Motor Coupling Broken

  • Customer: Jeff from Nicholasvile KY
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I followed the 'how to' video, stopping the video when needed to complete a portion of the repair. I was doing the repair in a laundry closet, which took me a little longer, but with the right parts ordered and the instruction video this project was easy and does not take very long.

Tub will not spin

  • Customer: Rick from Terre Haute IN
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
After finding out the tub would not spin, I removed the washer to find broken pieces on the floor. I did a google search on my model number and found that the problem was the direct drive motor coupling (it matched the pieces on the floor). So, I watched the "how to" video and I followed the steps verbatim. I found the coupler missing and the plastic pieces on the drive broken. My order came in quickly (within 48 hours) and my washer was running in 20 minutes after receiving the package. It has been great ever since.

Tub was spinning only part time. Had to have help getting started

  • Customer: Kingsley from Ewing IL
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers, Socket set
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Installed new clutch assembly and while I was at it replaced the Motor Coupling. Actually, I had a good time doing the repair. I am almost 80 years old, so had to have help laying the washer on backside. Got a small stool from which to work (back problems). The only thing I found the least bit difficult was reinstalling the retaining clip for the clutch assembly. The rest was a piece of cake. Were I to do the same repair now, it would take less than 30 minutes. Washer works like new now. Very proud of what I was able to accomplish. Of course, need to watch the repair video so you will know where to start.

Bad Motor Coupler

  • Customer: Hilary from Gainesville FL
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers, Socket set, Wrench(Adjustable)
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
So, the instructional video was great but be warned that you REALLY need to hammer the part into place. Basically hammer it into place so that the end of the shaft that it goes on is flush with the plastic piece of the coupler on both ends. Otherwise, you'll put the washer together and run a load and it'll squeal and smell like burning rubber. We had to take it apart like 3 times before we got it on there securely enough. We would then run an empty load and it would be fine but as soon as we would add clothes the squealing and burning would ensure. So, my advice is to hammer it in well and save yourself the time and struggle!

Washer woulp not spin, brake cam driver not like video

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers, Socket set, Wrench set, Wrench(Adjustable)

changed parts easily, following the video. Problem was the BRAKE CAM DRIVER, the plastic piece that fits around the shaft near the drum. The old one was visibly torn up, the pegs worn off, the whole thing worn down. The problem with the repair was the video showed an "E ring" holding it on and my washer had no E ring, had nothing hold it. It just sat there. Installed it anyway, although I was worried it was too loose. Sure enough there was a problem. it spun initially then started that ugly clicking noise. turned off washer immediately, disassembled again, and prayed. I found a large flat washer to take up the slack between the clutch and the plastic brake cam driver, reassembled, tightening the nuts a fair bit tighter than before. both the nuts on the transmission and the nut on top the agitator. works perfect!

Followed the video and instructions included with part. At first we did not think the repair was successful, but after several small loads were run, squealing stopped. The washer is 16 years old and so far is running like new. We certainly appreciated the great customer service. The part was delivered in less than 24 hours.

Unit did not spin

  • Customer: David from Denver NC
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Pretty simple task, and pretty much followed hints in the video provided by the web site. Unit worked fine after replacing the parts. Most awkward part of the job was getting cabinet back into position to secure to the base. A bigger working space or a second pair of hands would have helped in securing cabinet. Only took over two hours (working slow) because cabinet kept sliding out of position while trying to secure.

Would not spin

  • Customer: Albert from Poughquag NY
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers, Socket set, Wrench set

Video's on parts select are a big help. Just followed the instructions. Only slight problem was the coupling's do not slide easily onto the shafts. I had to use a little lubricant and put a wood block across the opening and tap with a hammer. Maybe a little more than a tap. Also when I was ready to test the repair I found the washer would not stop filling. After much checking I found out on another repair site that the shutoff requires a certain water pressure to work properly. I hadn't opened the faucet fully. Once I did everything worked properly.

metal reinforced coupling

  • Customer: Sammy from Strawberry AZ
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
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.
