If your lid switch was the problem I dont think (and I might be wrong) that it would spin in the first place.
Your pump may have a separate belt and it could be loose or worn out but this is on older models. The pump may not be turning or turning and not pumping. The pulley may be turning on the shaft and its not pumping. Give it a spin and see if you see it turning inside. If not replace it.
The motor and timmer sounds good because of the "spin" you discribed. So we are left with the pump or a filter if it has one.
Look in the lower section find the pump front right hand corner I believe. Trace the hose back up to the tub above nothing in between and you have eliminated the filter. I filter could be any shape but will either attach with 2 hoses or 1 hose and attached to the side or bottom of the outer tub.
I think your pump is probably stopped up, strings and lint especially if you have some older rugs, towels, and rags that are shedding or coming apart. You can try and clean it pretty easily Unplug. Then remove it and look inside it. Catch all the water you can and keep another towel close by. Examine the water. Looking for lint and the like. If its pretty clean looking and not turning freely look for signs of something wrapped up inside it.
Hope this helps. Please rate me accordingly and good luck.

SOURCE: whirlpool washer leak
Regarding those Cabrio washers that are leaking, while I own the WTW6600 model and have never experienced any leaking, I was told by the service repairman who came out yesterday that there was a flash bulletin sent out by Whirlpool that the fix is in the form of a new inner plastic section. I don't know the technical terms but I saw the bulletin on his computer screen. He mentioned that some people had reported that water was on the left side front of the floor and was being caused by when the water flows through the top section where you pour the liquid detergent, on some models, the water would splash over. He was able to show me the redesigned piece that was being put in to replace those that have the problem. If you are experiencing a problem with water leaking from the unit, and it appears to be in the front, left side area, this could be something covered under that service bulletin.

Check and see if there is a cup in the top of the agitator. Some machines have you put it there, turning back and forth during wash doesn't bother it, but the spin to empty the wash water causes the softener to go out through slots in the top of the cup and be held in the agitator. when it stops the softener drains into the tub, ready for the rinse cycle.

FYI, I disconnected the lid switch and it still did same thing. Agitates somewhat but not full fledged with a clicking noise for a few minutes and quits. Thanks
