Question about Washing Machines
This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.
Please see the Whirlpool installation and maintenance PDF on their Top Load, Direct Drive washers.
If this is the type of washer that you have, I'd pull the cabinet and check the Motor Coupler.
Following is a description of how to do it.
If it isn't the coupler, and you want to go further, it is possible that the "Agitate Gear" in the transmission is damaged.
Here is a description of how to "pull" the transmission on top load washers.
Although getting into the transmission is somewhat messy (it holds about 14 oz. of oil) it can be done, and replacing the gear isn't too difficult.
