Probably has a bad motor coupler between motor and transmission. Remove 2 screws in front or in back of console on ends. Shake console back and forth while pulling up. It will raise up in front and pivot back. Disconnect plug for lid switch on washer top. Remove 2 gold colored clips with flat blade screwdriver. Make note of how they go in first. Open lid and grab washer cabinet and pull forward, lifting washer cabinet off frame. Remove pump with 2 clips. Remove 2 screws holding motor clips. Remove clips. Remove motor. Look for broken fingers on coupler. Should have 3 on motor and transmission parts of coupler. If not, replace coupler. Very common part.
When re-assembling, tilt back cabinet and put front edge under frame. Then lower cabinet to base. Make sure sides are in frame. Install clips by hitting down with palm of hand. Install connector. Lower and install console screws.

the buzzing noise is the pump trying to work, but it cannot due to a blockage. unplug the washer and you can lean the washer backwards and remove the pump to unblock. the fill error is probably unrelated, and is an inlet valve issue.

Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle

When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!

Check the lid switch. Some units use a safety lock out. If it is not working then the unit will not drain or spin.
