Motor coupling broke

  • Customer: Wade from Presque Isle, ME
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

Once you take the housing off it's only two clips to remove the water pump from the motor, then two screws and two more clips to remove the motor itself. One issue I ran into was the new coupling was hard to put on, so the first time I did I overheated the motor because it was binding (was also very hard to get the motor back on). After taking it apart again, and slightly tapping both couplings with a hammer the motor went on very easy and washer works like a champ!

I took apart the cover of the washing machine, remove the back, and disconnected the hoses , also disconnect the controls,remove the pump and the motor,which are ben hold by two brackets, then proceed to remove the old parts and insert the new ones, the only problem is that they fit too tight and I used a round tool to insert the new ones, after that i put everything together and bingo, the machine is working already.

Your video was very helpful in showing steps for repair so I didn't have to discover how to disassemble. The old Direct Drive Motor Coupling had three broken couplers on one side and a cracked center on the other. New Direct Drive Motor Coupling was a much improved design that should last even longer than original. The couplers metal sleeves and overall thicker part was what original should have been.

I pulled up PartSelect, compared their advice with my problem, ordered a direct drive motor coupling for my particular model, received the delivery, and called a friend who's good at home repairs and who happens to be dating my sister. He was delighted to comply with our request (her clothes get laundered here) and he had no problem with either the repair itself or the part we ordered. Replaced the hoses, too. He said the new part had been improved over the old one, but everything fit together just like it should. Then I washed her work jeans. Success! I know this isn't what you're asking, but I was so pleased to have the correct part ready to go so he didn't have to mess around. It wouldn't have taken the afternoon, but I had to clean everything that had accumulated debris in 10 years of use as he went.

would not agitate

searched the internet for the problem, saw video on you tube, bought the part & repaired/replaced the couplers. You have to make sure the couplers are all the way on the shafts, so the washer can be reassembled correctly. After it was reassembled, the machine would not go through the cycles. Apparently unrelated, the lid switch had become defective. I ordered the part & fixed the problem. That repair is also on you tube.

Well i'm an auto technician by trade so I just jumped right in without reading or watching anything, but I saw the video and in the days waiting for the part to show up I watched it. I would recommend everyone to watch the video because it is simpler than I made it.Easy repair any mechanical skills at all and you shouldnt ave any trouble.

I have never fixed a washer, but this website made it very easy. I watched the video so there were no surprises. I unpluged the machine and disconnected the water lines and removed the two back screws. The control panel and shell came of very easy, i then tipped the washer on to its backand removed the clamps holding the motor. The motor came out very easy and the coupler was a cinch to put in. After that I reversed the process and then the wife was happy she got her washer back, Iwas happy too because I didnt have to buy a new one.

Found input to gearcase deformed, so new coupler slipped under load. Replaced gearbox. All function restored, but machine banged harshly during spin. Discovered that "skid plate" had shifted during gearbox replacement. Remounted skid plate carefully with pry bar, correcting vibration.

A Good Fit

The most difficult part was aligning the two sides of the coupling. Disassembling the motor from the transmission was a snap. The replacement coupling was of higher quality than the original. It had metal bushings in the center holes, where they interface each driveshaft. The original did not. It was plastic.

You guys are "Awesome" I wish I had known about your site and watched the video's first!!! When my washer started acting up, I tore it down to parade rest trying to figure out why it wasn't spinning! Then I discovered your web site searching for help. Anyhow, it identified my problem, I watched the video on the most likely cause (the Direct Drive Motor Coupling), checked it out, and discovered one of the couplings was cracked and rounded out..... Thanks to you, the washer's fixed and I can't Thank you enough! Sincerely, Terry Kuster P.S. Everyone will know about your Web site. Thanks again!

After watching the video that came with the parts, it was straight forward, very well informative.

metal reinforced coupling

  • Customer: Sammy from Strawberry, AZ
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set

The repair went very well as per the video, however the metal reinforced coupling only went onto the shaft half way. To ensure the coupling was flush with the top of the shaft I has to use a hammer and tamp the coupling onto the shafts. If you left it halfway on the shafts there was no room for the rubber spacer between the couplings. Other wise it operates very well.
