Kenmore Washer 70 Series - sheets stuck around agitator

Today when doing laundry, bed sheets got stuck around the agitator. When we came back some time later we can smell a burning plastic smell. Sheets were entangled around agitator with tub full of soapy water. I managed to get get the sheets out, but now the washer won't advance to a spin cycle to drain the tub. Is there an internal fuse that is blown? Not sure if its worth fixing or just to buy a new more efficient model.

    Thanks. For some strange reason after I cycled the circuit breaker, the washer started working. Your suggestion was going to be my next attempt after I manually drained the water from the tub.

The transmission probably stripped the worm gear that drives the drum - you would have to crack it open and take a peek.

Laundry is trapped under the base of the agitator.


Im not very familiar with that type of top loadign washer,,, but on most agitators there is a bolt that runs down the center of the agitator, connecting it to the transmission/gearbox. Usually there is a cap, or softner dispenser that can be pulled off, revealing this bolt.
