If it doesn’t spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:
If the motor is running:
The washer probably has a Frozen Pump Pulley or a Broken Pump Belt.
To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn’t turn freely if it’s frozen or stiff replace it.
If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.
If the motor isn’t running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can’t spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it is defective, you need to replace it.
It spins only with the lid closed:
For safety, washing machines are made so that they spin only with the lid closed. The lid switch prevents the spinning action when the lid is up.
Therefore when the lid is closed , check whether the Washing Machine is spinning or not.
You can also workout following steps:
Check the fuse and reset the circuit breaker.
Straighten a kinked drain hose.
Check if the door is opened.
For your safety, your washer will not tumble or spin, unless the door is fully closed and locked.
