Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name isXXXXX will be helping you with your appliance issue today.


is this draining?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
no it is not. but I'm sure it would if it would spin.could this be a weak motor or a faulty capasitor. It seems to agitate just fine but won't spin at all belts are ok
Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
there is a capacitor for this motor and it could be the issue, is the lid locking?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
yes the lid is locking
Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
I would try the capacitor and see if that works if not the motor is bad, the motor reverses direction to spin , the windings on the spin side are bad . you can get the capacitor @ thanks Bryan
