Re: washer won't spin

You may not have received any response because you have used Kenmore 22622 category instead of posting with GE and the GE model #.
Regardless - you might remove the back panel of the machine and with adequate light peer inside and look for a belt. If your machine is belt driven, it may need a replacement if it has stretched beyond the limits imposed by any tensioner.

Kenmore Washer 70 series Model #110.22722100 won't spin

Check door switch: If the lid switch is bad it will not drain or spin. Try this test: With lid open let it finish wash cycle. Press lid switch down with screwdriver. Washer should begin draining. Release switch. Motor should stop. Press switch a second time. Washer should start spinning as it continues to drain. If motor doesn't come on while lid switch is pressed, replace the switch. OR
Click if helped.

Won't spin

If a washer will agitate and wont spin check the lid switch. Lid switches are designed to not allow spin on most washer but will allow agitate. Safety feature.

If you need further assistance please feel free to comment me back.

Machine won't spin out the water in the clothes,has to be wrung by hand..What would you think the part is that's holding this up?

Check the washer lid safety switch . Sounds like it is a simple switch for when you close the lid it allows to spin only when lid is closed. It is a safety switch for spinning to not operated if lid is open durring spinning cycle. It's maybe a 20 dollar part and easy install.

Spin cycle doens't work

Your hand probably won't depress the lid switch far enough to actuate it. Use a pencil, pen or old toothbrush handle to press the switch down and see if spin starts. If it starts, the lid actuator is likely broken or out of alignment.
