SOURCE: belt and tensioner
lets see what we can do. wrap the belt around the tub assy. the little white roller w/ metal arm (called the tension pulley) needs to be installed .there should be a few holes directly under the motor pulley on floor of unit.two sets of holes you wanna use the set to the rear of unit. insert the prongs into the left rear **** and then pull the roller portion to the right.(it should hook the back prongs of idler into the rt side holes. tension holds this into position so it will fall out if you let go) theres an opening in the metal under the roller mounts, e**ugh room to slide the belt through.heres how it works, install the idler as described above, feed the belt through the opening in the idler from the left and under roller through hole pull the roller and pulley hard to the right.(its springy and as long as installed correctly ** worry of popping out) and loop around the motor pulley.let go of the pulley. and the belt should remain tensioned. it will only go on on way. GOOD LUCK

One of the transmission bolts has to be removed to be able to remove the 1" spacer . You also have to turn the pulley which moves the wig-wag to move the glide foreward to drop the shaft of the drive. Very difficult unless you've done it before .

Based upon the Model Number that you provided, this unit doesn't have a belt.
It is a basic Top Load, Direct Drive machine.
See the Sears Parts Site for your washer.
The problem is likely the Motor Coupler. See the section of the Sears site with the motor and gearcase.
Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive washers use a "Motor Coupler" between the motor and transmission.
It's used as a fail safe device and consists of three parts.
Two of the parts are the same, plastic units with three prongs that fit on one of the motor output shafts and the other on the transmission input shaft. Between them is a rubber piece with six holes.
The power from the motor is transmitted through the rubber piece to the transmission.
The other shaft on the motor directly drives the pump.
If the motor coupler is broken, or worn, the motor may not be able to send full power to the transmission for agitating or spinning.
See the following for how to remove the cabinet, pump, motor and motor mounting plate to inspect and replace the motor coupler.
If the coupler looks damaged, it's a relatively easy fix.
Pry the plastic pieces from the motor and transmission. Some people use a claw hammer but I've found that using a small (6 inch) pry bar works well.
Carefully fit the plastic pieces over the motor and transmission shafts and press them in place (Use a 1/2" of larger socket to put pressure equally around the pieces.
Put the rubber piece on the transmission plastic piece.
Replace the motor mounting plate.
Carefully line up the plastic prongs on the motor based plastic piece to the three un-used holes in the rubber piece. If they don't line up right, the coupler could be damaged.
Mount the motor, don't forget the two screws, put the pump back on the motor and use its' clips.
Put the cabinet back on, don't forget to plug the lid switch back in and re-mount the console.
