I had the same problem.
The sensor which determines whether or not the lid is down may be going bad.
To tell - turn the washing machine on and let it fill with water. At this point, the washing machine stops. So raise the lid and place a screwdriver into the hole around the collar of the washing machine. This is the same hole that the lid, when closed, presses into, activating the sensor to notify the machine that the lid is closed so it can begin washing.

There are two possible causes. The most likely cause is the lid switch, which is supposed to keep you from sticking your hand into the moving basket. On many washers this only keeps the machine from spinning, but on other models it prevents agitating as well. The other possibility is the water level switch, but that usually causes no filling or overfilling if it's bad.
Both parts are available from Sears (www.searspartsdirect.com) and many other online sources. (I normally use the Sears site to find a part number if I don't already know it, then search for that number on Google. It's a great way to find good prices on more costly parts.) There are also a number of sites with detailed information about how to remove the cabinet to get at the parts if you want to try doing it yourself. Replacing these parts is pretty simple if you're comfortable with a screwdriver and have some mechanical ability.
If you'd rather have someone else repair the machine, this would normally be about a 1 hour plus parts charge for an appliance technician. It isn't time for a new washer yet.

Check lid switch. Most will not run with lid open and the switch may not be pressed down when door is closed
