If the tub is not driven by a belt, the transmission may have failed.
You can check for a broken belt by removing the back panel of the machine which often requires only the removal of a few screws after pulling the AC plug.

My washer will spin but very slowly. Motor and shaft spins out of washer.


Your problem sounds like the drum/tub drive clutch is worn. Especially if the motor operates fine and attempts to spin the tub. This model is a direct drive unit, no belts, so if the motor operates during the spin and drain cycles but the tub is barely moving, only two problems can cause this, bad clutch (which is engaged only during the spin cycles) or worn drive coupling on the motor. If the coupling were a problem, though, you would also notice sluggish or erratic agitation during the wash cycle.

Hope this helps

My washing machine will work on the wash cycle but will not spin.


if no sound in spin cycle, lid switch. if motor is running but no spin, motor coupler is likely. or foreign object is physically holding tub ie nail on tub hole etc.

The tub will not spin in the rinse cycle


This sounds like a timer problem if it will spin in other cycles. If you hear a motor running but no spin it is the motor couple.

Washer motor spins but the TUB does not (intermittent)


If the motor is running and the tub is not spinning you must remove the motor and inspect the drive coupling.
One of the 2 plastic pieces could be stripped or cracked.
If the drive coupling is intact, proceed to the clutch on top of the transmission.
Replace the clutch linings.

Sounds like the motor or capacitor (next to the motor), the capacitor helps the motor to start, once running a switch inside the motor disconnects the capacitor from circuit.
