Will Not Spin

Well it just started today,does everything else but spin. Checked the belt and it's fine and the motor turns the pulley on the bottom,just wonder if maybe we have a transmision problem here or something not as drastic going on.

My washer, A612S, does everything correctly but SPIN in the spin cycles. Both belts underneath are fine. The motor pulley spin fine when in the spin cycle, but the belt doesn't. When I turn it off...

the brake it the drum directly above the transmission pulley it is not intergrated into the trans.
in my almost 30 years of repairs in that old and very reliable machine i would find where a article of clothing and floated over the inner tub and has wedged itsefl between the inner and outer tub, their is enough clerance between the tub and tub cover where you could get finger into it and run it around the tub and feel if a piece of clothing is caught. if that isnt the problem then the tub bearing is ceased up and would require repalcing it and the tub seal

Model WJSE4150B2WW ser# AF171808G GE washer agitates but won't spin with front cover off motor turns belt in the right direction for just an instant and then stops interior basket can be turned...

When spinning the motor freezes up and will not spin. I released the motor and took off the belt off and the motor ran fine. However the pulley that the belt is also on will not spin the proper direction, only backwards.

Washer motor spins but not the belt in spin cycle only,

It doesn't spin If your washer won't spin, check these: It doesn't pump or spin It pumps, but doesn't spin It spins only with the lid closed It doesn't pump or spin If it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows: If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt. If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Replaced broken washer belt, but drum still won't spin.

you may have a bad bearing in a pulley,could be motor coupling. Take belt off and spin motor shaft and pulley both ways if it's free, then its more than likely not the motor. Now spin the drum with belt off and see if it does the same as with the belt on if it does it has to be a bad bearing or coupling to the drum. hope this helps

Non-spinning washer

Have you checked the motor? Make sure that the motor is turning properly and also make sure that your belt it not to tight. It should have some give in it. If none of that works then look at the main bearing under the pulley on the drum

Does it agitate? If not. Can you see the motor turning? Is it spinning in the center of the pulley? If the motor is turning and pulley is not the set screw on the pulley has worked loose.

Maytag LAT9757AAE,top load washer won't spin.

Sounds like a sticky brake assy. This type of brake is very tricky and should be checked be a service technician

It's possible to do it yourself but not recommended because of the 200 lb. pressure spring. Hope the diagram will help.

Washer not spinning

Sounds like the brake liner could be broken. When the machine starts to spin, the motor turns in the opposite direction to the wash cycle and causes the bowl to lift off the brake liner and the bowl then spins freely. Either the riser cam is worn/broken or the brake liner is broken. This is quite involved and you may have to call in a tech.
