My Kenmore 80 Series washer won't drain the water. It will come on for the rinse cycle and then stop. I've tried moving it to a different cycle, but it's still not draining. How can I get the water to drain?

Is there a way to get it to drain the water before I fix it? I may not be able to fix it for a few days and I would hate for the water to sit that long.
