    the washer from the power socket and mains and lay it on its side to get
    underneath it. Now rotate the pulleys and pull the belt off from them. Attach
    the new belt by placing it over the pulleys while slowly rotating them. Put the
    washer to its normal position and plug it back in the power socket and mains
    and switch it on. Now run a cycle to check whether the belt is working properly.
    Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment
    for further assistance.

I have a top load Kenmore 110.27731600, purchased in 2007. It will no longer agitate for any cycle. Previously the agitator seemed to "slip" like a belt was getting loose, altho in reference...

There has to be a belt. Must be broke, or motor could be burnt up, too many heavy loads will do that. Will be on bottom of unit naturly. Check to see if it is broke.

Hey bud, i replaced my kenmore washer with a new coupler, but still it will not spin??

inspect under the washer. look at springs for broken or one that may have come loose. inspect drive belt for broken or off pulleys. the drive belt is not turning pulleys, belt maybe broke or outa pulley grooves. or belt tension springs are broken or unhooked. good luck!!

Sounds like belt is broken. Open front cover and look at belt, if broke replace. If not broke try unplugging for 2 minutes, plug back in then open and close lid 7 times slowly, this should reset the electronic motor.
