Washer is a Whirlpool model TAWB600JQ0, it pumps water, agitates but stopped spinning. I tried spinning in regular, gentle and permanent press modes the spin cycle would not work in any cycle. I moved the timer control to the spin cycle and it still wouldn't spin. The timer control doesn't move after wash cycle.

There are a few things that could stop the spin cycle.
2. Timer Control Contacts
3. Lid Switch
4. Timer Motor
6. Belts Tensioner
Checking the schematic, you have the push-pull (on-off) switch on the timer control, timer control contacts, the lid switch and the water level switch that could stop the timer motor from running.
There is an industry standard that washers are designed with. This prevents the washer from spinning if the lid is up. So if the lid switch is bad your washer wouldn't spin. Since this is the easiest to check, check it first.
First unplug washer from 120vac.
To check the lid switch, you will need to take the control console loose and tilt it back. Remove the screws at the ends of the back of console. Pull the ends forward and tilt console back. Now find the three terminal jack and plug with (white green white) wires pull the plug out of the jack. Place a jumper wire between the two white wires. Turn timer control to Spin Cycle, then carefully plug washer power cord into 120vac. If the washer spins, your lid switch is bad and needs to be replaced. If this fixes your problem, come back and let us know and we will cover lid switch replacement.
If this doesn't solve the spin problem, come back and we will continue troubleshooting.
To check further, if needed, belts, belts tensioner and clutch in that order. Remove water from washer, then lay on back and remove front panel, two screws on bottom lip of panel.
If you have any dought in performing any of the procedures, contact an appliance repair company for help. Don't take chances.
