Your problem may not be a belt some Whirlpool built Kenmore washers are direct drive and have a coupler instead of a belt. The coupler is located on top of the motor. It consists of three parts two with prongs and one with holes for each of the prongs. If this is broken or badly worn the washer will not agitate or spin. Good luck. Oh the drive coupler part number is 285753A.

Why agitator not trning in kenmore washing machine?


If the spin cycle works, but the unit only fails to aggitate......the problem is most likely a clutch or transmission problem. If the unit neither spins or aggitates, you could have a broken belt or even a defective lid switch. Sometimes a model will have broken dogs, or cogs in the aggitator base. To check this, with the machine off..reach into the machine tub..grab the aggitaror and try to turn it manually by hand. If you can turn it and also feel a sensation such as a gear slipping or teeth not properly taking hold or meshing, the cogs or dogs may need to be replaced that are under the aggitator itself.

My washer will not pump out water or spin . it will fill, and aggitate. drain hose is not kinked


If your washer does not drain you need to check this parts.
  1. Inspect the drain hose for kinks
  2. Test the timer control
  3. Test the lid switch(some models)
  4. Inspect the water pump
  5. Inspect the drive belt(belt drive only)
  6. Inspect the motor coupler
If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess. If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.

No aggitator movement


Set the timer for final spin and turn it on.
Does it pump out the water?
If the answer is yes, it pumps out water use this video to replace the direct drive coupling.

Kenmore series 70 washer won't stop agitating when lid Is lifted.


I have a Series 80 and when I lift the lid it does not stop aggitating when in wash mode. When I lift the lid it does stop spinning when in rinse mode. As designed.

To stop wash-mode aggitation at lid-lift, using the existing lid switch and other electrical components, is not easy and not recommended. I can think of a way to do it (triple-pole lid switch) but I will not detail the idea .. for safety concerns.

To stop aggitation, simply use the main settings dial control. You'll save money and possibly prevent a fire hazard!
