When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.

Check the lid down safety switch. On the lid there is a small spike that goes through a hole when the lid is down.

Under the hole is a switch that allows the timer to advance and the washer to spin only when the lid is down. Two screws hold the switch in place and the plastic switch will sometimes break and be hanging by the wires.

I have the same problem. Found this advice. Its exactly what it was. I stuck a screwdriver in the hole, the swith clicked, the machine began to spin and the water drained. The 2 screws were worn. I'm going to replace them and save a ton of money. Now I have to call the appliance guy and cancel the call. Thanks!

I followed advise of thx115613 and replaced the lid latch on my older model Kenmore and it solved my problem of not rinsing and spinning. Easy to get to the lid latch on the inside top right side of the machine.

Vanessa the magnetic lid latch are a two fold mechanism, the magnet "makes" a contact inside the switch move and that activates the relay that energizes the latching mechanism locking the lid into place, this assuring no one can open it while the machine is running

I called a Sears technician and he fixed the washer. It took out some parts and replaced it. and it's working now.

But my dryer just stopped working. It just wouldn't start.
