Probably drains though right? But does not spin or agitate? Sounds like your motor coupler is broken. You can get a tutorial and the par so you can fix it yourself here:

Clothes come out of washer wet


Most often you have a worn out belt that spins the drum when it is time to spin dry. Upend the machine and check the belt, if it has one.
A new drive belt should fix you right up.

Kenmore washer model #417.42042100 is not spinning the clothes all the way.


First you need to open the cabinet and remove the boot from the tub to the pump and clear the filter. Try that then run a cycle and post back the results.

Spin cycle is not getting clothes completely dry, can still hand ring water from clothing


When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these: Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning: If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine. Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component. Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician. Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess. Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

Spinning is out of balance even when there are no clothes in the washer


Most has a balance ring built onto to the tub, make sure thr balance ring is not damaged, It is normal for the tub to shake in the spin cycle with nothing in washer

Kenmore 80 series spins but won't ring out clothes


Check for buildup of detergent/foaming while washing. Check for oil leaks around the clutch area. Could also be the clutch lining is worn out. Replacement parts kit includes all parts
