Thanks for narrowing down the washer's problem to motor control as it hasn't spun the clothes and had to be hand drained. Could it be the belt and how does one get to that area, remove front? top? Can't find instuctions online. I'm trying to help a relative in Mass that has no computer and she isn't a DIYer...

Re: WJSR2070B2WW Washer will not spin anymore
Sorry this wash is a top loader ..there is a belt but you will hear the motor run if it is broken or come off the pulley ..I would first check the lid switch to see if it is broken or unpluged ... let me know if I can help

It appears your motor/motor controller has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing. I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information. RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell. In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Remove lower rear cover of washer, remove belt, undo 2 screws securing motor, remove motor wiring plug,, lever back motor and remove motor.
Remove carbon brushes at end of motor, and check for wear, if less than 8-10mm long, then replace them.
Clean armature with emery cloth or sandpaper before fitting new brushes, if it still does not work then the motor is probably faulty.
Plz rate my solution.
