SOURCE: Kenmore 80 series won't spin
If it agitates and drains. leaving your clothes clean but soaking wet. It is most likely the transmission/gearbox. the motor is working otherwise it would not agitate. it is stuck in agitate mode and cannot "shift" into spin mode. new transmission will cost 140-170 and takes 2 or so hours to replace depending on skill level. total repair cost parts+labor $300ish you may want to ante up for a new machine at this point. if you cant to the labor yourself.
part# should be this: tho double check using your own model#
Part # AP3096209

Door won't unlock
Did all of the water drain out of the washer during the spin? Select DRAIN & SPIN to remove any water remaining in the washer. The washer door will unlock at the end of the drain.
Is the door locked and is the "Add Garment" light on? Press START/PAUSE once. The door will unlock.

SOURCE: water will not drain from
You need to access drain pump and check drain hose at the back. There are also a couple of parts to be tested. For those you may want to call a technician.
The access to the drain filter should be located at the front bottom side of the appliance, behind a protective trim. In there you should find a cap that can be unscrewed to release water and remove blockage. Have a container ready to collect water. If there is no access in front, then access is at the back (uncommon).
If there is no blockage at pump, check the hose at the back. Ensure that the height of the hose elbow is respecting the specifications indicated in manual. Check that the top of drain hose is not lower than 30" (760 mm) . A wrongly placed hose will result in water going in the washer drain pump and tub, causing drain problems and no spin.
To start and complete drain part of the cycle, the electronic control checks the input from pressure switch (which detects water level) before advancing to spin part of the cycle.The pressure switch is a round shaped parts connected to a long rubber hose that goes inside the tub. The switch and hose must be cleaned or replaced. Pressure switch is located in the control assembly.Access the control panel and clean the hose attached to the pressure switch.
Also check the lid is closing well.If lid switch and drain lines are OK, replace the pressure switch, which is difficult to test (it is tested reading impedance with tub full and empty. Before replacing the switch, you can try cleaning it and blowing into the switch pipe. Check also motor before replacing the switch. The switch is connected to a long rubber hose and it is located in the control panel.
Below an article about the no spin problem. If the problem is coming with no drain, check drain filter, drain hose at the back. If they are OK, the pressure switch may need to be replaced or the pump may be defective.
Here the general troubleshooting for no spin: If you have no spin there may be different reasons behind the problem.
