Question about Kenmore 22642 Top Load Washer
If the washer will fill and drain, but won't agitate or spin, you may have a broken motor coupling. The noise of the motor engaging, lack of agitation and ability to still drain are the usual symptoms. This is a common fail item with this model washer through normal wear and tear. Newer versions of the coupler are more resilient and resist breaking. The following link explains how to replace one:
The motor coupling is located between the drive motor and the transmission and takes the place of a drive belt. They do wear out and can break. The replacement part number is included in the link I provided and is an improved upgraded coupling that is more resilient. It should last longer. If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
A replacement coupler can be purchased on line at appliancepartspros.com for about $11. Just use the part number in the link and "Search by Part Number" for your search criteria.

I had a problem similar to this. There was a bobbie (?) pin stuck in the pump. Google how to take the front off and then disassemble the pump. (It will be on the bottom right side in the front of the machine). Pretty simple. Took about an hour and a half.

Either the motor is trying to run and can't or doesn't start or the
motor is running but the belt broke and so it is not transferring any
You will need to take a look and see which is the case. If I could hear the sound it is making I could tell you the difference, but hey this is the internet so you will have to do it.
Once you determine the cause you can do a search for appliance parts and enter your model number, the site will then give you exploded diagrams of your machine and a list of parts to order from.
