Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
We have a Kenmore Heavy Duty Series 70 washing machine: It will fill and agitate in the wash cycle, but keeps agitating until I manually move the dial forward to drain. It drains, but then it keeps draining until I move the dial forward to fill. Then it fills and agitates in the rinse cycle, but keeps agitating until I manually move the dial forward to drain. Then it drains, but keeps draining until I move the dial forward to spin. Then it spins, but it keeps on spnning until I pull the dial to stop.
Either your timing motor has broken or the gears that it drives are stripped. The timing motor is easy to replace but if the gears are stripped you will need a whole new dial assembly.

set the load size to small, fill with water.
now after it fills with water do you hear anything? motor noise?
If you hear motor noise, it probably has a broken motor coupler.
if it doesnt do anything I would look at the lid switch and activator, the lid has to close and the switch has to know it closed. did the tab on the lid break off?

Sounds like you have a broken motor coupler. Not expensive. #13 on the diagram. Part # 285753, dave www.washermd.com

It sounds like the agitator gripping teeth are worn out. To check this, take the agitator cap off with a strong knife or flat-head screw driver, pull the cap off and check the plastice teeth and four plastic hooks that grab the teeth. If they are worn out, then you will have to replace the agitator. To replace it, you will see a nut that is between the circlular teeth. Unscrew the nut and pull the agitator up hard.

You will need a set of agitator dogs. Pull off your agitator cap and look under it, you will see 4(four)small tabs that catch and release the top 1/2 of the agitator.
