Capacitor - Washer motor start capacitor. Specs: 189-227MFD, 125VAC, 60HZ.
Look for signs of leakage or separation. Using an insulated screwdriver discharge the cap. You should get a spark. No spark bad cap. If the cap is fine then remove the timer connection block and look for corrosion or it could simply be loose. The likelyhood it being the lidswitch is slim because this model allows for wash with the lid open. So if that liswitch was broken the washer would still wash. if the cap was out the washer motor won't go.
The most common issue would be the coupler for the motor transmission. It is a rubber coupling and when it goes bad it makes a grinding, or whirring noise and the machine won't spin or wash. You need to remove the cabinet and look directly under the tub where the motor and tranny connect. This is a reletivly easy and cheap fix. Just google how to replace motor coupling on a top load washer and you may also include your make and model for more direct instructions.
