The washer is one of the most used and important appliances in the home. The washer not spinning can be most frustrating. I did find some information for you that I am hoping will help you until your expert responds. I am adding the link below to help you with your question while you wait for your expert response.

Thank you for submitting your question. The third link provided I believe is your answer. Due to the spin cycle starting by the slamming of the lid, it may be an issue with your lid switch. I recommend testing the lid switch to verify. The switch can be checked two ways. The first way is with a volt/ohm meter and you can check continuity across the two terminals on the switch. The circuit should show open and closed as the lid is open and closed. If you have no meter then the lid switch can be bypassed to see if it is the problem. The idea is to remove both of the wires from the lid switch and join (jump) them together with a small wire. With the lid switch bypassed you can see if the washer will drain and spin. The image below shows how to remove the cabinet to access the lid switch but look at the center of the instructions to see how to bypass the lid switch. Remember to unplug the washer before access and checking the lid switch. Please reply back to this thread with your results for further assistance. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Thanx for the info, Tykara! As it turns out, replacing the clutch didn't help. I'll try this lid switch fix you've recommended. Wish me luck!

OK, tried jumping the switch. No dice. The drain cycle started without the drum spinning. I had to remove/replace the jump (same net effect as opening/closing the lid) in order for the drum to start spinning again. There's something about the switch tripping off and back on that's enabling something in the mechanism down below to either engage, or perhaps disengage. Any additional suggestions? Thanx again for your time... ...Dave

Dave, apologize for the wait and inconvenience. You're going to need to check the motor and motor coupling. Check the motor coupling for damaged or worn gears. If the coupling checks out okay, then you'll need to make some voltage checks to the motor to see if it's weakening. The link below will instruct you on how to test your motor. Please reply back with your results.

Thanx for posting the link. I just saw something around 4:00 that might answer my question. When the water's draining, the drum isn't spinning. I thought it was supposed to, as when I lift the lid and put it back down to restart the drain cycle, the drum then spins. Before I go any further, please verify whether the drum should be spinning or not as the water drains. Perhaps I never had problem all along?

The unit is not suppose to drain and spin at the same time. Now during the spin cycle the washer will drain any excess water to spin the clothing dryer but that's about it. But it will not spin as the washer is draining the tub.
