PAV2300AWW No spin

Maytag PAV2300AWW washer. When set to spin mode, nothing turns, but I can hear the timer clicking away. Lid switch seems to be fine. Motor and Drain pump turn freely. Clutch assembly turns until it locks up, then I can turn it the opposite way.

Do I need a new motor?

You have to answer one question before the decision can be made about the motor:

Is there 120VAC to the motor when you have spin selected?  The red wire at #4 position on the motor plug to the nearby ground should be 120VAC with spin selected, lid closed.

If there is no voltage to the motor circuit, it is the timer.
