Can't separate the pump from the motor on my Kenmore HD 80 Series
I removed the hoses and the two snap-clips from the pump, but cannot sepatae the pump from the motor. Should the pump simply lift off? Is it because of the leak I have in my pump that has caused some rust on the motor shaft that is preventing the pump from being removed?

don't touch the back,there isn't a belt in kenmore washers and don't touch the back panel,there are white covers on each side of the top panel,pop them off and remove the two phillips screws,one on each side,then flip the panel up,with a screw driver pop the two metal clips,just stick the screw driver in the hole and on top of the clip and push back to the wall and the clip will repease,now in the middle of the clips you'll see the lid switch connector,separate it,open the lid and grab the frame,tilt it up and back at you and remove the frame,on the bottom you'll see the pump,remove the two clips and pull off the pump,then remove the two screws and pop the two clips and slide out the motor,on the back of the motor you'll see the coupling,that's what broke,you need to replace the motor coupling

when empty and off, open the lid and see if you can rotate the inner wash basket by hand. if you can easily, then the clutch is worn. This will prevent the basket from going into a high spin and wringing the clothes out. Replace the clutch by removing the top control panel, removing the clips that hold the cabinet, pull cabinet off, remove drain pump clips and pump, remove motor clips and motor, remove transmission (3 bolts). Now you will have access to the clutch, replace as needed, reverse dissasembly to complete. remember to unplug.
Hello Friend, Yes, I'd say your pump is leaking. Sometimes these pumps wear out a circular shaped hole in the front of pump housing but most of the time the rear seal on the pump goes bad and leaks from there. It's easy to replace the pump on your machine. First, remove the two screws that hold control panel in place and tilt back exposing the two metal clips that hold the cabinet in place. You will see some wires plugged into the cabinet, just unplug them. There are two clips, one on each side. Just pop these clips off and lift cabinet slightly from back and tilt forward. At this point you will be able to completely remove the cabinet. Once you have cabinet removed just set it aside. Now, you can easily remove the pump by snapping off the two spring clips. The pump will slide right off the motor shaft. Please rate my help. Happy to help, Tim.
Hello Friend, Your solution is very simple. You need to replace the motor coupler. It's easy to replace the motor coupler on your machine. First, remove the two screws that hold control panel in place and tilt back exposing the two metal clips that hold the cabinet in place. You will see some wires plugged into the cabinet, just unplug them. There are two clips, one on each side. Just pop these clips off and lift cabinet slightly from back and tilt forward. At this point you will be able to completely remove the cabinet. Once you have cabinet removed just set it aside. Now, just lay the washer on it's back. At this point you will see the water pump, motor, and transmission. Remove the pump by snapping off the two spring clips. The pump will slide right off the motor shaft. Now, remove the two screws that hold the two spring clips attached to motor. Unplug all the wires etc. and then snap the metal clips off motor. Lift motor straight up, it should slide right off. Now you will see the motor coupler. Half of the coupler is on the transmission shaft and the other half is on the motor shaft. There is a rubber center connector ring that connects the two together. Just remove the old coupler pieces by prying under them with slotted screwdriver and replace with new ones. Re-assymble the washer and the problem you are encountering should be solved. Happy to help, Tim.
This is a bad coupling, part # 285753. It is available from timerking.com for $9.99, and other places as well. To replace unplug and lay the machine down on its back, remove the 2 pump clips, and slide the pump out of the way. Then remove the 2 motor clips and remove the motor. The coupling is between the motor and gearcase. Hope this helps!
Most likely you have a bad motor coupler. If you open the console and remove the two brass clips, this will let the front, sides and top all come off as you tilt it forward. At the botom center, you will find two metal clips holding the pump on. Remove. You will find 2 screws holding similar clips holding the motor on. Removed. On the back of the motor, is your coupler. Replace. Then re-assemble.
