first of all. comming from a Sears Technician.. (don't yell) -- the delivery drivers only know about delivering stuff. they dont know too much,
if the two are the same size they can be stacked.
sometimes have to rig something up
and yes, for that model the top is removed, clips go on the rear and screwed at the front.
in some areas it is sold seperatly as a stacking kit

I would firstly take the back cover off and check the belt has not come off. Then check that the drain pump is not blocked.

The DDO error is telling you that the detergent door is open. This error occurs when the detergent door has not latched properly when the unit is started.
There is a sensor that is dependant on a magnet, that is attached to the door, to trip it and send the proper door closed signal to the control oard. If this magnet comes off, or loose the signal will not be sent to the control board, and the error code will be displayed.
Now for the bad news. The magnet is in such a position that a considerable amount of labor is required to replace it.
Unless you are mechanicly inclined and handy with a box of tools I do not recommend that you attempt this repair. It is very involved and is not a DIY repair. It is best to let a tech handle this repair. An approximate price range for this repair is $175.00 to $275.00, or more depending on where you live.

The reason for your washing machine not to spin would be of a faulty motor coupling.
If the washer will fill and drain, but won't agitate or spin, you may have a broken motor coupling. The noise of the motor engaging, lack of agitation and ability to still drain are the usual symptoms. This is a common fail item with this model washer through normal wear and tear. Newer versions of the coupler are more resilient and resist breaking
The motor coupling is located between the drive motor and the transmission and takes the place of a drive belt. They do wear out and can break. The replacement part number is included in the link I provided and is an improved upgraded coupling that is more resilient. It should last longer. If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
A replacement coupler can be purchased on line at appliancepartspros.com for about $11. Just use the part number in the link and "Search by Part Number" for your search criteria.
