Dont know what you mean by coupling!!, usually the agitator comes loose on these machines inside the drum, to secure this, remove the softener cap in the centre of the drum by pulling, look inside and secure the bolt deep inside, you will need a socket and long extension 15mm I think.

Agitator loose does not swish clothes around .... can't figure out how to remove the agitator in order to see what may have come loosened or if splines are stripped .... how do you remove the agitator ?

Hello, on the style GE washer there is an agitator coupling under the agitator that will sometimes strip out. To repair this remove the agitator by pulling it straight up and out.
TIP: If you can't get your fingers under the agitator, you can slip a belt under the agitator and then pull by that, once the agitator is off you should see a yellow coupling held on by a 7/16 bolt, remove that bolt and pull the coupling up and off the transmission shaft. Sometimes it will be hard to remove and you might need to knock it up with a hammer. Once it is off you should be able to slide the new one back on, bolt it down and push the agitator back on.

Agitator issues

The agitator coupling beneath the agitator needs replacing. It is stripped.
Pull hard on the agitator to pull it off the shaft to expose the coupling. Remove the coupling and replace it with a new one. Replace the agitator.
If the agitator is hard to remove,use a old leather belt under the agitator to pull up on.
Watch your nose when it comes loose.

My frigidaire washer makes alot of noise while on spin cycle like it is off balance, whole machine shakes, adj clothes, still does it.

Couple things you can check that should solve the problem.
First open the lid and look at the agitator, in the enter you should be able to remove the center piece that is on top, then remove the plastic piece that is there until you get to a nut.
Verify the nut is not loose, if it is then tighten it down.
Second ,Your model may have a balance ring that may have came loose or is broken.
Remove the top by unscrewing the 2 screws from the top electrical area of the washer, then remove the 2 clips with a flat head screwdriver.
Unplug the lid switch, then remove the entire cover off of the washer by pulling it back towards you.
Pop the plastic piece off the top of the drum and under that you should find the balance ring (If yours has one) if it does then make sure its not loose or broken.

Good Luck!

Washer does not spin even though water fill and drain properly. Water level presure swith working properly. How do you cehck the capacitor and the motor to make there is power get to each part. Washer is a...

This could be something not related to the electronics. The motor has a coupling that connects the output shaft to the transmission. If you can, check below the washing machine using a flashlight. If there is black rubber dust below the machine, that bushing needs to be replaced. It is worn out...The part is about $20 to $25 depending on where you purchase it.

To replace the coupling, drain the washer, then unplug the power. Tilt it back, then remove the motor to inspect the coupling. You can easily replace the coupling by removing the motor. There are two metal retainers that can easily be snapped loose using a large screwdriver. Pull the motor away from the transmission housing, then remove the existing coupling and install the new coupling.

Once it is in place, clip the motor back in place, tilt the washing machine back down, plug it back in, and VOILA! You are in business!

Good luck!

Replace coupler on kenmore top loader would like diagram

Go to 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.
