I've had that problem twice in the last decade. In both cases it was the water inlet valve. That's the gizmo that both water hoses are connected to on the back. You'll need an ohm meter to see if the valve is good; if it's bad, it's really simple to replace it, and costs around $30. (Of course you'll need the make/model of youjr washer to buy the part.)

Scoop the water out of the tub and move the washer out so you have access to the back. Remove both hoses from the washer and unscrew the back panel. Disconnect the leads from both terminals of the valve solenoids. Set your OHM meter on RX1 and probe both leads on a solenoid (do this for both solenoids). The reading will be between 100 - 1,000 for good solenoids.

I've found the absolute best book for repairs is the New Fix-It-Yourself Manual by Reader's Digest. Excellent drawings, troubleshooting, and instructions. I bought mine about 1996, and this year online, I bought 3 used books in excellent condition for my kids.

Not spinning and makes loud noise


Motor coupling failure is the most likely suspect. Easy and cheap to fix. It is a simple rubber "shock absorber" that links the motor to the transmission. Search for washer online and most likely you'll find the part and the easy repair instructions.

I have a Kenmore washer tube wont move to spin out


Hi, Do you know if the washer agitated at all? If the washer does not agitate or spin, the coupler is most likely the cause. If the washer agitates and does not spin, it could be spin basket drive or transmission.
Please let me know so I can assist you further.
