Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
If your Kenmore does not spin, the two most common problems that cause this problem is either a lid switch malfunction or a broken motor coupling. The following link explains how to diagnose the problem to determine WHICH one may be the source of your problem:
There are follow-on links included with the instructions I provided that also explain how to access and replace these parts (if required).
If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER (located on a nameplate along the wash tub rim under the lid) so that I may be able to determine how your washer is configured and provide you with better assistance. I hope this helps you.
NOTE: A no spin problem can also be caused by a bad gearcase (transmission), clutch, drive motor, or timer, but these parts are more expensive and do not routinely wear out as quickly as the parts I have mentioned. Its better to attempt to rule out the least expensive options first.

1. you may have a malfunctioning "timer" which needs replacement.
this will take some electronic skills to replace.
2. I suggest that you call a repair person to replace it.
3. You also can call Sears repair and they should repair it for fee.
