Maytag MLE2000AYW Gets "Stuck" at Drain/Spin

Have a stackable Maytag MLE2000AYW (Serial No. 37856725ZM). Kind of hard to explain exactly what is going on. I downloaded a repair manual and from the troubleshooting section printed a dial diagram and attached it under the control button. The machine gets "stuck" at the drain/spin phase. The door locked button is on, and the switches are all working. Eventually the power shuts off, including the power light, but the pump keeps running, so much so that it gets hot. I have replaced the pump because the original one got very hot, but that did not correct the problem. I have checked the cold water inlet screen and it is clear. If I turn the control knob around a few times to set it on spin, and hit the power button, sometimes it will spin and complete the cycle to off. I also noticed that when it is "stuck" sometimes you can hear the control motor running, but it is obviously not advancing.

Thanks in advance for any help.
Sounds like the main control board is the problem. Disconnect power to the machine and see if you notice any burnt spots on the main control board.

Look at post #5 here:

Here's the main control board for your model:

You get a $60 credit on your credit card when you return the old one.

Thank you for your reply, I appreciate the help. I checked the board out, as well as the motor control board and both look fine. No burnt spots.
I also failed to mention that the problem is intermittent. Every once in a while it will run though the entire cycle. But most of the time it gets stuck.
Intermittent problems are the hardest to nail down, but since you found no burnt spots on the control board, it sounds like possibly the timer since you said you hear the timer motor running but its not advancing.

Here's the timer for your model:
