This washer after Tumbling, drained the water, tried to spin, only move 1/8 th turning one direction, for one whole hour. Never got to really spinning. Can the hall sensor cause this trouble? Please help!

Ohm out the wiring harness that leads to motor, you might have a cut in wire where the wire ty wrap meets the frame. Under heavy loads that might have pulled too hard and you have a short in the wire harness or internal cut that you can't see under the insulated wires.

Thank you very much Blaise, that was exactly where the problem was. The tub was shaking so much the hall sensor wires were broken. Had to use duct tape to hold the harness and wires in place. Great suggestions! It's all good now.
