Default Kenmore Washer will fill only, but will not run.

I have a Kenmore 70 Series Washer; Model # 110.26702690. The Washer will fill with water but will not start to run. I manually moved the control knob to rinse, spin, different cycles, etc. but does absolutely nothing. I bypassed the water level switch; by using a jumper, but still will not run. Any suggestions, please?

WLC ( you tried ), timer contact, lid switch ( not all models, some only stop the spin and drain ), motor, motor wire are prime suspects.

WLC ( pressure switch ) stops the power to the fill valve and redirects the power to the timer to start the washer, if the timer starts to advance when the water shuts off the WLC is likely ok.

Water level control/pressure switch is the same item. Thought you tried that?

The motor was not getting any voltage, there was a white wire that was broke right at the Molex connector. It was difficult to see, the wires to the connector were covered with black tape. Thank you for your help! The washer now runs, but there is a "Ticking" sound, very noticeable during all cycles; washing, draining, spinning, rinsing. It does not do it while filling. Any ideas?

Does the drain pump run while washing and spinning? Because this "Ticking" occurred during the entire cycle except when filling.

Yes. When ever the motor is running, the drain pump is running.

Same problem occurred with me last month. Washing drain pump was not working properly because of button in the pump. It took me hours to sort out the problem, so I am bit careful while washing clothes now
