Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer
It's definitely not a worn or broken motor coupler issue. Otherwise, the machine will fill and drain but will never agitate nor spin. The issue is most likely to be an issue with the brake and clutch assemblies. The brake shoe assembly must not be fully disengaged during the spin cycle and a slight to moderate friction is introduced. The friction is slight for the high-speed spin cycle and does not obviously affect the speed but it is moderate to severe for the low-speed spin cycle and the speed is greatly affected.
Check the clutch and the brake assemblies. The brake shoes must be released completely from the brake drum when the motor turns in the spin direction and the clutch tab push the brake cam driver and release the brake to allow the basket to spin.

Thanks for using FixYa. Open the top cover off and check for any foreign objects stuck in the tub. If there are no objects stuck then put the washer in spin and see if the spin basket turns freely. If not and makes a grinding sound then bearings have gone bad. Now pull the front panel off and check for leaking tub bearing. If ok, remove belt and check water pump for bad bearings. If it is fine then turn the pulley counterclockwise. If hard to turn, remove bottom of pulley dust cover and confirm pulley cam move to the open section of the shoulder. If not, adjust it to allow complete brake release. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.
