Last night when I went to put clothes from the washer to the dryer, they felt very wet. I found out that the spin cylce was not working at all. Is that an expensive item to repair, or do I need to purchase a new washer????
A friend had told me that to get whites whiter, pour some vinegar into the rinse water. I did that - and then when the batch was done, I found it had not spun the water out. I doubt that the vinegar caused it - but who knows????

Re: Automati Washer Spin Cycle
Never heard the vinegar in the rince water thing but who knows! do you know if the washer drum is working in the wash cycle? as you know it should tumble in both directions. if you ca check that it would be a big help to know if the motor is working. it could be something as simple as the belt broke. so get back to me with the answer and we can go from there. thanks

Most washing machines do not dry the clothes completely. Make sure that your clothes are evenly spaced & the weight is balanced to get the best spin speed. When the cycle is complete, you will need to put the clothes into a dryer or hang them up to get them completely dry.
If your pump had something in it, it wouldn't have had to clog it, but rather just stopped the internal spinning. My coworker removed a dollar bill from his water pump, and it fixed the problem he was having (same as you've described) and the water pump worked well after it was re-installed. Worst case scenario, you reinstall it and it doesn't drain and you spend 40 or 50 bucks online for the part. I would reinstall and see if it works. I'd bet on it.
I was cleaning mine and doing the same thing last night. Washed a load of clothes tonight and went to dry them and everything works on it except it won't spin or heat. Heard the same type of popping noise last night cleaning it out. Have you found any solutions? Mine is just over a year old. I did some reading and thing that the dryer belt came off its assembly possibly. Have you found a solution?
Yes you will find a belt under the bottom of the machine. Check out first that it did not just over balance and cut out while spinning if so you will need to hit the reset buttonand check out spin cycle. Hope this helps
The spin normally does not work when the outlet filter is clogged; if the filter is clean you should then check your pipe coming out from under the tub (plug off the wall first before doing all these things). Last check your outlet pump, could be blocked with something. Refit carefully, you might need a nice pair of pliers to get the grip clip on and off the pipes. The outlet pipe into the wall stands at a particular height, refit exactly to this height, about 3 feet from ground
