Extreme gear noise from broken coupling during spin rinsing

Disconnect power and water lines. Lay the washer on it's back. Remove the nut (300) and washer (305). Rock the motor rotor (215) back and forth while pulling until it comes off the splined shaft. Remove the 3 bolts from the coupling assy (345). Remove the broken coupling (340) . Apply plastic grease to internal spline and gear teeth before reassembling in reverse of above. The machine is engineered to work on easily, however, I would not have needed to work on it if they had made the coupling assembly out of metal. The plastic gear fatigued at the internal spline and cracked apart after only 3.5 years of use.
