The washer will not spin in high speed.
It agitates, drains and spins with the normal speed.
Originally it would not spin at all (agitated and drained) but I noticed that the plastic part of the lid sensor was broken so the lid hinge was unable to turn the sensor properly. I removed the sensor and blocked it with a small screw driver so now it is ON all the time. I also removed the washer cabinet. After this change the washer spins with the normal speed (I see the clutch is spinning) but when it comes to the high speed cycle it does not spin at all.
In this stage the motor works, the water pump works (water drained), but the clutch is not spinning and the basked is locked (I cannot even rotate it with my hands). The noises generated in this stage are like the washer wants to spin but something is blocked not allowing to spin. At the same time the timer is progressing its cycle.
- I removed the water pump and motor. The coupling is in a perfect condition. All around looks like new.
The only suspicious observation is: small amount of oil droplets inside the cabinet on the side walls about 5 inches from the bottom.
I am not sure what test to complete next. I have read everything I could find about Whirlpool washers spinning problems in this forum and on the WEB in general but still not sure which component should I replace in this case.
I will appreciate your advice.
