Whirlpool top loader sm8525079 rev A will not go into spin mode

No spin, try these:

Using a multi meter check for continuity the door switch, which when bad may not allow agitation or spin. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically.

Check the clutch, brake assembly and transmission, one way to check for slipping is to get under the machine after a spin cycle ( this is if u get a lil spin but not much leaving clothes still wet) mix in a spray bottle a lil water and some dish detergent, then spray it on the clutch assembly ( the metal round pc. Connected to the tranny) if it sizzles and steams up then u know its bad and slipping. Another way to check clutch if u get no spin at all? Is to take it out and use ur hand to try and turn the inner spring assembly pushing it around the inside? If its very easy, it BAD should be hard to push by hand.

Next check the motor coupler which engages the tub and tranny to the motor. ( if its bad u usually get no wash or spin or very little of either)

Next check for a loose, worn or broken belt if belt driven.

On some front load models u may need to check the STATOR assembly.
The stator is essentially one half of a motor, it interacts with the tub by creating a strong electro-magnet. If the stator burns out the washer won't spin or agitate. Check the stator for continuity. This part is often misdiagnosed.

My Whirlpool model sm8525079 will not spin. It will make a humming noise that I assume is the agitator but no real clue. It will drain though.

this is not a modle #,try raising the lid if a top loader and look low center under lid. if top load you may have a broken drive coupling.pretty easy fix once you get cabinet off.2 phillips up front on older on back on some,all at the very out side edge of control panel,some newer have end caps to remove for front screws.newer have spring clips.use putty knife between washer top and panel out side edge.two spring clips remove pump,two screws and clips remove motor,coupling is next.

Whirlpool Sm8525079 Rev fills up with water, but won't agitate.

Your lid switch has a fault, Sometimes the switch can bend which means that it won't always operate.

A lot noise, when spinning after rinse

Forget the brokenhearted melody........ten years is well past the use by date of most machines. You face a major service or a replacement.
