Washer fills but would not agitate or spin.

The lid switch on my Kenmore 110 had broken. I removed the two snap-on end caps from the control panel, exposing two phillips head screws. remove the screws and tilt the control panel back. Then remove the two large clips that fasten the cabinet to the back of the washer. Tilting the cabinet forward allows easy access to the lid switch, wiring, and connector assembly. 1/4 inch nutdriver needed for the ground wire fastener. Lid switch is mounted with two phillips head screws and is easily replaced.

Washer would not spin or drain

I started the repair by reading online about possible causes. Once it proved to be the switch I used your site to identify the right switch. Your site was the only one that had picture of the switch for easy id. I then read about other repairs and followed their lead. Easy.
