I Googled "washer would not spin" and came upon the PartSelect YouTube video on replacing the motor coupling. Since this seemed easy enough (and I'm a 40-year-old Mom), I decided to take the washer apart as the video instructed just to see if I could find anything obviously broken or out of place. Low and behold, the rubber gasket around the coupling was broken and indicated the coupling probably was too. I ordered the part through the direct link on the YouTube video and easily put the new coupling on and VOILA! The only thing I'd recommend differently is that you leave the pump alone. It doesn't need to come off to get to the coupling. After wrestling with trying to remove the pump, I left it in place, but not before unknowingly damaging it. I had some rust build-up in there and it made the fit very tight and cracked the part/sleeve the motor drive plugs into. When the washer was reassembled I found I'd caused a leak. But...no biggie. I decided to replace pump, too. Hey, now I know how to! :) Just received that part yesterday and VOILA! It's amazing what you can accomplish with the internet. Don't be afraid of this task, ladies (and gentlemen).

Your video was very helpful in showing steps for repair so I didn't have to discover how to disassemble. The old Direct Drive Motor Coupling had three broken couplers on one side and a cracked center on the other. New Direct Drive Motor Coupling was a much improved design that should last even longer than original. The couplers metal sleeves and overall thicker part was what original should have been.

the couplings were broken

I took apart the cover of the washing machine, remove the back, and disconnected the hoses , also disconnect the controls,remove the pump and the motor,which are ben hold by two brackets, then proceed to remove the old parts and insert the new ones, the only problem is that they fit too tight and I used a round tool to insert the new ones, after that i put everything together and bingo, the machine is working already.

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.

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.

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!

After alot of helpful advise from you guys I replaced coupling water pump clutch, and the problem was still their. Then I tested motor capacitor and it appears dead. So I should receive new one tomorrow and hopefully success! I turned machine over and oil leak..so that's where the string with hose and air needle come in handy to put 90weight oil in through breather hole in gear case.

Followed website instructions, worked for a couple days, appears it needs clutch or possibly transmission(red oil present)

Turned out to be two problems. The washer would not spin but it would drain. Secondly, it did not agitate.

After watching the videos on how to complete the repairs, I ordered the parts. That next weekend I watched the videos again and from start to finish I was done in just under 1 hour. The most difficult part was getting the cabinet back on. The total cost to me was less than $45. Sure beats $600 plus for a new washer. And the next time, I'll order the double action lubricant for the agitator from Part Select. Buying that at the local appliance center was costly.

I followed the video on replacing the direct drive coupling. It was easy to follow and gave step by step instructions for screw locations, fastener and part removal and installation.

Using the video that was supplied with my confirmation of my order. I followed the video to the "T" and everything went great. That is very helpful to have those videos. Who keeps their manuals for 10 years or more. I think the repair even took me less time than the video estimated. I would definetly order from this company again. Sears wanted 3 times the price and 15-16 days longer to get the part. I ordered the part on Sunday and had it Tuesday.

Simple and quick. 1) Unhooked water pipe connections on the back of the washer, 2) Unscrewed the two screws holding the head(the switch,dials panels)that also hold the back panel and popped two clips hold the head to the outer cover, 3) unhooked the electric swich harness and tilt the head panel backward over the back cover, 4) slide the washer outer cover housing, 5) leaned the washer drum and motor on it's back, 6) unscrewed the small screws holding pump clips and removed both clips, then pull the pump straight up, then did the same to the screws and clips holding the moter. Took the direct coupling and fit them into the shaft...installing is just reversed...Washer tested working perfect.

Super easy repair for my 20 year old washer. I have a really small laundry room and was worried about how much of an ordeal this would be. I had just enough room to remove the housing and get to the motor assembly without putting the machine on its side. The repair was just as shown in the video; 2 clips for the pump, 2 screws and 2 more clips to separate the motor from the transmission. I installed the new coupling and was doing a load of clothes in less than 30 minutes. Great service, fast delivery and low price. I will be coming back to PartSelect for my next repair.
