While it is possible that the bearing could have gone bad, there are other things that could cause unit to not spin. We would need the model number to be able to give accurate information pertaining to your washer.

My Maytag washer machine will start to go in a spin cycle 2 times and stop and the light starts to flash . The load is level .I even tried with nothing inside the drum the same-thing happens ? The drum moves side to side real easy . Do you think it is the dampening straps are broken ?
Answer Bernie, Your Maytag Centennial washer does not have dampening straps, so there's no need to consider that. If your washer won't spin, even empty, there are several things you'll want to check . First, make sure you don't have a voltage issue, if the power supply drops below 108 VAC when the motor starts, it overheats and shuts down. Remove the tub cover and check for small articles stuck between the inner and outer tub. Remove and check the drain pump 3363394 for something stuck in the impeller, or a seized up impeller.
my ge washing machine dampening strap had broke in the middle of it.
so when I change it what kind of tool is needed to unscrew the clip holding it? and does it break easy? thanks
Answer Aprill, You should replace all four of the dampening straps(per the manufacturer) The screws that attach the strap and retainer to the tub cover and chassis are standard, 1/4 inch hex head screws. If you have a basic 1/4 inch drive socket set or Nut driver set, you'll be fine. Thank You
I can move my tub from side to side when machine off and makes loud noise when maching is on. Do I need tub dampening strap replaced to secure tub or is something else the matter?
