Washer-Kenmore front load belt drive model #417.40042990 (Won't final spin on any cycle.)

O.k. guys here we go again...had to take a break and rest my brain.

So, posted the other day about our Kenmore front load washer that doesn't seem to want to gear up for that final spin speed.
1. Pump and drain lines for blockage. Found nothing blocking and the impellers were fine.
2. Checked drain line to ensure that it wasn't to far into the stand pipe.
3.Checked the shocks for oil/grease or broken mounst or bolts.

After all of these great suggestions...we still have yet to conquer the problem. so any other ideas would be great.

This may well be the drum drive belt in the back of the washing machine. This belt transfers drive from the motor to the drum for both wash cycles and spinning. If the belt is slipping slightly on the pulley then a squeal may well be heard on the spin cycle and will change in pitch as the speed of the drum increases. At lower speeds (wash cycles) the belt probably won't slip. I don't personally know of this model but there is usually a tension adjustment nut/bolt near the motor to tighten the belt and stop it slipping.

Spinning cycle is not spinning.

It could be belt or transmission. I would tip back the washer to check. Some times the belts are under the whole washer. depending on your model, it may be inside the housing. It's only a few screws to take off the front panel. They are pretty self explanitory. Let me know if this helps.
