Unplugged, removed water supply hoses, removed drain hose from washer, laid whole washer on it`s back without removing the cabinet, popped clips off the water pump and laid to side, took two screws out of clips that hold motor on and popped them off with a screw driver, unplugged wiring harness and another single wire on motor and then lifted motor off. Then pried the plastic pieces of the coupling off the the motor and transmission shaft. Cleaned debris off motor and washer, replaced plastic piece to the transmission and set rubber part on plastic. Then replaced new plastic piece on motor and set motor back into bracket and put all parts back on in reverse order. I make it sound hard but was a easy job.

Water drains but tub does not spin

I chose to replace the Direct Drive Motor Coupling before replacing the lid switch because of cost and I like to see how things work. Hint: If the tub does not spin and water does drain, replace the lid switch first. That was the root problem. If you do replace the Direct Drive Motor Coupling, watch the video provided by PartSelect. The video saved hours of tinkering around. Follow the video instructions to the point of tipping the unit over to replace the coupling. There is about a quart of water in the unit even after the drain hose is removed. Either move the washer outside before doing the replacement or locate a sturdy pan to allow water to spill into as you tip the unit over. Lucky for me, there were some dirty towels waiting to be washed that were used to soak up the water. When you replace the coupling, tamp down the replacement piece that goes onto the transmission shaft with a large dowel and hammer. If the motor does not easily go back onto the shaft and you cannot turn the motor by hand, you need to tamp the replacement part down some more. The part ordered was correct and on-line instructions were very helpful.

A Good Fit

  • Customer: Ernest from South Windsor CT
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

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.

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.

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!

First of all I must say thanks guys for your help, the instructions were right on the money. I first replaced the clutch as per the instructions but found out that the problem was the motor coupling ........ It was broken. I ordered it, followed the instructions and I was a hero in my household. Once more thanks guys.

The video installation instruction was clear and very easy to follow. However, after installing the parts and started testing the washer, the water overflowed. It looks like the water level sensor wasn't working. It caused a little flooding in the area where the washer is. I took the control panel apart once more and this time diagnosed the water level sensor and analyzed how it works. After spending almost 45 minutes with, I detached the hose attachment and blew air which caused air bubbles in the inner side of the drum. I bent the hose to hold the air while re-attaching same to the sensor. This fixed the problem and the washer is once more, operating normally. Please include this part to your video instruction. Overall, it took me 8 hours on the project including the cleanup due to overflow.

I watched the video that PartSelect provided on their web site. The instructions were very precise and easy to follow. I watched the video twice and just followed the instructions. I would highly recommend this approach to washing machine repairs. It certainly saved me a lot of money.

Washer was not spinning, but making a loud spinning noise.

Disconnected power. Disconnected hot and cold, and drain hoses and placed in a plastic bucket. Pulled cover off the washer. Tilted washer onto its back. Removed 2 clips holding the pump. Disconnected wire harness from motor and removed 2 clips holding motor starting with lower clip. Removed a screw from the upper clip used for shipping. Set motor aside and removed broken pieces of the motor coupler from motor and transmission. The replacement part had a metal sleeve in the center of each white plastic ring. The old part did not. This required tapping the new ring onto both the motor and transmission shafts with a socket and makes for a tight fit. Reversed the process to put everything back together. Some alignment might be necessary to place motor to transmission. I recomment wearing thin work gloves to avoid nicks from sharp edges. I didn't. Washer is spinning again and sounds a lot better.

I purchased the part from PartSelect because it was very reasonable and it was OEM part. I have never replaced this kind of part on a washer so I figured it would take me a while. But PartSelect supplied a video showing the entire repair and that was the only reason I did not struggle with the repair. I will definitely buy any appliance parts I need in the future from PartSelect. Thanks Don
