whirlpool washer will not spin dry


i have a older,prob 12 years,whirlpool top loader. it will fill and wash but will not drain and spin dry. i have heard that the latch for the top may not be sending a closed signal and requires replacement. does this sound right? any other ideas would be helpful. i dont want to get too deep in this old washer.

Please post the model #.
Yes you may be right, simple enough to check the switch.

If direct drive, the Rubber pieces and plastic fitting that dampen the motor noise between the transmission and vertical shaft may be torn, or the plastic pieces. Move it out of the way and look for oil spots on the floor beneath it. If there is, the transmission is gone. Good news is, the transmissions on these things run about $187-225, the rubber pieces & plastic fittings about $11.

This is the motor coupling I am talking about http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDeta...85753A/1195967 This is what the transmission parts look like http://www.repairclinic.com/Whirlpoo...e-Clutch-Parts

Here's some generic ideas of things to look for. With a model number it will be more specific.

will not drain or spin probably lid switch. Will not spin could either be motor coupling or lid switch. Is the tub still full of water?
