Good day,
It can be done but is one major project. I've added a tutorial on how to replace it. I agree with most of it but I do suggest you completely remove the pump. It will make life a lot better.
As well I would read # 41 carefully. If that BB falls out, and you don't replace it properly, the machine will assemble but not spin.

EITHER A LOOSE WORN OR BROKEN BELT, A LOOSE SLIPPING CLUTCH A BAD DOOR SWITCH

Why the fan is not working , the fan not move


1.Check to see if the washer is overloaded. Modern washing machines have automatic shut-off devices for out-of-balance loads. Try removing some of the clothes out of the washer and restart it. Check to make sure the lid closes properly and that the lid switch clicks when the lid is closed. If the lid switch does not click, then the switch may need to be replaced or the lid may be bent. If the washing machine still does not spin, go to Step 2. Make sure the water is draining properly. If the water does not drain out, then it could cause the washing machine not to spin. Check all the drain hoses for any clogs or kinks. This is easily done by disconnecting the drain hoses and doing a visual check for clogs or kinks
3.Check to see if any belts have came off or are loose. Unplug the washer and pull it away from the wall. Use the screwdrivers to remove the back panel. Visually check for any broken or loose belts. Replace any loose or broken belts.
4. While the back panel is off, visually check for any loose or missing bolts on the motor or drum. If any are missing or loose, tighten them and replace the ones that are missing.
5. If everything has checked out to this point, then the water level switch could be bad or the water level hose could be clogged. Remove the front panel of the washer and locate the clear tube going from the tub to the water level switch. If lint or debris has gotten into the water level hose, then the washer may not spin fast. Clean the debris from the hose by blowing on the hose or tapping it on the side. To check the water level switch, go to the back of the washer and locate the back end of the water level hose. Use the voltmeter to check to see if the water level switch is getting any power.
6.If the washing machine still doesn't spin fast enough or doesn't spin at all, then it is time to call in a professional washing machine repairman.

    Washing machine wont spin and is full of water and wont drain


    1. 1 A washing machine won't spin if the water can't drain. Check hoses for any kinks or clogs that may prevent the water from draining. If a hose has kinks, try to straighten out the kinked hose. If it can't be straighten sufficiently, replace the hose. If hoses are not kinked, check for clogged hoses. This can be done by using the screwdrivers to remove the hoses and looking for clogs or running a water hose through the clogged hose to remove the clog. Use the rags and bucket to clean up the water that comes out of the hoses when they are disconnected. Once the clog is cleared, put the drain hose back into place. The washer should drain and spin now if a clogged or kinked hose was the problem.
    2. 2 If the washer still won't drain or spin, check to see if the lid is not closing all the way or if the lid switch is not clicking into place. Close the lid and make sure that it closes all the way down. When the lid closes, the lid switch should click. If there is no clicking sound, then the switch may need to be replaced. Follow manufacturer's directions for replacing the switch. If the lid does not close all the way, visually check for signs that the lid is bent. If bent, try to bend it back into place.
    3. 3 Loose or broken belts could also prevent a washing machine from draining or spinning. Pull the washer away from the wall and, using the screwdrivers and wrenches, remove the back panel. Using the flashlight, visually check for any broken or loose belts. Replace any broken or loose belts. Although replacing washing machine belts is difficult, anyone who has replaced belts on a car, lawn mower or even a bicycle chain should be able to accomplish the task.
    4. 4 Another possibility for a washing machine to not spin or drain is the pump. With the back panel still off the washer, check the pump with the voltmeter to ensure that the pump is getting power. If the washer is getting power, turn on the washer and listen to find out if the pump is running but the water is still not draining. It may be necessary to remove the pump and clean it or to replace the pump with a new one. Once the pump is replaced, turn on the washer to determine if it will now drain and spin.
    5. 5 If all of the above steps fail to produce a washing machine that drains or spins, then it is time to call a professional repairman. Use the screwdrivers and wrenches to replace the panel on the washer and push it back against the wall.

    My kenmore 800 top loading washing machine just quit it wouldn't drain the water out and it wasn't spinning? It does make the sound of working when I pull the start dial but nothing happens


    check the belt motor if loose or lost or it came out or broken. the belt is at the bottom of the washer. Remove the water using a cup and slowly and be carefull laying sideways the washer, then you will see the belt there, if you can not see the belt, that washing machine is a tranmission type machine, need to call Sears apliance service. ok

    Washer fills, drains, but doesn't spin


    Is the drive belt broken, assuming the motor runs. Or has a pulley come loose?

    Kenmore washer 80 series 110 model not spinning.


    unless your washer is over 20 years old, then it wont have a belt. the temperature of the water wont have anything to do with it spinning or not.
    need to know if it agitates or drains and just wont spin.
    if it agitates but no spin or drain, then you have a bad lid switch.
    if it wont agitate or spin, but will drain, then you have a broken drive coupling.

    Water not draining


    The belt may have failed due to the pump seizing up.
    Remove the belt and turn the pump with your hand. If the pump seems hard to turn (should turn freely) replace the pump.
