SOURCE: washer wont spin at end of cycle
Hi, it sounds like the coupler or lid switch is bad. Do you hear the motor running during these cycles?
If you do, the coupler has gone bad. Here are the instruction on how to change the coupler. Part# 285852
Normal 0 Removing the cabinet. UNPLUG the washer. There are two screws holding the control panel to the cabinet. Most models the screw are in front but, some models have the screws in back. They are on each end. Now raise the control panel up and let it rest on the hinges. Unplug the lid switch harness and locate the clips on each side (bronze in color) and release them.
Now the cabinet will lift off the frame and you can set it aside.
Normal 0 How to replace a coupler.
Now that the cabinet is out of the way, remove the pump from the motor and set the pump off to the side. Remove the two screws holding the clips on the motor and remove the clips. Unplug the motor harness and on some models you wil need to unplug the capacitor.
Now you will need to replace all three parts to the coupler. I use a ½” socket and a small hammer to force the coupler onto the motor and transmission shafts. Put the rubber part onto the coupler half on the transmission and then line up the post on the motor shaft with the holes on the rubber part and it should go on ok. Put the clips that hold the motor in place and plug in the harnesses.
Put the pump back on and the clips to hold it in place. Set the cabinet back on the frame. Make sure the lip on the front cabinet is under the front rail of the frame. Ease the cabinet on the frame making sure the two rear sides of the cabinet set down on the tabs of the frame.
Put the two clips back on that hold the cabinet and plug the lid switch back in. Fasten the control panel down and you are all set.
I know this is lengthy but I hope it helps. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

I just had the same problem last week Aug 1 2009
on our WFK 2401 purchased in 2001
If you hear no motor spinning when it should then it's something
with the motor. If you hear motor spinning, esp spin cycle, but
the drum doesn't spin, then probably broken belt ($30 part).
Since I work on cars (this is very much like an alternator+belt) and wanted to avoid a $100 service call (just to come to house) and
at least try for a quick fix before buying a new washer, I opened the back, confirmed belt looked ok, so tried
replacing the brushes in the motor, and it worked.
For a good description on how to do this see
I took some pics, and time permitting will post more details
to this dossy site to help fellow owners.
I purchased the brushes at partstap.com for $50 (incl tax+ship)

IF ITS A TOP LOADER YOU MAY HAVE A BROKEN LID SWITCH. LOOK DON THE HOLE IN THE TOP WHERE THE LID PIN GOES CAN YOU SEE THE LID SWITCH ARM? IF ITS NOT FLUSH WITH THE HOLE ITS BROKEN. SOMETIMES YOU CAN STICK SOMETHING THROUGH THE HOLE TO ACTIVATE IT

Could be a gearcase problem or a motor coupler problem or a clutch problem .Best off to call a reputable service company such as Sears.
