Be sure to check inside basket very carefully to make sure no loose nails or screws or drill bits etc that were left in a pocket are sticking through a hole in the basket and locking it to tub. This is common. If that is not the problem,one of three things has happened. 1 The thrust bearing that releases the brake has worn out. This is the most common and easiest thing to repair. If you tilt the machine back so you can look under it you will see the pulley that turns the transmission. When the pulley turns one direction it works the agitator, turn it the other direction and you should see it push the brake up that is directly above it. The thrust bearing kit includes the pulley and all bearings and washers to release brake. If you are mechanichal and can follow the directions that come with it, it is a fairly simple repair. 2 The brake lining has come apart and "stacked" itself in the brake housing. Replacing the brake is not hard, but there is about 200lbs of spring force pushing against the brake and housing that must be released slowly. I would recommend you call a technician for this just because I don't want anyone to get hurt trying to follow my directions on this repair. 3 An item of clothing has found its way between the basket and tub and has the basket bound up. This would mean removing agitator and basket. It is not likely this has happened, but I have seen it before.

If you are a good DYI'er you can find the parts here http://www.repairclinic.com/0003.asp you'll need a couple of hours set aside and maybe a few beers for after. If you are not going to fix it yourself the labor costs and parts would come
to just about the price of a new one. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: will agitate but won't spin
You could have a bad door switch, always make sure your appliance is disconnected from it's power source before performing work on it, if the door switch is defective your washer will do everything but spin in the spin cycle, it's usually located at the door latch, when the door is closed it pushes the door switch in, you can check it by removing the switch and doing a continuity test on it with the switch in the closed position, or it could be a broken drive belt, some washers use two belts instead of one, check to see if your washer has more than one belt, there are other things it could be that are more complicated such as a bad transmission, bearings, motor, or clutch. which could involve calling a repair man.

I would agree with that diagnosis. That is a symptom of a worn thrust bearing for sure and it is a quite common occurrence on your style of washer.
I wouldn't rule out debris in the drain pump as another possibility as well though, i.e. small stones, jewelry, etc. You may want to rule out that possibility before throwing money at a pulley & thrust bearing kit ( it is actually a "transmission pulley kit" which comes with a new thrust bearing as well ). part # 12002213 and retails for about $40-$50 see photo's below.
Hope that answer's your question. Let me know if I can assist you further and thank's for visiting "fixya" for your repair inquiry. Please take a second and rate this info I provided for you here.
