Broken motor coupling

  • Customer: Elwin from Midland Mi MI

I unhooked the two motor brackets, dropped the motor down out of the way, separated the coupling into three parts and slid them in place one at a time. I had to tap them a little with the hammer to get them on the shaft. I put the motor back in place and was done. It worked great and took about 20 minutes.

I googled the problem and up popped partselect.com with the part that was probably needed. The part was priced very low and shipped very quickly. After ordering on Tuesday I received the part on Friday. It was rated as being an easy fix. I watched the video provided and followed the video instructions step by step. The only hard part was snapping the motor clip back into place.

The washer failed while I was doing laundry. The first load completed it's cycle and the buzzer sounded. The clothes were very wet indicating that the final spin did not occur. I started the second load and the pump filled the tub but agitation didn't begin. The motor could be heard running freely (

After determining which parts seemed to have failed and locating them on the PartSelect website, I watched the excellent installation video and read some of the customer notes on their repair experiences. I then followed those examples. One thing was different for me. The shaft bushings on the new coupling parts were a tight press fit on the motor and transmission shafts and could not be pushed completely into place with my fingers. After starting them with my fingers I used a 3/4" wooden dowel and light mallet to gently tap the parts the rest of the way on. If this happens to you, be careful to keep the dowel centered directly on the metal bushing and avoid putting pressure on the white plastic(?)coupling body. The washer works like new again.

I first thought that the fan belt came off. Got the cloths out of machine, and tipped on over to look under, where I discovered that there was no fan belt. Looked online for answers, and found that machine was direct drive. Looked around under machine for something damaged or broke. Saw the direct drive coupling was cracked into three pieces. Ordered the part I was 95% sure I needed, and it was at my house in less than 48 hours. Watched a video on how to replace the direct drive coupling. This was amazing and easy to use information. Made me feel like a pro. The video covered everything you could imagine for the repair, step by step. Machine runs now as good as new.

Repair went really well thanks to the video PartSelect had posted with the drive motor coupling. It showed me how to take machine apart to replace the coupling. Loved the step-by-step instructions. Made it so easy for my son and me to do together and I am a female.

Friday night removed back, Electronic controls, and remaining cabinet. Inspected direct drive pump and it was damp. Removed part. Total Time 20 minutes to this point. Spent next 45 minutes on-line trying to order the correct part and get it as soon as possible. Paid for overnight delivery, but it showed up Monday. Installed part then re-assembled Washer in reverse order. Total Time 30 minutes. Tested the Washer. Noticed water was not filling. Turned valves back on. All worked well. Washer is used several times a day. It's now 2 weeks later and still running well. I'm very mechanically inclined and I have an electronics background so it seemed very easy to me. I think anyone could do this, but it may take more time to determine how to disassemble and reasseble by researching it on the internet.

Using the video I was able to remove the outer frame and found the water pump was leaking. Ordered a new part and using the video was able to replace without a problem. Machine works great, no leaks. My son and son-in-law said just replace the machine...well once I found the problem, was an easy fix. The hardest part was lining up the outer frame so the fitting was right. I'm 65 young and yes women you can do it!!

Leaking water pump

Let me start by saying that I only had to wait one day for the new water pump. Awesome! Once I figured out how to accessed the waterpump, the real challenge began. The washer had been leaking for some time and removing the old pump turned out to be more difficult than expected. The bottom clip used to secure the pump was completely rusted. It took some effort to remove the old pump but it finally came off. Once it was removed, I discovered why it was so difficult. The drive shaft from the motor was so rusted that a groove had been worn into it. I ended up using a metal file to smooth off the rust in order to install the new pump. With a bit of coaxing, I was able to install the new pump, re-attach the hoses and re-assemble the machine. It works like a charm now. No more leaking! Yeah!

I lifted the machine up with one hand while lying on the floor and installed the new pump after aligning the motor shaft to the pump. I then snapped the pump onto the motor shaft and added the top and bottom "keeper snaps". That was it.

Water leak coming out front of washer

When water started pouring out of our washer, I removed the pump. A pair of pliars removes the two hose clamps, and there are two clips that you remove with your hands to get the pump off. The pump looked fine, so I took it to the sink, and put some water in it. I then plugged one hose "port" with my hand and blew hard into the other. Water squirted out. There was a fine crack in th eplastic of the pump. I mixed up some 2 part epoxy and put it over the crack. This fixed the problem for a little over a month. Then the pump got more leaks, so I ordered a pump from here, that arrived in 2 days. I quickly replaced it, and it works great.
