If you have got rid of all the water, and it still will not spin, then the odds are it is the brushes in the motor that need replacing.
Quite a common problem

I had this problem and isolated the problem to the impeller pump on the bottom right of the washer. The axle simply gets clogged up with lint and dirt and no longer spins freely so no rinse, spin or drain. I drained the water manually with the hose and opened the black filter gasket. I then turned the dial to "Drain" to see if the motor would spin. It didn't so it had to be the impeller as opposed to the timing chip. I was going to get a new pump but tried to have a go at it. If you're handy with stuff, you can do this yourself and save some money. The hardest part was taking off the front panel to gain access to the impeller motor. I have a dryer stacked on my washer so turning the washer on its side to gain access from the bottom was not possible for me but it may be for you. You'll need a Torx screwdriver, pliers and a towel to mop up the water from the drain.
First, turn off power at the circuit breaker or unplug the washer from the outlet.
To take off the front panel, open the little access panel on the lower right. Remove the silver Torx screw to the left of the filter drain and slide the plastic cover to the left to remove it. The cover then exposes 2 brass Torx screws on the left and right corners of the bottom of the front panel. Remove the 2 screws and slide out the detergent and fabric softener dispenser by pressing the white indentation in the middle tray while you're pulling the dispenser out. It releases a tab and it slides right out. The dispenser exposes 3 Torx screws but the one in the lower right is the only one you need to care about. It's the one that keeps the front panel attached to the machine. BUT before you take out the screw you have to remove the gray rubber gasket from the washer front panel. Open the washer door, and look at the edge of the rubber where it meets the metal door. You'll find a small spring-tensioned wire keeps the whole rubber gasket fastened securely to the lip of the panel. Gently lift the wire with a screwdriver but make sure not to puncture the rubber gasket. Then detach the rubber gasket from the lip of the front panel and finally remove the Torx screw in the dispenser area up top. The front panel will come off when you push it up slightly. It's attached by a couple of plastic dowels to the washing machine frame so take note when you're reattaching it later. There are wires on the right of the panel connected to the washer door lock. You can either move the front panel to the side and keep the wires or unclip them. Now, the impeller motor will be exposed and you can unscrew it from the washer frame. With pliers, or unless you have fingers of steel, squeeze the hose clips and remove the hoses and unclip the wires. Take out the impeller and unscrew the black drain from the impeller body, you'll see a little black plastic tab on the drain that you have to raise up with a screwdriver as you're turning. Keep the little O-ring attached. Remove the coil and magnet assembly (it's one unit) by gently raising the plastic clips and unscrewing the Phillips screw. You should be left with just the impeller axle, which is sealed. Try to flick it with your finger and see if there's any resistance. If it gets stuck, spray WD40 inside the axle and shake it vigorously over a sink. You'll start seeing gunk come out. Keep spraying and shaking and spinning it until the axle starts to spin freely. Please note that when the coil and magnet assembly is attached to the axle, there will be resistance on the axle because of the magnets so take off the magnets first to make sure it spins freely. Add some 3-in-1 oil into the axle you should be good. Reattach the coil and magnets assembly and don't forget the Phillips screw. Screw the black drain and make sure you don't forget the little O-ring. Reinstall the impeller and reattach the hoses and remount it to the washer frame. To make sure it works, plug the washer into the outlet or turn on the circuit breaker, turn dial to "Drain" and see if the impeller spins when you press "Start." If it does, you should be good.
Reattach the filter drain cover and reattach the front panel, dispenser and rubber gasket on the front panel with the tensioned wire. At some point it may be possible for the axle to be replaced but that's a part that will cost you $66 and you'll know exactly what to do.
