If you are talking about the motor coupler, it is located behind the drive motor. You will need to unplug the machine, remove the drain pump, disconnect the wire connectors to the drive motor, then remove the clips that hold the drive motor in place. The coupler consists of two plastic pieces with three prongs (one piece is on the drive motor, one on the transmission) with a rubber bushing in between. I don't know what your original problem is, so I hope this helps you at least find what you were looking for. Let me know if I can help any further.

Doesn't move into the rinse or spin cycle

You have a bad coupler. This is very common but not to worry. This is a direct drive machine and there are very few things that go bad on them. One is the coupler, another is the water pump. Other than these, nothing else hardly ever goes bad on them.
Now for the coupler, It's located between the motor and transmission. You will need to remove the case. Once you have, you only need to un clip the water pump and then the motor. You will then see the coupler. If you haven't been inside one of these, you don't get in through the back. You will take a screw out of each end of the console. Pull forward and flip back. Now un clip the clips on each corner under the console. Unplug the wire under the console. Now pull forward on the case, tilting it toward you and pick up. You are now inside the machine. The water pump it at the bottom. Good luck.

Kenmore 70 Series Washing Machine Drains, But Won't Spin

Yes sir, a bad motor coupler could cause the machine not to spin. You did the right thing in checking out the lid switch and the pump first. It sounds as if the motor coupling is worn and may be slipping. I will attach a link to a video that may assist you. Hope this helps and best wishes.

Water fills up, nothing happens at all until the end of the cycle and the water drains. Fixable?

Maytags have both belt and direct drive washers. UNPLUG machine. No numbers for model... If it is a belt drive machine you should inspect the belt for damages (broken, worn out or off the pulleys) and tension replace if needed. If it is a direct drive it is probably the drive coupler. From below you can remove the pump and motor by removing the strapps that clamp them together. pump first, they just pull off after unstrapping them. The coupler has three parts and comes as a repair kit. The coupler prongs and or the rubber should be obviously broken or worn out if it is the problem. Replace with new parts and reassemble... Yes fixable in about an hour. Online parts for about $14.00.

Kenmore washer, 110.22722100, won't spin

It may be the coupler. see my link to sears parts for exploded view. coupler is number 13. The coupler is behind the motor and will need the main cover (case) removed to replace it. Inspection is also easier with the case removed. It's an $18.00 part and a bout $90.00 in labor to hire it done. I can help.!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=110.22722100&pop=flush at this link choose BRAKE/CLUTCH/GEARCASE/MOTOR/PUMP

Whirlpool washing machine (model LLR 9245 B) does not work

If it's a top loader, the coupler is broken. It's located between the motor and the gearcase. If you put it in spin and hear the motor run, this is your problem. It drains because the pump is mounted on the opposite side of the coupler and will be un-affected

Motor makes loud rattling noise during rinse cycle

could be the coupler and the only way to truely check it is to take the pump, then the motor off. But it seems strange to me that you say it works fine. Is it spinning? usually when the coupler breaks it sounds horrible and usually will not spin but it will drain.I would check the coupler again.

Did you adjust the therm coupler to the flame correctly, even a little bit off can keep the pilot from sustaining.

Kenmore 24642 Top Load Washer Problem

If this is a top load washer, more than likely you have a broken motor coupler.  Be sure the unit is unplugged before starting any repair.  You have to remove the console hold down screws (may have to remove the console cover caps to get to them, or they may be in the back).  Pull the console towards you then up and fold over the top of the washer.  You will see 2 gold colored clips, pop them out, then remove the lid switch wire harness plug.  Fold the cabinet top towards you, and remove the cabinet.  You will see the pump lower center.  Remove the two clips, and swing the pump out of the way.  Unplug the motor wiring harness.  Remove the two clip hold down screws, then unclip the motor hold down brackets.  The motor will now fall (be sure to hold securely) and pull motor out.  You will see the motor coupler on the end of the motor, a round rubber coupler, and another drive coupler in the hole on the transmission.  You will see the prongs on the plastic drive parts that go into that rubber part.  Most of the time, these will break off.  Remove everything, then reinstall (be sure to drive the couplers flush with the shafts), line up motor/rubber/transmission shafts, and reinstall everything.  Let me know if you need further help or information.  Part number for motor coupler is 285753A (Sears, APW, FSP, Whirlpool #'s).  You can also usually find these on ebay, but they arent that expensive (maybe $10 to $15).  Good Luck!!!!   Jim
