What next? Seems like maybe no electrical connection...thought I had connected everything correctly but checked again. Don't see anything obvious...pump rotates freely, reconnected hinge and all other switches; checked spin switch and it appears okay too; reconnected wires to capacitor. Checked for bent pins. Nothing.
Well, broke washer down, re-installed coupler just in case, checked all connections and pins and they looked fine. Even flipped switches in garage for washer outlet. Don't know what changed but now washer at least hums when I turn it to spin, then I smell maybe burning rubber? Anything else I can try? Thanks from an amateur wanting to save my washer!

And here's how to do it:

The shafts have to be at least flush with the top side of each coupler half. If you just pushed them on by hand and forced the motor back in place then you have the motor all bound up and it will not be able to work.

Okay, finally gave up as we needed our washer now! It's been two weeks and since this washer is 20+ years old, I just bought a new washer and dryer last night to be delivered tomorrow. It is also Kenmore but a model made by Samsung. The salesman was interesting...said some Kenmore washer/dryers had been made in Mexico but quality was so poor they stopped that. Many now made in North Korea but some Mexico models still being offered until they are gone.
I gave dryer to sister-in-law though and she was glad to have it!
Thanks to all of you for your advice. I gave it a shot but time ran out...
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy New Year, etc.,

model number ?
Parts service, and repair info may be hard to get for some Samsung's
The Kenmore LG's may have been a better choice
