Question about Kenmore 27632 Top Load Washer
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.
Newer model Whirlpool / Kenmore washers use a Lid Switch as a safety device. Unless the switch senses that the lid on the washer is closed, the washer will neither agitate nor spin.
Older models only used the switch during the spin cycle.
Try to bypass the Lid Switch by removing the Console and jumping the two outermost pins on the switch.
This is a Whirlpool PDF on how these washers operate. It has a diagram on jumping the switch as well as a detailed section on how the transmission works.
It also has a troubleshooting guide.
To bypass the switch, you only have to disconnect the power to the washer, tilt the console back, unplug the switch and using an short piece of insulated wire, jump the two outermost contacts on the connector coming from the console and plug the washer back in.
Following is a description of how to gain access to the console and how to remove the cabinet if necessary.
With the jumper in place, try to re-start the washer.
If it works, the Lid Switch is a relatively inexpensive part and only requires you to access the console and remove the cabinet.

SOURCE: washer doesn,t spin
Looks like chat support session must have timed out. The answer to your last question was, yes, pres. analog switch with a red, a white, and a blue wire to it.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
There is likely to be a problem with either the lid solenoid/lock or the 'lid closed' sensor requiring a service engineer's attention I suggest. Sorry ;-0(
If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Do you here the motor running on the agitation cycle yet it doesn't agitate? If so the agitator coupling is the problem.I have included a youtube video that will show you step by step how to repacle the coupling.The part number in the title of the video(WH49X10042) is the part number that you would need(Hotpoint is made by GE) it could be ordered by simply googling that part number
here is the lik for that video http://youtu.be/N26MCQKuXn0
