Question about Kenmore 24862 Top Load Washer
It sounds like you may have a broken motor coupling. This is actually a common problem that usually occurs through normal wear and tear. This could have been a result of being in storage, as well. There is a rubber bushing between the coupler pieces that could have dry rotted from sitting so long and simply sheared apart. Replacement couplers are more resilient and resist breaking much better. If the washer will fill, will not agitate or spin, but will still drain, these are the symptoms of a broken motor coupling. This is a very simple and inexpensive repair. The following link explains step-by-step how to replace one:
The part number is included in the link I provided. You can purchase a replacement on line at appliancepartspros.com for about $11.
If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Welcome to FixYa
The problem seems
to be either with the brake assembly or the transmission assembly going bad and
needs replacement. If the sound is loud then the recommended repair is
replacing the transmission assembly however you can also check the brake pads,
if worn out then they also need replacement. Please get back to me if you have
any other questions.
