Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
SOURCE: Washer doesn't agitate
sounds like your washer went mellow on you(doesn't get agitated, right)?
ok. enough humor.
sounds like there's a problem with the motor/belt/control board in that order

I had the same problem and ended up replacing the control board which solved it. Contact Westland Sales at 800-356-0766 ext. 5 for tech support.

Hi Norm. Welcome to FixYa.
The first thing to check with the kind of symptoms your machine exhibits is the operation of the lid switch. Make sure that the pin/plunger on the lid itself has not broken off, and check the actuator lever on the switch itself. It is REALLY common on your model for the actuator arm to break off or crack, and this will cause no spin/no pump problems. Your machine is built by Whirlpool and the part number for the switch assembly is a 3849238. You can get it at any local whirlpool parts center in your area.
I hope you find this info helpful and thank you for allowing us to serve you.
Happy New Year from the FixYa crew!

Welcome to FixYa
is caused when the motor goes bad and needs replacement. The control will fill
water and then sends signal to the motor to start a cycle, if it won't work
then it will drain the water and so won't start the cycle. However, it can also
be a bad door latch-lock assembly as if the control senses that the door is not
closed it won't start the cycle. If you hear any humming buzzing sound from the
bottom of the unit then replace the motor if not then replace the latch
assembly. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
