Door or Lid Latch Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design. Motor Coupling If the washer won't spin or agitate the motor coupling might have failed. The motor coupling connects the motor to the washer transmission. It is designed to fail if the washer is overloaded in order to protect both the motor and
Drive Belt If the washer won't spin or agitate, check the drive belt. If the belt is broken or if it isn't tight on the pulleys the washer won't spin or agitate properly.
Transmission or clutch assembly not engaging due to going out or slipping.
there is a couple of reasons for slow spinng that spring to mind the 1st is a worn out drive belt maybe a replacement will solve your problem the other would be a motor issue, i would surgest taking the easy option & check the belt is on tight, if you turn it by hand does it slip this would give you a good sign before you spend any money,
Always remember if you are going to try this check to switch off all power & remove the plug from the wall before opening the machine.
you have the presostat burned and the electronics, that way the pump is not geting comand to evacuate. you must call a repairman to solve the problem, you can electrocute if you suply whit power the machine.
unless your washer is over 20 years old, then it wont have a belt. the temperature of the water wont have anything to do with it spinning or not. need to know if it agitates or drains and just wont spin. if it agitates but no spin or drain, then you have a bad lid switch. if it wont agitate or spin, but will drain, then you have a broken drive coupling.
the smaller belt is causing the tub to spin too quickly. the shorter belt is causing the motor to overheat and causing the thermal overload protector to shut dowqn the motor. when the motor cools it starts up again. replace the belt with te correct size and that will solve your problems
do you actually see the motor spinning? or think you hear it, check the belt hasn't come off, or gone slack, it needs to be fairly tight but not too tight, if the belt and pulley go round but the drum doesn't then you have serious damage and need a new inner drum
