Washer will not spin r drain model whirlpool la7680xmwo


Sounds most likely a broken/defective lid switch. The lid switch on a top-load washer is a safety switch that detects whether the top-load washer lid is closed. The lid must be closed when the basket spins; some top-load models require that the washer lid be closed before the washer drive motor runs (thus no draining). If the lid switch isn't properly detecting whether the lid is closed replace the switch.

Whirlpool top load washer won't advance through cycles


A small motor that rotates the timer has gone bad. Common practice is to replace the timer. Usually a mechanical timer of this type is less expensive than a computerized timer.

My washer


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Then see the Whirlpool / Kenmore Service Manual for top load, direct drive washers. It has troubleshooting and testing procedures. AND, in particular, if this is a basic top load machine, specific instructions for how to remove the timer. (There are two types with different procedures.) I'd go through the testing procedures before assuming that the timer is bad though.
