If the washer fills and stops at the rinse cycle, and then
will not spin or drain, you more than likely have a defective lid switch.
If you open and close the washer lid and do not hear a “clicking” sound, the
switch has probably come loose, or has broken.
There are two mounting screws that hold the switch in place along the
washer rim. Also, inspect the lid to
ensure the small plastic piece that pushes down on the switch when the lid is
closed has not broken off. This is
called the “lid strike”. If the lid
strike is broken or missing, the lid switch will not activate. If you diagnose the problem and need to
replace the switch, you can click on the following link for advice on how to replace
If you need further assistance, such as where to get replacements parts, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
NOTE: You do not need to drain the wash tub to replace the switch. Once the switch has been replaced, the washer should spin and drain, which will prevent you from needing to bail water.

Sounds like the motor may be bad but the only way to know for sure is to do some electrical testing with a volt/ohm meter and the wiring diagram located within the appliance. If possible use the meter and the wiring diagram to check input/output voltages looking for discrepancies between the diagram and the actual meter readings.
