Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
My Kenmore 70 fills, agitates, drains but does not spin the basket, the coupling is still intact and spins the drive just above the coupling, is there something else just for the the basket that could be replaced....this happened after I washed a large comforter.
Assuming your washer is direct drive 70 series (no model # given)... and the coupling is intact... you may be experiencing an internal gearbox problem.
This is a 9 out of 10 on the difficulty scale - and probably not a good idea to attempt if you have never done this type of repair before.
If you wish - please use the "continue with this expert" option and reply with the exact model # of your washer (ex. 110.875477), and I can point you to a new transmission.
Additional information would be helpful too...
Are you checking the agitate with clothes in the machine - or just water?
Can you spin the agitator by hand?
Have you tried to "help" the spin cycle manually while its trying to spin?
Is there any clicking sound during or just before the "spin" cycle?
If you advance the timer manually - does it spin?
Thanks for using FixYa - please remember to use the "Continue with this expert" so we are connected in the future.

It sounds like one of two things :
1. By pass the lid switch to rule this out as a problem.
2. I would replace the clutch, and see if that fixes it.Mostly in 99% cases clutch replacing will solve problem
3. If that does not fix it, then you are looking at replacing the brake tube assembly or the motor coupler is gone.
thanks.please do not forget to accept the solution.keep updated.
