Whirlpool Washer Won't Spin

I bought the washer about 3 years backs.
--wash cycle works
--it drains
--WON'T SPIN.

I have checked the coupler, it is fine.

When I close the lid I can hear the motor, but the tub does not spin.

Please Help..........................

washing won't spin

its probably the belt. it just happened to my fridgidaire. i bought the belt from a household parts store and put it on in 30 minutes. might take longer with yours, mine had a spring attached to one of the rollers so it made it easier. still took 30 minutes though ha ha. don't have a repairman do it if you can do it yourself. you'll kick yourself after he puts it on so easy. good luck

You Can Skip The Lid Switch Because The Water Drained.. And You Watched It Agitate Right... Remove The Agitator And Check The Drive Block.. May Be Stripped...
