One of the first things that you would check would be the lid switch following that you have assured that the switch is working then you would assure that the belt coming off the motor is not broken following your checking that the belt is intact the drive belt is located on this diagram as part number 28 http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/partsdirect/showSubComp.pd?imageUrl=http%3a%2f%2fc.searspartsdirect.com%2flis_png%2fPLDM%2fM0603003-00007.png
following that you assure that the belt is intact you would then check to see if the motor is working if it is not then you would remove the motor and do a bench test to the motor itself if the motor does work then you would look at needing a new motor control and make sure before removing the motor you check every connection point it happens in these units that sometimes the lower harness wire that goes from the motor to the control sometimes does not seat properly in the connection and you have to unplug and replug the connector to get a good connection http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/partsdirect/showSubComp.pd?imageUrl=http%3a%2f%2fc.searspartsdirect.com%2flis_png%2fPLDM%2fM0603003-00012.png if you have any further questions message me back I await your reply Thanks Rick

When the washer will wash and wont drain or spin the issue is caused due to either of these two things...the lid switch or something clogged in the drain pump assembly...First check the lid switch assembly, you can also take out the switch and try to jump start the lid switch...if the washer spins then replace it if it does not then check the drain pump assembly. As it washes fine so I believe the control and motor is fine.
Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance. Daniel

re original issue, see if R11 is burned. if so, need to change R11 resistor and associated triac, and probably wax motor so it won't do it again. temporary fix just cut out R11, door won't lock. if your model won't spin that way, depress actuator for microswitch from door wax motor. instructions on web.

It sounds like the drum bearings may need replacing. This is not a small job, so be sure of what you're doing before you attempt to fix it yourself. Please feel free to get back to me for instructions on replacing the seal and bearings.
