Question about Tricity Bendix WDR1040W Front Load Washer / Dryer
Welcome to Fixya.
I`m not entirely sure if the component I`m thinking of usually has any effect on the spin, but it could be I just don`t remember. Anyway the thing I would direct you to look for is a thermal fuse.
All these unit`s ( Bendix, Kariba, Splendid, Equator etc. ) have at least one on the heater/condensor housing ( have to remove the top ) while some of the older unit`s have two.
**Safety first...turn off your breaker at the service panel preferably or unplug the unit first**
Remove the top and identify on the condensor housing the thermal fuse **see image below** and with a multimeter ohm it out.
This is not the actual bendix thermal fuse, just an image of what it will look like. I don`t even know where to get parts anymore, I used to get them from a gentleman in Calgary, Alberta, Canada by the name of **** Blanchard, but I no longer have contact info for him and I rarely work on these any longer.
If this fuse is open the heater will not function but it may also be tied into the spin cycle, but I don`t think so to my memory, unless it has the second fuse located on the harness going to the motor.
You`ll need to remove the back panel as well to trace the harness to locate the second fuse...if present at all, but the fuse used to be located near the motor at the connections.
Let me know how you make out, I`ll watch for your reply in this post.

I found the motors commutator arcing due to previous leak from inlet solenoid/detergent tray area, causing the control board to shut down the motor after a short run, I had a spare machine so swapped out the motor and now it runs fine...now to locate that leak!
