From your description, it sounds like there may be a problem with the inlet water solenoid valve(s). They can stick after several years of use. The se valves are located in the machine, just inside where you connect the water hoses.
Scenario 1: Your motor is dead, or the electrical connections leading to it are chewed up and no longer send electricity to the motor. If you have a voltage tester, you should see if you are getting power to it.
Scenario 2: The safety switch that stops the motor from spinning when the lid is open is compromised.. This is possible, but less likely, as the motor would still spin in agitate mode..
Your drain line is too low.
OR the drain line is restricting air where it enters the drain stand pipe.
Remove the drain line and hold it up high.
Turn the washer on to fill. It should fill then stop.
This example should explain what you must do to correct the drain line problem.
unless your washer is over 20 years old, then it wont have a belt. the temperature of the water wont have anything to do with it spinning or not. need to know if it agitates or drains and just wont spin. if it agitates but no spin or drain, then you have a bad lid switch. if it wont agitate or spin, but will drain, then you have a broken drive coupling.
you having an issue withthe lid switch not activating, either a bad lid switch, or the "arm that hits it simply not making connection and needs adjusting.. chances are you cant hear a "clicking" noise when the lid is lifted and lowered... if this is the case its a lid switch issue... for safety reasons, the machine is not recognising the door closed so wont enter a spin cycle. will hawever wash and fill
What brand is this? If it a whirlpool or kenmore (or roper, estate) It is you lid switch. A very common problem but is cheap and easy to fix. Get me the model number and i can give you the part number for the switch.
the water is draining back to the ocean. The drain hose was not emptied properly from its last use. Put the machine in spin cycle (about 5 minutes) only to spin out the water from the outer tub completely and retry washer. If still problem, then visual check drain hose that it still has a "rising" section higher in altitude than the water level of inner tub (when working properly) before it makes a U-turn downward to send back to the ocean. You can also test the drain hose by putting machine in fill mode and crimping off the hose (fold hose over) to simulate a good drain hose. At this test, you should not "feel" water running through the hose if successfully crimped.
