Question about Kenmore 3.2 cu. ft. Plus Top Load Washer
You are probably hearing the balance ring. It's supposed to sound like that. If your clothes are still spinning out nicely, all is as it should be. No worries.

I would look at the water inlet valve. Sometimes if one of the solenoids is defective it can let some water leak back into the tub if it isn't closing completely. It's not that the water isn't draining completely, it's that additional water is being allowed in. This is a common reason for water being found in the tub after spinning. The solenoids can be checked for continuity using a multimeter. No continuity would indicate a faulty solenoid. See the photo for reference. Hope this helped and best wishes.

SOURCE: Low water level
It depends on how old the machine is, the newer machines by law,take in way less water but still wash ok. TIP.try it with out load and check water level Ire bye

Unblock the outflow pipe from the machine that goes into the sump under the sink. (have a pot ready for water overflow) This will help drain the water. If the spin cycle is making a screetching sort of noise then it is possible that the carbon brushes will need changing. This affects the spinning if the brushes are worn.

I had the exact same problem. The problem is that your fabric softener dispenser is clogged up with a lot of dried, sticky fabric softener. The flooding comes from the part of the cycle when water that is to be flushed through the fabric softener dispenser can't drain properly so it spills into the bleach dispenser and onto the top and into the lid gasket as well.
To remove the dispenser for cleaning, you need to open the top of the washer. (First pull it away from the wall.) Carefully pry off the little emblem in the front center of the washer lid. Then remove the screw. Then slide the top forward to you about a 1/2 inch and prop it up carefully.
You then need to remove both hoses that are attached to the bleach and fabric softener dispenser (part of the same unit). Then unsnap the combined unit from the washer top. Then clean all the gunk out by running it under scalding hot water in the laundry tub and swirling the gunk out. Don't attampt to remove the blue round fabric dispenser part from the unit.
Put it all back together and you're good until you clog it up again with too much fabric softener; maybe several years again.
