    Whirlpool Washer Spin
    I have a whirlpool washer that will not go into final spin.
    You have to manual turn the tub clockwise about two turns,
    Re-set the switch to final spin, close the lib, then it will go into final spin.
    What is the problem or do I need to replace the switch.

    Thank YOu;

    "re-set the switch to final spin, close the lib,"

    When did you open the lid? The lid must be closed for it to go into spin.

    If the lid is closed, then Im still not leaning towards the lid switch, as it is apparently going into its first spin. Based on what you said, Im kind of leaning towards the timer, but check that lid switch first.
