Here is how I do it. Is it the motor or is it the timer right? That is the question. My solution: I have a control panel off of an old machine. I tied the 3 wires together on the water level switch(that is an old trick to get a washer to agitate without water in the basin) and jumped out the lid safety switch. I use it as a motor checker for direct drives. I also plug it into the base of a washer to check for spin and wash. If everything under works I know it is the timer or control board.

Check for power going down to your motor leads. Also in some models there's a little capacitor on the back wall of the shell that could be cutting down the voltage. If you have power going to your motor it's most likely your timer.
