Washer won't spin on its own

I have a whirlpool ultimate care II washer. It washes normally but won't spin on its own. It only gets spinning when I give the basket a manual twist with my hands.
What could the problem be and how can I fix it?
Thanks it advance for your advice.

My outside unit fan doesn't spin. i hear a clicking noise and a humming but the fan won't spin. i've tried to spin the fan and it spins freely by hand.

You may need a new start capacitor or fan motor.I would have the capacitor checked by a electrician and changed if needed. Good luck and thank you.

The motor needs the bearing do this you will need to get a bottle of oil at your local HVAC supply house that has a long pull out spout on it... then place a few drops of oil on the shaft by the motor... if possible then tilt the unit so that the oil will run back the shaft and then get the motor to run... the oil will work its self into the bearing...this will lube the bearings and free them up... you will have to do this for both sides of the motor...
If the motor has little tubes sticking out also place a few drops of oil in each tube...

My washing won;t agitate or spin, but it will fill with water then pump the water out

sounds like the drive motor is bad or a bearing is out on the drive motor. You could also check the drive belt for wear and slippage.

Motor will not keep running after i help start it turning

Shut the power off to the unit, spin the fan blade to see if it spins freely. If it doesn't spin freely, (there appears to be a little drag when you spin it),the bearings are bad, if it does spin freely, then try moving the motor shaft from side to side if there’s any play in the shaft side to side then the bearings are worn and motor needs replaced. Then, check the capacitor, if it’s bulging even slightly, the capacitor is bad and needs replaced. Most of the time people replace the capacitor if motor seems ok. If capacitor is ok, turn power on to see if the motor is getting the proper voltage, if it is and not trying to run, then the windings are probably open, the motor's bad and needs replaced.

does the blade spin freely with the unit off, if not the may be oil ports on the top and bottom edges of the motor. will it spin with the unit trying to run, if it feels like it is magnetized you need a motor.

Whirlpool portable AC, compressor works, but no exhaust fan

there are 3 possiblities 
  1. something obstructing the lower fan motor (or exhaust motor)
  2. bad fan capacitor
  3. or bad motor
to check any of these you will need to disassemble the unit to get to the blower. there are several screws located at various points on the plastic housing covering the unit. Once removed you should be able to check for motor obstructions visually. for checking the motor and capacitor you will need a volt/ohm meter and ideally a capacitor checker. you could try to spin start the motor while it is powered up this could be a possible sign of a bad capacitor if it will start when you do this or if the motor will spin freely while powered down and will not spin start when powered up. I know that is kind of confusing but its how they work. GO FIGURE.  thanks Peyton

Air conditioner motor

Your condenser fan costs less an $100 if you install it yourself. First with the system on and calling for cooling take a screw driver and spin the fan blade. If the fan comes on then it has a bad bearing, if it doesn't it's electrical. With power off remove the access panel and inspect the wiring etc.. Possible run capacitor.

Fan or capacitor?

I would say the motor is bad but to be sure test the voltage to the motor with a multimeter, you can also phisically spin the motor and if that makes it work a little not as fast and blow enough air then you know its the motor this works if you dont have a multimeter.
