Hi, Remove the end caps on the control panel. There is 2 screws in the front corners that need to be removed and the control panel will lift up. Locate the lid switch connection disconnect it. Use an insolated wire and jump the two brown wires and see if the washer will spin. The green wire is groun (Do not use that wire)
I hope this helps you.

This is a direct drive washing machine and if it fills and drains but doesn't agitate and spin, the problem is a broken motor coupler as indicated by the gear-like sound sliding by each other which means the motor is running. The machine drains because the drain pump is directly coupled with the rear spline of the motor. Replacing the motor coupler should solve the problem.
Disconnect power then release the console from the top of the cabinet. Pull or pry off the end caps then remove the screw that secures the console to the cabinet top. Once the screws are removed, pull forward and up on the console and lay it back on the hinges.
Disconnect the lid switch harness connector by pressing on the tab located in the middle and pulling it up.
The cabinet is attached to the rear of the washer by two brass-colored retaining clips. Insert a flat blade screwdriver into the turned-up edge of the clip, located on both sides, and then pry back to release the clip from the slot in the cabinet.
Open and hold the lid while grabbing the cabinet front opening then tilt the top of the cabinet toward you by pulling the cabinet away from the base. This releases the front and back slots of the cabinet from the tabs in the front and back of the base.
With the cabinet removed, pry the clips securing the pump to the motor off and remove the pump.
Disconnect the motor harness then remove the screw securing the bottom clip holding the motor and remove the clip. Hold the motor from the bottom while loosening the screw securing the top clip holding the motor. Remove the clip then pull the motor out of the washer.
Remove the broken coupler parts from the transmission and the motor shaft then tap the new coupler parts in place or until the splines are even with the edge of the coupler.
Remove the motor mounting plate to remove the coupler part in the transmission side more easily.
Once the coupler parts are properly installed, put the rubber grommet into the coupler in the motor then line up the remaining slots on the grommet with the coupler prongs in the transmission and put them together.
Secure the motor with the clips and the clips with the screws then reconnect the motor wiring harness to the motor terminals and reinstall the pump in reverse order of the removal steps.
Bring the cabinet to the front of the washer then slide the front bottom rail of the cabinet under the rail at the base of the machine then lay down the cabinet into position. Make sure the slots in the cabinet sit into the tabs at the base of machine.
Reconnect the lid switch harness then push the retaining clips back down into position to secure the cabinet to the rear of the machine. Reinstall and secure the console to complete the repair.

Try it in all the timer cycles. If it still does it then your transmission might need to be inspected. It is a simple design. Remove the agitator and then yank out the tranny. Remove the clutch and transmission cover. Inspect the main drive gear and the spin pawl beneath it.The main drive gear show in this 30 sec video is plastic (click on the link). The new gear comes with a matching pinion for around 75 bucks. More HERE

You need to replace the Kenmore Washer Lid Switch. I had the same problem so being lazy I would just push down on the washer's lid and it would push the lid switch further down. making the water drain. after a while I just replaced the lid switch.
