The smell is raly bad because it doesnt drain all the water out , so it sits there. if all else with the machine works well, this means the water level sensor needs replacing

Washing machine keeps draining during rinse


You may be experiencing a condition known as "siphoning". This is caused by the drain hose not being high enough off the floor, or not having a proper air gap at the standpipe in order to drain properly. This creates a suction and the washer will constantly drain as it tries to fill. The following link explains:

In the majority of the cases, this problem is attributed to improper installation, rather than an actual problem with the washer. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Kenmore series 70 will not fill


Ive only run across this a couple of times in my years of appliance repair. This sounds like you do not have an air gap on the drain hose. Where the hose hangs into the wall drain pipe make sure you do not have that sealed air tight with duct tape around it or something. It needs to have a gap all the way around the hose and just hang freely. If it is sealed off then it creates a siphon effect and sucks the water right out of the washer tub into the drain.. Hope this helps.. Thanks

Water is coming out of the bottom of the washing machine


Tip the machine back and remove the 2 clips holding on the drain pump. Remove the hoses. Then turn the pump over to where the motor shaft enters it. There will be signs of water leaking out of the pump. Your local parts store will have the pump instock.

Kenmore 70 series will not drain or spin


It sounds like the lid switch. If it ws the coupler the water would drain. Check to see if the lid switch is clicking when you put the lid down. replace the lid switch. You have a great washer. Fairly cheap fix.

When this machine is not spinning, the water should still be able to drain, as the motor drives the pump on the same shaft as the coupler for the tranny. Set to the spin setting and depress the lid switch, if the water still does not drain, you may have something stuck in your pump, which would also lock the motor shaft and not allow it to spin or agitate. If the water does drain, check the motor coupler, which is located between the motor and transmission, if broken, the motor will run but there is no drive to the transmission. Hope this helps...

You most likely have a broken coupler between the motor and gearcase.
You can buy the part for about $10 or have someone come out and replace it for about $150-200.
If you will post the complete model number from the the washer so I can see which style cabinet you have, I will try to walk you through the repair. It isn't very complicated if you are handy with home repairs.
With the age of the machine it probably just needs a coupler, but it could also have a problem in the transmission or basket drive that has caused the failure.
