Its easy to check the coupler, i would do that first to make sure then if its ok , well clutch. Kenmores, a.k.a. whirlpool's , are very common to have both problems. Just remove da pump and hoses, then remove the motor and check the coupler.

do you actually see the motor spinning? or think you hear it, check the belt hasn't come off, or gone slack, it needs to be fairly tight but not too tight, if the belt and pulley go round but the drum doesn't then you have serious damage and need a new inner drum hope i have helped and if i can help more get back to me, i am an appliance engineer of 20 years

The noise, is it a grinding noisy like worn bearings?
put the washer on drain only - is the pump working ok, take the filter out to see if it is turning ok, does that make a strange noise?
If the pump is fine, its back to that noise, it could be be a faulty tacho on the motor ( regulates the spin speed) or motor bearings - has the motor spindle a lot of play on it?
Let me know how you get on and good look!
