ok so if you get NO codes and or flashing lights ,and the unit does drain all the water out .

what makes you think the unit is not getting up to full spin speed?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The sound of washer spinning doesn't speedup. Clothes are soaking wet after cycle. Didn't do this before.
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

ok What cycle are you using?

Does it do this every time you use the washer?

And how many clothes are in the washer?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Tried different cycles. SMALL amount of clothes-6 items. Does same thing EVERY cycle.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Tried different cycles even with NO clothes in washer. Spin speed doesn't increase.
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

ok if it is doing it in every cycle and you are not seeing any error codes the issue has to be within the electronic control board.

And the control will need to be replaced .
