Kenmore model 22432100 - it won't drain or spin

Any idea what's causing this machine to not release the water once the rinse cycle is complete? It makes a buzzing sound only without releasing the water and when I try to manually set-it up to spin, it won't spin or do anything? If I reset it manually to washing or rinsing, it will wash and rinse or I can add water. But then once the washing or rinsing is complete when the machine is supposed to get rid of the water and move into spinning, it makes a faint buzzing noise and it just stops.

    The locking mechanism on the lid won't hold so the spin cycle can start. I can read in and hold the button on the machine but it's rather time consuming and painful to my hand.

Kenmore model 22432100 wont spinn or release the water


Check if there is drain blockage. That will result in cycle not advancing to spin. To check drain system, check first the drain hose at the back and then access the hose connected to the drain pump. The drain pump is accessed from the bottom of the appliance. Disconnect power first.

If there is no drain problem, check pressure switch and lid switch.
