Need help diagnosing problem....

My Maytag model LAT9457BAE top load washer won't spin or drain.
Symptoms...
1) Timer moves thru entire cycle.
2) Lid switch appears to operate correctly. (i.e., agitator stops when lid is opened.
3) No humming sounds or burning smells.
4) I can hear faint sound of timer ticking when spin or drain cycle should be going.
5) Both belts are in-place.
6) Hot and Cold water fill to proper levels --- no over-fill.
7) Drain does not appear to be clogged. Removed drain hose from wall outlet and was able to drain water into a bucket placed on the floor.
8) Wash/Agitate cycle seems to be working OK. Agitator moves CCW.
9) Same symptoms whether timer is set to "Light" "Delicate" or "Heavy" setting.

Wiring diagram is available online(Replacement parts for MAYTAG LAT9457BAE WASHER-TOP LOADING | AppliancePartsPros.com, but I'm not sure where to start testing based on symptoms described above. Any Suggestions? Does this washer have an "out of balance" switch? --- Some forums mention this OOB switch as a possible problem.

Need help Soon! Wife is threatening to buy a New Washer.

Thanks!

You need to take off the front cover and see if the motor is turning when it is supposed to be spinning. If it is, or trying to turn then the transmission could be the problem and if so plan on that trip to Mr. New Washing Machine store.

Default I'm having the same issue

I have a Maytag Dependable Care washer model LAT8706AAE.
It's no longer spinning and draining the water unless I open and close the lid when I know that spinning is suppose to start.
In other words, if I do nothing the washer is agitating for the whole duration of the program and completes the program with water and detergent in it.
If I open and close the lid when the clock is actually showing that the washer is supposed to spin, the washer suddenly starts spinning and pumping out the water.
What could be the defective part? Thanks.

It can be the timer or the lid switch. Check the lid switch first but I think it is the timer if the timer is continuing to operate when the is not working.

Thanks for replying to my question.
The switch seems to be ok. I tested it and it turns on and off the circuit. I don't understand though why it has four connectors. I even opened it up and it seems to have a bimetallic strip built in. Is the purpose of that just to protect for overheating or it's got some other purpose that can generate the behavior I'm experiencing?

I don't know. When I work with lid switches if they work I leave them alone, if they don't I replace them.
