As you probably know if you replaced the drive motor yourself, this washer uses an inverter over that drive motor. That inverter has an LED light that will indicate the status of that component as shown in the second image below. The first image describes the status modes based on the LED light behavior.

I recommend that you carefully check the status of that inverter using that information first. That may lead to you the cause of your failure. The second image has additional information about a fuse for that inverter and the lid switch. The third image shows the wiring diagram for this washer. I provided a wiring diagram in the 4th image that traces the path for agitation. The 5th image shows how to reset an error code on that inverter. An error code must be reset before that motor will run after a problem is encountered by the drive motor system. This technical information may help you fix this washer problem. If you need more help, reply with additional details. NOTE: Viewing that LED on the motor inverter requires the washer front panel to be removed while the unit is plugged in. Use extreme caution when operating the washer with that front panel removed for testing. Do not make physical contact with any internal components during that testing. Unplug the washer when that testing is complete . Make sure that you unplug the washer and keep it unplugged when accessing internal components except during that test where you need to observe that motor inverter status light. I do not recommend that you perform any voltage checks on this washer at this time. If you need more help, reply with additional details based on the information provided and we will assist you further.

This can be a difficult failure to diagnose and repair. If you get to a point where you need to have a service technician examine and repair the washer, then you can schedule one through this link: Sears Home Services . If you need parts, you can order them from the Sears PartsDirect website. Be sure that you unplug the washer before accessing and replacing parts.
