First, see the Sears parts site for your washer.
Also see the Whirlpool (Kenmore) Service Manual for top load, direct drive washers.
The first thing I'd try is using a different cycle. If the washer works as it should, the problem points to the timer.
I'd also check to make sure that when replacing the switch, the connections to the timer haven't come loose.
Since you've replaced the Lid Switch, the motor has power for the drain and spin cycles.
These washers use a reversing motor. The motor turns one way for agitating and reverses for the drain and spin.
Since you cannot hear anything when it is supposed to be agitating, the problem does point to the timer or motor.

Testimonial: "that does make sense. I'll try it out on a different cycle. The timer is going through its motions but I'll double check for any loose connections. "
It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question
