Does not rinse and does not spin, also does not drain water


Your lid switch is likely faulty. Verify by listening for a click sound when you lift the lid and lower it. No click, bad switch. Replace switch, available at http://aplusapplianceparts.com/searchquick-submit.sc?keywords=3949247. Good luck!

No high speed spin and now no agitating


If this is a Whirlpool manufactured TOP LOADER, a no spin problem can have several causes. Most commonly, this is caused by either a lid switch malfunction or a broken motor coupling. The following link explains how you can diagnose the problem and repair it yourself:
