Default Kenmore 80 series belt replacement

My Kenmore 80 series washer won't agitate. It runs through all the cycles just fine. I'm assuming the belt needs replacement. I'm having a difficult time figuring out where to access the belt and how to replace it. If anyone knows where the access is, can you also tell me how to remove the parts necessary for the access?

My model # is: 110.20832990

Thanks,
Ashli

A Whirlpool built Kenmore, direct drive style = no belt.

What happens instead?
Water keep filling, water shuts off ok, motor runs in the agitate mode, motor hummmmmmms only in the agitate mode ,etc...
Upper 1/2 of the agitator not going around, bottom 1/2 of the agitator not going back and forth?

No belt.
Access helps...

Jeff,
The agitator nor the spin cycle work. The washer fills and then won't agitate, then it drains, rinses, and then the spin cycle won't work, but the motor runs through all the cycles. The motor sounds fine. What's your best advice?

Thanks,
Ashli

Check for a broken/worn out motor coupler...

Direct drive coupling used between the motor and the transmission on direct drive model Whirlpool/Kenmore washing machines
