My Kenmore washer 20722990 70 series washes, and then rinses, but then it will when it comes time to drain and spin, it does nothing. The water remains in the tub. I have set it to rinse several times, and when it comes time, the rinse stops, and I hear two clicks and then nothing (supposedly when the water is supposed to drain?).

Please help!?!?!

** Kenmore washer [model] 20722990 **

The complete model number looks to be 110.20722990 making it a Whirlpool built 'direct drive' washer design.

** when it comes time to drain and spin, it does nothing. **

The motor doesn't operate but does the timer still count down to the end or does it stick right at that point and never move further?

If the timer also does not advance from that point in the cycle, there may be a problem with the washer's lid switch (see the following links) which is designed to stop washer operation at that point as a safety precaution if not engaged.

I bought the exact same washer 9 years ago and it started doing the exact same thing yours is doing yesterday. Glad you inquired. I'll be looking for answers too.
