If this machine is not belt driven, then more than likely is the motor coupler. To give you an idea of this problem follow this link....

so when does it not spin when there are alot of clothes inside it heres a test to do put your unit on spin stick something into the lid switch this will cause the drum to start spining have no clothes inside the washer when you do this test. Now the next step is put your hand on the inside of the tub with your palm side try to slow or stop the drum from spining if the tub does slow or stops then you would need a new clutch for your unit if it doesnt spin at all your probably looking at having to replace the drive couple here is a video as well to help you if you have to replace the clutch http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tVc6SZ2DD4U it gives you the basic idea there may be some differences like how to get your cabinet off that are different byt there pretty much the same and if it is the drive couple here is that video as well http://www.youtube.com/user/RepairClinic?v=9K1KHEogf3c&feature=pyv&ad=5453897861&kw=washing%20machine%20coupler&gclid=CIjuiea6u6YCFSdtgwodzletIg also if you need to buy a part goto www.marcone.com under contact us there is a 1800 number this is the cheapest appliance parts as well as the largest in the world Thanks again Rick

Hello there and than you for choosing fixya:
This is a fairly common issue with various makes and models of washing machines
the problem is that the cycle timer does go out on these units after some time this time is what alows it to advance from one cycle to a nother so what you are going to have to do is first ensure that the unit is draining out fully and if it is good then you will have to remove the timer and replace it if you have a appliance parts store in your town simply tell them the name and model number of the machine and the part that you need

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
As far as I am aware most washers have a filter, top loaders tend to be at the back, bad design in my opinion!
Following are my complete and hopefully 'coverall' pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
