Kenmore washing machine design question

concerning the design of kenmore washing machine (1998 model), i think i remember that the motor spins one direction during agitate, then for the drain cycle, reverses the motor direction to make the pump operate. and, if i remember correctly, the spin occurs in the same motor direction as the drain cycle. (please correct me if this is wrong.)
if above is true, what i do not understand, is: when the motor reverses direction for the drain cycle, what triggers the basket NOT TO SPIN during the drain cycle? it apparently is not motor direction, if the drain and spin are in the same direction???

Doesn't this design have a transmission with a couple of solenoid-activated (and motor motion engaged/disengaged) clutches or do they not do that anymore?

if you are talking about "wig-wags", no, kenmore quit using them before 1998.
