Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
I have checked drain pipe for obstructions, altered load sizes, water temps, cycles, tried one rinse cycle versus two, repeated just the spin cycles to try and remove the excess water...all to no avail.

When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.

You need to replace your pump. Make sure you have the washer either on something that will absorb water, or fix it outside/garage. Because these pumps hold extra water and that is why it is not recommended to keep them outside to do laundry in colder climates. The water can freeze in the pump and wreck it. Good luck. They actually are pretty easy to replace.

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. "
