    Thanks for the quick response, but I suspect it is something else. I already wired the lid switch to a closed circuit and the washer has worked fine for many months like this. Further testing showed that the motor is spinning -- I can feel the coupling spinning underneath -- but the tub did not spin. It's like something is not engaged in the brass housing (tranny?) on the other side of the coupling. BTW, I already checked that the coupling and all prongs are in great condition. Once during testing, the tub even spun briefly. But after reassembly, I could not get it to spin again. Any ideas? Thanks again.

    my whirlpool washer will work on all cycles if there is nothing in the machine but when loaded with clothes it will not spin, this lead me to believe there is some thing wrong with the gear box is there a clutch or some thonig in these units, it is only 4 years old.

Lid switch is bad chance are you can by pass this by removing the timer header and crossing the outer wire on the lid switch that it mounted closest to the lid not the power cord this will tell you if you need a switch

    I wasnt thinking take the clutch assembly out and turn over the pads this will require to take the inner tub out you my get lucky and after you pull the trany you sometimes can get to the clutch used some scotch brite and polish the lining for the pads to grab try this alot of the time this will be the problem. the trany is only used for aggite mostly is does contorl the spin but hardly breaks in side any more ?? ask me any time good luck these thing can be a pain if you havent ever worked on one

Will not spin on any rinse cycle

Hi, This washer does not have a belt. While the washer is agitating, if you lift the lid will it stop? Some models will agitate but not spin if the lid is up. It sounds to me like the lid switch might be going bad.
If you will get me a model #, I can look this up for you and give you a better idea.

Washer won't start spin cycle

sounds like a lid assy issue, can you hear a "clicking" just before the lid is closed, try opening nad closing a few times listening for a distinct "click" if not the machine doesnt think the door is closed and for safety reasons wont spin and drain.

The spin tub mounting block is probably stripped on the basket drive. Remove agitator. Now put machine into spin do you see shaft spinning but the tub isnt moving???
