Major Appliances/waher wont spin


Kitchen Aid superba washer. Model #KAWS850GQ1. I came out this morning to spin out the water in the machine and it sounded funny while spinning. It kept stopping and starting then after a few minutes just quit. It will not do anything no humming or anything in any spin mode on the timer. It fills I just dont want to fill it up in case the motor died. Is that possible this machine is hardly used. Please help me. I am very good at mechanics just need some advise. I see on the schematic there is a capacitor for the motor to start.

First thing I would check is the lid switch.  If this switch breaks, it will not drain or spin.  When replying, Does the machine actually agitate?  

Waiting to hear from you,
Eric and Ann Campion
