If the washer fills, agitates, then stops at the rinse and won't drain, or if the washer does an initial fill, then stops, this is a symptom of a lid switch malfunction.
The following link explains how to access and/or replace one:http://www.fixya.com/support/r385198-replacing_lid_switch
The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer
top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim
of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim
) and make sure they are snug.
If the model number you have this listed under is correct, the part number for a replacement lid switch is 3949247. This is a very simple repair, that usually costs about $30 to repair yourself.
Appliancepartspros.com, pcappliancerepair.com and searspartsdirect.com usually have excellent exploded view diagrams of what I am referring to. Just type in your model number and look under the "Top and Cabinet Parts" section. The lid switch is listed as item 11 and the lid strike is listed as item 20.
If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. Post back with a correct model number if the model number is not correct. I hope this helps you.
