Can you be more specific on the problem?

What and how the washer does and what and how it does not?

Default More info on washer won't spin

The washer runs everything normally until the spin cycle. You can hear the motor running but the cylinder doesn't spin. The water just drains out the bottom leaving the clothes extremely wet.

Try to open and close the lid when the washer comes to that point. If it would spin, the problem is a bad timer. Unfortunately this part is no longer available.

Default Same problem

Our washer will run through all the cycles but doesn't always high spin. A couple times we will move the dial to high spin(after the cycle is done) and the motor will run but won't spin. I will shake/move the basket by hand and the high spin usually works. Is it a stuck brake, bad clutch or switch?

Hello,

You may want to start the troubleshooting from checking the drive block. You can find more useful information in one of our previous threads: not spinning

Here are the breakdown diagrams and Parts for Whirlpool LSQ8000LQ3 Washer - AppliancePartsPros.com
