My washer will not spin all other functions work. Transmission seems to engage as the noise I hear in the spin cycle. Model is LA5000XPW1 not 2000 as I have in the topic

Would suppose the coupler between the motor and transmission is broken.  This link will show you how to access this to check it.

Standard Whirlpool direct drive model. Some possible causes: stripped out drive block, worn clutch, transmission not shifting out of neutral (either timer or mechanical problem). First step is to run it in spin with the lid open, you'll find a little hole at about 3 o'clock as you look down on the tub. Put a pencil or small screwdriver in there to foll the machine into thinking the lid's closed. Check it out and report back.

Before I disassembled the machine I tried starting in the spin cycle.  I heard noise louder than normal when it would go into spin, but the tub didn't spin.  My wife said that the clothes near the top were not as wet as the ones at the bottom of the tub

Probably a stripped drive block under the spin basket....
