Whirlpool Washer skips rinse cycle
« on: May 17, 2016, 11:03:49 AM »

Hello, Working on a Whirlpool Washer Model # WTW5500XW and it starts out in sensing and washes in this cycle and then goes to wash and drains and then it goes to rinse and just advances to spin then after it spins out the water its done-never rinses in that cycle... The main control??
Thanks

Did you put it in dignostic?
Any codes?
Run auto test?
Run recalibration?
Run tach test?
Did you spin the tub? does it spin freely? Any growl to the tub bearing?

Is your drain pipe backed up or  possibly siphoning?

Thanks for the input, turns out that this particular model does not do a full fill rinse on all the cycles, after going through I found that the other cycles just do a spray rinse!
Thanks for you help Patricio and mz3own
