How do i fix my washer that won't drain or spin dry during the wash cycle?

+1 vote

I have a whirlpool brand washer which was working great for the past 8 years until now when it suddenly wouldn't go past the Rinse or Spin cycle. When i started the washing cycle, all things seemed fine with the water filling correctly. The washer inner center Rotator was able to turn to start the washing cycle. After a while, i was surprised when the washer became quiet and wouldn't work at all. I looked at the dial controller for the washing cycle and found that the dial stopped somewhere near the rinse cycle part. This was the time that the water was supposed to start draining and then the spin dry function would be kicking in after that. But for some strange reason, the washer simply just stops working when it came to the rinse cycle.

So i turned back the dial controller again to restart the wash cycle, the washer starts to turn the center rotator again and i thought it should work good now. I was wrong, the washer stopped again when it came to draining the water cycle time. I tried unplugging the washer and opening and closing the lid of the washer several times, as someone told me that would work to reset the washer machine. No luck though with all those tricks and tips. i do not want to have to call a repairman to fix my washer as i know they charge a hefty price just for coming to take a look at the machine. Their labor fees is sometimes more than the parts itself. If i could fix it myself, i wouldn't need to spend money on the repairman fees. For now, it seems that i would need to leave the water and the clothes in the washer drum inside until i figure out how i could drain out the water by completing the washing cycle.

My washer looks somwhat like the one below but it is not the same one, just similar one:
