Hi Bryan,


The machine spins all the time, even when its supposed to be agitating. Its like its stuck in "spin" It starts spinning right after the tub fills, and also spins when its in the spin cycle.

The model number is:wcxr1070taww


Expert:  Bryan replied 9 years ago.
you have a bad transmission. unfortunately. I've seen this allot on this model the transmission has a spin lock in it and these break inside transmission, you have to replace transmission to repair this may be more than the machine is worth, my recommendation is to buy a whirlpool top load no frills washer. don't buy front load or you will be worst off then you are now.sorry i don't have better news. hope this helps though. thanks Bryan

Thank you Bryan...

I had a hunch that might be the problem, but wasn't sure how to go about diagnosing it, and you are also correct about the value of the washer...


Thanks again,
