Washing machine fills, but will not agitate, drain or spin


Coupling broken which joins the motor to the gear box. Look and see or listen if the motor is running then if nothing else is working coupling is broke, easy to replace.

I guessed my motor coupling on whirlpool washer needs replaced; now that i have the part, i began to replace it, but the existing one is not broken; is it the problem?


Was the motor working before, but no spin action.

Make sure the plastic tripod like pieces for the coupling are not worn out on the shaft of the motor or the gear box. Sometimes they round out on the shaft and slip.

If they are O.K. then you might have a problem with your gearbox, neutral/break kit.

My washer is not spinning all the water out. for the most part the water is gone but the clothes are soaken wet still... why


Hi

I am assuming you have a Whirpool top loader machine.

If so, a common item on these is the motor coupling which wears out or breaks. The coupling joins the motor to your gearbox, which in turn spins the drum. The couplings are two plastic tripod shape pieces which sit on the shaft of the motor and gearbox. These are joined together on a rubber wheel with 6 holes. The plastic pieces tend to wear out or designed to break if the load is excessive, so that you do not damage the motor or the gear box.

In most cases the couplings are perishable items and need replacement. Unless you are unlucky and something has happened to your gearbox.

Good Luck.

Washer motor spins but the TUB does not (intermittent)


If the motor is running and the tub is not spinning you must remove the motor and inspect the drive coupling.
One of the 2 plastic pieces could be stripped or cracked.
If the drive coupling is intact, proceed to the clutch on top of the transmission.
Replace the clutch linings.

Won't spin or agitate


Motor to transmission coupling broken. Original WP parts are ruber and plastic. The plastic appears to be a common break part. An improved replacement part is available with metal inserts.

To replace:
1. Unplug washer from power.

2. remove 2 screws on front of machine below dials. This allows you to flip the knob box out of the way.

3. Disconnect 3-prong electrical connector.

4. Remove springs holding outer case to back of unit. A flat screwdriver will make this easy.

5. Tip outer case of washer forward then rock the case side-to-side to dislodge it from the front seat. Remove outer case and set aside.

6. Disconnect the electrical connection to the pump and the 2 connectors to the capacitor.

7. Remove retaining clips from the pump with a flat screwdriver. Do not remove hoses from pump.

8. Remove retaining clips from motor. These should be secured by a screw which will need to be removed first. Remove the top clip first and the motor will tilt down.

9. The coupling is comprised of 3 parts, two plastic gears with legs which slip into the black rubber connector. One gear fits onto the shaft from the transmission or "gearbox", the other fits onto the shaft coming from the motor. One is probably broken and there will likely be black debris from the rubber connector. This lets you know for sure this was your problem. The gears will need to be removed by prying them off or use of a gear puller.

10. The replacement part runs $15-20 and should be in stock at a good appliance parts center or it can be found on the interent but you may have to wait a day so plan your repair accordingly.

11. Install the gears on both shafts first. A 3/8"+ socket and extension can be used to tap the gears onto the shaft fully. Once the gears are installed, place the rubber connector on one gear and lift the motor into position to fit the coupling back together.

12. Reinstall the retaining clips on the motor and the screws on the clips.

13. Reinstall the pump and its retaining clips.

14. Reconnect the 2 connectors to the capacitor and the electrical connection to the pump.

15. Reinstall the outer case by first setting the front edge into position on the frame and tilting it back into position.

16. Reinstall the springs holding the outer case to the back of the washer. The flat screwdriver will help again.

17. Reconnect the 3-prong electrical connector and flip the knob box forward into postion.

18. Reinstall the 2 screws holding the knob box on the front of the washer.

19. Plug the washer back in and test the washer by setting it to the spin cycle to see that it spins.

20. For the do-it yourselfer it should take an hour to an hour-and-a-half plus time to and from the parts store.

Washer does not engage in spin cycle


could be a stuck gear box. this gear box could have a mechanical problem on the spin cycle.
it usually turns the reverse rotation if it wants to spin.

check the pulley of the gear box, rotate it in one direction for twenty revolutions. see if it agitates. then next turn it on the other direction and observe if it is binding or stuck.

if you can remove the gear box and check the mechanical gears inside, maybe you can find the problem and replace the part.

tnx 4 using fixya,
