Hi, for 2 weeks our washer would run normally and then stop, it didn't matter what cycle it was it would just stop. If you pull on the control knob a bit it would continue washing. And today it washed normally and hit the first spin cycle and just stopped.. I can't get it to spin and/or drain. Any help would be appreciated. Thank You Rick

The spin cycle should be on a timer,and shouldn't be able to change how long it spins.The same timer that controls all the cycles of your washer.Your pump may be trying to go out,and isn't removing the water fast enough.This will keep water in the tub,and the normal spin cycle isn't long enough to let the pump get the job done.Another problem might be a clog in your drain hose.Another problem could be the drain hose is set to high above the pump,and the pump can't push it up that high (shouldn't be a problem if you are using the hose that came with the washer,and not extending it with another hose or something.)
These are plastic and will need to be replaced with new.
Once you have sourced new hinges then the machine top needs to be opened,
Electrically Isolate the machine, then at the joint between the machine front panel and top insert a flat blade 4" from each side to release the lid catches, tilt back the top to access the screws on the hinges and replace with new.
Had a repair man here for the same issue. Learned two things:
1. Too much detergent causes 'soap lock.' The electronics will get confused when there's too many suds left after a rinse and shut the spin cycle down. That's why re-running the entire cycle without more detergent solves the problem. Use less detergent.
2. There is a way to manually get the spin cycle to run using diagnostics codes. Here's what my guy did:
a. Washer selection knob in OFF position.
b. Hold the 'Spin Selection' and 'Delay Start' buttons down at the same time.
c. While holding those two buttons, turn the Washing selector knob to Permanent Press-Cold.
d. Keep the buttons held down until the LCD control panel reads 'P:01'
d. Release buttons.
e. Use the 'Spin Selection' button to cycle thru the codes. Stop when it reads 'P:04' which is the spin cycle.
f. Press 'Start/Pause' button to begin the spin cycle.
I don't know what the other codes do but this should save you from having to run the entire wash cycle.
