During the spin cycle the water drains but it doesn't spin. Clothes were stuck to the sides of the washer but completely soaked.
if your washer will fill up and make the sound like its working, but not agitate, and it drains the water, but will not spin..The most likely culprit is a broken drive coupling. I would fill it up on a small load and see if it does what I said.....if so, lean the washer over so you can work under the front of it. there will be two clips that hold the pump on..remove those, but remember how they came off...pull the pump off the motor and set to the left side. .. next, there are usually two screws in the two clips that hold the motor on. Remove those screws and remove those two clips making sure you see how to re-install them.. while removing the last motor clip, be careful as the motor will fall out....on the one side of motor will be a coupling...this may have a broken ear or be split..its possible, it will be ok...now, look into area where the motor fits and you will see a black round piece of rubber with holes in it..this sits over another coupling on the transmission shaft...this is either broken, or the motor coupling is or a combo of both. if broken, remove and order yourself a drive coupling..re-install and put everything back in reverse order..when installing these you will have to drive them on with something that fits between the center of the new coupling, so you do not break the ears off..I use a deepdish socket....it works well with installing the new coupling on the transmission..........if by any chance the coupling does not look broken, its possible to be rounded and slipping on the shaft..if you determine its not...then the basket drive or transmission is gone out...this time you will need a service person to repair......Bruce Denton ps..if you find out i was correct , please let me know here..thanks
