Not spinning after normal rinse cycle

My Kenmore washer goes through the wash cycle, then fills for the rinse cycle. After that, it just sits there. I can move the dial to rinse/spin, and it works, but doesn't spin all the water out of the clothes. If I turn it to drain/spin, it does spin, but not like it used to; clothes are really damp.

Chosen Solution

Cause 1

Motor Coupling

The motor coupling connects the motor to the washer transmission. If the washer is overloaded, the motor coupling will fail in order to protect both the motor and transmission. The motor coupling can also fail due to normal wear. Inspect the motor coupling to determine if it is broken. If the motor coupling is broken, replace it.

Cause 2

Drive Belt

Inspect the drive belt to determine if it is broken or if it is loose on the pulleys. If the drive belt is broken or loose, replace it.

Cause 3

Lid Switch Assembly

The lid switch assembly prevents the washer from spinning when the lid is open. If the lid switch assembly fails, the washer will not spin. To determine if the lid switch assembly is defective, use a multimeter to test the lid switch for continuity. If the lid switch does not have continuity, replace it.
