My Whirlpool washer doesn’t spin the clothes dry

Possible part needed

An item such as a sock stuck between the tub and the basket will cause tension and may cause the basket to spin slowly.If you don’t find anything stuck between the tub and basket, you likely need to replace the clutch.  A worn clutch is a very common problem with Whirlpool direct drive washers. If you are having trouble diagnosing your direct drive washer, you can purchase a service manual here.  The service manual will help you successfully diagnose your washer.
