It is probably the lid switch. The older models would allow wash but no spin if lid was open the newer ones won't spin or wash. If the lidswitch is good then I would check the capacitor. If it ain't got no charge the motor won't go.

I agree with JW, I would check the lid switch.

I looked up your model number and it uses lid switch part # 3949238
