I have an older (2003 purchase) Whirlpool top laod washer that is awesome. Except that it is now spinning so weakly that it isn't removing any water from the clothes. Had a repair guy look it over and he replaced a part (didn't advise on what part) and declared the washer fixed. It wasn't. Probably spun great at his shop with no load. Once we load the clothes, they are close to dripping at end of cycle.

Ask him what part he replaced, you should of got a receipt of the part he replaced. I always give my customers receipts and put the part number on the receipt of what part/parts I replaced.

I'd first check your motor coupler and see if its worn out(rubber shavings on your floor) or if any of the plastic fingers on it have broken.

Here's the motor coupling for your model:
285753A Motor Coupling


If your motor couple looks fine, then you'd need a new clutch. Whenever I replace the clutch I always replace the basket drive assembly as well, as they both work together.

Here's the clutch for your model:
285785 Clutch Assembly


Here is the basket drive assembly for your model:

Videos to replace each part are included on each part page.

Let us know how it goes.:)
