Try jumpering the lid switch. If it spins then the lid switch is your problem. If it doesnt spin then your problem will be in the transmission, clutch, or brake assemblys.
let me know if the lid switch is not the problem and we can go from there.

Yes it does to a certain extent. The motor must pause and engage some functions in the transmission before it will spin. If you open the lid i may not necessarily make the motor stop spinning. It may only disengage it from the transmission.
Try the lid switch. I got a nickle that says its shot.
Ok Are you sure the drain pump is not spinning the wrong way? If it is not spinning the correct direction it will pump the water through the system and not out the drain.
Also the jumper may have come loose on the lid switch. If it did then the unit will not pump the water out.
Try putting the unit back on the first pump out and spin and make sure it does it again. If it pumps and spins then you will have a timer problem.
If it doesnt your jumper came loose.
Drain pump. The impeller has to be spinning off of the shaft. or it is like you said. Its just not getting up enough force to kick the water over the trap. Either way you will need a replacement motor. I dont think that they come separatly.
Your welcome Hoyt.
Thank you for the accept. Please let me know how you make out with the new pump.
