Our washer has decided that it will not spin anymore. The last couple of months if you would re-arrange the clothes and give the tub a spin by hand it would go into its regular cycle now we have nothing. We have had a repair man over and he hasn't been able to fix the problem I need some help before this thing drives me crazy! It's only approx. 5 years old should still be working.

if the motor continues running,and it does not spin,you could have something trapped between the tubs, a failed tub block(although ususally makes plenty of noise),a failed basket drive, or a failed transmission.- if you put the unit in spin and use a pen to depress lid switch while holding the basket,can you lift the basket up and down any??

Sounds like something is binding your spin basket.  What sorts of sounds are you hearing when it is not doing its spin or when you get it go spin??   Or your break might not be releasing, but that would be rather odd....

Assuming your washer is agitating and draining and not spinning and the motor is running during the spin, either the break is not releasing or the transmission is broken, sounds like to me.  Is the motor running when it does not spin?  Are you sure it is agitating?  If it is not agitating nor spinning you could have a broken coupler.

It sounds like the motor is running, my wife says that its agitating and very irritatingbut I don't know for sure. Does it have to fill with water to check? We have our sons washer hooked up for now as he has returned home for awhile. If I can just plug it in and check I will, don't really want to unhook then hook everything upunless a have to.

There are ways to see if it is agitating without water but would entail detailed instructions.  The easiest way is to have it fill with water since the fill level switch has to be satisfied in order to give power back to the timer which gives the power to the motor. Where is this errant washer located at this time??  Near an electrical supply and water source like a garden hose?

I can move it back, its not that bad I'm just the lazy type of repair guy. Once its in place I will let it run through and check to see what it does or doesn't do

If you can plug it in and hold the drain hose up and turn the washer on to a flil cycle on low fill, put water in with a garden hose or something, that is if it is where you can drain the water back out without flooding something important...you can see if it starts agitating when the fill level switch is satified.  Be sure to turn the hose back off before you over flow the washer tub.
