Re: Will not spin
Ap, start with the tub and basket, make sure there isn't anything caught in between preventing it from spinning. Im assuming you already checked the belt. Next would be heavy duty stuff like the thrust bearing and brake. The brake may not be releasing. You can check this by turning the pulley counter clockwise slowly and seeing if the transmission spins. If not, the thrust bearing and brake may be bad. There was a number of service flashes out on this model concerning the thrust bearing, transmission and seal kit, vibration in spin and snubber kit. These things may be covered under warranty. In the event it's your transmission, it has a 5 year warranty on it....Catriver..post back.

Check to make sure your drain hose has a loop at least as high as washer top. If the drain hose is not looped higher than tub water will continue to drain and it won't stop filling. If it doesn'y reach the correct fill level it won't agitate.
