle. The wash before it stopped spinning was making a loud thumping sound during the spin cycle. I thought it was only because the load was on one side of the washer. I didn't check because that has happened before. I hope this is the right model #- 4213964. I found it on the underside of the lid. The "basket" (the part where you put the clothes) seems to be off track.

** when it comes time to spin after the rinse cycle nothing happens.... Yes, the timer does continue to the end of the cycle. **

So it DOES do something.

** I hope this is the right model #- 4213964. **

No it isn't, that is a 'part' number of something, maybe the piece or paper you got it off? The model and serial number tag will actually say "Model No." then give it and also say "Serial No." then give it. Both will usually be letters and numbers.

** was making a loud thumping sound during the spin cycle. **

That might have been caused by a problem in the transmission... depending on the model of washer you have and how it was designed.

Sorry I can't be much more help without the proper model number to look up what design it is.

Mine started doing exactly the same thing today, no spin but drains and finishes the cycle. Also makes the clunking noise. My model # is LSR5132HQ1.

** no spin **

Is it still able to agitate now?

** but drains and finishes the cycle. **

I assume you just mean the timer *advances to the off position*? Because you said it wasn't spinning which would normally be part of the cycle.
