I don't think it is the lid switch. On this model the lid switch being broke would stop the spinning and pumping but it would wash. Since it does neither I would say yall have a bad motor capacitor.
If the capacitor turned out to be ok I would check the motor and the timer.

Hello, Welcome to FixYa. The scenario you describe is usually associated with a faulty or broke lid switch...but I don't know if you checked that yet or if you know how.
The lid switch failure is definately a common top load washer problem. Here`s how you can repair it pretty easily...

( this is based on the most common Whirlpool, Estate, Kitchen-Aid, Roper, Kenmore, Inglis top-load washer, not necessarily applicable to ALL...but it should cover yours)

Here`s a helpful link for changing it out,

Why won't the water in my whirlpool washer not turn off?


You mean that it wont stop filling? If it is continuing to fill when you start it, the water level sensor might be bad or plugged. IF it fills when it is off, unplug the machine to see if it stops. If it stops then it is the control board sending voltage to the valves. If it does not stop then the valve is stuck open.

My Whirlpool Ultimate Care II Washer doesn't stop filling with water


If this only happens when the machine is turned on,the tube from the tub to the water level switch is pinched or broken. If the clear plastic tube is not pinched or broken,the water level switch in the control console is bad. If the machine lets water through when it is in the OFF position,the water valve where the hoses connect are bad.

Water won't stop filling


If the water still flows in when the machine is off the inlet solenoid is faulty, if when you push start it fills and keeps filling then the problem will be with either the electronics or the pressure switch.
You really need to get someone who has experience with whirlpool machines to look at it for you.

Water doesn't stop filling


If you turn power off to machine (or unplug) and washer continues to fill, you need to replace the water inlet valve. (the part the hoses connect to) If cutting power stops the water fill, you have a problem with the water level switch or the tubing leading to it.

Whirlpool top loader


You either have a defective pressure switch or water inlet valve. Start to fill the machine with warm water so that both solenoids on the water inlet valve (hot and cold) are activated. After about 30-60 seconds, push the timer knob in to stop water flow. If the water continues to flow, replace the water inlet valve. If this is the case, it may take a few times of starting and stopping water flow to allow solenoid to heat up and become symptomatic. If water flow stops abruptly each time knob is pushed in, you most likely have a defective pressure switch (water level switch).
