Question about Kenmore 22422 Top Load Washer
I have a Kenmore Series 70 top loading washing machine model number 110.20702990. It will not agitate or spin, I took the agitator off and all but one of the dog ears were broken but it did not fix the problem.
Coupler between the motor and gearcase is broken...Remove end caps and phillips screws from console. Pull console and flip up..Unplug lid switch and remove gold looking clips on both sides. (push screwdriver strait down and press away from you)..Pull cabinet towards you and remove. Pump is in middle of front by floor..Remove 2 clips with flat head and pull off. ( leave hoses on pump). Remove 2 1/4" screws and remove motor clips with flathead. Motor will fall so hold hand under it. Check plastic and rubber coupler between motor shaft and trans. I guarantee, its broken or worn out..

Hi, Remove the cap on the agitator and then remove the inside cover. There is a 7/16" bolt under the inside cover. Remove the bolt and the agitator will lift out. Seperate the 2 pieces of the agitator and replace the dogs. You might have to use a flat blade screw drive and punch out the 4 tabs around the bolt hole in the agitator if this applies.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

I recently had this problem. It was found that the main drive belt broke and the washer would fill but not spin, agitate or drain. I replaced the belt and everything worked again. A defective or disconnected cover switch would also cause the same problem.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.
It sounds as if your "Agitator Dogs" are damaged or broken. These are plastic pieces that allow the top agitator to turn only one way.
Please see the following for how to access and replace them if necessary.
1. Remove the fabric softener dispenser.
2. Using a short flat blade screwdriver, remove the cap.
3. You may see a 1/2" square plastic nut.
I've used a 1/2" extension for a socket set to remove the nut.
4. Pull the top agitator off and turn it over carefully.
You should see the agitator dogs (per the illustrations).
Replace them if necessary and re-mount the agitator, tighten the bolt carefully, put the cap and fabric softener dispenser back on and the top part of the agitator should only turn one way.

Fix it. Very easy fix and the part is not expensive. What you have is a direct drive motor. For ease of maintenance the machine is made in a way which makes it possible to service it in place without having to move it. You flip the controls up and pop the retaining clips in back, unplug the lid switch harness and tip the case towards you an out of the way. You can now access the pump, motor, and that pesky drive coupling. These do simply wear out but they usually will go if a comforter is washed in it or low water big load scenario.

You need to replace the Kenmore Washer Lid Switch. I had the same problem so being lazy I would just push down on the washer's lid and it would push the lid switch further down. making the water drain. after a while I just replaced the lid switch.
