You're switching to APP mode too late.
ALT HOLD stays on in APP mode until glide slope intercept. As you're only turning on APP after glideslope intercept it never triggers that.
Same likely with LNAV, AFAIK it's triggered by localiser intercept.
I wish I were flying

Soon as you've turned within 30º (that's to intercept) of the rwy hdg you then select APP... and it all goes from there  Smile
