The loading door does have a saftey switch for the spin cycle ... they can go bad or can switch intermitently when washer shakes. If the switch is not the problem ...The clutch assembliy is out of adjustment ... possibly worn mechanism internally. There is a solenoid that holds the clutch assembly in gear. That maybe intermitant. Unfortunately most all manufactures make specialty tools that are made only for there washers. I personally have a half-dozen wrenches that I have to fit most of them. I would suggest calling a "Liscensed Factory Certified" Appliance Repair Company that works on your particular brand and model. Honest Companies offer a "flat-rate" diagnostic fee. If they determines the Clutch assembly has to be replaced ... consider the COST before having it repaired.

Kenmore 70 series washer model 82871420 only runs on rinse cycle

Is the timer going through the wash time? Is the motor running but nothing happening? If the motor is running, then either it has not shifted into wash or the transmission is broken. An electrical coil shifts the transmission, it could be bad, or the trans it self is shot, time for a new washer.

Washer fills but will not agitate

When you say the rest of the cycles. make sure it is spinning. That washer will fill up and drain and not agitate or spin if you have broken the couplier between the motor and transmission the motor reverses. tip the machine back and feel right behind the motor for a plastic coupler. In wash check the bottom part of the agitator if its moving and the top is not you will have to replace the doggets in the agittator.

Washer won't agitate or spin out.

Well it is ethier Belt, Cluch ,motor ,Or transmission. But it does sound like your transmission . The loud clunk is the brake in the gear case ( Trans.). It might have broken off.

My washer wont spin

Your symptoms that indicates a broken motor coupler. If your washer will drain and fill but has not agitation action or spinning action that would indicate a broken motor coupler. The motor coupler links the drive motor to the transmission.

After spin cycle washer stops abrubtly causing it to shift.

You have dragging brake shoes. This will cause the motor to draw excessive current. Nedd to take apart and pull down spin tube to access the brake shoes
