Use a multimeter to check if the motor is OK. If there is an open winding or if there is a leak to the body then the motor is faulty.If not check the capacitor and replace. Now test with the program. see if voltage comes in after the wash cycle starts. If not the controller is faulty and needs a replacement.
Since you mentioned only the spin part I assume the controller is OK and the rest of function like water loading etc., is working.
Hope you work on the advice.

When my washer is on the spin cycle it goes out of balence shuts down no matter wht size load or how i arange the load never completes the spin cycle this is a kenmore elite oasis 5 years old. #2 problem...


as for the washer there maybe a broken spring or where the spring attaches that balances the drum. look for this firest. for the dryer is it spinning around at the right speed if it is then the belt is ok. is it hot inside the dryer after running it when you open the door. if ti is check the dryer vent hose and exterior door at end of hose to see it they are plugged up . if the hose is plugged up the heat and moisture can't excape and the clothes will take a long time to dry.

I have an kenmore elite =sm9711174. the spin cycle does not always start. i have to manually spin a couple times then it starts, but now does not spin fast. only slow. do i need a new belt?


this washer does not have a belt. The motor is a direct drive. it should give you a error code at time if it is unable to spin. some codes are F-51, F-dl, and UL. from the sounds of it the main board may need to be replaced part#W10189966.

Kenmore Elite Washer top load Wont spin


Sounds to me like the belt is broken or has slipped off. Try taking the back off (6-8 screws) and you will immediately see if that is the problem.
