Machine was overloaded and now the spin cycle will not work

hum check the belt if applicable, the door switch just in case co incidence plays out here, also may have a bad clutch or motor coupler, or worse case problem ur tranny. are u saying it still washes though? overload should not throw out ur spin cycle but can damage ur clutch and tranny? lest u have a digital electronic board on this machine and they are know to go bonkers. some machines actually have a auto fixit for overload or unbalanced issues.

Washer won't spin

Try a different spin cycle on another setting if it still doest work try removeing the clothes and changing it to a normal wash cycle. If no try unplugging it for a minute or 2 and then back in hopefully it resets and if still no movement on the unit at all you may have overloaded it causing the motor to wear prematuraly and burn up. This is very common with overloading.

Machine continues to agitate in the spin cycle

It appears your timer/main controller has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to or and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...

FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.

If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.

Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
