I HAVE A WHIRLPOOL WASHER MODEL LSR8133HQ0 I HAVE PART THAT CAME OFF IT DOESNT LOOK BROKE; IT HAS A SPRING CONNECTED TO A GRAY FLAP. I FOUND THAT THIS PARTS KEEPS THE WASHER FROM SPINNING OUT. WHEN YOU LET DOWN THE WASHER TOP THIS PART MAKES THE WASHER WORK IT IS FOUND UP UNDER THE THE TOP RIM OF THE WASHER. WHAT DO I DO? CAN I HAVE THIS PART REPLACED OR FIXED?

 

You have had a Close Encounter of the lid switch kind.  The piece you found is part of the lid switch.  On this washer, if the lid switch breaks, like yours did, the washer will not spin.  The solution is to replace the lid switch:
