SOURCE: Shocks broke, now drums spins freely

What you need to check thoroughly are the belt & the 2 shocks (dampers). The dampers should be replaced & fitted tightly, broader ends fitted below.

SOURCE: hotpoint wf250 drum wont spin

Well if you see the drum move in the wash cycle than the belt is still attached.Your door latch is the first thing to check.And the control board is the next and most likely problem.

Motor smell hot drum will not spin or pump out water Maytag atlantis

Im not an expert, but.Ok, but it wash? The only problem is at spin? if not wash at all:
Disconnect from the outlet, remove the belt, and by hand turn the pump and drum. Its suppose to move with low resistance in both directions, will not spin freely, but turn easy by hand. Do the same with motor. IF the drum and pump moves in both directions, I suspect about the motor.
If the only problem is at spin:
Do the same, but place special attention at the drum when you turn in reverse. Look if you see the brake Disk turn.

WMA54 Hotpoint Aquarius drum does not turn during wash or spin

If the machine pumps water inside but does not start :

Start checking the lid switch, if this is stuck the machine wont start.

If the drum does not move at all, the motor, the motor control unit, the motor coupler, the control board may be faulty.

For more details , see: It doesn't spin

Tricity bendix aw1400w will not spin

We had a similar problem, where it washed okay but didn't spin and just 'beeped' with end light flashing. When the drum was empty it was not moving round very freely.
Try unplugging the machine from the electricity. Then take top off machine off so you can see the casing outside the drum. There's a small rubber tube on top. If you disconnect that you can look through into the drum. Try turning the drum round slowly while looking through the hole. We found a sock wedged in which we managed to pull out through the hole (not easy and don't expect the sock to come out in one piece).
It worked - and we've had to repeat the procedure a couple of times now. Think I must be putting too much in the machine in 1 go, although there's always space at the top.
