Question about Washing Machines
It will not spin if the water doesn't drain.
check the pump is ok and not blocked. check the filter if it has one, they are normally at the bottom on the front.
mind for water coming out when you remove either.

SOURCE: Washer won't spin or drain
I took the easy advice first. One guest said it was the lid switch. So I opened the lid and put a clothespin in the hole and then leaned the lid on it and guess what??? It began to drain and spin perfectly! PHEW... that saved me some time and money till I can get the switch replaced. THANK YOU "guest" from August 11th!!!

I have determined one of the reasons ( I feel this is the primary reason) why many BOSCH washing machines will not drain the water, Bosch uses the same drain pump in many of their 500-800 series washing machines, part number 436440. The drain pump is a electrical controlled magnetic driven pump. Simply a electrical current produces an electrical field which a magnet rotates, spinning the pump blades. I have determined that the internal seal on the pump part is allowing water to leak into the magnet area of the pump. This is causing corrosion, and water build up around the magnet, interfering with the magnetic field. How I came to this conclusion. After removing the end of the pump, and allowing the water to drain out, drying out the pump, the pump will work as advertised. But of course the pump cannot be used in this condition. A new pump is required. To determine this yourself, if the machine is not under warranty (good luck getting service). Unplug machine, remove back panel, unplug the drain pump, remove drain pump (separating the drain pump from the large plastic holder, there are three screws holding it to the housing). You can shake the pump, and if water comes out of it this is most likely the problem. Now hook the pump back up to its electrical feed, and place it on a rubber sheet. Set the machine to drain, if the pump attempts to spin then stops, or hums this is the problem.

i also had the same problem, and it ended up being the coupler. It was not hard to replace, it cost me about 19.00. I didn't follow full recomende instructions. I tipped the washer backwards. Removed the drain pump and the motor itself. Then I removed the old coupling and placed the new one. The washer is working like new...
