If it drains and won't spin you have to replace the direct drive coupling.

SOURCE: kenmore ultra fabric care heavy duty 80 series wont spin

I contacted partsdepotonline.com. They were very helpful. The problem is a broken coupler. Part #100017 from Parts Depot. Part #275753A from Kenmore. Parts Dept is cheaper.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Ultimate Care Heavy Duty Washer will not spin

It sounds like you have a broken motor coupling. This is a very inexpensive and simple repair.

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:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385252-replacing_motor_coupling_whirlpool_top
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.

Kenmore heavy duty series 70 won't spin


Will it drain ? IF wont drain either , then the lid switch is bad . (The piece on the washer where the lid actuator goes into the washer top ) . If it will drain , then the motor/trans coupling is bad , if it will not agitate/spin .

Kenmore 90 plus series: heavy duty super capacity won't agitate


this is the site to find out how to fix your washer.
you have a broken drive coupling.
it probably wont agitate or spin, but will fill and drain.
you need to remove 2 screws from the control panel, hinge it back and then remove the 2 brass colored clips that hold the cabinet to the base. once you do then pull the entire cabinet forwards to a 45 degree angle and pull it off the base.
then pull the 2 clips off pump and then 2 more on the motor. that will allow you to get to the drive coupling. you will find it to be broken.
replace it with part number 285753a for about 15-20 bucks.

24642300 doesn't spin


  • yes it does sound like the timer is bad. 
  • the timer has small contacts in it (sort of like a music box) that lift and rest in certain places. 
  • these contacts may not mate properly as the timer goes around slowly in the normal operation.
  •  but when you manually turn it is a faster turn and the contacts will fall faster and get a better connection.
