Fast spin not working. drum going round and draining but not spinning. Help!!!!

Possible there is no drive voltage to the motor at this point of cycle, could be due to fault in the controller unit.
Need to check the voltage on the unit to confirm this case as the drain gets connected..

Machine will not agatate when clothes are in the machine

does the machine fill up with water? if you were to put the machine in drain/spin, does it drain/spin? if water comes in and it doesnt drain/spin, then your lid switch is bad. if the machine fills with water, drains but doesnt spin, the your motor coupling is worn.

My washer will not go into a spin cycle...I have replaced the ccu and mcu boards and I still have the problem....what could it be?

if the water isn't draining the pump is clogged,send the model number so i can look it up,remove the bottom panel,with a shop vac vac out the water in the tub,next if you have the pump with the middle piece that screws out,loosen the middle part of the pump and vac up the water as it comes out,do this until the water is drained out,then take out the middle clean out piece and make sure nothing else is in the pump and in the hose,put it back together add some water and see if it spins and drains.let me know what you find and send the model number,if the pump humms and water doesn't drain the pump could be bad or something is still stuck in the pump

Won't spin cycle

when sitting for the last spin it may be out of balance,when you have no cloyhes in it,put 1cup of HE clorox bleach and let it sit in tub over nite,then run on heavy duty wash hot water cycle.(no clothes) this should open up drain pump.this may take several trys.

Won't spin won't agitate

This is a link showing the part I suspect needs replacing in your washer. It's the motor coupler -- when it breaks, nothing turns but the motor itself.
