I recently replaced the broken drive coupling on my whirlpool washer but it still won't agitate or spin. Could there be an electrical issue with the washer lid switch?


If it sound like the motor is running and you get no agitate or spin but it drains, and the couple is new, then you have a bad transmission. If the washer makes a hum like the motor is jamb, then look inside the pump. If the washer make's no sound at al after fill then the lid switch in normally the problem, but secondary problems could be faulty timer or motor.

My washing machine will fill but it will not agitate or spin. It makes a looud humming noise like it is trying to work. It is a Kenmore 70 series Model # 20702


Possible that the motor is faulty or is stuck and makes the noise. it will be good to remove and check the motor after disconnecting the power cord. Also it is possible that the CAPACITOR is faulty and so the motor HUMS. Please check this out.
Please check if the belt or the drive is struck and so the motor is jammed.

I have a Kenmore top loading large capacity washer model 1028882791. It began washing as usual then began to making a loud humming sound. The agitation stopped. It only makes a loud humming sound. I...


The humming sound is coming from the drive motor running but unable to drive the agitator nor the basket to spin. The drive motor is definitely running as the drain function works because of the fact that drain pump is directly coupled with the rear spline of the motor. The drain pump works in either direction as long as the motor runs. The problem is obviously a broken motor coupler which transfers the mechanical energy of the motor to the transmission. The solution then is to replace the broken coupler. Click on the link below for the detailed step-by-step procedure in replacing the motor coupler.

Whirlpool washer sm 8280867 - agitator wont turn but sounds like motor does?


sounds like the drive belt has slipped off. Does it try to go through a full cycle? Can you manually rotate the agitator or is it seized. Is the electric motor running, or does it just hum? empty the drum, unplug it and open up the back. Look for a belt that is hanging. Good luck

Whirlpool Duet Washer won't spin


Sounds like the whirling noise is the pump, pumping. Does it drain at all? Check the drive belt and make sure that it is not broken. This system uses a drive belt with a clutch system to agitate back and forth. The clutch system could be bad as well.

This might not be a cheap fix, these are the main components of the system
