I had the same problem. If you remember when it did work, you could have the door open during the wash (for adding bleach, etc) but wouldn't work during the spin. I replaced the switch and it worked fine after that.

saved $50 bucks at least and here's how......very easy. pulled out my washing machine from the wall. took the top cover off. (just the cover holding the timer button, load size, etc...) mine has 2 screws and 2 bolts taken off with a pair of wide nose pliers. once that is off look at the timer (from behind ofcourse) you will see a whole bunch of wires (all different colours and at least 20 of them) all going into a plastic piece that is connected to another plastic piece that is attached to the timer. pull these plastic pieces apart. WAIT!!! before you do, there is a clip that you have to push so that these 2 plastic pieces will come apart without force. once you press that little clip they will come apart easily. then if you look inside the plastic piece attached to the timer you will see what sort of looks like a bunch of flattened out pins. these are connectors and mine were dirty preventing a good connection. i used a metal nail file to clean them ( you can use a wood nail file or sand paper). then i put everything back together and was surprised and happy that everything worked like new again! good luck!!!!

This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.
First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.
Then see the following for how to release the console for access to the timer.
Then see the following Whirlpool / Kenmore Service Manual for top load, direct drive washers. It has troubleshooting and testing procedures as well as a description of the TWO types of timers. Each has different procedures for replacing them.
If yours is the metal type, the procedures call for unscrewing the timer knob before it can re removed.
You may need to use a thin needle nose pliers to hold the shaft on the back side of the timer in order to unscrew the knob.
