SOURCE: washer won't stop filling
Remove the pressure switch hose and blow into it. Is it hard to blow through?
In the bottom right rear of the outer tub there is an air dome where the other end of the pressure switch hose is connected. The air dome can become clogged and prevent the pressure switch from working properly.
Also inspect the hose for any cracks splits or pin holes.
To access the air dome remove the cabinet shell as follows:
I will skip console removal as is seems you already know how...
With the console lifted;
1. You will find a lid switch connector (white in color). Unplug the switch from the connector.
2. There will be two brass colored clips. Place a flat blade screwdriver straight down into the opening on top of the washer and into the groove of the clip. Push the screwdriver down and away from you and the clip will release.
3. Open the lid of the washer and place your hand under the front rim of the opening (DO NOT grab the wash tub). Tilt and slide cabinet forward to remove.
In the bottom right rear of the outer tub you will find the air dome.

First check the continuity of the wires in the lid switch and the switch itself. Make a jumper wire to attach to the lid switch connector on the washer cabinet and set it to spin. If still no spin,replace the timer.

If the timer and lid switches are funtional and the machine is filling and shutting off correctly that only leaves the motor. Have the motor tested or replace it. Even though the timer is running it is possible that it is still at fault. If you have access to another timer try switching them to make sure it isn't the timer. This does sound like a faulty motor and I would start with that assumption.

Coupling broken which joins the motor to the gear box. Look and see or listen if the motor is running then if nothing else is working coupling is broke, easy to replace.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.
Look at the section on the cabinet.
Then see the following for how to release the console and pull the cabinet.
