Would appreciate any help diagnosing this -- washer still agitates fine, but when it comes to the part of any cycle where it's supposed to drain or spin, nothing happens: no sound from the motor, just a little bit of clicking from the rotary dial, even it just gets stuck.

I've seen lots of threads about the motor coupling, but am not sure that's the problem, since the motor isn't even trying to run. Also read about problems with the switch for the lid -- could that be it? or maybe the rotary control thingy?

Greatly appreciate the help.

** Kenmore washer 110.20912991 won't drain or spin. seen threads about the motor coupling, but am not sure that's the problem **

It wouldn't affect draining but would prevent both spin AND agitate.

** even [timer] just gets stuck. read about problems with the switch for the lid -- could that be it? **

That is the most likely cause, yes.

If the washer can't determine that the lid is closed it will not allow the timer to advance to the spin portion of the cycle (where draining also takes place) as a safety precaution.
