Check the lid switch, the machine will not spin or drain without the lid switch being activated. You should be able to see if the switch actuator is broken or missing, look in the slot where the lid's plunger drops into, if you can see the gray plastic actuator, set the machine in the spin cycle and try to depress the switch with a flat screwdriver, if it runs, the switch is cracked and needs replaced, if the actuator looks fine, and you can hear a distinct "click" when you press down on it, it may be a problem in the timer, but check the lid switch first, that's most likely the problem.

Hi, If the inner tub has dropped down, you will need to change the block that holds the tub to the shaft. Remove the agitator cap and then use a 7/16" socket to remove the bolt holding the agitator in.
Lift the agitator out and look at the block holding the inner tub. There should be two slots with two tabs sticking up inside them. You will probably see metal shaving as well.
If this is what you see, please let me know and I can direct you on further repair.

If you can move the tub by hand laterally - the rear main bearing has likely failed - or the drum rollers are worn.

Tips for a great answer:
Lift the top cover of the unit from the front of the unit once it is free from the front locking clips, which hold the cover in place. Two things you need to inspect for damage. 1) You should see four rubber straps, which should restrict the movement during the wash and spin cycle (cost is around $4.00 each). 2) Check the shocks on the tub support rods and plastic hardware for damage.
