Kenmore Washing Machine 70 series
You most likely have a broken coupler between the motor and gearcase.
You can buy the part for about $10 or have someone come out and replace it for about $150-200.
If you will post the complete model number from the the washer so I can see which style cabinet you have, I will try to walk you through the repair. It isn't very complicated if you are handy with home repairs.
With the age of the machine it probably just needs a coupler, but it could also have a problem in the transmission or basket drive that has caused the failure.

My kenmore washer is flashing F8 & E3. I don’t know what to do.
Hi Betty, f8 e3 error code means the machine is reading a water level that is too high. This can be caused by over sudsing or a bad drain pump not pushing enough water out. First thing to try is cleaning the machine. They are available at most grocery stores. That should get rid of any excess detergent in the machine. Then run a load of laundry and see if the error code clears. If that doesn't clear up the problem,I would call your local repair company and have them check the drain pump. Hope that helps.
