Washer will agitate but will not spin can hear noise but no movement drains fine im a plumber so that all checks out


there's a coupling that's in between the motor and gear box,remove the pump,unclip the motor,there might be two screws holding the clips in,on the rear motor shaft you'll see part of the coupling,look inside and you'll see the other half connected to the gear box,use a screw driver and pop that part off,then install the two pieces of the new coupling and the rubber that goes in between the plastic parts,i use a 7/16 nut driver and pump plyers to put the pieces on the shafts,line up the plastic piece put the nut driver in the center and hit the nut driver with the plyers,make sure you get the four rubber spacers and put them back on the four corners of the motor,it's easier to reinstall the motor,if you need any more help let me know,the part number is 285753A

Washing machine fills, but will not agitate, drain or spin


Coupling broken which joins the motor to the gear box. Look and see or listen if the motor is running then if nothing else is working coupling is broke, easy to replace.

Whirlpool Estate top-loading washing not spinning


Hello, No this is not the lid switch this is going to be a broken coupling. Whirlpool are usually direct drive machines, this means they don't have a belt. Instead the transmission is connected directly to the motor via a coupling. This is what a coupleing looks like: 0c6b869.jpg To confirm this pull the machine forward enough that you can lean it back and it will stand back under it's own weight. Wedge something underneath the chasis so it does not fall on you while your accessing the bottom. Go under the Machine and locate the motor, You will see the pump connected to the motor connected to the transmission. 1. Unplug the wire harness from the motor then. 2. Use a screw driver remove the 2 clips holding the pump in place and remove or push the pump out of the way. 3. You will need to remove the 2 screws from the brackets holding the Motor in place with a nut driver. 4. With a screwdriver remove the 2 clips holding the motor in place (be carefull to support the motor as the clips comes off) 5. remove the motor and drop it onto the floor. Now you will see the coupling..one side on the motor the other side on the transmission the rubber connector inbetween. Replace the coupling if broken or worn and reassemble the washer in reverse order. Now you should be all set. Be aware you may smell rubber on the first couple loads this is normal after replacing a coupling. Good Luck!! if you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Mike.
P.s Remember to unplug the power prior to servicing.

Washing machine - Need to replace motor cupling on the kenmore 90 series


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,

Washer will fill up w/water and wont spin. It still goes through all the cycles.


The fault could be caused by several things, 1. it has a blocked air trap, 2.the lid switch is faulty. 3. The motor to gear box coupling has sheared off or the motor is faulty, there is nothing else that can cause this fault. Regards Engineer
