Washing Machine

My washing machine goes through the initial wash step fine. I can hear the timer prior to it getting to the rinse cycle. The drum does not empty the water at any time. It will not go to rinse cycle. If I turn off machine and reset it to the rinse setting, it works again. At no time can I get the spin cycle to work, nor can i get the machine yo run completely through wash, rinse, spin.. any suggestions as to what may be causing this problem? Thanks in advance for any help.[/i]

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II,,, also on tag inside door,, mod info is LSQ8543JQO.... i hope this helps,,, machine fills, agitates but when it is time to drain it appears that it does not get into that step. I can hear the timer but it will not go to draining step after timer stops ticking,, thanks for responding, any info you can suggest is appreciated

If you are still having the problem, check the lid switch. I had whirlpool washer and it had the same problem. I hired a repair man and he changed that and the machine is now working. The problem is normally caused by the lid cover being banged.
