tha model number doesn't come up,you need to send the full number off of the washer,open the door and lok around the opening where you put the clothes in,you should see a tag with the model number on it,if the pump doesn't drain out the water then it can't spin until the water is drained,if it's a front load washer check the pump to see if something is in the pump stopping the impellar from spinning to drain out the water or you could have a bad pump,put the washer or drain and spin and see if it will drain.

Washer will not spin

Post back with the model number, there are different drive systems.

It can be a bad door switch, if the machine does not think the door is shut, it won't spin.

Could be a bad belt, if it has a belt.

Can be a bad timer on the control panel.

If your model has a drain pump and the gate valve does not open it won't spin.

This is why you post the model.

Washing machine washes then will not spin HELP HELP dirty clothes

When you set "the timer to drain and spin only". After "drain" program finished - not pump or motor sound or all sound stoped, the machine is freeze?

The meaning is sometimes, the sensor of water level doesn't working properly. The "drain" program is keeping running.

Check the lid switch could be bad or have a bad connection. The lid switch is to keep it from spinning with the door open. If it won't drain it won't spin it may have a hose blocked or the pump is not working. Check if the motor runs after it agitates. If it does is the pump turning? Check all hoses , from tub to pump, from pump to drain, check for sewer blockage. A sock or something could be in the hose from the tub to the pump, or in the pump not letting it drain. If it is agitating the coupler must be ok. Hope this helps.

Washing macine won't drain.

Door switch problem. The switch is either cracked or broken and not registering as closed. If the unit is most likely also not spinning too.
If the unit DOES in fact spin, then the hose is kinked or clogged. But i believe it isn't spinning too.
Replace the door switch.

Water doesn't drain

you could have a bad drain pump.
have you checked the hoses that come from the bottom of the tub to the drain pump for anything that might be stuck in there,also check the hose that comes off the drain pump to the wall and look for an obstruction.
