If the timer cycles your lid switch is ok.
most likely: motor Switch (on Motor), condenser next to motor, motor itself, or wiring going from the time to the switch,
It is probably cost efficient to replace the unit rather than trowing parts at it .

Yes sir, a bad motor coupler could cause the machine not to spin. You did the right thing in checking out the lid switch and the pump first. It sounds as if the motor coupling is worn and may be slipping. I will attach a link to a video that may assist you. Hope this helps and best wishes.

It appears your motor/motor controller has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question.

SOURCE: We used your solution to
The problem with your washer is you need to replace the brake pads, brake cam, and the clutch assembly on your washer. Over time the cam will not totally release the brake and it will cause the pads to drag (that is what your smelling) and not come up to the operating condition and in turn, since the pads are dragging, it will also cause the clutch assembly to become worn. Replacing the brake and clutch assembly's will take care of your problem and since you replaced the motor coupler, your machine will have had a complete overhaul of the agitate and spin assembly. If you could please post your model number, I will be able to direct you to the parts you need and the repair process.
