The new drive motor coupling arrived on time as stated. I am not sure if I had order the correct parts or not, but this was what it came up on the part finder search.
The new parts with the re-enforced metal sleeves has a slide bumps/notch inside the ring. This was preventing the coupling assembly to fit into the existing motor on both ends. I had to hammer both pieces slowly and carefully not to damage the new coupling and also not to damage the motor and the transmission assembly. Even after hammering the two pieces, they still did not seated all the way as the original part was. But at least I was able to re-seat the motor properly and re-screwed the brackets and put everything back in order.
I have the machine running again for a week now with no problems. Had about 10 loads of washing already.
