It's most likely a lid switch issue. Depending on your model there are a couple different varieties, but the most common one was a switch activated by a plunger on the side of the lid. See if you can see the plunger and look for the corresponding hole that it would go into on the top, and there is your lid switch. the purpose of the switch is to stop the tub from spinning when you open the lid during spin cycle. Broken switch equates to no spin or drain however even with the lid closed.
Here are some basic instructions:
Accessing this part requires you to flip up the control panel by removing two phillips head screws in either the front bottom corners (may be behind the end-cap covers), or rear bottom corners, pull panel forward and lift to disengage the tabs at the bottom. Flip the panel upwards and it will swing back out of the way.
Next you will see one wire connector going into the top of the machine, this is actually your lid switch connector, disconnect it. Now using a flat screwdriver pry the front of the two brass clips towards the rear of the washer (put tip of screwdriver into front most part of clip and press handle of screwdriver towards rear of machine). The clips should pop off the top pretty easily.
Now you can open the lid and place a hand on the front of the opening and pull the cabinet forward. The entire front and side wrapper will come off the base platform and you can set it on the floor to gain access to the lid switch that is screwed to the underside.
Good luck to you on this!
