Kenmore Portable Washer Won't drain or spin

Model 110.4472 Kenmore Portable Washer won't drain or spin. Drain and water fill come from the sink attachment. Was working great and than just stopped draining and spinning. Hoses are not plugged.
Agitation works find, just stopped spinning and draining. Any help to fix it myself would greatly be appreciated.

My washer did similar a couple months ago. Bad switch that senses if the lid is open / closed. Jumpered the bad switch and all works again (except for sensing the lid position of course).

Portable Kenmore won't drain or spin

I tried the lip switch. It test good so it isn't the problem. Had an appliance repair man come and he spent over an hour here. Did absolutely nothing and didn't have a clue what was wrong. Said he'd call the next day after he researched it more. He called and sent me to another repair service. I'm taking it in to them. Hopefully, it will be something not to expensive. I love my portable washer. It is great for use in our RV and traveling.
Thanks for your tip.
