Check the lid switch. The lid switch will be located on the machine top where the lid closes. It may be a plunger on the lid that activates the switch or a white plastic flat piece where the lids sets. Either scenario can be checked by jumping out the lid switch. Disconnect the power. Lift the lid. Use alligator clips to connect the two terminals. Plug in the machine. Select spin. If, the machine operates you have a bad lid switch.

Sounds like your lid switch is broken. This is located under the top of the washer and is activated by a tab that hangs off the side of the lid.
Accessing this part requires you to flip up the control panel by removing two phillips head screws in either the front bottom corners (may be behind the endcap covers), or rear bottom corners, pull panel forward and lift to disengage the tabs at the bottom. Flip the panel upwards and it will swing back out of the way.
Next you will see one wire connector going into the top of the machine, this is actually your lid switch connector, disconnect it. Now using a flat screwdriver pry the front of the two brass clips towards the rear of the washer (put tip of screwdriver into front most part of clip and press handle of screwdriver towards rear of machine). The clips should pop off the top pretty easily.
Now you can open the lid and place a hand on the front of the opening and pull the cabinet forward. The entire front and side wrapper will come off the base platform and you can set it on the floor to gain access to the lid switch that is screwed to the underside.
Good luck to you on this!

Hi,
It sounds like you have a bad timer. If you change the position of the timer and it does not change what is going on the the timer has to be bad. However I am not certain what you mean by the agitator turns all the time. Is it agitating while spinning and draining?
