I have a Kenmore Series 90 Washer, Large Capacity, Model 110-24922202, which works fine, but Spin cycle does not work; I don't believe it has anything to do with the lid switch, because I can open lid and push in lid switch with a screwdriver, and it still will not spin -- unless I manually spin the drum, and it then ''catches'' on its own and completes the spin cycle. I also think water is sitting in the bottom part of the machine. Please help!

Re: Spin cycle does not work; I can open lid and push
There is likely a problem with the clutch, or transmission, or both. A quick check would be to LEAN (don't lay the machine on it's back) the washer back, and check for oil spray on the inside of the cabinet walls, or just a puddle of oil underneath. If there is oil, the transmission will need replaced, along with the clutch. When the oil leaks out, it tends to get into the clutch band and cause slipping, (clutch may look brown from heat, should be shiny) which is why you have to give it a boost with your hand. hope that helps some.

To bypass the switch, you only have to disconnect the power to the washer, tilt the console back, unplug the switch and using an short piece of insulated wire, jump the two outermost contacts on the connector coming from the console and plug the washer back in.
Following is a description of how to gain access to the console and how to remove the cabinet if necessary.
It could have gone out of balance. See if the drum looks off center and center it if necessary. Turn it off and back on to reset the switch. If that doesn't work, try pressing on the lid either 2/3 of the way back on the right or all the way back on the left (depends on the model -- try both) and see if it starts. If it does, I would suspect the lid switch.
Sounds like the lid switch is not working.It is a safety feature to prevent the washer from spinning if the lid is open.If you look a the lid,you will see a small point that sticks out,The switch is locate under the rim,right where that point would contact with lid closed.
