i'm also having the same problem...the basket won't spin while in "spin cycle". it goes through the other cycles fine, but when it needs to spin, nothing. i don't hear a loud thumping sound or anything, just no spining. i opened the lid while in spin cycle, but it just is stationary. i can hear it trying to do something, but it can't. my model # is LSR8233JQ0 & serial # is CK2949548, type 111. thanks!

** the basket won't spin while in "spin cycle". **

What occurs with the timer during the failure? Does it stop dead at the point where it should spin/drain or does it continue through the rest of the cycle?

Does it pump the water out?

i'm not sure what the timer is, but what happens is the machine keeps working but the basket does not spin, but the water does drain out.

** i'm not sure what the timer is **

It is the dial you set to turn the washer on and select what cycle you want.

** the water does drain out. **

The washer should pause briefly when draining is just about finished, just before the washer is suppose to start spinning. Does it? The transmission will not 'shift' into spin without that pause.

If that pause if missing, it can often be simulate by opening the lid after the water is drained from the tub for a minute and then closing it again.

If the washer spins after than, the timer may be defective. If it doesn't, there may be a problem in the transmission.

Check lid switch. measure between two outside terminals on lid switch harness.

Your meter should read continuity when lid is closed if not the lid switch is your problem.

** Check lid switch. **

On that washer design if the lid switch was defective it wouldn't drain either, which the OP said WAS occurring.
