  1. Hi miketoni85,
    The no noise part is the lack of a motor starting up. Depending on the model of the washer, this would indicate a timer or a control issue. If the motor is defective the motor would hum in some cases or it would make a clicking noise. Try to start the washer in the spin cycle and see if it will drain the water. If not I would recommend you contact Sears Home Services to get a technician out to troubleshoot the motor controls. Cut and paste this link, http://services.sears.com/shs/category/repair

      Miketoni85: Depending on the model number it could also have a faulty water level pressure switch or possibly a faulty lid switch.
