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.

SOURCE: Why My Kenmore 70 Series Washer Won't Drain Or Spin?

You need to replace the lid switch. This is located under the case. you have to take the case off to change this part. This is done by taking the 2 screws out of the front of the control panel. Then flip the panel back and remove the 2 brass clips that hold on the case. Then you can remove the whole washer case to get acces to the lid switch. This is a very common problem and an easy problem to fix.

DO NOT by pass a lid switch. It is installed as a designed safety feature to prevent bodily when opening the lid from moving parts. The CORRECT solution is to replace the switch. The following link explains step-by-step how to replace a lid switch:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385198-replacing_lid_switch

Replacements can be purchased at searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com, pcappliancerepair.com, or repairclinic.com. All these sites offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop all of them for the best deals. The first two web sites have excellent exploded view diagrams of your appliance to aid in parts location and assembly.

If you have any questions about this repair, or if you require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

PS This is not a difficult repair and it doesn't cost much ($25 to $35) on average for a replacement switch. Begin, fisrt by making sure the switch isn't loose or the lid strike (if equipped) isn't broken off. You may not need parts.

Fix it. Very easy fix and the part is not expensive. What you have is a direct drive motor. For ease of maintenance the machine is made in a way which makes it possible to service it in place without having to move it. You flip the controls up and pop the retaining clips in back, unplug the lid switch harness and tip the case towards you an out of the way. You can now access the pump, motor, and that pesky drive coupling. These do simply wear out but they usually will go if a comforter is washed in it or low water big load scenario.ea74271.jpg

You most likely have a broken coupler between the motor and gearcase.
You can buy the part for about $10 or have someone come out and replace it for about $150-200.
If you will post the complete model number from the the washer so I can see which style cabinet you have, I will try to walk you through the repair. It isn't very complicated if you are handy with home repairs.
With the age of the machine it probably just needs a coupler, but it could also have a problem in the transmission or basket drive that has caused the failure.
