My washer doesn't agitate or spin, it just drains and fills up

That sounds like your lid switch. The lid switch on most models of top load washers will be bypassed on fill and drain. As a safety the lid must be closed for agitate and spin.

The lids switch is a pretty easy part to replace and is inexpensive.

Lid switch? Does motor run? If so check belt.
