Why doesnt my washer spin sometimes
No spin, try these:
Using a multi meter check for continuity the door switch, which when bad may not allow agitation or spin. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically.
Check the clutch, brake assembly and transmission, one way to check for slipping is to get under the machine after a spin cycle ( this is if u get a lil spin but not much leaving clothes still wet) mix in a spray bottle a lil water and some dish detergent, then spray it on the clutch assembly ( the metal round pc. Connected to the tranny) if it sizzles and steams up then u know its bad and slipping. Another way to check clutch if u get no spin at all? Is to take it out and use ur hand to try and turn the inner spring assembly pushing it around the inside? If its very easy, it BAD should be hard to push by hand.
Next check the motor coupler which engages the tub and tranny to the motor. ( if its bad u usually get no wash or spin or very little of either)
Next check for a loose, worn or broken belt if belt driven.
On some front load models u may need to check the STATOR assembly.
The stator is essentially one half of a motor, it interacts with the tub by creating a strong electro-magnet. If the stator burns out the washer won't spin or agitate. Check the stator for continuity. This part is often misdiagnosed.

Why won't water drain from my front load washer?
Check the door switch..Most washers won't drain or spin if the switch is not closed. It could be loose. Look for two small screws on the side opposite the door hinges and make sure they are tight. you can also try depressing the switch with a screwdriver with the door open. If it works, the switch is good it's just loose. If it doesn't you probably need a new switch.

How to fix an activator/agitator not working
If the drain motor filter is cleared out and still not working then you are going to need to replace the motor in your front loading washer I had lightening strike near my home once and although it would still adgitate it would not spin properly or even adgitate properly After having service men come out a number of times I ended up replacing almost every part including the motor which finally fixed the problem
