Thank you for using Just Answer.
There are a number of items to check. Listing them here would not really not do justice to the information you will need to troubleshoot and repair.
So, I have uploaded the repair manual for your model.
When you go to the site to download do not use AOL. Use Internet Explorer or another browser because that site does not like AOL. Choose the "Free" option. After you download the file you will need to open it with Adobe or another application. You should already have that on your computer.
Click on this - WASHER
Pages 4-9 and 4-10 show the items that can cause the washer not to spin. We would first check the pump to be sure that nothing is clogging it. There is informtion on how to get to it and check it in the manual.
Let me know if what you find.
If you need clarification or more information please post back to this question.
Thank you for your patience.
Yes, I did notice that. You are probably right about the pump.
However, the two easiest items to check for these are the pump and the lid switch. We generally go there first and eliminate them so that we don't have to come back after tearing everything else apart. It is possible to have the pump not work quick enough in some situations that the timer is signaled to not spin. The machine is set so that if it thinks that water is in the tub it will not attempt to spin.
You can also check the lid switch to see if it clicks and (with an ohm meter) if it will open and close the circuit. The lid switch will not allow a spin if it thinks the lid is open.
You may have to clear your internet temporary files and then restart you computer. I have used that site sucessfully for some time. I had someone download a file earlier today.
Be sure that you are not using AOL. Internet Explorer seems to work best.
You may have to be persistent to get the download. You will find that it will be worth it when get it.
Please do not accept until you are happy with the information we have given you.
Let me know if you would like more information or if can not downloard the PDF file.
If you do NOT hear the motor running then, this is what the repair manual gives exactly -
Under "Will Not Spin"
1. Door switch
2. Water level switch
3 Speed selector switch
4. Timer contacts
5. Pump jammed
6. Motor protector switch
7. Power supply - check motor with test cord.
Let me know if you would like more information.
The machine is ending it's agitation. Then it starts to drain follow often by a short spin to take out more water before the rinse.
After the water is drained from the tub you may (or not) hear the motor trying to spin. If you did hear this we would be looking at a more serious repair.
If all you hear is the draining followed by no motor sound, then the information for troubleshooting the "No Spin" above is what is advised by the repair manual (I'm thinking that you've still had no sucess downloading it).
Because you are be able get the machine to spin afterwards, it does seem like the timer may be the issue. However, we usually see that another cycle will spin correctly when the timer has burned it's contacts in one area (and that is not what you are getting).
