CANT DRAIN OR SPIN WATER OUT OF MY WASHER

I HAVE A CATALYST KENMORE ELITE WASHING MACHINE. (HEAVY DUTY, KINGSIZE CAPACITY, ULTRA QUIET PAK,3 SPEED MOTOR WITH 6 SPEED COMBONATION).
MY PROBLEM IS THAT I STARTED A LOAD AND AFTER IT FILLED UP I REALIZED IT WAS ON A CYCLE A DID NOT WANT, SO I CHANGED THE CYCLE. THAT DIDNT WORK, SO I THEN WANTED TO JUST SPIN AND DRAIN THE WATER OUT AND I CANT.

I NEED TO KNOW IF THERES A CYCLE THAT WILL JUST SPIN AND DRAIN THE WATER OUT SO I CAN START OVER??

THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP IN ADVANCE.
IM STUCK WITH A FULL WASHING MACHINE .

My washer will not spin or drain the water out. I can empty the water with the hose, but it will not drain on its own. the machine will not go through the spin cycle either. What is wrong? Can I replace a part myself?

have you tried lower spin speeds? I found with heavy items such as towels and jeans it is best to lower the spin speed. also washing like heavy items on a certain wash cycle is best - i.e. towels on bluky/bedding.

hope that helps.

CANT DRAIN OR SPIN WATER OUT OF MY WASHER


Set it toward the end of any cycle - it will sense the water level and pump it out before moving on.
