Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
Assuming that this is a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain washer.
Have you checked the motor coupling.
That is a device that connects the motor to the transmission .
To remove the cabinet on this design machine. Locate two screws in the bottom front of the control panel.
This panel is where you set controls. Remove the two Phillips head screws and lift up and turn control panel backwards. It will hinge to an up position and stay there.
Locate the two brass colored clips that hold the back of the washer to the cabinet. Remove by prying up with screwdriver.
Unplug the wires going to the lid switch. Pull forward on the cabinet and the whole thing will disconnect from the base of washer and you can set it aside.
After removing the cabinet, remove the pump and motor.
This is the Sears parts site. Enter your model number and a list of major components will appear.
Check the site for the pump and motor and you'll see the motor coupler.
If this plastic and rubber part is damaged on your machine, the motor will try to spin but the transmission (agitate and spin) won't be able to.
