My Kenmore washing machine won't spin. It turns on, fills with water and can empty the water, but it won't spin, so it is not cleaning my clothes. On a couple of occasions recently, I noticed that the spinning didn't stop. What could the problem be and how much should I expect to pay for repair? I've already called Sears and they are scheduled to come out tomorrow. I fear that it will be too costly to repair. I purchased the machine in 2003 and have been satisfied with its performance until now.

Do you mean the tub *never* turns or just it doesn't turn *on the "spin" cycle* ??

If the washer just wasn't spinning, it should still wash properly it would won't spin the clothes dry at the end.

I mean it just never spins, not on the wash cycle and not on the spin cycle. The repair man was out to fix it and he replaced the circuit board. The tub spinned for about a minute and then stopped again. It seems that maybe something is shorting out the circuit board.
