When water is not drained completely, there are several possibilities of damage. The first is that the pump is stuck and / or not working properly. In that case you have to review it. Some have a cleaning gate, others have to be disassembled and verify their operation. The second may be that the external drain hose is connected to a drain tube higher than the washer, therefore the pump would not have the capacity and force to drive all the water. The third is that the pressure switch is not working well and therefore gives an erroneous signal that all the water has already been emptied.In that case to discard the pressure switch you must test it in the minimum filling and then put it to centrifuge to empty verifying that all the water comes out Water.

I do not know about a Kenmore but all the washing machines I have taken apart have a pressure switch located near the top just under the lid. as the water fills the machine it also fills a plastic pipe which is connected to the pressure switch.

Check if the "locked"or "door locked" light comes on. If it does not, you need to replace the wax motor in the door lock assembly and the machine control board, which is inside the control panel. The control board is expensive, so instead of buying the whole control board, if you're good in electronic repair and soldering, try checking ebay for the control board repair kit. Search for "MAYTAG NEPTUNE WASHER R11 Q6 REPAIR KIT". It has all instructions how to do the repair. Good luck!

If it fills with water and will not start agitating or the spin cycle check the safety switch on the lid, they vibrate loose and fall out

Spider arms attached to stainless steel drum inside of tub have probably broken. This is a known problem with Frigidaire front loading washing machines. The stainless steel drum has a 25 year warranty but this does not include the spider arms. You cannot buy the spider arms separately, you have to buy the unit as one. The drum cost about $250.00 and probably about $300.00 in labor to install. You can do it yourself but it is pretty involved. Good Luck!

washing machine or stove get it in the proper category but sad to say you will probably never find one

Probably a worn-out bearing; try rocking the empty drum by hand within the tub. If it is loose on the hub, discontinue use to avoid further serious damage, and get a service engineer to take a look.
