Is your washer getting enoenough power? The first things to check if your washer dosnt wash or spin are your circuit breaker, lid switch, or fuse box. After making sure there is power to the appliance, you can start troubleshooting other problems. Sometimes the motor will overheat and then requires a cool down period before it will restart.
Is the machine in a pause cycle? Is the lid up? Washers will not spin or agitate if the lid is up. There is a lid switch probe that can sometimes become dislodged. This is generally a little plastic piece that is in the hole under the lid on the washer. This probe activates the lid switch when the lid is put down. Manually advance the timer if the pause is too long.
There are some washer models out there that will not run at all until the water is filled to the level that has been selected. Sometimes the mechanical timer knob on certain washers doesn't exactly line up with the graphics on the control panel. You can try advancing the timer slightly and pull the knob out again to see if it will start. pls dont forget to rate the solution

Do you have a check valve in your drain line to the municipal sewer ? It can prevent backups that are quite unpleasant.

Is your laundry room drain properly vented ? (I know mine is not but so far so good.) New homes built by reputable contractors should meet all codes but there are lots of renos done by homeowners who don't know or don't care.

My front loader has a filter that must be manually cleaned from time to time. The main symptom is very slow filling.
