Question about Kenmore 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.
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.
First, I'd check the motor coupler that transmits power between the motor and transmission. If the coupler is bad, (the prongs are broken) it might be able to transmit enough power for agitating but slips when thr washer goes into spin mode.
Following are descriptions of how to remove the cabinet and get to the coupler.
If you pull the transmission you should be able to see if it is leaking.
See the following Whirlpool parts breakdown for top load, direct drive commercial washers (consumer models are basically the same.)
I'd look at the gearcase cover seal for a possible leaking problem.
