Sounds like something is stuck in the drain pump, maybe a sock. Remove the front panel by sticking a small screwdriver or putty knife just above the front panel to release 2 clips. Drain pump is located bottom right with 2 hoses connected to it. Drain the machine and remove the hoses. Check for obstructions.

SOURCE: not spinning
It doesn't pump or spin
If it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:

I suspect that your "lid lock" mechanism has gone to appliance perts heaven. If the timer "thinks" the lid isn't completely closed and locked, it'll shut everything down when it's time to spin and drain. It's a safety feature... I mean, you wouldn't want this thing spinning at full speed and have a 5 year old lift the lid and stick her paw in there only to have it torn out of the socket, would you? Yuck! (was that too graphic?)
Anyway, here's what I'll need you to do. You gotta get access to the lid lock and run a TEMPORARY bypass on it to verify my theory, OK? You'll also need to UNPLUG THE MACHINE BEFORE DOING ANYTHING ELSE!!!! If you don't, you run a high risk of a funky new do and some time in the Hospital.
Click this link, you'll see a main picture and 4 "thumbnails"... I want you to look at the last one. It'll show you a micro-switch in detail. This is what I believe to be at issue and this is what we'll bypass for testing purposes. All you need to do to access it is remove the front panel.
Look at the lower right and left of the front panel, you'll see 2 Phillips screws there, remove them. Now grasp the front panel and pull straight down to unlatch it from its' clips. Then pull the panel toward you and set it aside. Now that you can see inside the cabinet, look to the top right and you'll see the lid lock. Since you've UNPLUGGED THE WASHER, you are not afraid to remove the 2 wires attached to the switch (shown in the link above).
Now that you have the wires off, you'll need to build a "bypass tool". My favorite (and the one I carry in my tool bag) is made from a paper clip. Take a paper clip and straighten it all the way out. Then bend it into a "U" shape. Starting at the bend, wrap it with vinyl electricians tape most of the way up to the exposed 2 prongs (leave about 1/2" exposed). Now take these prongs and insert one into one terminal and the other into the other terminal. Make sure they are firmly and completely seated.
Now plug the machine in and set it to spin. I suspect that it fired right up. If it did, we just verified the failed component... the lid lock assy. You can buy it online by plugging this number (134101800) into a search engine, or pick one up at a local appliance parts retailer.
IF, and only if, this didn't fix your problem, write back to me and I'll take the diagnostic a little deeper for you. Otherwise, please don't forget to rate this as "FixYa", OK? (It took me longer to write this than it would have to fix it, so show some love, K?)

it's most likely your timer....u can get the machine to spin out your clothes by pushing the timer in and pulling it back out. this resets the motor and makes it turn backwards. it's a pain to do this because you have to keep an eye on the time. this will get you through until you change the timer.

It sounds like you may have a broken motor coupling. This is a common problem that usually occurs through normal wear and tear. Replacement couplers are more resilient and resist breaking much better. If the washer will fill, will not agitate or spin, but will still drain, these are the symptoms of a broken motor coupling. The accompanying noise of the motor engaging and a rattling/grinding sound is also a common symptom. This is a very simple and inexpensive repair. The following link explains step-by-step how to replace one:
The part number is included in the link I provided. You can purchase a replacement on line at appliancepartspros.com for about $11.
If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
