Usually this is due to either the drum support breaking or the back bearing being bad-neither easy to fix- or worth it. Try lifting the drum up and down, if it moves up and down they are bad. I see this a lot, and the price of repair isn't worth it. Craig

The load is out of balance. Open the lid and redistribute the contents. When it's empty, grab the basket and give it a slight push sideways. It should move a little but, not free swing. If it doesn't have much resistance, the "snubber" has dried out and should be replaced. It is simply a piece of rubber in a metal bracket, that rests on the tub. When the basket spins,the snubber keeps it from jumping around.

Check your belt it may be lose. A lose belt will cause a squealing noise and the machine spin slower or take time to come up to full speed

Hello, it sounds like the bearings are going bad. Try spinning the drum with
your hand while it is empty. It should spin nice and smooth. If the
rotation feels a little rough and noisy, you might have a problem. You
can double check by taking the drive belt off and try shaking the
pulley. If there is "play" when shaking the pulley, the bearings are
most likely toast. The inner stainless drum rides on two bearings which
sit in the rear of the outer plastic drum. The whole plastic drum and
bearings come as one piece and go for $150. It would cost about the
price of a new maching to have someone come out and repair it for you.
It sounds like kenmore has had a bearing problem which is pretty
rediculous considering how much these things cost. Sears said, "those
tend to go in a few years", which is criminal especially since the
warrenty is usually conveniently exopired by the time this problem
happens. If you are handy, have a spare day, and can remember how to
put a washing machine back together, go for it. I did it and it was not
a fun time. There is a lot of sharp metal edges in the machine so wear

Tips for a great answer:
Hello Deanna Lytle - Often when a unit does not spin, it is because the unit cannot properly drain and dispose of the water and detergent solution. Does the unit make a humming noise? If so, the drainage hose/pump may be clogged and needs to be cleaned. If not, the washer may possibly be experiencing an issue with the door lock assembly, faulty pump, timer or control board not communicating correctly. Because it could be a number of any one of several underlying causes, I would recommend contacting a professional to properly diagnose and repair the unit.
