Question about Washing Machines
It sounds like it's spinning, but the clothes come out wet. it drains, but won't turn to spin
The symptoms you describe are typical of a broken motor coupling. The following link explains how to replace one:
The motor coupling resides in between the drive motor and gearcase (transmission). They often can wear out over time and break. Some of the original couplers were made totally of plastic and the center hole would either round out and free spin on the motor shaft, or crack and shear apart. Manufacturers have since come out with a new improved coupler with a steel grommet in the center that resists breaking. The part number is included in the link I provided.
If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know before rating the solution. I hope this helps you.
