By what you have stated, it sounds like a lid switch failure. The lid switch has to be closed for the drain and spin cycle on your washer. If the lid switch is faulty, it will act as if the lid is not closed. On this model, make sure the lid hinge screws are tight. If the screws are loose, the hinge might not activate the lid switch.

A quick check you can do is to jump the lid switch and see if it will drain. If the washer operates, the lid switch needs to be replaced.

To jump the lid switch you need to unplug the washer and open the console. I have provided you with the instructions for opening the console below. Once you have the console open, locate the connector for the lid switch. Place an insulated jumper between the gray and tan wires. Not the green it is a ground and will cause a short. After inserting the jumper make sure it will not touch anything metal, plug the washer in. Start the washer in a drain cycle. If the washer drains and spins, you need to replace the lid switch. Do not leave the jumper in while you are waiting for the part. The jumper is only of the test.

To you replace the lid switch you have to remove the cabinet of the washer. The instructions for that are also in the image below. Once the cabinet is removed you can take the screws out securing the lid switch and remove the harness from the clips along the underside of the cabinet. Then reinstall the lid switch in the reverse order. Before you reassemble the cabinet, please read the instructions for installing the cabinet provided in the image.

I hope this is helpful. Please reply below if you need further assistance.

Have you tried unplugging the unit and waiting for a minute and then plug it back in. The load might have been off balance and caused that condition. Once it has been reset you might be able top end the cycle.

If there is no water in the unit:

Make sure that both valves at the water source(s) are turned on all the way and water enters.

Check for plugged or kinked inlet hoses or plugged screens in the inlet valves.

Verify inlet valve operation.

If there is water in the unit:

Verify drain pump operation.

Verify that the pressure switch hose is in good condition and properly connected to tub and pressure switch.

Verify there is not a siphon problem.

Press STOP twice to clear the display. The machine will drain for 3 minutes before unlocking the door.

Unplug washer or disconnect power.

Verify wire harness connections to inlet valves, pressure switch, drain pump and Central Control Unit (CCU).

Check all hoses for possible leaks.

Plug in washer or reconnect power

Verify pressure switch operation.

I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your washer if water will entering the machine and not siphon out.

Aren't microprocessor controlled appliances wonderful? Especially when the code is flawed! No wonder the space program bit the dust!

Sounds like you have some thing caught in the drum and/or drum bearing has give up the ghost---another thought is the drum brake is being applied while trying to spin--something could be out of sequence with timer and/or wires crossed/shorted causing functions at wrong time---can you spin it when it's off ?? the reason being you can't open the door while running is a safety factor--water doesn't run on floor--somebody getting arm caught in drum etc etc----do you have the operating manual--if so does it have trouble shooting section---to check this out while operating is a very very dangerous situation---this better left to a professional do to the machine being able to mutilate or dismember parts of you.

Hello Rickgall1998,
If t is a rear bearing (no symptoms listed) I doubt at 3 years old the bearing can be bad! I can't help you but if it is the door seal or some other common part perhaps you can find it here;
Kenmore Washing Machine Model 110 47532601 11047532601 110 47532601 Parts
Without some symptoms being listed it is hard to assist you.
Good Luck!
