Capacity of my Kitchenaid washer model KAWS777EZO

I am in the market for a new washer, but I want one with the same capacity (or more) as my current washer (Kitchenaid KAWS777EZO) which only says "Super capacity PLUS/Heavy duty." I have looked all through the manual that came with it, and I cannot find the capacity. Help?
Thank you, Tom Hayes

    We also had a KAWS777EZO from KitchenAid. We called KitchenAid at 800-422-1230 to ask about the capacity of that machine. They told us it was a 3.0 cubit feet capacity. That is not even large to today's standards which offer 3.9 and 4.7 cubic feet washers!

SOURCE: kenmore 90 plus series: heavy duty super capacity won't agitate

this is the site to find out how to fix your washer.
you have a broken drive coupling.
it probably wont agitate or spin, but will fill and drain.
you need to remove 2 screws from the control panel, hinge it back and then remove the 2 brass colored clips that hold the cabinet to the base. once you do then pull the entire cabinet forwards to a 45 degree angle and pull it off the base.
then pull the 2 clips off pump and then 2 more on the motor. that will allow you to get to the drive coupling. you will find it to be broken.
replace it with part number 285753a for about 15-20 bucks.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Ultimate Care Heavy Duty Washer will not spin

It sounds like you have a broken motor coupling. This is a very inexpensive and simple repair.

If the washer will fill and drain, but won't agitate or spin, you may have a broken motor coupling. The noise of the motor engaging, lack of agitation and ability to still drain are the usual symptoms. This is a common fail item with this model washer through normal wear and tear. Newer versions of the coupler are more resilient and resist breaking. The following link explains how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385252-replacing_motor_coupling_whirlpool_top
The motor coupling is located between the drive motor and the transmission and takes the place of a drive belt. They do wear out and can break. The replacement part number is included in the link I provided and is an improved upgraded coupling that is more resilient. It should last longer. If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

A replacement coupler can be purchased on line at appliancepartspros.com for about $11. Just use the part number in the link and "Search by Part Number" for your search criteria.

SOURCE: I have a Kitchenaid super capacity 14 cycle Quiet

you may have 2 problems, first check the lid switch for a broken or burnt wire, part #3949237 if needed. also, take a look at the direct drive coupler on the shaft of the motor, it is made up of 3 pieces and it may have become damaged. hope this helps.

SOURCE: Hello, I love my

All you need to do, is see if you can find a Pressure Switch available at a Spares Depot. This is the problem with your Washing Machine. I do not know if you will still be able to get one though. The pressure switch notifies the Timer/Module when there is sufficient water in the Tub to commence washing.

Hope this helps.

Do I keep my old Kitchenaid extra capacity or keep the new GE GTWP1000


The GE has a capacity of 3.3 cubic feet. You did not list the model of the kitchenaid. Make sure the GE was stored correctly because if it might have lost oil or gotten brittle belts or gaskets. Also it might have frozen.

Washer Won't Spin / Drain. Need New Belt or Pump? Need Diagram?


based on feedback that i received on the forum, i realized that the washer doesn't have a belt (it's a direct drive machine). then, i replaced the motor coupler, which was a lot easier than i thought when i posted this question.

detailed instructions can be found on an excellent post by jsrock516 on fixya.com. even though the washer is labeled 'kitchenaid,' look for whirlpool, top-load washer, tips. then, search for replacing a motor coupler.

jsrock516's instructions look complicated, but they're really just a very detailed, step-by-step guide written so you don't need any pictures. read through them before you start, and then follow each step as needed. great stuff.
