Kenmore 90 series Coupler replacement

I believe the coupler on my Kenmore 90 series washer needs to be replaced. It fills with water and drains, but does not spin or agitate. There is a small pile of black ''dust'' under the washer, which I was told means that the coupler needs to be replaced. I have a kenmore 90 series model 110.26901690. If it is the coupler, what model do I need?

It appears your coupling has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

The washer stopped all of the sudden. It was full of water, but even when I unplugged the washer and recycled the machine, it would not fill up. It makes a humming noise when I try to start the machine,...


If it fills and drains then I would suspect the motor coupler is bad, if it's a direct-drive washing machine. Most of them are, kenmore 80 or 90 series.

Kenmore 80 series washing machine fills but wont agitate draqins but wont agitste or spin


My bet is on the drive coupler. if you can here the motor run and the machine will drain water then 99.9% it will be the drive coupler.

This coupler is behind the motor and is what conects the motor with the transmission.

Kenmore 90 series will drain but not spin


Hello,

You definitely have a broken motor coupling. This is the piece that connects the motor to the trasmission. The pump is connected directly to the motor on the other side opposite of the coupler. When they break, the water will drain but the washer will not spin.

Here is a repair manual that will help you replace the motor coupler.

If you have anymore questions please ask. This is an inexpensive repair and something you can do yourself. Just refer to the coupler in the manual and you won't have any issues.

Thanks
