Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
If I understand the problem correctly please try this.
It is necessary to ensure absolutely that the machine has all 4 feet very firmly on the floor, and I mean firmly ;-0)
Doesn't matter whether it is empty or not but switch it off then-
very firmly push one front corner diagonally into the centre of the machine and see if the machine moves or rocks AT ALL, even the slightest. If it does you will need the open-ended spanner which came with the (new) machine........which of course went missing a long time ago?!! An adjustable spanner will suffice.
Adjust the foot under that corner downwards until it is very firmly- almost pushing- against the floor but not so far that the corner lifts up!
If this corner did not rock do the same to the other.
Once you cannot rock the machine the slightest little bit, screw the locking nuts up tight to the underside of the machine so that they will not move. Ideally the rear feet should also be locked.

(If this has not cured the problem it is possible that the internal suspension is malfunctioning.)

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
John C

Kenmore washing machine modc1105230080 does not workonspincycle

Sounds like a lid switch. So the machine cycles properly all the way up till the spin cycle? If so, then its probably not your timer. One way to check quickly would be, when the washer stops at spin wiggle the knob back and forth. If it tries to come on during this wiggling it could be your timer.

Baumatic Homeking HWM 1005W washing machine does not always want to spin.

The most common problem that I have come across is that the pump outlet is blocked or the pump is jammed.

You should have instructions on pump clearing but if not, there should be a hatch in the front of the machine at floor level. Open this and there should be a small hose with a tap that allows you to empty the water. When all the water has gone (be patient - it is a small pipe) unscrew the stopper and shine a torch down the pipe.
If there is any obstruction, remove it with something long enough to reach the pump blade and check that the pump rotates.

Re-assmble plug and replace cover.
