Hi, I have a washing machine that has been sitting up for about 3 or 4 years in a garage that is not climate controlled or anything. The washing machine wasn't used much so it was fairly new before it was stored. Well after pulling it back out for so long, I plugged it in, the water took some time to start back working. and there was no leaks. My problem come in to the fact its not agitating at all. It doesn't spin or anything. it drains when it needs to. I thought maybe it was the washing coupling, after watching so many youtube videos but it was barely ran. Im trying to get answer on what I need to do to fix the problem that has me now frustrated. The washing machine is a Kenmore. Please let me know.

Hi. It's remarkable how often this happens when an appliance hasn't been used for a long time but was perfectly OK when last used. I wrote a specific article about it with help and advice here Using a washing machine from storage - However, it can't really help in diagnosing why the motor no longer works. It could be so many different things as described here Washing machine drum not turning

If it's a front loading washing machine it may be worth opening the door and giving the drum a few hard spins in case by any chance the brushes have stuck. It's very much a long shot but costs nothing to try.
