** now it wont spin **

Will it still agitate during the wash portion of a cycle?

** it does evrything but drain **

You first stated it wouldn't "spin". Now you're saying it won't "drain". Has the problem changed?

** now its leaking **

At what part(s) of the cycle and from where on the machine??

Please clarify the actual symptom(s) being experienced.

OK have you verified that the lid switch at least makes that click sound when you put the cover down?

it's on the right hand side and there is a little arm on the lid that pushes it down when you close the lid.

it prevents it from spinning when the lid is open for safety reasons.

** it wasnt spinning becaus it wasnt draining **

The machine will attempt to spin whether it drains or not. The machine doesn't know the difference.

If it stopped spinning AND draining *together*, the lid switch could be the problem as Larry suggested.

- Direct Drive Washer Lid Switch

- Kenmore 110.48722791 Lid Switch

Another symptom of a lid switch failure would be the timer 'sticks' at that one place in the cycle and never moves through to the rest of the cycle on its own.
