removed motor and broken coupler... installed new coupler and replaced motor. also removed pump to inspect for sock, etc. that that might have caused coupler to break.. ADVICE: Look for how-to video on YouTube first. Remove outer cabinet according to video by first removing the top control panel and then remove the outer cabinet which exposes the motor and pump. This way you will not have to tip machine up/back and work under it. This repair is made easily by first removing the outer cabinet.
