If the washer fills up with water and you hear the motor running but the agitator doesn’t move, the agitator coupling is the most likely problem. First pump the water out by turning the timer to spin. Once the water is out, turn the washer off. Now pull up on the agitator until it comes off (it may be hard to pull off). Now that the agitator is off, you can see the agitator coupling, reach down and try to turn the coupling. If the coupling turns freely, it is striped out and needs to be replaced.

Why is the timer is longer than it used to be. each load is about 20 minutes longer


Old washers used a large amount of water and detergent with a agitator scrubbing your clothes. Newer washers use a third of the water and soap as your clothes "flop" over and thru the detergent solution. So you need more time to wash. Also the spinning and rinsing are different. The speed of spin is twice as fast as the older standard washers were, to extract most of the water.

Kenmore Washing Machine won't agitate, spin, or drain


It sounds like the motor needs to be replaced, you can drain the water by taking the drain hose from the drain and lowering down water will drain.

Kenmore washer 80 series 110 model not spinning.


unless your washer is over 20 years old, then it wont have a belt. the temperature of the water wont have anything to do with it spinning or not.
need to know if it agitates or drains and just wont spin.
if it agitates but no spin or drain, then you have a bad lid switch.
if it wont agitate or spin, but will drain, then you have a broken drive coupling.
