Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
I do not know about a Kenmore but all the washing machines I have taken apart have a pressure switch located near the top just under the lid. as the water fills the machine it also fills a plastic pipe which is connected to the pressure switch.

the drain pipe in the wall needs to be as tall as the cabnet of the washer. if it is the see how much hose is going into the drain pipe. should only be about 9 to 12 inches into the pipe. any more than that will cause a syphon and suck the water out as it fills

I recently had this problem. It was found that the main drive belt broke and the washer would fill but not spin, agitate or drain. I replaced the belt and everything worked again. A defective or disconnected cover switch would also cause the same problem.

You need a new timer. The clicking sound is the timer knob going and your washer not "agitating" is the result of the timer knob not sending the signal to the rest of the machine.

there is a vacuum hose hooked to your water level adjuster. If that hose falls off, which it sometimes does because there is no hose clamp, the washing machine will not know how high the water is and will continue to fill. I found this out after starting my wash before bed and waking up at 6:00 to ankle deep puddles all over my house.
the fix: open the gauge panel by taking off the plastic covers on each side and unscrewing the bolts under the covers (one per side) then the gauge panel will rotate up and allow you access to the hose and other gauges
if the hose is still clamped on check for holes in it and if no holes then you may want to replace the leveler guage
