Well if it won't spin then you need to make sure your hinges are tight and your lid switch strike is hitting the safety lid switch and that arm on the lidswitch is not broken.(very common on these washers). The washer's pump can easily be replaced if it is leaking. A common problem is sand will get into the pump and wear out the bearing. You can clearly see the pump and tub with the case removed. To keep from being monotonous I have come up with a FAQ page(this is NOT a pdf) to cover these problems:

if the pump was bad would it cause the washer not to spin or agitate.

If the pump was blocked with a pair of pantys or a baby sock maybe yeah. I have seen it.
