Re: No spin or drain on Kenmore 25972
Unless this is different from any washer we have ever owned, the door switch doesn't prevent or permit the pump from working but only the spin.
Go to the Sears website and follow links to the parts section.
Enter your complete model number and there should be a detailed parts illustration that would allow you to learn where it is located.

Check door switch: If
the lid switch is bad it will not drain or spin. Try this test: With lid open
let it finish wash cycle. Press lid switch down with screwdriver. Washer should begin draining.
Release switch. Motor should stop. Press
switch a second time. Washer should
start spinning as it continues to drain. If motor doesn't come on while lid
switch is pressed, replace the switch.

In most cases all brands will fill and agitate with the lid open, but will not drain or spin with the lid up.
It sounds to me like your lid switch is either bad or misaligned.
The first thing to check is the actuator plunger on the lid. Make sure it hasn't fallen or been broken off. Look for a piece hanging down from the lid that looks like a little finger that when the lid is closed, would hit and depress the lid switch ,which is under the top of the washer.
If it looks like the actuator is good shape then the lid switch is either bad or misaligned. Take a pencil or a bic pen and depress the lid switch. Making sure your washer is plugged in and in the spin mode. If it begins to rotate to spin and drain then see if a screw has fallen out that holds it in place or became loose not letting the actuator hit it correctly.
If the switch does not seem loose and it will not start the machine when depressed with a pencil it is probably time to change it out.
First thing is to remove the 2 screws from the console, they may be hidden in the front or bacl of console. After removing screws, lightly push the base of the console towards the front of the washer and pick up. This will expose your lid switch connection. Using a jumper wire, jump out the black and white wires then try advancing your washer into spin/drain. The culprit will usually be the lid switch assy.
you did remove the cabinet to replace the lid switch correct?, try removing it again and unclip the pump assydont remove the hoses, just unclip form motor assy and hold out of the way, try putting unit into a spin cycle now.. is it spinning ?? or at least he motor spinning??? this is a direct drive unit so as long as he motor spins the pump also spins, with exception of a bad pump , something clogged inside the pump, or an obstruction in the drain line itself.. if the motor not turning at this point id have to believe that switchisn't making contact( but is new and it sure should be)timers not sending down power (doubtfull).alll seems pretty doubtful less the bad switch( remember that with the cabinet removed youll need to TEMPORALLY jump out the lid switch,
