Hi,

you can try this suggestion.

first unplug machine. you will need to start by taking 2 screws out of the face of the machine. flip face back and unplug the lids witch from cabinet. you will see 2 gold clamps you will need to pop them off and then your cabinet should pull forward and cabinet will come off. at front bottom you will see your pump, take 2 clamps off pump and move to the side and then take wire harness loose from the motor. the motor has 2 clamps holding it in place also pop those off, sometimes there will be a screw you need to take out before the clamp comes off but you will see. soon as motor is off you will see the drive coupler. it has 2 sides to it and a rubber like center. either it has broke teeth on it or the rubber part will be destroyed or where the shaft goes into coupler will be stripped.
thanks,

Started filling, made a loud noise, stopped filling immediately, door wouldn't open. I tried everything to get it to open. Running the spin cycle finally got the door open at the end of the cycle, though...


The washer drain the water if you put on spin. all electronically controlled washer won't unlock the door and or spin if there's water inside the water has to be drained out first.If the basket didn't move(no motor movement) and it finished the cycle, POSSIBLE problem is the motor control board.

Wont spin


Possible fault on the main motor. Use a multimeter to check on the voltage to the motor when the program is on the spin cycle. If there is no voltage then the program controller unit is faulty. If not the motor or the capacitor to the motor must be checked. Also check for free movement of the motor.

If this machine is a Kenmore 417 Sourse (WCI) built washer with a font load,check tech sheet.I had the same problem on a Frigidaire frontload and it was the door latch/lock assembly.These machines can be tricky sometimes.Use tech sheet and make sure lock assembly ohms out ok.

No drum movement during wash/spin cycle, although it fills/drains


brushes need replacing in motor. Usually cheap enough to buy and do yourself.

Kenmore Series 80 top loading washer that doesn't spin or agitate


Unplug machine, remove water pump and motor, behind the motor is a coupler, take broken parts to your local appliance parts store. Costs 16 bucks, replace the broken parts with new ones, reassemble machine. Never ever do a blanket/comforter in your machine again!!

Washer stops mid cycle while filling up and locks the door and reads f51 and we have tried everything from unplugging it to stopping and restarting it nothing works


The F51 error code indicates that the control is not sensing proper motor movement through the signals from the RPS (rotor position sensor) circuit. This can be caused by several different problems. Make sure that you are not overloading the washer. Overloading can cause this problem. A toy or foreign object could be under the washer that is interfering with motor rotation. With the washer empty, spin the basket inside the washer tub to see if it spins relatively easily. If not, you could an item caught between the spin basket and the tub. You could have a wire harness problem causing signals to not be transmitted properly between the RPS and the machine control board. A failed RPS sensor or a failed control board could also cause this problem.
