That sounds like a broken motor couplin, slack drive belt, or worn bearings.
A repair person can determine which is it. I cant tell from here. However,
If you do this test you can eliminate one of the above. Lift the lid of the washer, hold the rim of the inner-tub and spin it clockwise and then anti-clockwise. If it spins both ways, you have a bad bearing which needs replacing.

Sounds like the timmer in the control module has frozen and will not advance. It's one module for the whole display. I sometimes tap the module with a plastic screwdriver witch may releace it but it will do it again. I sorry to say but it's time for a repair man. I do't have the writing space to tell the procedure (if it is the problem) - Sorry, not good news

If the timer and lid switches are funtional and the machine is filling and shutting off correctly that only leaves the motor. Have the motor tested or replace it. Even though the timer is running it is possible that it is still at fault. If you have access to another timer try switching them to make sure it isn't the timer. This does sound like a faulty motor and I would start with that assumption.

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question $#@!
