My Kenmore washer won't go into spin cycle. I replaced the timer with the same results. The lid switch looks OK but can it go bad internally? Side note...the timer model number I replaced was 3953935. However, the MN on the schematic was 3954004. Does that mean anything?
All the cycles work except spin.

Yes, A lid switch CAN be bad, even though it may not appear to be beoken. You'll need to test it by a continuity test.
