Kenmore 25852 Top Load Washer dead

In the middle of a wash cycle our Kenmore 25852 Top Load Washer just stopped running. It is as if the circuit is dead. I've check it with a meter, it's OK. I tried the screw driver door switch trick. Nothing. Does this thing have a mains fuse?
Any other ideas?

Check the lid switch again. There are two wires going to this switch, jump these two together, if it works replace the switch.

    I would see if power is getting to the motor if so, the motor is bad

The washing machine will not spin

If it works other than the spin cycle you should probably check your lid switch. I believe that will run you maybe 30-40 bucks or so. Good luck.

My washing machine will work on the wash cycle but will not spin.

if no sound in spin cycle, lid switch. if motor is running but no spin, motor coupler is likely. or foreign object is physically holding tub ie nail on tub hole etc.
