I have a Kenmore Washer (110.82870320) that fills and drains but won't spin.  Took the cabinet off and the coupler was torn up pretty bad.  My assumption is that something else stuck and the coupler was destroyed in the process.

I took the motor off to get to the coupler, here is where I'm confused.  I would expect the tub to turn fairly easily but I can't turn the tub.

Should the tub be able to turn on its own?

No, the motor turns the coupler and this turns the transmission, but you cannot turn the spin basket because the break has to release, will not do this until the machine is back together and the transmission and clutch work together to release the break for spin.  The coupler breaks because of overloading the washer, or something else jammed the washer.  The coupler is designed to break to protect the motor if the transmission locks up or the washer is overloaded
