Whirlpool tub spins but does not rinse

This is a top load 8 year old coin operated washing machine.

Machine fills,washes and agitates normally through the wash cycle.

At the end of the wash cycle, water drains completely. From that point on, only a little

bit of water goes in (less than a gallon) and the tub spins continuously without stopping until the end of both the rinse and spin cycles. Clothes have been rung but not rinsed leaving soap marks on clothes.

Cause 1. Water Supply Hoses Bent:

Be sure that the hoses that supply water to your washer are not bent or crimped. Sometimes when the washer is pushed back into place the hoses get bent and cannot let the proper amount of water into your washer. Check to be sure the water supply hoses are not being restricted.

Cause 2. Water Supply Valves Not Fully Open:

There should be 2 water valves on the wall behind your washer. If one or both (Hot and cold) water valves are not fully in the open position, this can cause a rinse issue. Be sure that both the water supply valves are FULLY open.

Cause 3. Switch or Control Board Malfunction:

Your washer uses a switch or a control board to change wash functions. A malfunctioning switch or control board can make your washer not rinse at all. A bad switch or control board can also stop your washer right before the rinse cycle begins. Check the function switch with a meter to see if it is causing the issue. The control board can be looked at to see if there are loose wire harnesses or any burn marks.
