Kenmore 70 series wont spin or agitate

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?

Kenmore series 70 washer will only fill with water.


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.

Series 70 fills wit water stops then makes a slight buzzing sound


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.

Kenmore 70 series washer


to answer your first problem,

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.

tnx 4 using fixya,

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.
