Question about Washing Machines
It could be one of a couple things that are causing it to not spin. Start the washer on a small load and let it fill once it is done filling look inside and see if the agitator is moving. It may sound like it is running but check to see. If it is not moving and you do not have spin then the problem is the drive coupling. The drive coupling is used on this machine, this coupling can break or wear. I have a link to some instructions below on how to replace the coupling if you want to take a look.
If the agitator is working and the spin does not work try setting the timer to spin let it run for a minute then open the lid for a few seconds and close it again, if it starts to spin then the problem is in the timer.
If this does not work you could have an article of clothing stuck between the basket and tub. To check this you would need to take the cabinet off and look around the tub, you can sometimes feel a drag if you try and spin the basket by hand.
If all these are okay the issue is internal to the clutch or transmission and that would need a service professional.
