Unhappy Washing Machine No spin?

I have a washing machine which doesn't spin. I don't have an instruction manual and don't know what I can check before having to get in a professional. Any one got some advice to get me started?

Check the door lid switch. Maybe it's not closing good. Try to stick a
screwdriver in the switch.

Yesterday, for the first time, mine didn't spin. I came downstairs to
find it making a whirring noise (the belt going over the pulley?). I
start it with my hands and it finished the load fine.

I suppose I'm going to need a new belt soon. Mine is 27 years old.

Oh yeah, that too. I found a clothes washer once with a bad switch
like that. It also had clogged input water screens, and the top
needed painting. Not a big deal and ran fine afterwards.

I fixed things and had it for 5 years, until the main bearing on the
agitator rusted shut, probably because I didn't use it often enough.
Whirlpool gave me detailed insturctions when they had a "cool line",
but at one point, it just wouldn't come apart. The bearing had rusted
to both the inner shaft and the outer tube. A few months later I
found another clothes washer on the street and I had that for several
years until I bought a house with a clothes washer.
