Most of the time, a visual inspection of the MCU will reveal a blown component, and remove all doubt...but yes...it sounds like ya need the MCU/motor upgrade.

Advance to timer to spin and press Start button.  Does the lock indicator light?  If not, check voltage at the door lock switch and continuity of the spin enable switch, both in the latch assy.  Check the inertia balance switch on the outer tub for continuity.  Examine the back of the machine control for visible damage to any of the resistors.  As Brother Kurtius advises, check the MCU first for damage.
