Slim chance are that the motor winding is broken, electric motor capacitor is dry or the control module is defected.
I would first make sure that the water level in the drum is below the level that will stop spinning from taking place.

If water level is high, check your filter and pump cover. make sure that no coins or other items are not blocking the pump.

If water level is low, you need to check your pressure switch (connected with a rubber tube to the bottom of the drum).

Good luck.

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.

We have a Kenmore Series 80 Top Load washing machine. The problem we have is that after it washes the clothes, it won't spin. Can we fix it?

Sure you can fix it. I suspect you have a broken lid switch. To repair it you flip up the controls. Unplug the lidswitch. Pop the S-clips and remove the case. You can now replace that lid switch. If it turns out to be ok you might want to look inside the pump for objects that can lock it up. If it is locked up the tub will not spin. Why? Because the pump is mounted directly to the motor. If it pumps but don't spin then look for a broken drive coupling. None of this stuff is difficult to repair. I have videos of all these fixes and a service manual HERE.

I fixed mine by replacing the door lock they are about 50.oo
The door lock has two locks, one is instant when you push start the other is a time lock, so you cant open the door for a little if you stopped it during the spin cycle. The problem is what they call the WAX switch or heater. When power is applied to this WAX lock it takes 30 to 60 sec. to lock and to unlock when power is removed.
The machine will not spin, if this lock is not working correctly.
You cant bypass it by jumping the power from one side of the shitch to the other. The board moniters the power draw and when the switch closes the lock contacts. You can how ever open up the lock very easy and bend the contacts closer to get you by for the weekend. unplug washer, remove the two screws on the back of the top panel behind the washer, remove top, open front door and remove the two screws that hold the lock, reach in an pull up the lock, remove wires, now open up lock and bend the piont contacts in side or install new switch.

Tub sometimes will not spin to wring out clothes.

Sounds like the machine is not pausing between cycles to allow the transmission to lock into spin.

Not spinning out, all icons flash, so therefore door remains lock

This is a major control fault within the chip set on the main control board. replacing this damaged control will fix this issue you are having at this time.

Wash.machine won't spin

Door lock switch # 131763245 if everything else is working fine this should fix the problem. It shorts out between the motor control board and the door lock from emptying the cycle and spinning. Try running your machine on drain/spin and see if it drains and tosses clothes and then stops with no spin. If that happens then it is your door lock.switch. Easy to replace by yourself and costs $65.00
