Perfect answer from Flyingtarzan.  I just fixed this problem myself and sure enough I had a broken drive coupling.  About 30mins to repair.

I just replaced the transmission on my Kenmore 80. No agitation


your motor turns one way for the spin cycle and the other way for agitate. remove the coupler and test it that way.

The washer fills and empties but no spin or agitate


I assume by empties you mean it pumps the water out.
That being the case you will need a way to make sure the timer is sending power to the motor. If it is emptying by itself then you have a siphon problem and need to raise the drain hose exit above the top of the washer or install a siphon break.

Kitchenaid Washer Model #KAWS700JQ4


Washer has a motor coupler linking motor to transmission. If this motor coupler is broken or has rounded out where it engages the motor and/or transmission gear it will only fill and drain. You can view this coupler by leaning washer back against the wall & looking underneath with a flashlight. There may be a sound dampener panel on the bottom that you have to remove to see it. It is two pieces of white plastic with a rubber grommet in the middle.
