Whirlpool Washer - water fills only

I've double-confirmed that the lid switch works (SPST). The water level switch works (SPDT). The main pull switch works. The timer motor runs when I jumper AC to it. (yeah, I pulled it out to the workbench).
One thing that is odd. On the schematic diagram on the back cover, this is listed as a LA9500XTW1. Also, I don't see how the timer gets its NEUTRAL return path on the diagram so it can run. Could the diagram be wrong?
Come on you experts!

Water goes in, NOTHING else runs. Lid switch is good. Water level switch is good. Timer START/STOP switch is good.
I'm gonna up-end it next to look at the wiring to the motor.

Okay - inspection of the motor connector revealed discoloration on two pins. Possibly this is a higher current set of pins. I suspect this is an indicator of an overloaded washer as I recently had to replace the coupler.
Anyway, I pulled the 2 female pins out of the shell and gently squeezed them a little tighter and plugged it back in. The washer now spins AND the timer now runs. There must be some kind of neutral return through the motor to the timer.
Gonna put it together and see how it goes.

Starting to feel like a one-sided conversation....
Hello, my one-sided friend. Please, accept my deepest apologies for your not having received a reply in less than one hour here at Mecca of appliance repair. I hope, nay, I pray that you apply for you a full refund of all the Ameedican Dollars that you have paid to receive help here at this most pathetic excuse of appliance repair forums.
May I ask one question before you click away in an indignant huff: how did you test the lid switch? Did you use a meter to measure the resistance and get a numerical reading of the voltage passed through the switch or did you simply listen for a clicking sound or use your test light?

Not that it matters now, but the agitate cycle of the washer operates with the lid open. So, I didn't believe the lid switch was at fault. Spin, however, does require that the lid be closed.

That was the funniest message board posting that I have ever read in my life!
