Kenmore Elite MOD 110 20992991-will fill and won't advance

I tried on/off several times and rotating the knob to several places, especially rinse, but it only hums.
I've read several points of interest on this formum and I think I'm down to:
Bad Pressure Switch
Is there any tips for me to really narrow it down?

The hum is coming from the bottom of the washer for sure.
I'm about to drain it with a sump, slide it out and see if I can see anything in the pump.

Maybe I can rule out the lid switch?(with the lid closed, I turned the know to spin, it hums. When I open the lid the humming stops)
I'm draining the Tub with a small sump now, so that I can pull it out and examin the electrical components and tranny.

I emptied the tub, rolled the washer on its side and removed the cardborad base so I could view the motor, pump, etc.
I removed the large inlet hose from the tub and found the tail end of piece of cloth. Manually spinning the drive coupler with my thumb and pulling the cloth at the same time yielded the root cause to my problem. The cloth had the pump under wraps ó¿ó
Hooked everything up for a test run, Everything works fine.
Thanks you so much! I owe you one.
