Re: KENMORE ELITE SMART WASH QUIET PAK 4 FRONT LOADER,
Now this is a drain issue from the pump, clean out or check drain hose position to make sure hose isnt in water. Front loader right? kick panel under door has two screws, 1/4 or Torx T20 will remove them. You will see a clean out screw handle that holds junk. Use a trash bag wrapped around the clean out to catch water and debris..

Complete drain must occur before spin. A no drain situation would be an actual full pool of water seen in the bottom of the machine if all the cloths were removed, sounds like you are experiencing a spin enable switch failure, which mainly prevents final high speed spin leaving the cloths dripping wet. The spin enable switch contacts become tarnished/corroded over time resulting in poor connection. If the door lock light comes on than your door lock wax motor is working. The spin enable switch is the last switch to the right in the door lock unit where the light bulb is. Part# is 22002162. If there is an actual pool of water in the bottom of the machine as if you simply removed the cloths from the unit but left the wash water, than you should look first look to your drain pump for failure, or obstruction of foreign objects, or excess lint in the pump.

Check for stuck socks or something just under the door seal at the bottom of the drum. Check filter for blockage and all outlet pipes. Check the pressure switch hose for any holes as it may have rubbed on the drum and created a small hole in it. Make sure flow meter is level and not at any angle.
Check for drain blockage, check position of the drain hose and check the pressure switch.
the drain filter and look for drain blockage. With Zanussi front loaders this located in front at the
bottom right hand corner, there is an access door in there.Open the door, unscrew the cap and use a container to collect the water. Disconnect power before starting maintenance.
the position of the drain hose. Make sure that the height of the hose elbow is as specified
in the manual or you get siphoning (water getting back from drain hose inside the tub) and drain does not end. 3)The machine has a
switch. It is a sensor connected to a long thin rubber hose. The
pressure switch is located in control assembly. Clean pressure hose and switch.
One way to test the pressure switch is by blowing into the switch, but
manufacturers say this must not be done as you can damage a good switch. The
pressure switch is difficult to test in full. Testing is done either
reading voltages while machine is cycling or reading Ohms at the switch
with tub empty and full. For safety reasons I suggest users to avoid
performing tests or maintenance that must be done with power on.
There's an auxiliary switch in the door lock.switch assembly that is activated at the end of the wash cycle for the machine to advance to the spin cycle. The machine will NEVER advance to the spin cycle unless the auxiliary switch is activated as a safety feature to prevent the door from opening during a high-speed spin cycle that may result in physical injury. The drum tumbles back and forth while the machine control checks the auxiliary if activated but since it's not, the control will not command the motor speed control to spin the drum at high speed. These symptoms may indicate a faulty door lock/switch assembly and may need replacement.
