Question about Kenmore HE2 Plus Front Load Washer
It doesn't drains or spin
If it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:
If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.
If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Please check the following
Does the water pump out if not then lay the drain hose down into a bucket so that it does (The timer needs to be told that there is little or no water left inside the machine before it will do a spin cycle)
If the pump is working
Take the back off and look for the pressure switch it looks like a small flying saucer will be near the top of the machine, It will be connected to the bottom of the outer container via a small plastic or rubber tube.
Take the tube off at the lower end and blow into the pipe the pressure switch should click as you blow and then again when you remove the pressure.
If it clicks ok, try doing a spin on its own if that does not work you need to check the motor brushes to see if they are sticking.
If the brushes are free you are back to the main programmer
