Unplug the machine. Flip up the controls. Unplug the lid switch connector. Pop the S-clips and tip the case forward. Remove the case. POp the pump clips and tremove the pump. Unplug the motor harness and capacitor. Pop the clips on the motor and set it aside. Remove the coupling end from the transmission and motor. Gently tap the new coupling flush but not up against the tranny (do not bind it). Gently tap the coupling end ontot the motor. Line up the parts and snap the motor back onto the tranny without forcing or binding anything. It should snap on without a great deal of trouble it IS easy to lay the washer on its backside to install the coupling if you is old like I am. Just be careful not to damage anything if you do decide to lay it on its backside and remember the clock is ticking oil will go out of the tranny albeit slowly whilst the washer is on its side. I have 2 videos here. One show how to do it and the other show various styles (older and newer models)

I have a heavy doty 70 series top load washer. The drum and agitator do not move and the motor is making alot of noise. What is most likely wrong

Older style Kenmore washers had a belt. This washer probably don't have no belt that drives the tub. It has a coupler to transfer the energy from the motor to the tranny. If yall washed a rug or comforter lately then I suspect the drive coupler might be broken:
Replacing the coupler is fairly easy. You need a set of screwdrivers and some pliers to repair this puppy. Flip up the controls so the case can be removed on these washers. You never work from behind on this washer. Once the case is off you yank the pump and motor off and remove what is left of the old drive coupling from the tranny and the motor. Don't jam the coupler on the motor or tranny too tight or you will have problems.

I have a top loading Kenmore washer model # 22432100. It won't drain the water and spin. I completes every cycle up until then and it just stops. When I restart it, it works until draining,...

this is a direct drive washer the reason your unit is depending on if your hearing the motor running or not would either be the motor which i do not think it is or the drive coupler which connects the motor to the transmission and lets the unit spin here is also a video on how to do the repair for the drive coupler if when you disassemble you find the drive coupler intact and not broken message me back then for further diagnosis Thanks again heres you video

Will not agitate or spin

On Whirlpool brand made machines the drive coupler between the motor and the transmission is probably stripped out or broken and needs to be replaced.

Keep in mind that Whirlpool also manufactures: Estate, Roper, Kitchen Aid, some Kirkland and some Kenmore washers. All have the same coupler that gets stressed and breaks. A cause for this often times is overloading the machine.

After inspecting and finding the problem, make sure you have the model number and call your local appliance parts store or repair center and they probably have your part in stock.

Repairing a stripped out coupler is pretty easy for the doit yourselfer.

I suggest watching this video before attempting the repair:

Kenmore 90 does not spin (sounds like working & coupler is good)

If the coupler is ok then the next thing to check is the brake/ basket drive cam driver, the ear breaks off on em and won't release the brake. You must remove the agitator and drop the tranny to check itffbcc2d.jpg
Nothing is difficult about repairing the washer. I have repair photos HERE

Water fills up, nothing happens at all until the end of the cycle and the water drains. Fixable?

Maytags have both belt and direct drive washers. UNPLUG machine. No numbers for model... If it is a belt drive machine you should inspect the belt for damages (broken, worn out or off the pulleys) and tension replace if needed. If it is a direct drive it is probably the drive coupler. From below you can remove the pump and motor by removing the strapps that clamp them together. pump first, they just pull off after unstrapping them. The coupler has three parts and comes as a repair kit. The coupler prongs and or the rubber should be obviously broken or worn out if it is the problem. Replace with new parts and reassemble... Yes fixable in about an hour. Online parts for about $14.00.

Kenmore Washer won't spin

If the clutch spins and the transmission does not it is a bad clutch.
While you have it down replace the direct drive coupling also.
And yes, if the machine is in good condition otherwise it is worth doing the repair.
