    The pump works but the spin drier does not rotate unless I manually engage the mechanism that pulls a steel cord.
    Is it possibly this littel motor that is faulty or is in in the microprocessor?

Hello. You definitely have a part failure causing this and there are a few possibilities:

Motor coupler
To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning: If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine. If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely. Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component. Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician. Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess. Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve. ALL that said, please consider the age of your machine. IF it is over 5 years old you are probably better off replacing it rather than repairing it. Joe 4 thumbs up please. ty.

I have simpson eziset 7.5kg has trouble spinning throws clothes to one side of tub


check that the machine is level
check that the wash bowl is level as a support mount may be failing and the bowl is not level
when it happens redistribute the clothes to a better balance point and re-spin
if it still happens ,seek the services of a washer technician.

Brigette can you be more specific. Does the motor sound like it is still running? Or do you hear any uncommon noises ? Does it spin without clothes in the washer?
