Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
Fills up with water. never starts agitating...time still works. at end of wash cycle it starts to spin and empties of water...refill for rinse...never agitates then spins and empties...
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.
First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
Enter your model number and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.
Following is the Whirlpool installation and maintenance PDF on how top load, direct drive washers work with a troubleshooting section.
Following is the Whirlpool parts list for commercial top load, direct drive washers although the consumer washers are basically the same.
The problem seems to point to the Agitate Cams in the transmission that raise and lower the Agitate gear on the main transmission shaft. These are relatively inexpensive to replace.
I'd also check the splines on the main agitator shaft and the two pronged "washer" on top of it.
