Most often the lid swtch is out of alignment, less often the switch fails

with the lid open examine the underside of the lid for the plastic 'tooth' that is supposed to engage the switch, if broken or missing replace, test
with the lid open and the washer turned on, use a ballpoint pen to engage the switch plate in the hole at the right side of the lid
If the washer starts, adjust the switch position, test
If the washer does not start
remove the edge trims from the console
remove the screws from the lower corners of the console
slide consloe forward ~1/2 inch, flip up and over
ensure cable is connected to lid switch connector
try lid switch again with ball pen
if washer does not start the switch has failed,
remove metal retainer clips from rear of washer top, remember installed position, you have to put them back
lift washer case 1 inch slide forward, lay down, remove switch
replace
reassemble in reverse order, test

3-5 times a month, takes about 25 minutes, the switch costs $7.95+tax

Kenmore 80 series washer


Your transmission is not engaging thats why the speed changes your making will sometimes get it to work.Honestly any machine after the 10 year age mark is not worth the cost of replacing the transmission.
