Look in the back of it Robert and watch it cycle, I think it's like the one we used to have and there is a clutch at the top to spin the drum. I seem to recall a wedge shaped bar going through a rod that pushed up on the clutch. Could be a roll pin sheared that holds the roller the wedge works on, a worn out clutch or a loose or worn out belt.
Later Bob

I have had that same washing machine for 15 years up until a few years ago. I have fixed it many times. When mine wouldnt spin it was a set of contacts in the timer that was burnt a little bit as the spin cycle pulls the most amperage and the contacts just cant make a connection anymore.All though there can be other problems.
