No washer will spin when the lid is up. If the lid is down and it still wont spin, the first thing to check is the lid switch. If it's bad, the washer will think the lid is up all the time. You'll need to remove the front panel of the washer to see it. Here is the switch to order.

SOURCE: -no agitation

Hello
Welcome to Fixya
My name is Huum,


All functions operate normally except the machine will not agitate
.

The agitator is driven by a couple of different methods. The first is the agitator is splined and slips onto the matching splines of the agitator shaft from the transmission. The second is the use of a bell coupling which is splined to the agitator shaft as well and the agitator snaps onto the coupling. If the agitator does not agitate, first remove the agitator and watch the agitator shaft to see if it is working properly. This wil require a small load setting of water and the machine set to run. If the agitator shaft is working properly, it is either the splines on the agitator or the bell coupling that is defective. If the agitator shaft does not work properly, the problem is in the transmission.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Ultimate Care HD Plus Model #LSR8233EQ0 won't agitate or spin

It sounds like the coupling between the motor and gearbox has worn out. It should cost around $15 plus shipping and handling.

SOURCE: GE washer GNSR2140A0WW wont spin/agitate but fills and drains

Hello, your problem is going to be with the lids switch, in this machine it is going to be a magnetic contact. You can confirm this my pulling the front panel off and accessing the wireing to the lids switch, If you have electrical knowledge bypass the lid switch using a wire nut and run the machine. If all is ok make sure you relpace the lid switch since it is there for a reason. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!!!

Wont spin, drain or agitate


the transmission is either burnt out or the freaky looking belt that turns the pump is off. or the switch that tells the unit that the top lid is down sometimes comes loose cause some companies used a caulk like substance to keep the foot attached to the switch as slid away from where it is and the lid is not pressing that foot down to close the circuit and tell the tranny its safe to spin etc. You can fill with the lid open but not spin. There is a motor that controls all the spinning and draining or agitation and if something in their design is opening the circuit it wont perform those functions.
another idea is the timer motor isn't making contact and you might have to replace that..... there are tons of issues that can cause that.

Will not spin on any rinse cycle


Hi, This washer does not have a belt. While the washer is agitating, if you lift the lid will it stop? Some models will agitate but not spin if the lid is up. It sounds to me like the lid switch might be going bad.
If you will get me a model #, I can look this up for you and give you a better idea.

I have a Kenmore washer tube wont move to spin out


Hi, Do you know if the washer agitated at all? If the washer does not agitate or spin, the coupler is most likely the cause. If the washer agitates and does not spin, it could be spin basket drive or transmission.
Please let me know so I can assist you further.

Kenmore washer 80 series 110 model not spinning.


unless your washer is over 20 years old, then it wont have a belt. the temperature of the water wont have anything to do with it spinning or not.
need to know if it agitates or drains and just wont spin.
if it agitates but no spin or drain, then you have a bad lid switch.
if it wont agitate or spin, but will drain, then you have a broken drive coupling.

Kenmore 70 series washer


to answer your first problem,

if it wont stop filling, then the pressure switch is either defective,
or the hose that is attached to the drum to the pressure switch was either pulled out or had an opening either it breaks or it cracks.

that would not transfer the filling mode to agitate mode.

the second problem that it wont drain and spin now is another issue but might be resolve if you solve the first problem.

tnx 4 using fixya,
