Kenmore washing Machine 4450290

The washing machine, (serial cc4901093) is going through the wash cylces but doesn't engage in the rinse or spin cycles. You can turn the knob too the setting but it just humms and nothing happens. Same thing happens durring the wash cycle, it goes to where it is suppose to start spinning and or rinsing and just stops and produces a small buzzing/humming noise at the cycle selection knob.

Washing Machines will not rinse or spin

If the water won't drain out of your washing machine, either something is stuck in the drain hose or pump, or the pump is broken. Both fixes are simple if you're even just a little bit handy with tools. We're showing the repair on a Maytag washing machine.
What is wrong with a washer that does not spin?
If your washer fills with water but doesn't agitate, the problem is likely to be a faulty lid switch, a broken belt, or a problem with the motor. (Note: Direct-drivewashing machines do not have belts.) To diagnose the problem, do the following: 1Check the washing machine's spin cycle.

What causes a washing machine not to drain and spin?
If the washer won't drain there might be a clogged pump or hose. It's common for small socks or other small clothing items to get into the water drain system and clog the hose leading to the pump or the pump itself. Remove the hoses from the pump in order to remove the article of clothing.

Wont spin drum for wash cylce or rinse spin cycle

first off how old is this machine?
you could look to see if the door switch is being made up, most problems come from the switch not being made up, it tells the rest of the machine to perform the rest of the functions, try that and let me know.

I hear gravel noise when the machine changes cylces

The machine does a quick test to determine if the spline is engaged before spin commences. The way it works is the tub fills with water and floats for wash. When the pump removes the water for spin the spline don't always line up. So artificial intel will give it a slight test to see if the basket is locked. I have a bravos manual that shows how it works I know yours is an Oasis but I believe these are all basically the same. See page 23

Washing machine Series 80 Kenmore wont drain water after it's RINSE cylce including the motor. It's like the TIMER stopped after the RINSE CYCLE. I think it's the timer.

does it drain after the wash cycle? if it does, then I don't think it's the timer. It uses the same contact there as for the rinse cycle. Do you hear the motor running as if it's trying to drain? If the motor is running, perhaps the pump itself is no good? Just a couple things to check. Hope it helps.

Washing Machine is not draining in rinse cycle to go to spin cycl

you both seem to have bad lid switches. A bad lid switch will prevent draining and spinning.
