Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
Assuming that this is the basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain two piece agitator model.
There is a Sears repair parts site:
Enter your model number and a list of major sub-components will come up.
Since it isn't agitating (I assume not at all rather than just the top part of the agitator. If just the top part
isn't turning then the easiest solution is replacing the 4 "agitator dogs" ) the solution points to a
couple of places.
1. The motor coupler

may be broken. This piece is a fail safe between the motor and transmission. and basically transmits power to the transmission.
If it spins and drains OK, and if you can hear the motor turning, the problem points to the transmission.
Inside the transmission are a number of gears, springs, and plastic cams and levers. Over time one of
them may have either broken or worn out.
There is a Whirlpool site with a parts list for their "commercial washer" which is essentially the same as
for your washer. On it is a list of all of the components and parts for the washer.
By paging down to and following the diagram of the transmission you should be able to determine
which actual part is broken.
When our washer (12 years old) wouldn't spin, rather than spending $170 for a new transmission, we
installed a repair kit into the old one ($15) and the problem was solved.
