The washer when in the spin cycle is whining as if there is a bearing worn or some type of friction or ot could be the motor. So far the operation had not been affected. Can you tell me what you may think that noise is coming from?

Check door switch: If
the lid switch is bad it will not drain or spin. Try this test: With lid open
let it finish wash cycle. Press lid switch down with screwdriver. Washer should begin draining.
Release switch. Motor should stop. Press
switch a second time. Washer should
start spinning as it continues to drain. If motor doesn't come on while lid
switch is pressed, replace the switch.

If the machine keeps spinning if the lid is open then the lid switch has failed. This is the safety device that prevents injury from people reaching in and getting hurt when the machine is in operation.
hello mam for two years you have not used the washer so the bearings may worned out so lubricate the bearings and check the belt should not have any cracks on it,and after lubricating run the machine without loading clothes the observe the noise if seems to be same then change the bearing to change the bearing call the engineer.
Yes sir, a bad motor coupler could cause the machine not to spin. You did the right thing in checking out the lid switch and the pump first. It sounds as if the motor coupling is worn and may be slipping. I will attach a link to a video that may assist you. Hope this helps and best wishes. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLPGs2UMUJc
You most likely have a broken coupler between the motor and gearcase.
You can buy the part for about $10 or have someone come out and replace it for about $150-200.
If you will post the complete model number from the the washer so I can see which style cabinet you have, I will try to walk you through the repair. It isn't very complicated if you are handy with home repairs.
With the age of the machine it probably just needs a coupler, but it could also have a problem in the transmission or basket drive that has caused the failure.
