Have an old Kenmore 417.99812990. It has been leaking intermittently for some time, today i noticed it went into spin cycle but pump did not kick in to drain so the washer spun the water out. (fool me once, i have water alarms to let me know immediately when this happens) That said, i changed it to "extra rinse" cycle and it began to spin and then the pump kicked in to drain. Could it be the switch or the control board? Thanks in advance for the input.

Sounds like the timer. Check for 120 VAC at the pump. If the pump is leaking that might cause it to work intermittently. Take the washer timer out and remove the blue plastic cover around the timer and look for any burned points.
