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.

No spin cycle

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.

Remove the sides of the washer, motor ran but nothing moved, closer look found drive coupling broke (10 years and it made of plastic) Order a new part from you, arrived very quickly. Install the part 10 min. later it was running.

Never worked on a washer before, so dug around the Internet. A web search engine pulled up a description describing a coupler failure/repair, so was pretty sure it would be a simple/cheap fix. When looking for parts I came across PartSelect, and there the repair descriptions and videos made it simple.

one thing that you do not need to do is to remove the pump from the motor, I tried to remove it as per the instructions but the pump cracked,remove both inlet and outlet hoses from the pump and remove the pump and motor together, don't try to take them apart, you don't need to, thanks

Washing Machine stopped spinning and agitating, clicking/hum noise when lid closed.

Did not know problem or how to access - thought the back came off washer. Typed in symptoms and it pretty much pinpointed the most likely cause. Watched video on how to take it apart (BTW the front and sides come off, NOT the back). Followed the guide, took motor off and sure enough one of the plastic couplers was cracked. Ordered from PartSelect and with regular shipping the cost was under $20 (ordered Tues. night, had it by Thurs.) Installed part - note as someone else said the new piece has metal inserts which make it really snug to go around the drive shaft, but the tip about using an oversized socket and some light taps to get it on worked liked a charm. Put it all back together (getting case back on was toughest part)and its been working fine for the last week - heavy & lite loads. Have to say was thinking the whole thing needed to be replaced (sound & age) but for $20 it was worth the shot...Glad i came here first!
