Took off the machine cover. Took off the water pump. Took off the motor. Removed the old coupler and replaced with new one. The new one has a metal inner lining which is a much snugger fit than the old plastic one. I used the handle of the nut driver, placed inbetween the prongs of the coupler, and a hammer to tap the coupler into place where the coupler is flush with the end of the shaft. If the coupler is not flush it will cause the machine to smoke and heat up the motor during the agitation cycle. That was the only problem I encountered and had to take it back apart and re-position the coupler.
