What happens during Spin ?

Washer Motor running, humming,

OR any unusual noises ?

  Sounds like it drained the water out which means the motor is running and belt turning. Remove the front panel, tilt the machine back and rotate the main drive pulley CCW by hand. This should release the brake and rotate the transmission and basket. If the transmission and basket are not rotating but you are able to rotate the pulley, have someone check to see if the agitator is going back and forth while you are rotating pulley CCW. If it is, the transmission is bad.

OK ,

it sits there and there is a humming noise.If you give it a start by hand it will get up to speed.It just wont do it by it self.

including with an empty load ?

May be a bad contact in the Timer

May need to do some voltage tests at the Start Windings on the Washer Motor during Spin

When you tip the washer back by about 45 degrees and look under it, can you rotate the big pully in the center by hand both clock wise and counter clock wise 4 or 5 turns?  IF you need to take the belt off the test this.

Thanks for all the replies,

I went to customers home and started a wash, advanced it to drain/spin and it will and does drain but basket just sits there.I take my hands and try to turn the basket  and its a little tough like there is a break on it but once i get it to move it starts to turn

by itself and spins up to speed.Before i did this and when it was in spin i looked underneath and the motor was working, the center pulley was turning, and of course the drain pump was working as well.Iam starting to think transmision.I dont know for sure.again I have replaced the timer and installed a basket drive kit for this unit.I think I have one more chance to get it right before Ill have to refund.

Thanks for any more ideas,

SAMANERA
