Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
This symptom is pointing to a broken drive coupling. A coupling is used in place of a belt but serves a similar purpose. The drive coupling is a part that cost about $20.00 and can be replaced with a bit of mechanical ability. If you want to replace it yourself let me know and I will walk you through the process, it takes about an hour if you have not done one before.

1 of 2 things could be the trouble.
Does the washer drain properly if you manually turn the control knob? If not then this sounds like your pump is either plugged with possible lint and can't move or has died completely. 99% chance pump is the problem and 99% chance it can be an easy fix by cleaning the pump where the Drain Line is attached, worst case scenario pump is to be replaced, but not a overall expensive fix and most can do it without a technician.
Second problem is possibly the time itself, but if the washer is going through all cycles except spin then pump is likely the culprit, cause in spin cycle the machine has to drain the water from the unit as it spins, if it cannot the washing machine basically stops and cannot complete the cycle.
One way to tell for sure if the pump is the problem. When the machine enters the spin cycle and starts making that noise. Manually turn the dial a little bit till it passes the spin cycle, if it continues to wash till it hits the final spin/drain cycle then stops again...your pump is in need of help.
Please get back to us if you have further query or else please accept the solution.
