Kenmore washer not draining

Kenmore 110.92586210
It stopped pumping out at some point mid-cycle but kept adding water. Mercifully, it's in a basement. Turning the dial does nothing, and there are no pump noises or electric clicks at all. I've checked the lid switch for continuity, and I've checked the pump impeller housing for blockage. I've checked for power.

Is there another switch to test? Is there a way to test the pump motor? Given the 20+ years I don't expect much, I just hate to shop.

Thanks.

The lid switch splits at the seam. Put your hand under switch and pull up, it you feel switch body move it's bad.

The lid switch feels sold and the continuity test confirmed the lid opens and closes the circuit properly. What else would stop everything?

Problem solved and thank you. It was the lid switch! Despite passing a continuity test and feeling solid, when I jumped it at the console connection, everything worked. A posting from several years ago mentioned a closed switch having continuity but not working when under power.
