Whirlpool Cabrio Series 5000 Washing Machine stopped spinning at all, stopped draining now too
Why did my washer stop draining and spinning? I tried clearing out the drain, checked, removed and cleaned the drain pump, ran a diaganostic and ran a recalibration. I am thinking the control actuator or shifter arm is bad but the stupid thing is only a year old.
It WAS the shift actuator. There were apparently several service bulletins, changes to the part and improvements before they got this problem under control. I got the newest part available and I'm up and running again today.
Es esta una buena pregunta?
Did you check the lid switch for continuity and to see if it is being activated when the lid is down?

The lid switch is good, activates and locks and holds down during every operation.

Ok, I had a chance to tear it down a bit. The answer is going to be the shifter arm and the shift actuator. So if someone wants to post that answer I'll accept it. Also, as a helpful tip, there is a hidden maintenance manual taped to the inside of the front panel of that washer, not for use by the consumer. Unless you are one of us, then it is for use by the consumer.

Excellent. Congrats on figuring that out. Out of curiousity, what happened to the parts? In what way did they fail? I'm just trying to build my own knowledge.

After much time of being beat by my washer doing all the diagnostics I used my auto mechanic skills and checked for continuity from the p4 connector to the drain pump connector which it didn't have. So I pulled the plug apart and couldn't believe how cheap the were when designing the harness. It just had the two blue wires clamped in not crimped. So I cut that connector off and crimped on two spade connectors that slip tight over the pins on the pump. Better than whirlpool and washer is fixed. If your having drain and spin issues start at the connector on pump make sure to look at how plug goes into pump mark one wire and the side it goes to so when you cut the connector off u can put wires back where they go once spades are crimped on. Hope this saves someone time.
