this sounds like the direct drive coupling between the motor and transmission. very common problem and not very expensive. look under the machine and and between the motor and transmission you will see a round rubber coupling and 2 plastic pieces one on either side; they all connect together to mate the motor and trans without a belt.

SOURCE: Kenmore 80 series won't spin
If it agitates and drains. leaving your clothes clean but soaking wet. It is most likely the transmission/gearbox. the motor is working otherwise it would not agitate. it is stuck in agitate mode and cannot "shift" into spin mode. new transmission will cost 140-170 and takes 2 or so hours to replace depending on skill level. total repair cost parts+labor $300ish you may want to ante up for a new machine at this point. if you cant to the labor yourself.
part# should be this: tho double check using your own model#

How to replace Whirlpool/Kenmore washer
dual action agitator ratchet ‘dogs’, kit # 285770
Tools needed: Screwdriver, 3/8" drive ratchet wrench, 7/16" socket (older models), 3/8" drive to 1/2" adapter (newer models), long 3/8" drive extension, small amt liquid detergent
1) Pry the agitator cap off by inserting a screwdriver into the cap’s notch
2) Pull the inner cap (if present) off – most Whirlpool machines use this inner cap, with a handle, to gain access to the center bolt
3) Remove the bolt in the center of the agitator
(Earlier models used a 7/16" hex-head steel bolt)
(Recent models use a 1/2" square drive plastic nut – use a 3/8" X 1/2" ratchet adapter)
4) On older models, grasp the bottom portion of the agitator and pull the entire ***’y off.
(Recent models allow just the top portion’s removal to access these ‘dogs’)
5) Older models – place the agitator on the floor, and, standing carefully on the bottom portion, pull the top half off. Turn it over, and the dogs will be accessible for replacement.
6) Newer model dogs can be replaced once the ratchet ***’y is removed. There are several versions currently in use, but most can be replaced without removing the bottom agitator half. All‘4-dog’versions use the 285770 kit, regardless of the cam ***’y style. (Older agitators, rarely seen now, used a pair of 2 larger dogs, which are a different part number)
7) On older versions, be careful to align the two tabs when inserting the upper ***’y back onto the agitator bottom half. When these are aligned, they will friction-fit the two halves together, making it easier to reinstall the ***’y. Handle it only by the bottom half to prevent pulling the top half off when reinstalling.
8) Lightly lubricate the agitator cap’s rubber gasket using a bit of dishwasher detergent, and push it back into place. (On the Whirlpools with an inner cap, lube that cap’s o-ring too – makes it easier to snap into place)
9) Reach around and pat yourself on the back! You just saved at least $75.00!

How do you remove the top of a kenmore washing machine? I have a mouse stuck in the lid and can not get the top off.

You have a bad selector switch. It's the one that you use to set the size of the wash load. It turns the water valve on and allows the machine to fill to the level of water you have selected. When it goes bad, it will not open to tell the water valve to turn off once the water level has been reached that you have selected. This is why it's over flowing. You can change the switch with little effort. What you will need to do is take the plastic covers off of each end of the console. To remove, pull forward on the top to un-clip. Once you have removed both end caps, take the screw out of each end that you will see once the covers are removed. Now pull the whole panel toward you and lift it up. It will pivot over the back of the machine. Now you will see the back of the console where you can remove the bad switch. You can find the switch anywhere that sales appliance parts. One on the web is www.partselect.com I have found that they have the best price on most parts. Just enter you complete model number and it will bring up a blow up of your machine where you will be able to find the part and also order it with a credit card. Good luck and have a great day.
