  Rotate the input shaft clockwise for spin mode. The large plastic spin gear should rotate. If it doesn't, there's a problem with the neutral drain assembly under that gear. Possibly, the spin pawl stud has sheared off or the spin pawl is broken.

  I would check to see what the problem is first. If the spin pawl stud is sheared off, you will have to try and remove the rest of the stud from the main drive gear with an easy out. The main drive gear is not a standard replacement part and not available through parts dealers.
