Does not spin in spin cycle or does not spin fast enough
Hello, I have an Inglis Whirlpool large capacity top load washing machine. I bought it new in 2006 which makes it a 10 yr old machine. I'm having 2 problems with it now. First: the spin cycle will either spin too slow to get the water out or it doesn't spin at all. I reset it by unplugging it for a few minutes & plugging it back in & opening/closing the lid a few times then running it through a small cycle, which it then spins. (I read resetting it like that can help, which it did for a while) I wash a new load & sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. It agitates fine in wash cycle. I've been washing only a couple items at a time hoping it'll spin, but it doesn't. So I do the lid reset & try again. Most times now, it doesn't work.
Second: almost every time at the beginning of the spin cycle it'll start adding water! Then it'll go into the spin cycle after. Sometimes it spins, slowly, but most times it doesn't spin at all. Please help. I don't have the money to buy a new one so I'm really hoping I can fix it myself
Is this a good question?
