Washer fills with water but doesn't agitate.

I have a Kenmore 500 series. The water fills and then nothing. I have filled the machine (with no clothes) and the water fills according to size but then nothing happens. I moved the switch to the rinse cycle and nothing happens. I move the switch to the spin cycle and it works, it releases the water and it starts to spin and goes through the motion. Any ideas?

I have the same model washer and it too is having a similar problem.
It will fill with water and then hum. Move it to any other location on the dial and it just hums. I've tested the lid switch and the water level switch. I need to figure out how to test the timer and the motor.

So does does the expert have any idea what was wrong? My washer with the same model number is doing the same thing.

The model number is 110.29522800. Once the machine fills with water in the wash and rinse cycle it starts making a humming sound and doesn't do anything. I can turn the agitator by hand to the left and right. Again, once I switch to spin cycle it goes through the cycle properly.
