The washer runs through all cyles well, including rinse and spin until the last spin cycle. The motor is working and and the lid switch works fine. I put a screwdriver to hold the switch and spun the basket and it began to spin normally, sometimes. .It does this on all cycles ,Delicate ,Heavy etc. Any suggestions?

If you're pushing the masket to get it moving, it's definitely oil on the clutch. Call Sears for a Service Smart Agreement. Tell them it pumps out but doesn't spin. They'll replace the transmission, clutch, and motor coupler (a $400.00 job) for about $250.00. Or, maybe it's (sadly) time for a new machine.

The problem is most likely with the lid switch. This washer can fill and agitate with the lid up or down but will only drain and spin with the lid down. If the lid switch breaks the washer does not know that the lid is down so it will not run.
The part number for your model is 8054980 and runs about $20.00, it is shown in the image on this link below as part 11.
if it smells electrical then it is the motor and just because you replaced it months a go that dont meen anything i have seen them come off the shelf and be bad not saying ddty that this is your issue but it sounds like it a bad solinoid chances are very slim I would look towards the motor to find out when machine quits lean machine back on the wall so it dont fall on you and put your hand on the motor if it is hot then it is over heating and needs to be changedplease let me know what you guys find and if i can help you in any way

How old is the washer?Sounds old!
If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad! New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!! Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket! The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!

sounds like a lid switch problem. is there a clicking noise when you open and close the lid?
if not then the lid switch may need to be replaced; inexpensive.
this could also be caused by a bad timer.
also try a different speed for the rinse cycle, it may be a bad motor and it is not going into a certain speed. instead of gentle or slow speed try fast or normal, something like that.
