Hey, have a Maytag washer model #lat8435aae that stop agitating but does spin.  Have no problem with filling or empting, goes thru cycle normally just doesnt agitate.  Didn't try the cord trick on motor yet.  Have read the other response in other thread which help identify motor. When it goes thru cycle you can hear a ticking from what I believe to be timer.  Belts have been replaced in past few years and look fine.

If your washer spins in all cycles correctly then your motor and lid switch have to be good. If your unit fills fine and the timer advances by itself through the wash section on its own then your pressure switch is fine. Do you have a meter so we can do some checks to your timer outputs??

You can get a Volt/Ohm meter for under 15 bucks at Radio Shack. To be SURE, you need one.

Radio shack must be pretty close. I am going on the assumption that everything I wrote to you in my first reply was correct. If that was the case we can continue. Let your unit fill up with water and let the timer advance on click. With the timer pulled out in the run position(and according to what you said motor not making a sound, no hums, clicks etc), you would want to do a 120VAC check at the timer from Black 32 to Yellow 16. Do you read 120VAC or nothing??

If it reads 120VAC across the two terminals the cam 6 is open. Thus, bad timer. You can order it by clicking on the link above. Good Job!

Remember to proof read!! What I meant to say was that you have an open cam 6 in the timer. Replace the timer!! Good job!

If the cam was closed you would of read nothing. Just like a light switch. With it in the off position you read 120VAC across the two wires. When the light is on, you will read 0 VAC across the same two wires because it is closed and there is not the two opposite potentials. As far as timer removal, carefully pry the center of the timer knob out. It is just pressed in. After that, you will see a clip that is holding your knob on. Carefully pry the clip off an remove the knob and spring that is behind it. Your timer dial is then just pressed onto the shaft of your timer. After you remove the dial, you will see two screws, I believe 5/16" that hold your timer to the control panel. Remove those and the timer will slip out the back..

You will read 0 in the off position because this is not a light switch. That was a comparison I should of left on the shelf for my next tech training class. You have a bad timer, its bad, shot, kaput, finished. Its also broke! Or as they say here in Georgia, "THAT THERE TIMER IS SLAP TORE UP!!"   Get yourself a timer and you'll be good to go!
