You have a broken shock absorber and you need to relpace it. Remove the lower inspection panel by unscrewing the 2 screw at the bottom of the panel below the door. Remove the panel and look inside on either side of the wash tub. You will see the 2 shock absorbers and one or both will be broken. There are 2 plastic pins holding them in place. On the pointed end of the plastic pin, there is a tab that needs to be depressed (use a flat screwdriver) so that when you pull on the other side with a plier, the pin will come out. Go buy the replacement shock absorbers at your local appliance shop. To install, put the absorber in place and push in the plastic pins. Make sure the correct end is up. Replace the front panel and the job is done.

There's an auxiliary switch in the door lock.switch assembly that is activated at the end of the wash cycle for the machine to advance to the spin cycle. The machine will NEVER advance to the spin cycle unless the auxiliary switch is activated as a safety feature to prevent the door from opening during a high-speed spin cycle that may result in physical injury. The drum tumbles back and forth while the machine control checks the auxiliary if activated but since it's not, the control will not command the motor speed control to spin the drum at high speed. These symptoms may indicate a faulty door lock/switch assembly and may need replacement.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(Start by this!)
I always recommend buying a replacement as belts are not expensive- sorry I do not know how much yours would cost- and are easy to be changed by a competent person (assuming a front loader!):-
REMOVE POWER FROM THE MACHINE AND REMOVE THE BACK.
The motor support bolts should be loosened and the old belt removed. Often putting the new belt on is a bit of a struggle, even with the motor 'loose', because it is new and smaller!
Once on it should be tensioned by pulling the motor against the belt firmly- but not over tight- and the motor support bolts tightened.
ON NO ACCOUNT SHOULD ANY FORM OF LEVERAGE BE USED TO TENSION THE BELT. THAT COULD LEAD TO DAMAGE TO THE BELT, MOTOR AND BEARINGS- EXPENSIVE!
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
