There is a pressure switch that inhibits the machine from doing something stupid like spinning with a load of water in it.

Quick test is to blow hard down the outlet pipe, put a tissue around it to protect you mouth

If you hear air bubbles inside that machine it meand there is not a major blockage.

If there is a blockage such as a sock or underwear then the hoses need to come off to clear it

Take out the filter and see if there is a coin or a hairpin or similar holding back the impeller of the pump.

If you can reach the impeller with your finger see if you can turn it (Or use a skewer)

If air goes through and the impeller turns then it is either the programmer or the pump coil.

To fix that you need a test meter and some knowledge

On kenmore, which is made by whirlpool, there is a couple of coils attached to a bracket this is called a wig-wag.
they are located underneath the tub. when these coils engage they move a couple of bars, thus selecting agitate, spin, ect. It sounds like one of the coils is not working. Check them for power and continuity, and then go from there.

SOURCE: 90 Series Kenmore Washer Not going to spin cycle not draining water

If the unit is still agitating as it is supposed to, this is usually due to a faulty lid switch.

SOURCE: Washer won't drain

The symptoms you describe are typical of a lid switch failure. When a lid switch fails, the washer will fill, but stop at the spin cycle and will not drain. Sometimes it will fill, then stop. The switch is located under the washer top cabinet on the right hand side and is activated by a small plastic piece on the lid (called a "lid strike") through an opening along the right hand side of the casing next to the wash tub opening. First, make sure the lid strike is still intact on the lid. Next, open and close the lid and listen for a "clicking" sound. This is an indication that the lid strike is at least making contact with the switch. Then, check the two screws along the right side of the wash tub opening that hold the lid switch in place. Sometimes the screws come loose or fall out causing the switch to fail to contact the lid strike. In many cases, all that is required is to tighten these screws to realign the switch with the lid strike. If all these preliminary checks fail, the lid switch should eb replaced. The following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385198-replacing_lid_switch

If you require parts, go to searspartsdirect.com and type in the model number you provided. The lid switch will be listed under the "Top and Cabinet" heading as item number 11. The lid strike is listed as item number 20.

Some other sites to view are repairclinic.com and appliancepartspros.com. Sometimes these sites offer better pricing on parts.

If you have questions, or if the diagnosis is incorrect, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: If the wash tub is full, you DO NOT have to empty to complete this repair. Once a defective switch is replaced, the washer will spin out and drain on its own.

The lid switch is bad . You can either replace it , or bypass it under the control panel . Try putting a pencil down into the hole on the top where the lid actuator goes into to see if it drains and spins .

Washer agitates, drains OK, but spin doesn't start


Timer is defective. Your unit has a netural drain. When finished agitating, the shuts down and then starts up reversing to drain and spin. On the initial reverse start, the water drains without the transmission spinning. After a timed period 3-4 minutes, the timer is supposed to pause, stopping the motor for a few seconds. When the motor stops again, the transmission shift to the spin cycle and when the timer resumes power tothe motor it should spin. You are doing the same thing when you lift the lid...stopping the timer and then the tranny shifts and when you set the lid down, the washer spins. Replace the timer.......

Water won't drain


This is usually caused by the lid safety switch. When the switch malfunctions, The washer believes the lid is open and the washer will not spin or empty. The switch is intended to prevent injury during the spin cycle. The timer could be bad but it is usually the switch..

You most likely have a broken coupler between the motor and gearcase.
You can buy the part for about $10 or have someone come out and replace it for about $150-200.
If you will post the complete model number from the the washer so I can see which style cabinet you have, I will try to walk you through the repair. It isn't very complicated if you are handy with home repairs.
With the age of the machine it probably just needs a coupler, but it could also have a problem in the transmission or basket drive that has caused the failure.
