The shaft should not need to be removed, just pull in the spring loaded moter

Sears gave me an estimate of $1439.65 to repair machine by replacing the following: 1 SUB TUB-OUTE - 213.82 1 GASKET - 12.16 1 SUB TUB-OUTE - 411.91 1 SUB BASKET - 492.69 1 BELT ...

Check your warranty. We just had that problem, with the exact same parts replaced, but the outer tub has a ten year warranty, and the basket a lifetime warranty. We just paid labor and for one belt. Our washer is also almost eight years old.

Washing Machine doesn't spin/drain.

Did he overload the unit
The belt may be moving but are the pulleys still locked to the shafts
Use a dab of white out, paint, colored marker and then watch the shafts to see if they are moving.
Could have broken a shaft key.

Hello, Yes, the repair tech is correct. This model washer does NOT have a drive belt. It uses a gearbox driven directly by the electric motor. It is likely that the gearbox has a stripped gear or a broken drive wheel.

I've attached a link to the Sears parts web site so you can look at all the line drawings and parts diagrams for your washer model. You can click on each link to see the various components and also get a replacement parts list, which shows the prices (if you buy them thru Sear's site) to give you a better idea of the anticipated cost to replace the gearbox, etc.!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=110.91110100&=part+number

Just click on the link titled, "BRAKE, CLUTCH, GEARCASE, MOTOR AND PUMP " to get a good look at the parts that make the washer agitate and spin.

You might want to take a closer look to see if it a gearbox issue or maybe a motor drive shaft problem where the keyway has sheared off and is causing the washer not to spin. If, however, the washer agitates during the wash cycle, the problem is NOT a stripped keyway on the motor shaft, but rather is within the gearbox and you'll have to either repair or replace the gearbox to get the washer working properly again.

The decision to undertake the repairs or purchase a new washer is yours to make, but I can offer the following to help you decide. If the parts (and labor costs, if you don't do the repair yourself) exceeds 60% of the cost of a new, comparable machine AND the machine is over 8-10 years old, AND you've got rust starting to appear inside the wash tub, etc. you might wish to seriously consider replacing your washer with a new one. Otherwise, go ahead and make the repairs and keep it working for (hopefully) many more years to come.
I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

I'd go to the Sears parts site for your washer:!retrieve.pd?pop=true&modelNumber=110.82873800%29

and check the sub-components lists for a gasket or part under the tub that keeps the water from leaking.

With a 21 year old washer, it's likely that one of the rubber or plastic gaskets has finally worn.

Belt replacement on kenmore washer

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 .

Frontloader pumps water out but won't spin

You need to replace your drive coupler. You can get the drive coupler at sears online or your local parts store. After you get the part go to sears online, Put in your model number and it will bring up a diagram to show you exactly where it is. The drive coupler goes between the motor and the transmission, It makes it spin and agitate.
