Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
If this is a Whirlpool manufactured TOP LOADER (such as Estate, Roper
and Kenmore), a no spin problem can have several causes. Most commonly,
this is caused by either a lid switch malfunction or a broken motor
coupling. The following link explains how you can diagnose the problem
yourself and repair:
From the symptoms you describe, it sounds like you may have a broken motor coupling.
Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:
Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites I listed also include helpful exploded view parts diagrams to assist you in locating and properly identifying the parts you may need. If you do not wish to order parts on line, use the part numbers from the Sears website and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. Most of these parts are commonly sold as part of their in-store inventory.
Read through the information provided. If you have any questions, please post back with your complete MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this is helpful to you.

More than likley you have a broken drive coupler
tilt unit back and lean against the wall you will see the pump attatched the motor and attached to one side of the motor is the coupler and the other side is the transmission where the other side of the coupler sits. turn the power off first and take the pump off
then the motor
there are a total of 4 clips you will have to remove and possible 2 screws 5/16
always check the coupler first
could be your clutch but start here first and let me know what you find
part number for the coupler 285753a
