There are two possible causes of the machine not going into the spin.
The first is an obstruction in the drain pump. This can be a partial block caused by a loose coin or bobby pin. The only way to clear the obstruction is to remove the lower panel at the front by removing the 2 screws at the lower edge. This will allow the front panel to drop down. You will need to unplug the machine for the naex part.
Now this will get a little messy... Be sure to have a lot of towels nearby to sop up the water. On the lower right hand side there is a pump with a black bellows attached which is also attached to the bottom of the tub. This black hose is clamped to the front of the pump if you unclamp the hose the remaining water in the system will spill out and you will have to reach inside the bellows and remove whatever obstruction is inside. some models will have a trap inside which may have to be removed from the top of the hose assembly by unscrewing the clamp on the bottom of the tub.
The hose will have to be reattached in teh reverse manner. It can be quite tricky to do so... Once the machine is back together you can test it by running a straight spin cycle, it should go into the full spin with no water in the system.
The other cause could be a faulty timer which may need to be replaced.
