I have a Kenmore 24982 top loading washer. It will run through a wash cycle without a problem, but when it goes into the spin cycle, it will start out slowly and then stop. It will sit there humming for a while (an electrical hum, as if it has overloaded a circuit breaker), and then try again only to repeat the humming cycle. Occasionally, if I start the whole process over again, it may run through all the cycles completely, but that is becoming rare. I put a power strip in line with the electrical cord to plug in a small light in the laundry room, and when I ran the washer it tripped the breaker on the power strip. It must be drawing a lot of current. Any suggestions?

If the machine fills, and washes and won't drain or spin out the water you need a direct drive coupling. It is located at the bottom and is on the motor shaft and consits of 3 pieces. Check this first, easy fix and not expensive.
It sounds like your washer is not going through it's neutral drain. After agitation, your washer should pause and drain for around 90 seconds to pump out the water before spin. Check this out by starting a wash with a small screw driver holding the lid switch down. This will allow you to observe whether or not it's going through it's neutral drain. If not, it's a transmission problem. The trans is covered under warranty for 5 years. You may also want to check the pump to see if it's gunked up. Catriver..post back.
