Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
I suggest first checking the water pump. If you don't know how to get inside your machine, watch this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLPGs2UMUJc&feature=related. It is very good (I've never worked on a WM before and this told me exactly what to do). Remove the washer casing and first check the pump. Take off the BOTTOM hose first to let the water drain into the spill pan (Have a bucket handy and or something with which to plug the pump in case the flow is too fast for your drain pan - but if you have an obstruction, it should drain slowly.) Once the water is out, remove the top hose and look inside your pump. I had a similar issue and found a small sock in my pump. Pulled it out and my 9 year old WM works like a champ now.
If that doesn't fix it, I'd then suggest removing the motor (just 2 screws and 2 clips) and checking the motor coupler. But if the coupler was the problem, your machine should have at least drained.
If that doesn't do the trick, you could be looking at a new transmission/gear casing - which on my WM was going to be around $170.
But again, I suspect your looking at something jammed in your water pump. Good luck!
