Washer won't drain nor spin

I have a top load Maytag washer - approx 10 years old - that will not spin nor drain the water. It will add water, wash and even rinse, but the water will not drain and it just won't do any spinning at all!

Would it be cheaper for me to try to fix it myself by using online tips or just scrapping the washer and buying a used one?

Cheaper now, or in the long run?
Many new washers are High efficiency ones. They use less water, less detergent, and less power (washing AND drying). Your situation sounds like a problem with the evacuation pump and/or timer.
Do some research... may even pay to ask a cheap premium question here to get your solution, and see if it is cost effective.

Whirlpool top loader washer will not spin


Could be one of several different things depending on the age and model. If its less than 10 years old and is a top load washer its probably a motor coupling (connects the motor to the transmission kinda like a belt) or lid switch. If the water is draining out but the washer is not spinning its probably the motor coupling. If it still has water in it and won't spin, its probably the lid switch. If your washer is a front loader there could be several things going on. Hope that helps.

It does not spin out the water and the items in the washer are drenched with water. It does not spin fast at all. Only two years old.
