If the unit still drains but it won't spin, either your thrust bearing assembly is worn out or the transmission is bad. There is 1 single belt below the washer that turns the pump pulley and the transmission pulley so if the washer still drains but it won't spin, your belt is moving which means that your motor is running and the pulley below the transmission is running. I would replace the thrust bearing kit under the transmission and if for some reason the issue persists you need a new transmission and that wouldn't be worth fixing. Below is a link to the thrust bearing kit for your model.
