    Sounds like you have a lid switch problem. Do you hear a click when you close the lid? If the switch is not pressed, the machine thinks the lid is open and wont continue past a certain point. If it's the easy model, just tightening the 4 hinge screws on the right and left hand sides of your lid should correct the issue. If it's the more complicate "pin" style (you have a pin in the lid that pushes down on a hole in the top of the unit). For that style, you will need to replace the switch. This can be purchased from a local appliance parts retailer or online form the manufacture's web site with your model number (just under the lid in the rear center). Once you get a lid switch, you remove the console screws and swing the console up. You unplug the lid switch (green, white, and gray wires). Next you Remove the brass cabinet clips (push down then away with a large screw driver). Tilt the cabinet forward, remove the 2 phillips screws underneath the lid next to the hole for the pin. There is also a green ground wire on the switch. You unscrew this with a 5/16 nut driver or socket. Reassemble in reverse.

Since I haven't heard back on this in over a week, I will assume it's been resolved with the clarification questions.

Stops in the middle of wash cycle


If the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:
It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.
It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

You might have a bad lid switch. Are you able too add clothes to washer when it agitates without it stopping? If so check the lid switch.
