Series 70 Kenmore Washer Won't Agitate or Spin

My Kenmore 70 series washer will not agitate or spin. It makes a loud clicking noise instead of begin the agitate or spin cycle. I even tried it empty to see if it was an overload.

    Sadly, the gears in the transmission are broken. My wife wanted a new machine anyway. Thanks for the help!

    My wife reports to me that our Kenmore 70 series washer does not agitate or spin. She thought the clothes made it through a complete washing cycle, but the clothes seemed too wet, so she put the clothes back on rinse and spin cycles, but the agitator and the drum (basket) would not move.

    When I got home I vacuumed the water out of the mashine and tried it in every setting. The agitator barely moved, but I could hear the hum of the motor.

check to make sure the belt hasn't come off. if it's direct drive make sure the shaft is working and moving freely. if all of these check out the motor that turns everything my be stuck, frozen up or just bad all together.

Kenmore series 70 washer will only fill with water.

I recently had this problem. It was found that the main drive belt broke and the washer would fill but not spin, agitate or drain. I replaced the belt and everything worked again. A defective or disconnected cover switch would also cause the same problem.

I had the same clicking noise. Turned out to be the coupling between the motor and transmission. A $15 plus 1 hour labor fix
