Whirlpool Gold Ultimate Care II Direct Drive Spin issue . . . please hurry, she's l...

24 November 2010 - 01:22 PM

Ok, she basically will spin on very light loads. Heavier, but normal loads are requiring a helping hand, ie. manualing grabbing the basket and turning it. Eventually this will work but seems to becoming less effective. I've looked at every solution/problem on this site and can't figure out which one it is. I at first suspected it was the most common problem; a worn out motor coupling. But upon pulling it and inspecting it, it appears to have zero wear on either the plastic studs or the rubber housing. So it on to the transmission, clutch, basket drive, or tub drive block (according to site info). What other things can I do to trouble shoot this problem? Damn transmmission is expensive and the basket drive isn't cheap either. Hope you guys can "lighten" my worries . . . Thanks.

Whirpool Washer GSW9800PW0

My first time having to post but not my first time to the site. Always good info here.

Like I said, I need to fix this thing soon cause I don't want to go hang out at the local mat w/da hoodlums and bruddas-especially on a weekend. The washer will not run on any of the 3-4 wash cycles but will run on all the rinse and spin cycles (if I let it). Guess I have a bad run circuit within the circuit board? I need a fix soon . . . What say you. Thanks all.
