Hanger on motor broke and destroyed the coupling

Turned machine on it’s back after removing the hose that goes to the drain, removed the bottom dust guard, I removed the hoses (take a picture before removing things so you know how to orient them when putting it back together) and drained the water first but this is not necessary (there are YouTube videos where they suggest removing the outer case, unclipping the pump and then removing the motor. This would be optimal as you don't need to deal with the water running out of the washer when you remove the hoses). Removed the 4 electrical connectors (multi-plug, 1 x two prong plug and 2 capacitor connector plugs) One of the motor hangers were broken on my machine, I removed the other one and then slipped the motor out. Removed the broken hanger and securing screws and the old rubber grommets, slipped the coupling out (had to leverage out with a large flat screwdriver). Installed new coupling and rubber on the gearbox side, 4 grommets on the motor and the other coupling on the motor. Inserted the hangers on the gearbox side and then mounted the motor. (it is easier if you turn the washer on its back so the drum moves down and gives you more room to drop the motor in from the top), clipped the motor hangers on and fastened the two metal screws, mounted the pump and hoses and reinstalled the dust guard. Turned it right side up and tested before dragging it back into the laundry. Washing again like it did when first bought it in 1998. I would recommend that when a coupling brakes, replace it as well as the hangers and grommets to make sure it has no room for play. Mine broke way too quick as I did the last coupling about a year ago, problem I think was that I had the wrong grommets causing excessive vibration and wear.

Followed instruction found on line, they were very helpful and very well done by tech. I have a back ground in appliance repair mostly ge. I find the design of whirlpool washing machine was very well done, the repair of all major parts was easy and simple. Best designed washer I have ever worked on. Delivery of my needed parts was fast.

I watched the on line video for installing the repair kit and it was simple! I spent just under $36 and saved $800 buying a new washer. It runs quieter and more efficiently then it has in awhile. PS - I am a woman!

I looked at the fine parts blow-up drawing available on internet. It was immediately clear the teeth had worn smooth on the cogs, and replacing them would fix the problem. I placed the order for the three parts sets I felt would be useful, and the most amazing thing happened, The parts arrived the next day, they were all in the package they all fit, and I was washing clothes within and hour. The information on line was understandable and accurate and the speed of delivery was outstanding.

followed the tutorial from partselect--remove fabric softener dispenser(just pull up) remove bolt from agitator and take it off agitator--remove old parts and replace with new ones--reassemble---done.--- took longer to write this almost. Probably saved me 100 dollars. Almost anyone could do this repair if you can read and watch a video.
