First off I can tell you the water valve coils are probably cooked / burned out. With POWER OFF / unit unplugged you can remove one wire from each of the coils and check for resistance across the coils. No resistance = open coil = no fill. NO FILL = no agitate because the water level pressure switch is trying to sense the water level that never rises. If there is no water then there will be no agitation.

If you really want to see if it will agitate in it's current condition you can fill the unit with a garden hose on a low level water setting and fill it a little over half way to see if it will agitate. (You will have to remove the hose and close the lid)

If that works then the water vavle would be the culprit causing your condition. The wire wound in the coil windings of the water valve is smaller in thickness than a human hair and would easily fail if 220VAC was put across a 110V winding.

Kenmore washing machine 80 Series 110 20802 990 Will not agitate or spin"

You need to replace the Kenmore Washer Lid Switch. I had the same problem so being lazy I would just push down on the washer's lid and it would push the lid switch further down. making the water drain. after a while I just replaced the lid switch.

Kenmore washer 80 series 110 model not spinning.

unless your washer is over 20 years old, then it wont have a belt. the temperature of the water wont have anything to do with it spinning or not.
need to know if it agitates or drains and just wont spin.
if it agitates but no spin or drain, then you have a bad lid switch.
if it wont agitate or spin, but will drain, then you have a broken drive coupling.
