Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle

4-yr old Kenmore front-load washer model # 417 44142400 stops at rinse cycle. Washer will fill wash and drain water, but rinse cycle not working. Washer stops at rinse cycle after draining wash water and tumbling a couple of times, and makes humming noise. Dial does not advance after this. Washer spins fine if you manually advance the dial to the spin cycle. Problem occurs on all wash/rinse/spin settings tried.

    My washer will not advance through each cycle. I keep having to press Start. I just replaced the main control board but the problem still exists. Intermittantly it will wash but once it gets to the spin cycle it stops.

When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!

Kenmore front loader. stopped at rinse. First ck to see if you washer works at different settings if so its very possible its your timmer or what called the wig wag or solonoid this switches the machine to spin & rinse. A basic service call should resolve your problem.

The pressure switch is failed - remove the tube from inside the top console area and blow it out. If you're lucky it will again work - with no charge.
