The belt has probably slipped off.. take the top of your washer and check that the belt is still on the wheel.. Switch off at the mains first .... :0)

Washer won't empty and spin


You either have a blocked water pump or more likely a blocked diverter valve. Easy to fix if you are handy. Tip machine back on a 45 degree angle and let rest against the wall. It is a matter of disconnecting a coupe of clamps and twisting the pump counter clockwise.

Kenmore washer model #417.42042100 is not spinning the clothes all the way.


First you need to open the cabinet and remove the boot from the tub to the pump and clear the filter. Try that then run a cycle and post back the results.

Roper washer


That could be your lid switch. You should hear an audible click when you shut the lid. If the washer act like it is trying but won't spin that could be the drive coupler. I have a page which includes a service manual HERE

Kenmore elite washer won't drain


What is the model number of your washer? This condition is caused by a bad lid switch.

We put a heavy blanket in the washer and the load stopped suddenly with a washer full of water. It wouldn't spin or empty and made a weak sound but nothing worked. We had to manually empty the water....


Usually that means the drive belt is loose and slipping. You should be able to tighten or replace the belt.
To test the belt you have to remove the washer back.

Whirlpool ultimate care II will not spin


You said,washer is full of water and will not spin. You hear the lid switch clicking. When you start it on spin cycle and hear a hum, the tub moves a couple of inches and then stops...shortly after it shuts off.


Some reasons this may happen
Washer won’t drain or spin
n
1. Is the drain hose clogged, or the end of the drain hose
more than 72 inches (183 cm) above the floor?
2. Is the lid open? ............Also the lid switch can be faulty!!
The lid must be closed during operation.
3. Is there excessive sudsing?
Always measure detergent. Follow manufacturer’s directions.
4 If you have very soft water, you might need to use less
detergent.

Sounds to me like the lid switch can be faulty!!Then it acts like the lid is open.
Huuum

GE Washer overfilled, now won't spin


Could possibly be that the water level switch in the console has gone bad.  Sometimes the small hose that connects the basket and the switch can come off, causing the overfill.  Sounds like maybe the water switch has gone bad though if I were to guess at it.  If it goes bad, it will send the timer a signal that its full, when its not.  Could also be a bad timer, but that only happens on rare occasions, but it does happen.  Let me know how it goes or if you need break down instructions, etc.  Jim
