We just bought a brand new washer and had the same thing just happen to us. Found out after taking the lid off that the top had pinched down on the mechanism that turns and allows the water to flow in. We were stacking out laundry baskets on top of the washer which did this. After taking the top lid off and touch it it began to move and is working properly now.
Have you tried this?
Hope it helps someone out there in the future if not you now.

coins may have breached the outer tub. expensive way to learn to remove loose objects fro clothes before washing them

The drum/agitator bearings are bad I believe, or the gearbox has been damaged. This is an expensive repair. I would strongly consider buying a new washer. This is a great time to buy appliances since the stores are really competing, and the prices are at their lowest.

Update: The dry cycle is now working! Apparently the automatic overload/shut off on the heating element got tripped. We had a technician out this morning. He unplugged the machine, removed the top of the unit, and simply pushed a little red/orange button that was on top of the heating element. When we plugged it back in the heating element worked again. The technician was able to troubleshoot this by checking the amps while running the dry cycle. But the proof was really when we did a load and the machine heated up (just like it used to) during the dry cycle. This was actually a relatively simply fix - though could be dangerous as you have to open up the electrical area. The reset button is rather inconspicuous and located on top of the heating element, which is long (runs front to back in the center part of the top of the machine - which you can get to by removing the lid/top outer housing) and silver - wrapped in insulation. It's pretty obvious. The button is in a little metal fixture on top of the heating element. The technician told us that the rest can get tripped when the unit overheats. (We think this happened when the laundry tub overfilled and the hose was totally submerged - the machine was working overtime to pump out the water.) The technician also warned that this can happen if the machine gets turned off suddenly mid-cycle - especially during the drying cycle. He said that the heating element gets so hot, it needs to have a gentle cool down period, which is marked on the dryer dial for the last 20 minutes of the cycle. I hope this helps others!

If you have got rid of all the water, and it still will not spin, then the odds are it is the brushes in the motor that need replacing.
Quite a common problem

Testimonial: "I will tell repairman from Sears ( coming Friday ). i'll ask him to check brushes before he pulls motor. "
Tips for a great answer:
Hello greschina - You would need to clean out the coin or filter trap to see if debris has clogged the drain lines.
1. Unplug the washer
2. Pull the washer out to tilt it back so you can reach the screws below the front panel and remove it. (You will need something to catch the water once the hose is removed from the bottom of washer).
3. Loosen the bolt with the sliver clamp on the bottom of the washer. The water will begin to come out while your loosening the clamp. (Do not remove any GREEN clamps).
4. Once the water is out, you can stick your hand inside the hose to clean it out.
