My washer fills and agitates but does not drain or spin. I removed all the water and with research have seen it may be a clogged drain or a burnt out motor coupler. I would like to check the drain before taking the cabinet off which border on over my hea. Can anyone tell me where the drain is? SHoulod I take the drain hose off and fish around there? Any other ideas? Thanks!

** Kenmore Washer Model 110.92582110 **

That is a Whirlpool 'direct drive' washer design. You can read about them at the following link:

** My washer fills and agitates but does not drain or spin. I removed all the water and with research have seen it may be a clogged drain or a burnt out motor coupler. **

The motor coupler would NOT affect draining of the washer and it WOULD affect the agitation too if it were damaged. So it is not likely your problem.

A problem with draining would NOT affect spinning (besides maybe slowing it down), so that is not likely your problem either.

If the washer timer stops right at the drain/spin part of the cycle and never moves further, there may be a problem with the washer's lid switch (see the following link) or the lid switch's actuator.

- Kenmore 110.92582110 Lid Switch

A washer will not go into spin (where the draining also takes place) unless it can detect the lid is closed, as a safety precaution. That is done via the lid switch. A problem with it will affect both spinning and draining while leaving the rest of the functions working.

I'm surprised the motor would still turn for agitation but glad to hear you found the problem. Thanks for the follow up.
