Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
I have a Kenmore 90 series washing machine and recently I have noticed that the cloths come out soaking wet. I checked during the cycle to see what was happening by holding down the lid switch with a screw driver, and it would rinse the cloths and when it was supposed to spin it would just continue to agitate until the end of the cycle. It also has a slight, not strong at all, burnt smell inside of it, kinda like the smell of a fried circuit board. Any ideas? Thank
Model # 110.23932201 (it was manufactured by whirlpool for Kenmore I believe.)

When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these:
Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning:
Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.
Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess.
Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

Yes sir, a bad motor coupler could cause the machine not to spin. You did the right thing in checking out the lid switch and the pump first. It sounds as if the motor coupling is worn and may be slipping. I will attach a link to a video that may assist you. Hope this helps and best wishes.

Improperly installed thrust bearing kit. Too many washers cause the basket to spin during agitation.
