The washing machine does not spin but its not the belt. It dies all the other functions except that. what can be the problem and what is the solution?


If the machine will spin but not agitate, then the transmission needs to be checked. You should probably get an estimate from an appliance tech to see if it is better to replace the part or the machine.

the motor is most likely the cause. once it starts to hum, it's not spinning :( bad brushes inside. replace the motor or get new dryer, sorry :(

If the belt and the motor are OK, then tell your friend to check the motor coupler, the MCU (motor control unit).
