The washer fills and drains but dosen't agitate or spin. I flipped over to have a look at the underside after disconnecting and unplugging and there is a white plastic seating the looks to be shredded. Pictures would help greatly, any ideas?

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.
The electric motor my have failed or a part called a capacitor could be the problem?
The capacitor is part of the starting circuit of the electric motor, if this fails the motor will not start therefore the washing machine won't spin or agitate.
all that is wrong is the lid switch is bad,remove the 2 head screws one on each side,flip the head up,you will see the lid switch jack on the washer top,unplug it clip the two outside wires and wire them together(unplug the washer first before you start this)now plug the jack back in,you have now by passed the lid switch and your good to go,let me know how you do-mike
if it wont stop filling, then the pressure switch is either defective, or the hose that is attached to the drum to the pressure switch was either pulled out or had an opening either it breaks or it cracks.
that would not transfer the filling mode to agitate mode.
the second problem that it wont drain and spin now is another issue but might be resolve if you solve the first problem.
You most likely have a broken coupler between the motor and gearcase.
You can buy the part for about $10 or have someone come out and replace it for about $150-200.
If you will post the complete model number from the the washer so I can see which style cabinet you have, I will try to walk you through the repair. It isn't very complicated if you are handy with home repairs.
With the age of the machine it probably just needs a coupler, but it could also have a problem in the transmission or basket drive that has caused the failure.
i have a kenmore 70 series washer model 10020722990
it will fill with water but will not wash. if you put it on spin the water will drain but it will not spin. it sounds like the motor turning. is it a clutch that has broken.
