Washer doesn't spin long...

Washer doesn't spin long enough

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of your washing machine? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

Its a whirlpool high efficiency low water washer just two yearsold

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Had a repairman here and he said that the motor was making the water warm and he said there was a little oil on bottom of unit and put some sort of surge proecton electrical hook up

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

He said would be better off with a front load

I will do my best to take the information that you provide to me and make a Diagnosis for you to be able to repair your own Appliance.
Please note it takes time to type and add links so please be patient.

I may also be assisting you along with other customers so there may be a delay in responses to do not panic just wait for my reply thank you.

Can I please have the Full model number of the unit to better assist you ?

None of the numbers you have given are the model number.

Just the part number of the use and care booklet .

The model number is ***** the lid at the rear of the opening on top loaders .If you open the washer lid ,
the model /serial tag is at the rear of the opening on the washer itself.

what is the 24 dollars for i paid 5dollars for what every time i turn around it cost me paid90. to repair man and could not fixit I'm 87 years old want to know if it is repairable and who could you recommend to fix it .;
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 2 months ago

ok First I have to say something about this Repair person you had out !!

The is NO way that the motor could make the water warm !! since the motor and the water never come in contact with each other.

But yes this new EPA guideline (washer designs are terrible ),but the washer manufacturers have to meet the new EPA guidelines to be able to sell washer in the U.S.

As for the washer not spinning long enough , the washer spins by the electronic control board software.

and if your saying it is not spinning long enough I assume the clothes come out dripping wet is this correct?

Just ignore them !

Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 2 months ago

And getting back to the repair person it is a good idea to add a surge protector on the outlet that the washer is plugged into as it is with any appliance that is electronically controlled .

Now I`m just wanting on why you think the washer is not spinning long enough to be answered .
