SOURCE: Maytag washer will not spin
If your washer does everything but does not spin, it is your outlet filter which is blocked. Locate this and clean out, it has to work fine. Refer user's manual.

sounds like this is a clutch and brake assembly problem. The clutch
provide the necessary pressure for the lining to turn with the hub and
the clutch tab to push the brake cam driver and release the brake. The
clutch spring of your washer must be weak or the clutch lining is worn
causing it to slide and not release the brake. This prevents the tab
the clutch spring to force the brake cam driver, release the brake, and
allow the basket to spin particularly when the machine is under load. This is manifested in the spinning of the drum when the machine is empty. The clutch and brake assemblies are located just below the tub and the excessive heat resulted from the friction between the clutch lining and the clutch hub.
Remove the thrust washer from the agitator shaft then remove the clutch and brake assembly from the top of the gearcase by removing the retaining clip using a screwdriver. Unsnap the clip and the clutch retaining ring the slide the clutch off the agitator shaft. Make sure to retain the washer located under the clutch.
Install the new clutch assembly on top of the gearcase then insert the clutch band and hold it in place. Using a pair of needle-nose pliers, place the end caps on the clutch spring and compress to insert into the open end of the band. Release the tension on the spring and the band will stay in place the reinsert the retaining clip on top of the clutch.
