Had the same problem. The water pump is not working and since it cant drain water it wont spin. A easy fix. There's a magnet located on the water pump thats comes lose. Simply tie it back into place.

If your washer doesn't agitate, check these:
Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, the washing machine may not agitate or function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
Motor coupler Many washers produced by Whirlpool® use a small, relatively inexpensive 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. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. If this happens, you need to completely replace it.
Belts Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.)
Clutch If your washer was made by GE®, it may use a clutch for agitating the clothes. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the washer from agitating well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician.
Drive motor Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor.
Drive pulleys The motor or transmission drive pulley may be worn and unable to turn the drive belt. If so, replace the pulley.
Transmission The transmission could have either of these problems:
Agitator The inside of the agitator--where the transmission shaft attaches--can become worn, and strip out the spline that allows the agitator to properly grip the shaft. Then the transmission shaft rotates back and forth as it should, but the agitator doesn't move properly. If this happens, you may need to replace the agitator and/or the transmission spline.
It's noisy Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

SOURCE: My avanti w797, suddenly stoped
There could be a couple of possibilities which are explained below :-
1. Lid switch is not being engaged .Remove rear top cover , Phillips screws - snap clips use flat blade screw driver to pop cover .Look at rear of lid (door) right side plastic arm part of lid snapped off replace lid, then check safety switch manually over ride switch as a test .If machine spins change lid if switch broken as well change both.
2. This could be a problem with pump.There is a clog some where between the connector that hooks up to the sink and the other end of the water hose that connects to the washer. Remove the water hose end that connects to the washer and there should be a screen in the end. Either the washer side or the hose side of that connection. This screen protects the water valve from debris that comes through all water pipes and faucets. So as not to allow it to reach the water valve.
This valve is activated by a Solenoid. So either you will find a clogged hose or it has a defective water valve or solenoid.
Let me know,once you check all the above details.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

SOURCE: Avanti W797 Combo Washer and Dryer............Does not fill with enough water to wash clothes. It will runn the cycles with some water, but clothes do not all even get wet????? How can I correct the p
I have this problem too. Called the repair man out to the house & he just told me it was set at the factory & there was nothing he could do. I discovered if I held the water level knob between the settings given, water would run to the level I wanted as long as I held it in place, but I don't know if this does any damage to the machine. So I don't know if you want to try that or if it can even be done on your model???
