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:
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 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: Our Kitchenaid dryer won't heat up - it's still

Hello, Before you proceed you should understand any service you perform on your dryer could potentially void any warranty, It is your discretion. I wouldn't be too concerned about the unit cycling on & off at the end of a cycle, many dryer's have an automatic "wrinkle guard" feature and that is how they function and some cycle on & off for up to an hour after or until the door is opened. I also am not clear if it is gas or electric soooo...if it's electric, disconnect the vent from the dryer and run a "timed" dry cycle not "auto-dry" without a load and see how it perform's. If it performs ok then you have your problem...poor or blocked venting. On the other hand if it is gas, you should not run the unit without it exhausting outside and consiquently you'll have to wait for a authorized pro. The other thing you want to investigate is how well the washer is spinning the clothes, are they fairly well rinsed before entering the dryer ? Just something to consider, obviously soaking wet is not good for drying in the dryer. Let me know if any of this help's and I'll watch for your response. Good luck and thanks for coming to fixya today. Please rate the info provided positively if helpful and reply to me if not helpful. Thanks again, macmarkus :)

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.

For your current spec hard drives can support up to 400GB. So I would like to suggest using 320 GB hard drives, and I see hard drives with this capacity still available on the market.

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 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.

Jvc everio GZ-MC500 does not recognize High capacity SD

Beyond 2GB SD Card this model can not support. Why? because this model carries the logo SD, where as 2gb is the maximum, although there are some companies manufacturing SD with the capacity of more 2 GB but this is illegal(not standard for SD) do not conform with SD. New models can support HCSD (High Capacity SD) as far as 32GB can be found in the market. Hope this helps

Trace DR 2412 inverter won't run older front-loading washer

IF your washing machine is a conventional model with a common AC induction motor, waveform isn't the problem. Normal starting current for typical AC induction motors is usually 5 to 7 times the rated running current. Even though that current draw only lasts a fraction of a second, it's marginal for a 2.4 kw inverter's surge capacity. The trick of switching on other small loads (preferably resistive loads like incandescent bulbs) before starting the washer may help. Another area to check is your battery cables and connections The inverter pulls a huge amount of current to produce it's max surge output and even a little resistance in the battery circuit may cause the inverter to trip off. If you've got one of the fancy new electronic controlled washers with a D.C. motor, (so called energy saving or high efficiency models) then the waveform may be an issue and a pure sine wave might be needed.
