Sounds like you have a bad lid switch. When you open then close the lid you should hear a click. if there is no click you have a bad lid switch. on the lid itself you will see a plunger when the lid is closed it plunges the switch if there is an empty hole where the frame of the cabinet is there's your problem BINGO Lid switch

Kenmore washer won rinse waer out model 22622100 any suggestions?

See the Sears parts site for your washer:!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=110.22622100&pathTaken=partSearch

I'm assuming that it won't drain. Will it spin????

If it will neither drain NOR spin. I'd check the Lid Switch:

Newer model Whirlpool / Kenmore washers use a Lid Switch as a safety device. Unless the switch senses that the lid on the washer is closed, the washer will neither agitate nor spin.

Older models only used the switch during the spin cycle.

Try to bypass the Lid Switch by removing the Console and jumping the two outermost pins on the switch.

This is a Whirlpool PDF on how these washers operate. It has a diagram on jumping the switch as well as a detailed section on how the transmission works.$FILE/L-55.pdf

It also has a troubleshooting guide.

To bypass the switch, you only have to disconnect the power to the washer, tilt the console back, unplug the switch and using an short piece of insulated wire, jump the two outermost contacts on the connector coming from the console and plug the washer back in.

Following is a description of how to gain access to the console and how to remove the cabinet if necessary.

With the jumper in place, try to re-start the washer.

If it works, the Lid Switch is a relatively inexpensive part and only requires you to access the console and remove the cabinet.

If it WILL spin but simply won't drain. I'd pull the cabinet (See above) and check the pump and hoses for any blockage.

My Kenmore 22622 washer won't drain. What should

That has to be a bad lid switch. Flip the controls up wards so you can unplug the lid switch from the harness and see if it has continuity. If it is bad follow the directions HERE

the pump sounds like it blocked or the drain hose is in to tight and causing an anti-siphon

Lent on clothes

Not familiar with this model but it sounds like too little water is being used (small, medium, large load) or a rinse cycle is being skipped.
With enough water and normal rinse cycles, the lint should be suspended and pumped down the drain. If this is happening with every load, then it isn't working properly.
