99% of kemore washers (anything after 1950)
dont have a belt. and
the back does not come off for repair, the front does, with the removal of 2 screws
If the washer does not agitate or spin the usual cause is a plastic & rubber coupling between the motor and gearbox. replacement gearbox couplings now have a metal hub to prevent further breakage.
If this matches the problem you are trying to fix, reply & I will step by step the replacement process, its 2 screws, 2 bolts, a hammer & dowel & some time, to fix

SOURCE: Washing machine won't spin
I think it's the capacitor. The capacitor live under the top of the washing machine, two screws, and measures about 7"x2". The capacitor gives the drum An extra 'bump' when all the weight is in It. Remove the capacitor with a pair of pliers or a spanner but under NO circumstances, touch the two connections at the to of the unit, you will get one hell of a shock! Run the machine empty with the top off and it should run properly.Then refix the top. Job done,

There is no belt on this machine.
It uses a direct drive coupling between the motor and transmission.
Ope the control console,then remove the cabinet clips to remove the cabinet for access to the motor.
Remove the motor then remove the broken drive coupling(3 parts).
Replace the part and re-assemble the washer.

don't touch the back,there isn't a belt in kenmore washers and don't touch the back panel,there are white covers on each side of the top panel,pop them off and remove the two phillips screws,one on each side,then flip the panel up,with a screw driver pop the two metal clips,just stick the screw driver in the hole and on top of the clip and push back to the wall and the clip will repease,now in the middle of the clips you'll see the lid switch connector,separate it,open the lid and grab the frame,tilt it up and back at you and remove the frame,on the bottom you'll see the pump,remove the two clips and pull off the pump,then remove the two screws and pop the two clips and slide out the motor,on the back of the motor you'll see the coupling,that's what broke,you need to replace the motor coupling
