it sound like the motor coupling has broke,, you will need to take the pump off of the motor, then remove the motor,, the coupling isa three part piece, two little white three prong pieces, one on the motor and one on the transmission then the black rubber piece that connects them
You should have a three pronged washer, put that on first anyway round, then put the stop motion wheel on and tighten fineger tight, tighten the small screw that should be on the stop motion wheel and tighten a bit more, if it does not tighten up take the stop motion wheel off and put the three pronged washer in a different position.
You'll have to remove the starter from beneath the vehicle. There should be three wires that need to be disconnected, and three bolts that mount the opposite end of the starter motor to the drive wheel. Remove these three bolts and pull the starter away from the drive wheel and down to remove. You may see a plastic piece that covers one wire, just pull that out and undo the nut that secures the wire. Make sure you remember how to reinstall the wires-the rest of installation is reverse of removal.
OK The Kenmore 90 series mod.# 110.28912791 is not hard to work on. The problem on the washer was no agitation or spin.First I took the agitater out of the tub,and put them aside. Then I tilted the washer to get to the bottom of the washer. Inbetween the motor and I gueuss pump there are three pieces that need to be replaced called (motor coupler). I disconnected ac cord from wall outlet, the cold and hot water hoses. I disconnected the wires at the motor one piece and one two wire connection pluss move a small canister with two wires out of the way. Removed three bolts bottom of pump pulled pump and motor out, you have to turn back and forth a little and the whole assembly comes out. there are two screws that hold two clips at side of motor and motor come off easy. You will notice there is a black rubber disc with a plastic white three prong piece on each side. (Remove those pieces install same way ( you need to use something to hit the center of the plastic till it sets in, install black rubber piece six wholes three prongs on one side. Install second white pronged piece on the pump side and also hit center to set. Place pump over motor looking to (make sure) the top three prongs go inside three holes left in the black rubber piece. Once you line and they go inside line the motor to where the for rubber legs sat before put clips back on install the two screws, install shaft back in moving the motor side to side install the three bolts, hook wires plugs under the motor put canister with two wires back hook the two hoses back next to motor, stand washer back up, install agitater back, hook hot and cold hoses back plug back in and test. parts at sears (one hours time start to finish taking your time) keep track of all parts. Make diagram if you need to believe me it was easy and washer works great now. By the way when I took the parts off they did not look broken but were bad because now I have a working washing mashine.

If the wheel is rubbing on the housing obviously that's no good. Yes that is one solid piece, it needs replaced. Not an extremely difficult job, toughest part likely getting the wheel off the shaft. Sand exposed shaft and use some lubricant. Before removing motor mark on the housing where the wires are located/ direction they point. Do not forget to tighten set screw upon reassembly. Good Luck!!
