Your washer most likely has a broken drive coupling. If broken the washer will fill with water and drain, but the motor spins without driving the transmission (no agitate or spin). The part is common to all whirlpool washers made in the last 20 years and is readily available at all major appliance part stores. It is possible to change this part yourself but much less hassle to get it changed by a pro

USE WPL 285753 (Direct Drive Motor Coupling)Part Number: PS1485646

This coupling kit is used between the motor and the transmission on direct drive washers with no belt. This is the newer version and is made with new metal sleeves for added strength.

The belt is broken and needs to be checked for any other part that has failed causing the belt to burn.

SOURCE: whirlpool thin twin filled with water then stopped!

Not sure about the dryer but there are a couple things that could cause the no draining issue.
You could have a leak or block in your pressure hose. Basically there is a thin, clear tube inside the cabin that attaches to the tub on the lower right side. If this has a leak or is clogged then the washer has problems filling and draining.
The other possible problem is a broken lid switch. This is an easy fix. Basically, the mechanical mechanism that goes down when you close the lid does not work properly so when it comes time to drain, the washer actually thinks the lid is open.
For both of these you would need to open cabin. I posted instructions for that here:

Whirlpool ite6234d thin twin could someone tell me in detail where the belt is located in the washer?


I can not find your model number that you posted.
I can tell you that all whirpool thin twins up to last year were direct drive with no belt except for the dryer section. Whirlpool stackers from the early eighties did have a washer belt if yours is this old replace the entire machine.

Series 70 fills wit water stops then makes a slight buzzing sound


The electric motor my have failed or a part called a capacitor could be the problem? The capacitor is part of the starting circuit of the electric motor, if this fails the motor will not start therefore the washing machine won't spin or agitate.
