Check the lid switch plunger attached to the underside of the lid. If you don't see one, that's the problem.

It could agitate and still be a bad lid switch.

This is the newer style Frigidaire lid switch with the agitate switch being the micro switch attached to the outside of the switch. It is labeled as lid switch on the diagram, if this switch is bad it won't agitate.

The spin lid switch and lid lock bi-metal is the two contacts coming out the side of the main lid switch housing and is labeled as lid lock on the diagram. If this section of the switch assembly is bad it won't spin. It's not an uncommon problem to have the bi-metal that activates the lid lock arm break loose from it's spot welds to the terminals inside the housing assembly.
