unhook the wiring harness from the drain pump put the washer on spin and check for voltage to the water pump harness if the water pump is getting voltage replace the water pump, that washer will not spin if the pump is bad, check that and let me know, thanks.

well if you tested the lid switch for sure and its good then the water pressure switch is bad not sending voltage back out when the pressure is off the switch. So change the pressure switch and that will fix it.
