I found lots of articles and youtube.com videos on changing transmissions on Kenmore Washers. But the problem was a lid (safety interlock) switch. As shown in the photos below, it was a simple process to identify the problem, remove the failed switch, and now all I need to do is order a replacement switch and install it.
