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:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

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.

Why My Kenmore 70 Series Washer Won't Drain Or Spin?


You need to replace the lid switch. This is located under the case. you have to take the case off to change this part. This is done by taking the 2 screws out of the front of the control panel. Then flip the panel back and remove the 2 brass clips that hold on the case. Then you can remove the whole washer case to get acces to the lid switch. This is a very common problem and an easy problem to fix.

Series 70 Kenmore will not spin on any cycle.


Since the washer would still pump out the water, I removed the cover, then the pump, then the motor and I then found the coupler was broken.

Kenmore 70 series washer will not spin, clothes are too wet


Not a belt, this is only a sound deadening devise on the brake housing. Not really needed. Replace the coupler
