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 went to the link, took the thing apart,and wouldn't you know it - a baby sox firmly wedged in the pump!

YEA! Just saved $00 as we were on our way to give up and go buy a new washer. Thanks for you help!

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