You have to access the coupling by removing the housing of the machine,

you can tilt it a little bit to the back so that the motor is in your front.
remove the water pump clamps so that you can remove the pump.

unscrew the screws holding the clamps of the motor.( hold the motor tight, it is heavy)
remove the clamps, the motor will fell..

remove the motor and you can see that the coupling is attached to its shaft.

one coupling goes to the shaft of the motor, the other coupling goes to gear box shafting, and the rubber ring is in between the two coupling.

normally, only one coupling is damaged and you can just replace that coupling. you have the other two parts as spare.

i hope this would solve your problem.

tnx 4using fixya,

Hello; I have a Whirlpool LSR7233DQ0 washer. It will not agitate nor spin; however, I do hear the motor spinning. It will empty the water in the tub. I'm guessing the problem lies in the gear...


it sound like the motor coupling has broke,, you will need to take the pump off of the motor, then remove the motor,, the coupling isa three part piece, two little white three prong pieces, one on the motor and one on the transmission then the black rubber piece that connects them

Hi my washing machine is working properly. The dial that you select the washing programme keeps clicking round so it doesn't spin or wash. You can hear the motor working and go through a cycle but the drum...


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (110.#######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive washers use a "Motor Coupler" between the motor and transmission.

It's used as a fail safe device and consists of three parts.

Two of the parts are the same, plastic units with three prongs that fit on one of the motor output shafts and the other on the transmission input shaft. Between them is a rubber piece with six holes.

The power from the motor is transmitted through the rubber piece to the transmission.

The other shaft on the motor directly drives the pump.

If the motor coupler is broken, or worn, the motor may not be able to send full power to the transmission for agitating or spinning.

See the following for how to remove the cabinet, pump, motor and motor mounting plate to inspect and replace the motor coupler.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137

If the coupler looks damaged, it's a relatively easy fix.

Pry the plastic pieces from the motor and transmission. Some people use a claw hammer but I've found that using a small (6 inch) pry bar works well.

Carefully fit the plastic pieces over the motor and transmission shafts and press them in place (Use a 1/2" of larger socket to put pressure equally around the pieces.

Put the rubber piece on the transmission plastic piece.

Replace the motor mounting plate.

Carefully line up the plastic prongs on the motor based plastic piece to the three un-used holes in the rubber piece. If they don't line up right, the coupler could be damaged.

Mount the motor, don't forget the two screws, put the pump back on the motor and use its' clips.

Put the cabinet back on, don't forget to plug the lid switch back in and re-mount the console.

You should have a three pronged washer, put that on first anyway round, then put the stop motion wheel on and tighten fineger tight, tighten the small screw that should be on the stop motion wheel and tighten a bit more, if it does not tighten up take the stop motion wheel off and put the three pronged washer in a different position.

Starter contacts need replacing,how do I remove starter


You'll have to remove the starter from beneath the vehicle. There should be three wires that need to be disconnected, and three bolts that mount the opposite end of the starter motor to the drive wheel. Remove these three bolts and pull the starter away from the drive wheel and down to remove. You may see a plastic piece that covers one wire, just pull that out and undo the nut that secures the wire. Make sure you remember how to reinstall the wires-the rest of installation is reverse of removal.

Kenmore 90 series mod.# 110.28912791


OK The Kenmore 90 series mod.# 110.28912791 is not hard to work on. The problem on the washer was no agitation or spin.First I took the agitater out of the tub,and put them aside. Then I tilted the washer to get to the bottom of the washer. Inbetween the motor and I gueuss pump there are three pieces that need to be replaced called (motor coupler). I disconnected ac cord from wall outlet, the cold and hot water hoses. I disconnected the wires at the motor one piece and one two wire connection pluss move a small canister with two wires out of the way. Removed three bolts bottom of pump pulled pump and motor out, you have to turn back and forth a little and the whole assembly comes out. there are two screws that hold two clips at side of motor and motor come off easy. You will notice there is a black rubber disc with a plastic white three prong piece on each side. (Remove those pieces install same way ( you need to use something to hit the center of the plastic till it sets in, install black rubber piece six wholes three prongs on one side. Install second white pronged piece on the pump side and also hit center to set. Place pump over motor looking to (make sure) the top three prongs go inside three holes left in the black rubber piece. Once you line and they go inside line the motor to where the for rubber legs sat before put clips back on install the two screws, install shaft back in moving the motor side to side install the three bolts, hook wires plugs under the motor put canister with two wires back hook the two hoses back next to motor, stand washer back up, install agitater back, hook hot and cold hoses back plug back in and test. parts at sears (one hours time start to finish taking your time) keep track of all parts. Make diagram if you need to believe me it was easy and washer works great now. By the way when I took the parts off they did not look broken but were bad because now I have a working washing mashine. ( Good Luck, Wyatt Earp )

York P3HU Gas furnace blower making grinding noise and vibration


If the wheel is rubbing on the housing obviously that's no good. Yes that is one solid piece, it needs replaced. Not an extremely difficult job, toughest part likely getting the wheel off the shaft. Sand exposed shaft and use some lubricant. Before removing motor mark on the housing where the wires are located/ direction they point. Do not forget to tighten set screw upon reassembly. Good Luck!!
