Make model #?
Often times it's as simple as the door switch.

Kenmore heavy duty 70 series model 110. washer wont go through cycles (i.e. Wont drain if door is open) So I know that is not the problem.

Probably a faulty motor coupler. You need to remove the cabinet to gain access.

that washer does not have a belt it has a motor coupler between the motor and transmission. Fairly simple fix. Watch the video thefixer posted.

The fixer already did it for you.

Click on the picture of coupler in the lower left hand corner of the video while it's playing, it will say but this part now, it will take you right to website to order it.

They are universal. You can order them through repairclinic.com. I had to lay my Kenmore on its side to change one out on it, along with the transmission, because it was burned out from my wife washing a sleeping bag in it.

Although interchangeable, there are currently three different versions of these couplers. Part number 285753, 285753A which is the improved version with the metal inserts and there is a heavy duty version part number 285852.
