You have a faulty brake motor. It pulls in and releases the brake. When pulled right it it contacts a switch which lets the other actions like washing and spinning to occur. $77 to $86 off ebay or appliance stores. turn off ac. remove back off machine. reach around left side of frame at the bottom of the tub and push the brake forward manually and let the little plastic retainer turn sideways and release the wire rope retainer that comes out of the brake motor. remove the power cable to the brake motor by pulling out the connector on the right side under the tub. remove the two 8mm screws retaining the brake motor and remove the brake motor. reverse procedure with new item.
enjoy uninterrupted washes!

After the water pumps out on each of the cycles the spin does not go or start and it gets stuck there.
