I have Philips DVD/Audio Shelf System MCD702/37. But for some reason the disc no longer rotates and the player keeps showing "loading disc". I can hear the sound of some kind of motor trying to rotate the disc, but nothing happens.

it sounds like the "Tray" loading belt has stretched, You could try cleaning it, this would prove a point but will need replacing. the belt is small (about 20mm diameter) and is located under the disc tray near to the front, removing/replacing it will require the hifi to be dismantled.
Normally a dvd player shows the message NO DISC when,
1. The disc inserted is bad.
2 The lase pickup unit inside the dvd lost its reading intensity, dirty lens or the spindle motor damaged .
In your case the second one happened. the intensity of the laser pickup unit has lost or the spindle motor faulty or there is some dust on its lens. just insert a cleaning cd in it for two or three times. then check again is the DVD is reading or not
if the problem remains then you have to check the motor and the laser pickup unit. the lase pickup unit have two laser emitter and receiver in its inside . one for reading and playing DVDs and the other for CD and MP3. also the spindle motor runs in different speed when u insert dvd and cd.
Open the cover of your dvd player and power it on insert an audio cd and watch is it reading or not also notice the speed of the spindling of the cd. if the audio cd reads and play. then the possible problem is the spindle motor
To conform it remove the audio cd and insert a dvd. watch the rotation of the dvd. if it feel very hard to rotate it then, the spindle motor is damaged. if so replace the spindle motor if it runs more the the speed of than audio cd then the laser pickup unit is faulty. Then u have to replace the laser pickup unit.

Disc not loaded. Load a disc into the player, close the door and press PLAY.
The disc used may be defective. The disc used may be defective, try another disc.
disc is placed improperly in the tray. Make sure the disc is properly
placed and centered in the tray and if the disc has a label on one

DualDisc or Flip Disc which does not meet the Compact Disc Digital
Audio Standard. Some music labels have recently introduced the DualDisc
for pre-recorded audio and video content. The DualDisc bonds DVD
content on one side 'back-to-back' with digital audio content on the
other side. However, the digital audio side does not meet the technical
specifications specified in the Compact Disc Digital Audio Standard.
For this Reason, DualDisc is not permitted to carry the CD logo.
Philips DVD and CD players and disc drives fully comply with the CD
specifications and therefore may not recognize the DualDisc. Attempting
to use DualDisc may lead to playback problems or jamming in the slot
loader or drive. The DVD video content on the DVD side of the
DualDisc should play on Philips DVD players and DVD drives. However,
Philips DVD players and drives do not support DVD Audio, and will not
play any DVD Audio content present on the DVD side of a DualDisc.
Philips will further investigate DualDisc and update this notice
Try using a cleaning disc, run it for about 20 to 30 seconds. If that does not help you do not really have any other options, RCA does not sell parts for the audio equipment anymore. They stopped about a year ago or more. I work at a authorized RCA service center and we can not repair any of the RCA audio equipment because of this.
The problem with your CD player is most likely the laser pick up, when it goes bad it can not read the disc's so it thinks there is no disc in it. The laser pick up is the most common reason for your type of problem.
If it is under the RCA warranty still you can send it to them and get a free replacement, if not under warranty you may as well trash it and buy a new one from a different manufacturer. The RCA audio equipment is not very good quality. That is the reason they no longer offer parts for them, it is cheaper for them to give you a new one than to pay a service center to fix it.
The laser lens in your player might be dirty or failing.
Try the following solutions:
Clean the laser lens with a DVD player lense cleaning disc.
Lense cleaning discs are available at many electronics retail store.
