Q:

my washer wont spin out how do I fix it WTW5310SQ0 Whirlpool Residential washer

A:

Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com

I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is trouble with the washer. 

Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Whirlpool model number wtw5310sq0.
 
The part you need to replace is called the "coupling".   It is 2 plastic pieces with a rubber piece in the middle.   You will find it on the washer between the motor and the transmission.   It is what spins the tub.
 
 
 If you have further questions please let me know.
Thanks for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com

I know that it can be very difficult to have issue with your washer. By what you have stated, it sounds like a lid switch failure. The lid has to be closed for the motor to on the washer. If the lid switch is faulty, it will act as if the lid is not closed. On this model, make sure the lid hinge screws are tight. If the screws are loose, the hinge might not activate the lid switch. A quick check you can do is to run a cycle with the lid switch jumped. If the washer operates, the lid switch needs to be replaced.

To jump the lid switch you need to unplug the washer and open the console. I have provided you with the instructions for opening the console below. Once you have the console open, locate the connector for the lid switch. Place an insulated jumper between the gray and white wires. Not the green it is a ground and will cause a short. After inserting the jumper make sure it will not touch anything metal, plug the washer in. Then start the washer in a cycle, and let it go. If the washer completes the cycle, you need to replace the lid switch. Do not leave the jumper in while you are waiting for the part. The jumper is only of the test.

To you replace the lid switch you have to remove the cabinet of the washer. The instructions for that are also in the image below. Once the cabinet is removed you can take the screws out securing the lid switch and remove the harness from the clips along the underside of the cabinet. Then reinstall the lid switch in the reverse order. Before you reassemble the cabinet, please read the instructions for installing the cabinet provided in the image. If you don't feel comfortable in performing this repair yourself, just click on this link to schedule services: Sears Home Services. I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Do you hear anything coming from the motor, like a humming or buzzing. Take the cabinet off of the unit and try to run a spin cycle. See if the motor is trying to engage the transmission. Let me know what you see.
