My washer stops after the wash cycle. It starts up again when I spin the knob around to the rinse cycle. Then it stops again when it time to drain and spin. I use to be able to start it back up by pressing down on the lid but that doesn't work anymore. Model tag #110 26892690

** kenmore 80 series washer model # 110 26892690 **

That is a Whirlpool built 'direct drive' washer design.

** it stops when it time to drain and spin. **

The lid switch will prevent the washer from spinning (where the drain usually also takes place), as a safety precaution. A failure of it is a common cause for your symptoms.

That is further evidence of a likely lid switch problem, maybe its mounting has broken?

You can read about replacing the lid switch on your washer design at the following link:
