welcome to Fixya,
My name is Huuum,
How old is your machine?
I have found some reasons of what may be the matter!
List of thinks to check
1.Defective Lid Switch
Check lid switch for proper operation. Check the switch for continuity. If it is found to be open, replace the switch assembly.
2.Faulty Direct Drive Coupling
The Direct Drive (motor) Coupling may be broken. Many Whirlpool/Kenmore brands washing machines utilize a small, relatively inexpensive direct drive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other.
It can wear out over time or fail under overloading conditions. This protects your transmission from excessive loading.
3. Faulty Water Level Switch
If the water level switch is not resetting once the water is drain, power will not be available to operate the motor during spin. Check the water level switch for proper operation.
4.Will not drain and displays F/02
The error code F/02 will be displayed if the drain time exceeds 8 minutes. Press pause/cancel twice to remove display. Check the pump filter and wiring connections on the pump. If all looks good, replace the pump.
You may want to use a pro, rather than attempt this project your self.
Let me know how it goes!
Thank you Huuum.

Check lid switch. Most will not run with lid open and the switch may not be pressed down when door is closed
