Washer continues to spin slow in the last spin cycle.
My top loader is an Amana LW2503W model but is a top loader and should work about the same. My question; is this a belt problem or do I have a machine that has a motor with a hi/lo switch on it. Previously when it was working correctly it was as if the motor speeded after most of the water was spun out and the spin cycle was about twice as fast as it was at initial start up of the spin cycle. It currently spins slow the entire cycle and leaves the clothes with far too much water in them. To get the water out of the clothes I currently have to run the clothes through the final spin cycle twice before they are dry enough to put in the Dryer.

Re: washer continues to spin slow in the last spin cycle.
Red Ryder, the motor is 1 speed on this model. A couple of things to check; one would be the belt. Look for shavings, cracks or if it's shiney, could be worn. If your p number is p1118410ww, looks like you have 2 belts, agitate and spin and pump. Pump-R0606507, spin-R0606539. Check the pulley, make sure it is not binding, lube it up, and check the pump, something might be binding there. As long as you don't have a grinding, howling noise during spin the bearing should be good. Catriver..post back.

sounds like the couplers going, if its a traditional top loader, the coupler is in between the motor and the transmission and are meant to shear off to protect the machine from damage, overloading. they dont last forever. once you get the motor off the part is right there..
I could be the pump slowly ceazing causing the belt to slip which would give a burning smell.
Motors in those units, are well build...have a service guy in but DON"t say anything about the motor.. because they will say it because you mentioned it
I sounds like you pump
This is not a Malber machine but the following fix has worked for the Malber washer. Try unplugging the machine for at least 2 minutes. Do not just turn it off as there is still current going to the machine .This should clear the computer. If this does not work, the imbalance may have overloaded the circuit board requiring replacement.
