Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
The board located at the bottom of the machine is a motor control unit. The board is a module that controls volts to the variable speed motor.This is tested in full reading voltages to motor. This board is often indicated as MCU, while the main control unit is called CCU.
Before going for MCU or CCU you need to check the drain system and the pressure switch. Both parts determine the end of the cycle once the cycle is complete.
Blow in the pressure switch tube, and eventually replace it, as the part is inexpensive but difficult to test (it is tested in full by reading Ohms while tub is full).
If drain is OK, a definitive test will be done reading volts at CCU and MCU. For safety reasons, tests with power on must be done by a trained technician.

There is a control board behind the timer assembly.If timer checks ok then check the control board.Because as you mentioned that it finishes the spin cycle for the permanent press and hand washable options so the motor is not the issue.But board can be the issue if timer is checked ok.Because the board gives command to timer to start and run.

Hello jamespeattie - Does the washer making a humming noise? If so, either the drain hose may be kinked or the drain in the house is clogged. Once you have confirmed and cleaned the hose and if issue continues contact a professional to move forward accurately. The unit may possibly have a faulty pump or control board.
