A:

From what you�re describing "the water drains out but does not spin" the motor is moving in the spin direction or the unit will not drain. The pump on this model is directly driven by the motor. It sounds like clothing is stuck between the tubs or the transmission spin bearing is seized up. You should have smelled the belt burning with this symptom. No need to check voltage if the motor�s running.

Remember to disconnect power before attempting access.

I am sending you the wiring diagram outlining the path of voltage for both agitate & spin.

A:

The first image below shows the wiring diagram with the spin function traced. The lid switch is the most likely cause of this failure.

The second image shows how to access the lid switch in this washer. Unplug the washer before accessing internal components . If you are able to access the lid switch, you can check the wiring and the continuity through this switch. If the switch is bad, you can order a new one from the Sears PartsDirect website.

The third image shows how access the console. If the lid switch is okay, you could have a bad timer or a wiring failure in the console.

These tips may help you repair this washer failure. If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will try to assist you further.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
