Could be the lid switch is malfunctioning. FYI: The lid must be closed for spin on older washer. It must be closed for wash and spin on newer ones. The lid has a striker in it that pushes against the lid switch arm. This switch allows for spin IF the lid is closed. The switch may have failed. Mechanically the striker may be broken or the actuator arm may be broken. The end that the harness plugs into has 3 holes. As you can see above the lid switch has 3 wires. 2 live wires and one green ground. You can jump the washer out using a horseshoe shaped wire or equivilent. Newer models have the ground wire on one end. Not good! Look for that before attempting to jump it out. At any rate their are 3 wires. One of them is always green and always mounted to the frame. The other 2 are live. You can jump them to magically make that puppy spin and pump. Not recommended to leave it that way. For testing purposes only. the machine goes through all of the cycles except - 492ff1e.jpg

Your problem could be caused the interlock but it could also be that the machine is failing to drain in the time alllowed and therefore the machine will not spin, before buying a lock check the sump hose and pump area for blockages.

Everything is working except the spin cycle


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.
