Whirlpool Ultimate Care II will not drain
My washer works normally when started at the Super Wash, Heavy, Regular and Light cycles. Once it reaches just before the Rinse Cycle, it stops working. When I move the dial to any other settings aside from what was mentioned above, I get a quiet buzzing sound. It agitates just fine, but it will not drain the water and continue on to the Rinse and Spin Cycles.

thank you for submitting a question to manage my life.
i am sorry you are having problems with your washer.
from your description most likely your drain pump is clogged or blocked. i have included this video that demonstrates how to gain access to the drain pump; video . always unplug or de-energize electrical equipment before removing covers or attempting service. be careful and wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts. if your washer is full of water i recommend that you bail as much out as you can. check the pump and drain hoses for clogs and make sure the pump is not jammed.
here is a link that you may use to purchase the drain pump .
if you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a sears technician. here is a link for the website: sears home services .
i hope this is helpful. check the things i have covered here and if i may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.
