If you can move the tub by hand laterally - the rear main bearing has likely failed - or the drum rollers are worn.

Kenmore Elite Top Load does not spin on spin cycle


Hi, If the inner tub has dropped down, you will need to change the block that holds the tub to the shaft. Remove the agitator cap and then use a 7/16" socket to remove the bolt holding the agitator in.
Lift the agitator out and look at the block holding the inner tub. There should be two slots with two tabs sticking up inside them. You will probably see metal shaving as well.
If this is what you see, please let me know and I can direct you on further repair.

Thanks
Vic

Coupling is bad.
There is a coupling between the motor and the transmission. When this part breaks then it will pump the water out but won't spin or aggitate.
