It will agatiate and water drains out but it wont spin when it gets to the spin cycle i think the lid switch is good cause if you open the lid the washer will stop and wont start again till you close the lid

If the timer advances normally thru the spin and drain steps of the cycle you selected, than the problem that would cause neither spinning or draining, is the wash motor is not reversing. The motors is a two direction motor. It spins clockwise for normal agitation, but counterclockwise to engage the wash drum clutch and operate the drain pump. I would ask you to check for motor sounds at all during the spin and drain cycles. The pump reversing in the spin or drain cycles can be a function of the machine's lid safety switch, or if not the motor switch or timer contacts. The lid switch is first thing to check here, for sure! If the machine seems to stop running when it comes time to drain or spin, the lid switch is your best bet!
Your washer has a lid switch. If the switch is broken the washer will not spin. The pump is mounted on the motor. In the wash cycle the pumps turns counterclockwise. In the spin cycle the pump turns clockwise, forcing the water out of the machine. So if that lidswitch is dead then she won't pump OR spin.
