Hi Fred, or anyone who can help. I was researching this question and found your answer from 2009, but I need help here in 2015 with the model 796.4118.

So far, as of 2018, nobody has an answer for this and Kenmore doesn't care. If they did, they would come up with a software update. Here's a perfect example of stupidity. With manual buttons and dials, you could configure basically any combination you wanted. Now with electronic controls, you have NO overrides. It's their way or no way. These are the engineers that our top colleges are putting out today. Privileged children who have never done a load of wash in their lives, so they see no reason for a spin only cycle.

For most Kenmore washers beginning with model number 796. and most LG washers:

The Drain & Spin Cycle:
(1) Press the POWER button to turn ON the washer.
(2) Press the SPIN SPEED button to select the desired spin speed. For drain only, select the NO SPIN option.
(3) Press the START/PAUSE button. The water will drain and the clothes will tumble before the spin routine begins.
