It is great the washer cleans the clothes, but if you have to pull soaking wet clothes out, it would be upsetting. I found a similar question from a previous expert post that may help. I attached the link below. Just copy and paste. If you decide you do need an expert technician to diagnose and ake repairs, just visit Sears Home Services and use the handy scheduler.

Thank you for your question.

If the motor does not make any sounds in the spin cycle, I suspect the lid switch is the problem. If the lid switch is broken, the washer will still fill and agitate but when it gets to the drain and spin the washer will stall. A quick check you can do is to run a cycle with the lid switch jumped. If the washer operates, the lid switch need to be replaced.

To jump the lid switch you need to unplug the washer and open the console. I have provided you with the instructions for opening the console below. Once you have the console open, locate the connector for the lid switch. Place an insulated jumper between the gray and tan wires. Not the green it is a ground and will cause a short. After inserting the jumper make sure it will not touch anything metal, plug the washer in. start the washer in a cycle, and let it go. If the washer completes the cycle, you need to replace the lid switch. Do not leave the jumper in while you are waiting for the part. The jumper is only of the test.

To you replace the lid switch you have to remove the cabinet of the washer. The instructions for that are also in the image below. Once the cabinet is removed you can take the screws out securing the lid switch and remove the harness from the clips along the underside of the cabinet. Then reinstall the lid switch in the reverse order. Before you reassemble the cabinet, please read the instructions for installing the cabinet provided in the image.

I hope this is helpful. Please reply below if you need further assistance.
