I have a Kenmore 600 and it quit agitating while washing, I have been able to get it restarted by forcing the lid back and down then after a few minutes mit stops again

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Kenmore is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

At least 12 years

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If possible yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Thank you. The model number will look like 110.12345678. The tag is at the back of the opening once the lid is raised. Oftentimes, you have to close the lid about halfway to see it.

The lid switch will need to be replaced, a very common failure. The video at the link below shows how it is replaced!
