If the spin setting is not working chances are that your lid switch is bad. The lid switch is a safety feature installed that makes it so that unless the lid is closed the machine won't go into spin. This keeps from allowing the spin to shoot water all over the place if the lid is up. It is an easy fix though and very cheap. There are two panels on the side of the control panel. If you pop those off with a flat head screw driver you will find a screw holding down that control panel on each side. Remove those and then lay the panel back. Next insert the flat head under the front of the machine where the crack is at about an inch from the top of the machine. Pop it up and you will see the lid switch there underneath there. Remove it and follow to where it connects in the panel and disconnect and then install the new one. It should work fine again for you. Let me know if you have any other questions.

SOURCE: washer won't drain or spin
top loader ??? or front loader??? if top loader you have broken your lid switch, will fill, agitate, but when it comes to drain/spin for safety reasons if the unit doent recognize the lid closed it will not advance...if yo have a front loader then i would suspect that something has gotten into the pump assy and preventing drainiing of water therefore will not spin

sounds like drain is plugged. this is a fairly easy fix,and you actually get paid to do it. unscrew the bottom panel of your washer should be 3 screws on the very bottom then you will see a white plug that is about 2 1/2" unscrew it (make sure you have a bowl under it water will leak ) and pull it out. this is where you get paid you will find all kinds of change and junk just clean it out reinstall and your clothes will be a lot drier after the spin cycle

If you think the wash load is in a spin cycle of the wash cycle or rinse cycle place the machine in Spin Only cycle and see if it will complete.
