That would be your lid switch that has went bad. Remove the console caps, then remove the two screws that hold it down (sometimes these screws are in the rear of the console) Rotate the console out towards you gently, then fold it up and over the top of the unit. You see 2 gold colored hold down clamps on top, and either side of the unit. You will also see a wire and disconnect going down through the cabinet on your right hand side. Disconnect these wires (be sure unit is unplugged) and rotate the whole cabinet towards you. You remove the two screws that hold the switch in place and a 5/16" screw underneith that holds the ground wire. Unclip the connector from the rear top of the cabinet and remove the switch. Be sure to bring your whole model number 110.************** when you get the new part, there are two of these, and they look the same except the wire ends are different. Good luck Jim

If it is draining then the motor is turning the pump so it is ok.
This washer has no belt so that is not the problem.
Remove the cabinet and bypass the lid switch wires and put into a spin. Watch the clutch to see if it is turning. If the clutch housing is not turning and you know for sure the coupler is not broken then you need a new transmission. If the clutch housing is turning but the basket is not spinning you have something binding the basket or you need a new basket drive and clutch.
If you have only looked at the coupler from underneath you may not be able to tell if it is broken in the center. If it is broken again your transmission is not staying in neutral drain until the water is drained. That means it is going into spin with full load of clothes and water. This puts a lot of pressure on the coupler and causes them to fail prematurely. If this is the case you will need a new transmission.
Post back if you have any questions.

Same problem (but without any smell). You should try to reset the two computer boards in the washer. You do this by 1) unplugging machine and wait for 30 secs; 2) plug in machine; and 3) open and fully close the lid at least 5 times. This resets computer boards, which can get messed up by power surges, etc.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer.
The Kenmore / Whirlpool top load uses a reversing motor to initiate the pump for draining and the transmission to spin.
If you cannot hear the motor trying to turn the pump, (but the washer will agitate) the problem points to the Timer, or the Lid Switch.
Try to bypass the Lid Switch by removing the Console and jumping the two outermost pins on the switch.
Following is an illustrated guide for how to access the console.
This is the Whirlpool PDF on installation and maintenance of direct drive washers. See the section on how to bypass the lid switch and on the transmission.
If the washer will drain but not spin the problem points to the Neutral Drain Assembly in the transmission.
The Whirlpool PDF has a very good explanation of how the assembly works.
Ours had the same problem, no draining or spinning unless the washer was stopped and restarted.
We replaced the neutral Drain Assembly for about $15 vs. $170 for a transmission.
If the Lid Switch is OK, please re-post a request for how to replace the neutral assembly.
