Question about Kenmore 25862 Top Load Washer
Washing machine fills with water but will not agitate or spin and makes a loud clanking/rachety noise when the motor runs. It is direct drive. I am guessing that something has broken in between the electric motor and the drive.

Tips for a great answer:
Possible that the INLET valve is also making noise due to faulty coil, check , confirm by disconnecting the valve.
It is so common that the washing machine can make
terrible noise in many ways and is a common fault. In all occasions it is
important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the
identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that machine is
vibrating when it is running then the motor /drum suspension has to be
inspected. Since these fittings are located on the underside of the machine it
is important that you look for the noise with a good inspection lamp. Manually
turn the motor and drum and listen for the noise, if so the motor bearings, the
drum agitator shaft and fittings must be checked. Also the suspensions which
include the shock absorbers and springs, the body clamps must be checked to be
in correct alignment and not changed in position. Tightening of the
mounting is also very important. Finally
in most cases a drop of OIL or smear of grease on the moving parts cane solve
