Re: Cannot get new motor coupling installed
You will have to remove the motor to get access. Easiest way is to start by removing the cabinet. With the cabinet off you will have access to the motor mounting clips which will allow you to remove the motor and install the new motor coupling.
Let me know if you need a walk through. Good luck!

Between the motor and the transmission is a rubber piece with each side -- plastic drivers - on the shafts. Sounds like you need that new coupler. They are designed the take the jolts of the start and stopping but they wear out. You have to pull out the machine from the wall. Tilt it back and you can see the joint between the motor and the trans. You may see debris on the floor too from the disintegrating of the coupler
On top of the motor is the pump with metal clips. Use a screw driver to remove the clips and pull the pump off - let it hang. Next, get your small socket set out and take out the 1/4 inch screw head on the motor clips. Use the driver and remove the clips holding the motor to the plate and the transmission. The plastic drivers and the rubber grommet will now be separated. Note how the motor is mounted on the plate with rubber grommets. Remove the motor. Use a screw driver if necessary to get the broken parts off the shafts of the trans and motor. Replace the drive coupling and reassemble the unit. An easy fix
It is likely the coupling device that connects the motor to the transmission. These things are a tri-part plastic unit that frequently disintegrates. Refer to: http://ww.fixya.com/support/r385252-replacing_motor_coupling_w... by jsrock516. This is an instruction for replacing these coupling pieces. If helpful, please give him a pat on the back. Hope this helps get you running!
Go to searspartsdirect.com. You will have to put in the model number to do a search. The search will produce an exploded view along with the parts list and prices. If you're wanting to replace the coupling; the easiest approach is to lay the washer face down. Remove the motor mounts and replace the coupling. The couplings are plastic and fit tightly to both shafts. Pry coupling loose from motor and washer with a screwdriver. Install one of the coupling halves on each shaft. Sit the rubber center section on to the motor half of the coupling and install motor and motor mounts.
YOUR "DRAIN MOTOR PUMP" is clogged with all that rubber particules, if your handy with tools , you can fix this one , open the washer , locate the MOTOR PUMP , (just follow where the drain hose is connected), remove , inspect and clean all the debris and lints and stuff collected , replaced and youre good to go , AJ
