I wouldnt think so, Have you checked the lid switch? If it stops when it get to the spin cycke, you have either a bad lid switch or your missing the piece on the lid that pushes on the switch.

What would cause my maytag front load washer not to spin? It is a Maytag front load washer and it will not spin. The water drains out no problem just doesn't spin. Also the drum looks lower than it no

No agitation or spin? try these:

Motor Coupling If the washer won't spin or agitate the motor coupling might have failed. The motor coupling connects the motor to the washer transmission. It is designed to fail if the washer is overloaded in order to protect both the motor and
Drive Belt If the washer won't spin or agitate, check the drive belt. If the belt is broken or if it isn't tight on the pulleys the washer won't spin or agitate properly.

Drive Motor If the washer won't spin or agitate the drive motor might be defective. This is not common. Check all of the other related parts to this symptom before replacing the motor. If the motor is visibly burned out or physically damaged, replace it.

Stator Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the stator assembly might be burned out. The stator is essentially one half of a motor, it interacts with the tub by creating a strong electro-magnet. If the stator burns out the washer won't spin or agitate. Check the stator for continuity. This part is often misdiagnosed.

Transmission or clutch assembly not engaging due to going out or slipping.

Door or Lid Latch Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Motor Control Board If the washer won't spin or agitate the motor control board might be defective. The motor control board provides power to the motor as well as direction and force. If the motor control board is defective the washer may not work at all or function properly.

Whirlpool Washer Mdl # LSR8233JQ1 Type 111

Have you tried unplugging it and plugging it back again? Try it without clothes inside, does it spin? Check the lid switch for continuity. Then probably its the motor coupler check if its connected directly to the motor first, you can replace it if you should its worth about $40++. Next check the clutch and transmission, those are the parts where you should go and check. But if its a transmission problem it might cost you around 200 bucks or more so better to buy a new one instead.

My washer is not spinning

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
Normally this problem is due to a worn out drive /basket clutch assembly that has failed this assy is normally should be replaced as a set and not only 1 part because if you only replace the drive but not the clutch then the clutch will soon fail ok so i suggest replacing them as a set
Here is some more info on this below

Quick tips....Slow or no spin....

  1. Lid open.

  2. Lid switch defective. ( Very Common problem )

  3. Lid switch disconnect plug open/burnt.

  4. Clothes between basket and outer tank.

  5. Lint filter caught between the wash basket and outer holding tank.

  6. Wiring harness.

  7. Bad motor capacitor ( How to check )

  8. Weak clutch.

  9. Timer switches. ( possible not allowing the pause required for the transmission to set up to spin )

  10. Motor.

  11. Cam driver on basket drive broken or basket drive weak.

  12. Spin tube.

  13. Notches in drive block worn out and not engaging basket drive shaft.

  14. Broken motor coupling. See Replacing Motor Coupler Page

  15. Read a bit on how the washer works as well.

If your washer will not spin...first thing is to consider if washer is RUNNING and not spinning or NOT RUNNING and not spinning. If the washer is NOT running ( or working intermittently ) check lid switch for continuity. Broken lid switch arm and the lid switch probe should be checked as well. Something NEW to check for when looking at that lid switch. Always a good idea to check for clothing between the tanks as well. Make sure nothing has gone through one of the inner basket holes and is now scrapping or jamming the tub from moving, such items may be a nail, pin, bra under wire.

Read a bit on how the washer works as well.

If washer IS running, remove power and remove cabinet. Use a piece of insulated wire to by-pass the lid switch wires, turn the timer to spin and pull out the knob, push the knob back in and pull it out again. Watch for the clutch drum to turn ( brown section in picture A ). If it is turning but the inner wash tub is not, then more often than not you have a worn clutch lining or a weak spin spring, also the brake may have seized up. If the clutch drum is not turning and washer is not spinning, often the failure is in the transmission gear box. ( see picture B ).

It sounds like what you're describing is a weak clutch. The clutch could be worn & slipping or may have oil residue on the clutch pads. I would recommend replacing the clutch. Here is a link to the part.

Machine will fill and turn slowly but will not

Check motor capacitor first.Try moving the drum and see there is no extra friction. If your washer has got braking mechanism check the brakes also. ( I have no idea about this model regarding break)

Type 111 filled with water and stopped

with the machine off, turn the cycle dial around 3x very harshly, then try it again. If it works normally now, you'll need a new cycle switch soon!

Washer washes and wont spin clothes in either the wash or rinse cycle

If you have little to no agitation (as well as spin), look for a broken motor coupling (connects motor to transmission).
If the motor coupling is ok, open the lid and select a spin cycle, insert a flat screwdriver or pen into the lid switch and try pushing the drum along in a clockwise direction. If it doesn't spin or spins slowly then the brake/clutch assembly is slipping and will need to be replaced.
Good luck!
