IF your coupling is broke then put a new one on and see, but without a coupling then you dont have a washer period. Whirlpool is very good make if a new coupling does not work and you can hold the tub while it is spinning then you have a bad basket drive. but put a coupling on and then put it in spin, bypass the switch with a ink pen or something and try holding the tub if you can then its the basket drive if not your good to go.

The pump will drain but motor not getting signal to spin


If this is a top loading machine it is probably the drive coupling that is causing the problem. pump is driven from one end of the motor and gearcase driven from other. so when coupling is broke it will pump but won't agitate or spin

Gearcase


The following link gives step-by-step instructions on how to repalce the gearcase on a Kenmore top loading washing machine with a direct-drive transmission:

To answer your question, "yes", you DO need to remove the agitator. That is explained in step 11 of the instructions. I hope you find this information helpful. If you require additional assistance, please let me know.

PS Any particular reason why you are wanting to remove the gearcase?

Kenmore washer


If your washer is not spinning fast enough, or barely spinning at all, this is usually a symptom of any one or all of the following: 1. Bad gearcase (transmission). 2. Bad basket drive, with which the transmission couples to under the agitator. 3. Bad clutch/brake assembly. Which mounts on top of the gearcase under the basket drive. Usually a tell tale sign of a gearcase beginning to fail is the sign of an amber colored oil coated under the washer or inside the casing. I said, "usually". It doesn't always happen, but if you notice any signs of oil, the gearcase is shot. The basket drive and clutch assemblies are harder to diagnose and require some disassembly of the washer and the removal of the gearcase to inspect. Let me know if this helps.
