Question about Kenmore 3.2 cu. ft. Plus Top Load Washer
If this is a Whirlpool manufactured TOP LOADER WASHER (such as the one pictured), it does not have a drive belt. These model washers use a motor coupling in place of a drive belt and are known as direct-drive systems. If the washer does not agitate or spin, it could 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:

The following link explains what the dogs are, and how to access to acces the bolt and replace them: http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608577-replacing_agitator_dogs 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.

Most of these parts are commonly sold as part of their in-store inventory.
