Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
Almost every machine I've seen that doesn't washes but doesn't spin had the same problem, the drive belt is greasy making the belt slip, it takes five minutes to fix no parts needed. Take the back off. Spray the belt with any soapy cleaner, take a stiff brush and hold it onto the side of the belt that is in contact with the motor. Turn the belt, while holding the brush against it. Should turn easily if you pull it either direction in line with the way it normally moves. It will run over a large pulley wheel, scrub the edge of the wheel which contacts the belt, there should be plenty of space, the belt only goes over the top and sides. Put the back on leave it to dry for 15-20 minutes, it should spin fine.

A bit of a pain to replace, but doable..
Belt dressing will keep it going for a while..
Dont get your fingers caught in it..
Serious injury is possible, unplug the machine
and stand on the plug while moving the
belt to goop it..
(why? that way it cant get plugged in!)
