This Washer will Fill with Water, Agitate for 5 Minutes then Stops.  I can get it to restart by moving the Dial to the Rinse setting but it will stop again after 5 Minutes.
[/size]Also, it won't Drain or Spin (totally dead) and the Lid Switch clicks when closing the lid.
[/size]Therefore, could it be the Drive Motor, Capacitor, Timer or something else (please include instruction's on how to check electrical part with multimeter)?

What I do is I unplug the motor and I have a test rig I made out of an old washer. I plug the motor to it and check to see if the motor washes and spins attached to the washing machine. If it passes that test I know it is the timer. I suspect that is what it is too from the way you describe it. I use an analog meter to check the cap. The cap should not show open (needle don't move) or closed circuit (needle goes all the way over and stays) It should hop up and drop back down and when leads are reverse do the same. never have seen any harness problems but I did come across a motor with a bad overload:
