    Well, it would help if i had ever seen the inside of a washing machine before! haha

    Im a fix-it queen....but this is my first experience with a washer. :)

    I looked at it and i dont see a pump anywhere on it, but that clear tube is attached to a lump on the lower, outside of the plastic tub (is that the pump?)

    I just cant remember where i pulled the other end of the hose from....Im a full time college student and this washer was a 2 day project.....I shouldve taken notes! :)

    Thanks for your help!! :)

    Yes that is the pump. Then the hose goes all the way up top at the control board. You are going to have to remove the top cover to get behind your knobs to get the hose plugged in

Just had machine to a repairman because it wouldn't spin. Well now it spins, but when water runs in it won't cut off and agitate.

flip up the lid and check the clear plastic hose going to the pressure switch.that's what shuts the water off.if that line is off or has a hole in it the washer will just keep filling and overflow.he must of put a new motor coupling in and the hose could of fell of the pressure switch when he put the washer back together

Washer agitates but will not spin drain spin or fill

Well I have a Roper Top Load Washer, bought it in 1998 ,no problems til back 6 years ago we had someone come fix it. My problem was the same wouldn't drain or spin. The problem was it was clogged, in the front when you lift off the washer casing theres a white piece connected to to tubes that drain. well there was my daughters pair of underwear in there and a couple small socks. He took them out put it back together and worked ever since. Until earlier tonight we had same problem so we took it apart ourselves and found my boyfriends sock in there took it out and put it back together and works great again. So far so good. Hope this helps Good luck. Tammy

My washer did not spin agitate or pump. When I

you could have 2 problems,, first one- the motor bearings could be locked up-or the motor could be burnt--if so you would smell it-- could have something logded in side the pump fan--the older models you can take apart & dislodge the item--the newer ones have to replace the whole pump..

I took apart my kenmore seires 90 washer not knowing what i was doing. i took out the tree bolts holding the transmission on and a c-clip holding what apears to be brake parts. how do i get it back...

See the following:

The brake is a part of the spin tube.

The clip you removed is probably for the clutch.

Also see the following Whirlpool Service and parts manuals for their top load, direct drive washers.




I' d also suggest the Sears parts site.

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Welcome to the wonderful world of washer repair.

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II drum does not spin.

Depending on your washing machine model, the drum and motor are connected by 2 plastice yellow circular pieces, with a black rubber washer in the middle with holes where the pegs or rods go into. The 2 plastic circular pieces have 3 pegs or rods if you will, that connect to the black rubber washer via 3 holes. Sometimes, one or both of the 2 plastic circular piece pegs get broken off or the rubber washer cracks and breaks apart, so that the motor will not turn the drum. If thats the case, you can purchase the 2 circular pieces and black washer piece as a set.

Whirlpool toploader gearbox/clutch removal

Last Night I took the machine apart to find clutch/brake assy ok gearbox was also ok then I noticed shaft coupling was different than new part I had in stock, new part made totally of nylon, old part fitted to machine has steel insert built into nylon. this was not fully located onto motor shaft and the first 1/4" of motor shaft had been stripped back to round ( no flat faces) also inside the steel lined bore of the nylon coupling had been worn to round.I replaced with new coupling of nylon and ensured both nylon parts fully pushed home onto motor shaft and gearbox shaft with any freeplay / gap being allowed in the rubber drive link. This has worked for now but expect trouble in future with worn motor shaft.
