Question about Washing Machines
Pretty much exactly what guest above me said. I have a lsq8543jq1 also, was stopping after agitation.
At first thought it was something more serious, since the dial seemed to make a humming/grinding/buzzing noise when it was switching to agitation cycle, but that seems to just be a timer before the drain/spin cycle kicks in.
I had a washer full of water, so rather than wait till I could get a part (or hand drain -what a pain), I just grabbed a paper clip and rigged the switch so it thinks the door is shut and voila, drains and finishing cycle as I type.
The switch is a safety device to prevent accidents; bad injuries could result if the door is opened while the washer is in spin cycle. I don't recommend this as a long term solution - especially if you have kids. I have 2 and will be ordering the new part asap.

Replace the lid switch. This is a top-loader, correct?? If it filled with water, went through agitation, then just stopped before pump-out, the lid switch is bad. Lift the lid. You will see a small rectangular shaped hole on the right side. The lid switch actuator is there. When you close the washer lid, you should hear a click just before the lid fully closes. If not, your lid switch is broken and not actuating. Good Luck ! ! !
