Question about Washing Machines
Drum won't turn even with belt off
First, remove the drain boot from the machine and see if there is an article of clothing between the basket and the tub jamming it up. If that is clear, you will need to replace the drum assembly spider, and shaft. It comes all together in a kit. Here is the kit to order.

I had the same problem, we opened up the bottom front panel and found a loose connection. Electrical connector had shaken loose.

First, you put some bleach or tide washing machine cleaner inside. Then you make sure the washer is on and hold the spin speed button and the options button down at the same time for 10 seconds. You will see "Cln" appear on the display screen. Hit start and you are golden.

Hello Deanna - This particular issue could be caused by a variety of reasons. I would suggest trying the following steps:
1) Verify a circuit breaker isn't tripped
2) Advance the timer control dial slowly 360 degrees-
If the washer starts spinning, then that means the motor and drive belt are fine but that there is something wrong with either the timer control dial or the agitator solenoid. Call in a professional for this.
If the washer doesn't budge, then verify that the drive belt(s) is attached and not broken by removing the back panel. If the belt is broken, replace it. If it is loose, then tighten it by loosening up the bolt holding the motor and moving it on its swingarm (much like a car alternator) until there is a 1/2 to 3/4 inch deflection in the belt.
Some washers use reversing motors. It's possible the motor works on the spin cycle but not on the wash cycle. If so, call a pro.
3) Visually inspect the lid safety switch- Is it loose or cracked? If so, the washer might work intermittently, stopping at different cycles.
4) Check motor and drive belt- Remove the main access panel (usually in the back). Is the motor spinning, but the drive belt isn't? If so, then you have a drive belt problem.

If the unit is washing properly, as far as you can tell, but it won't stop spinning, then I would have a professional look at the control panel and timer to be diagnosed because there seems to be in miscommunication.
