Customer Question

during the spin cycle, the washer does not kick into the higher spin rate. It keeps attempting, but does not give it a good spin.

This sounds like a door lock sensor that has gone bad. I will need the make and model number of your unit to confirm this.

It's not the door lock. It's a top loading Whirpool, portable washer. I won't accept this answer.
