My ancient Frigidaire top-loader still agitates well, but it does not spin.

The belt is worn but intact.

It makes noise during the spin cycle.

The tub drains, but the clothes are obviously still wet due to not spinning.

The lid switch still locks during spin cycle, and has the safety delay on the lock after the spin cycle completes.

If you manually depress the lid switch, with the lid open, and set it to spin, it makes noise like the motor is running, the tub doesn't spin, and when you release the switch it cuts the power.

From what I've read here, it sounds like I'm looking at a bad clutch and/or transmission.

I've also seen the "it's a bad lid switch" response given to similar symptoms a couple times. That doesn't seem likely to me with the lid still locking, and power still going to the motor, but is that still a possibility?

Possibly the belt issue, could be in trans. Remove the front of the machine so you can observe running in spin mode. If the trans pulley is turning problem is likely in trans. If motor is running but trans pulley not being turned by belt issue may be with belt and/or tensioner pulley.

When it's in wash cycle; belt, pulley, tensioner pulley are all turning, and agitator turning well in tub. Switch to spin cycle; none are moving, motor is making noise, and that's it. At least once, or twice it also produced a high pitched whine while in spin mode.

I'm guessing this is sounding more and more like the trans?
