Terri, if it was the lid switch, you wouln't be able to drain. If it were the coupler, it wouldn't agitate. Sounds almost like you have something in between the basket and tub, or a nail or something in one of the basket holes stopping the spin. You will need to remove the cabinet and remove the top tub ring to check these things out. I will attach a couple of photos for you to see if this will help you out. If you have nothing holding the basket up then more than likley it's your basket drive which is a pretty hard back

    Have to pull the end caps off and remove two screws. Flip console up and remove snap springs. Unplug lid switch and cab lifts off.

Washer wont drain. fills with water. goes through wash cycle but wont drain. once it gets to the spin cycle, it spins for a few seconds and then stops and rinse light comes back on.

Stupid washer

Check inside underneath from front. Disconnect the hose to the pump from the drum. You probably have something stopping the pump from running. Like a coin or toothpick. Put your finger in the hole a feel for something there. Remove any foreign objects and put it back together. Try to run a cycle. Hopefully the pump wont need to be replaced.
