Question about KitchenAid KAWS850LE Top Load Washer
The washer was working yesterday and we heard a noise while it was spinning and we opened the door and the spinning started to stop so we closed the lid and it continued to run. Later the washer would function properly until it came to the spin cycle and would not spin? The washer is only 2-3 years old, top load.
Here's a video. http://repair2000.com/coupling.html

Hi, so you have a kitchinaid washer that is not spinning and making a horrible noise.
More than likley you have a bad drive coupler. Which is located if you tip the unit back. not all the way, just enough to see the inerds of the washer. I usually prop it against the wall. There is your pump and attached to the pump is your motor. Between the motor and the transmission is your drive coupler. take the pump and motor off to gain acces to this part. there are 2 clips for the pump and 2 clips for the motor. usually 2 screws holding the clips for pump 2. Take the motor off and you will see the coupler. there is a grommet that goes between the 2 pieces sometimes that gets worn out and you will see black soot on the ground. That's a good indicationg that the coupler is the culprite
