Lol I found the solution on YouTube. All it takes is a zip tie because the lid switch for he 90s series Kenmore washer is two half pieces glued together

I am trying to figure out what exactly is wrong with our 110. We have the portable washer and it worked great, up until it just didn't work. I noticed before it quit the buttons were hard to push. I thought it was my fingers. Just not hitting the button right. So I watched my hand and saw I was. It did that last load and that was it. The control panel still lights up for a few seconds and than goes blank. You cannot select anything. I thought it might be the lid switch because if the lid isn't latched, anything gets caught in the way, it will not work. Kids socks get in the darndest places. Anyone have this issue? It's driving me crazy. If so, how did you fix it? Thank you.

Umm, why is my detailed question about a Kenmore 80 Series (or is it a 110 Series?) washing machine being recognized as spam by your automated mediation system?  I even created an account and logged in before typing and submitting the comment/question.  ???
