If the washer does fine thru the agitation cycle (the washing), that means the motor is OK and the coupler is OK.  It would not agitate unless both are OK.  (and don't listen if anyone tells you the lid switch is bad -- machine would not fill & go thru wash cyle). The spin is another matter.  There is a separate tube for spinning the basket.  There is a drive  block at top of the tube (that sometimes fails)  and there is a separate cluch mechanism below, under the tub.  Those places is where you should look.

    I,ve been at the same problem for the very exact Whirlpool model for the past week.  So, in addition to what I said above, it is also possible that the brake has locked & won't let the basket spin and finally it could be the gearcase.  There's a separate gear inside the gearcase that spins the clutch assembly to drive the spin tube that goes up to the basket.  If that gear is gone in the gearcase, the washer will do everything, except spin. (That turned out to be my $150 problem.
    If you are willing to spend the effort to take the top off and remove the cabinet, you can check if the clutch spins (or tries to spin) at the start of either spin cycle, here's a good procedure:




Ok fellas it was the clutch

Maytag Whirlpool Super Capacity Ultimate Care Washer, it goes through all the cycles except the spin cycle. Will not spin.

Most likely the lid switch or the motor coupler. Is it just doing nothing when time to drain and spin leaving it full of water? If so, replace lid switch. If it's pumping water out and you hear motor running, but it's not spinning, then motor coupler is most likely broken. In second scenario, also could be clutch or other transmission problem.
