new drain pump not the fix

Kenmore Elite clothes washer will not drain. The OE message appears. There are no cloggers or kinks in drain tube. I have replaced the drain pump assembly. This did not solve the problem. Before switching the pump I could drain the water out and the washer would spin to finish the cycle. What else can I do

The lid switch assembly prevents the washer from spinning when the lid is open. If the lid switch assembly fails, the washer will not drain. To determine if the lid switch assembly is defective, use a multimeter to test each of the lid switches for continuity. If a lid switch does not have continuity, replace it.
