Hi, I hope someone can help me with this problem as I really don't want to pay a repair guy $75 to tell me my machine isn't worth the cost of the repair.    My 8 yr old Kenmore 90 series washing machine ( model # 110.28902790 )won't spin unless I open then close the lid during the spin cycle.  I have watched the washer through many whole cycles (the heavy duty cycle and the perm press- both do the same thing). It washes OK, pauses, drains with a little spin, pauses, tries to spin and it just makes a uuuah-uuuah -uuuah sound. When I lift the lid it "clunks"  and the tub turns a little. when the lid is then closed it starts to spin and seems to spin properly. It rinses OK, pauses, drains with a spin OK, pauses, then does the same thing when it is supposed to spin. Occasionally, it will go into the rinse cycle spin with no lifting of the lid. I've been told that this could be a timer problem or a neutral drain transmission problem. Do you have any ideas? Can you tell me how to determine if it is one or the other? The timer I could replace myself but I'm not sure about tackling a transmission repair!! Thanks.

You might have a lid switch problem.  By lifting the lid and closing it again is making contact. See if seems to be loose or falling down inside of the case.

Thanks for the response - the lid switch seems to be in good shape -but I haven't checked the wires at the far end of the cable-i assume that i need to remove the cabinet to do that?
