Whirpool Washer WTW4800BQ0 tub spins freely while off
Model Number: WTW4800BQ0 Brand:
1 - 5 years
I was washing a load of clothes and I heard a loud pop sound while washer was beginning to spin up or spin down... I am not sure what honestly... I went to investigate but couldn't be certain where it was in cycles. I had to cancel wash cycle to get lid open because it stays locked during whole wash cycle... Once the draining happened it let me into washer. It sounded like the spin cycle started and the tub is tried to ramp up speed for like 2-5 secs then it sounds like the motor automatically starts decelerating and clicks and go to next stage or cycle... so washer doesn't get spin the water out of clothing... it is odd. I do know once I got all the clothes out... and investigated further. The tub spins freely while machine is off with just a lil push with my hand... no restriction at all... which seems very odd. Never seen that before. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks ahead of time for any help that can be provided.
