Is there a spin only cycle?

Hi. If there isn't a spin only cycle, then it can't. Many washing machines don't have a separate spin only cycle these days, although historically they always did.

This is because it can get badly out of balance when hand washed laundry is put into the drum to spin. Washing machines have difficulty distributing the laundry evenly when it's just placed in the drum in a big wet clump.

Most washing machines have a rinse and spin option, though, which would be the only way to go. This will fill with water and gently move the laundry around and separate items from the "clump". Then when it drains, it can settle them down properly before doing a spin. However, forcing a full set of rinses is totally unnecessary, just one rinse followed by spin is all that would be needed.
