Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
Every washing machine, top or front loader, has a safety feature that disables the spin functions and that is the lid switch/lock for top loaders and door switch/lock assembly for front loaders. This is to prevent injury when the lid/door is opened during a high speed spin. Check lid/door switch harness and connections. Replace lid/door switch assembly if no issue found with the harness and connections.

If the timer is advancing but won't spin out, it is possible that the spin contacts inside the timer are faulty. A technician will normally isolate and confirm this diagnosis witth a special power cord hookup to the motor. From the way you describe your complaint, I feel that a timer would correct your problem.
Hope this advice is helpful!

SOURCE: spin cycle not working
I had a similar problem with my GE front load washer. The drum would go back and forth in the beginning of the cycle to check the weight of the clothes and then nothing. The clock would count down the cycles, water would fill up and then drain out on the rinse cycles but the drum would not spin or agitate. Problem turned out to be the soap. My wife switched liquid soap brands to a more concentrated "HE" type. These units check the turbitity of the water in the beginning of the cycle but too much soap messes the computer up and it gets confused and doesn't know what to do. These machines are supposes to use less soap than conventional units - especially here in the Northwest where the water is soft. Run your unit a couple of times without clothes and soap to clear it out of soap deposits - then use less soap. hopefully that helps. Also do not run small loads. Medium to large loads are better and keep the weights of the loads even (run just all jeans or T-shirts - do not mix together.)

SOURCE: Final Spin Cycle Not Working
I unclogged the pump, it was really easy, and it fixed my problem (I have no mechanical know how)! let me explain how I did it! I have the Frigidaire Front loader for two years, it was acting funny, wouldn't spin, wouldn't drain. My solution was quick and simple, per a solution already mentioned on this site. In short, The rubber drain was clogged. There were two cotton breast pads, that must have been in there for months. Recently my washing machine would not drain, and therefore wouldn't even think about spinning fast. To unclog, first take off the front bottom panel. (There are two tight screws on the front bottom, next to the floor, I had to use a powerdrill to remove them, and tilt the machine against the wall to get to them). Next, there was a black rubber accordian on the front right, where the water drains. (remeber to unplug your washing machine, to avoid any shock or such!) I simply unscrewed the big metal ring, (I think it's called a gasket). After unscrewing the metal ring, I could easily pull the rubber accordian down 2 inches, stick my hand in it, and pull out debris. I pulled out debris for about 5 minutes, and was so excited because I knew my washer would work great again. I simply put the rubber accordian part back on the lip, screwed the ring piece pretty tight. I used a towel to absorb a small amount of water, that got inside the washing machine. Now, it is spinning a million miles per hour again. I will put the rectangular bottom front panel back on in a few days, I just want to double check, there is no leak, which there is no reason to suspect, as removing and putting the metal ring back on was easy!.
