Question about Washing Machines
Try tipping unit over, theres a large pulley under there connected to transmission, grab hold and spin that both ways. one way free spins, the other way pushes up on the center shaft to release brake and start spin.you can replace the thrust bearing yourself( kit includes new pulley ,and cam w/ new spacers) a brake issue would need to be done by pro. you need special brake tools.

Sounds like the spin coil/brake solenoid is burnt out or broken. This is a coil situated on the motor plate under the machine with a lever attatched to it. When the machine goes into spin cycle, this solenoid pulls the brake away from the outer drum to allow the drum and agitator to spin together. The shaft that goes into this coil should move in and out freely. If tight, replace spin coil/brake solenoid.
