Hi, the part you need is a coupler. Here are the instructions for this repair: Normal 0 Removing the cabinet. UNPLUG the washer. There are two screws holding the control panel to the cabinet. Most models the screw are in front but, some models have the screws in back. They are on each end. Now raise the control panel up and let it rest on the hinges. Unplug the lid switch harness and locate the clips on each side (bronze in color) and release them.
Now the cabinet will lift off the frame and you can set it aside.

How to replace a coupler:
Now that the cabinet is out of the way, remove the pump from the motor and set the pump off to the side. Remove the two screws holding the clips on the motor and remove the clips. Unplug the motor harness and on some models you wil need to unplug the capacitor.
Now you will need to replace all three parts to the coupler. I use a ½” socket and a small hammer to force the coupler onto the motor and transmission shafts. Put the rubber part onto the coupler half on the transmission and then line up the post on the motor shaft with the holes on the rubber part and it should go on ok. Put the clips that hold the motor in place and plug in the harnesses.
Put the pump back on and the clips to hold it in place. Set the cabinet back on the frame. Make sure the lip on the front cabinet is under the front rail of the frame. Ease the cabinet on the frame making sure the two rear sides of the cabinet set down on the tabs of the frame.
Put the two clips back on that hold the cabinet and plug the lid switch back in. Fasten the control panel down and you are all set.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks

Vic

Want go a spin cycle after rinse


If your washer won't spin nor aggitate, then you have a broken motor coupling.
It's a rubber peice that couples the motor and the tranny.

You can verify this by putting it on spin and listening for a rattling sound.
Best of luck.

Washer wants to aggitate, but needs some hand help in the beginning .A little plastic type grinding noise here and there when trying to spin clothes around,(motor couplerW/ rubber in middle ?)


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Look in the section for the motor, pump gearcase and you'll see the Motor Coupler.

Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive washers use a "Motor Coupler" between the motor and transmission.

It's used as a fail safe device and consists of three parts.

Two of the parts are the same, plastic units with three prongs that fit on one of the motor output shafts and the other on the transmission input shaft. Between them is a rubber piece with six holes.

The power from the motor is transmitted through the rubber piece to the transmission.

The other shaft on the motor directly drives the pump.

If the motor coupler is broken, or worn, the motor may not be able to send full power to the transmission for agitating or spinning.

See the following for how to remove the cabinet, pump, motor and motor mounting plate to inspect and replace the motor coupler.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137

If the coupler looks damaged, it's a relatively easy fix.

Pry the plastic pieces from the motor and transmission. Some people use a claw hammer but I've found that using a small (6 inch) pry bar works well.

Carefully fit the plastic pieces over the motor and transmission shafts and press them in place (Use a 1/2" of larger socket to put pressure equally around the pieces.

Put the rubber piece on the transmission plastic piece.

Replace the motor mounting plate.

Carefully line up the plastic prongs on the motor based plastic piece to the three un-used holes in the rubber piece. If they don't line up right, the coupler could be damaged.

Mount the motor, don't forget the two screws, put the pump back on the motor and use its' clips.

Put the cabinet back on, don't forget to plug the lid switch back in and re-mount the console.

Maytag mavz757aww will fill but not spin


take a wet dry shop vac and attach it tothe end off the drain hose and remove all the water.once the water is removed move the washer away from the wall. tilt it back and look under the front you should see the drain pump and motor remove the two black hoses and look for anything stuck in the drain pump.
then look for a black rubber piece with two white plastic pieces on both side if this is broken then replace it this is your transmsiion coupler.
if there is nothing wrong with either one of these items then you may need to rpelace the lid switch.

Drum doesn't spin or agitate. Only drains. Timer works.


It doesn't spin If your washer won't spin, check these: It doesn't pump or spin If it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows: If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt. If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. It doesn't agitate If your washer doesn't agitate, check these: Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, the washing machine may not agitate or function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. Motor coupler Many washers produced by Whirlpool® use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. If this happens, you need to completely replace it. Belts Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.) Clutch If your washer was made by GE®, it may use a clutch for agitating the clothes. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the washer from agitating well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician. Drive motor Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor. Drive pulleys

My kenmore clothes washer won't empty water


some models reverse the moter to activate the pump .. some have a solonoid to engage the pump .. depends on what model you have ... if the motor runs but still it doesnt pump then look for a broken belt that drives the pump .. on some there is a little universal joint that sometimes breaks .. often the pump becomes clogged with coins and other debree .. you didnt say if the spin cycle started or not .. if it doesnt then you could have a bad door switch .. if that doesnt operate then the spin cycle wont start and it wont drain as well .. you can test for clogs by taking the drain hose out and placing it on the floor .. if a lot of water comes out then its not clogged .. if no water comes out then you have a clog .. (be prepaired for lots of water) .. even if water comes out there still could be a coin stoping rotation of the pump .. there is no reset on the pump, it is almost always run by the main motor ..

Why wont my washer spin.


Make sure it is agitating. If it is not doing either one. You will need to replace the coupler. It connects the transmission to the motor. It's located behind the motor. After you get the case off you will first be looking at the water pump. Next, behind the pump is the motor. Then the coupler. You can tilt the machine back and look on the floor where the center of the machine was. A lot of the time you can tell if the coupler is bad If you see a black dust or any broken pieces of rubber or plastic.

Kenmore 20842 won't spin or aggitate


Check your motor drive coupler. Tilt washer back against wall and look between motor and transmission . You will see a rubber grommet and two plastic couplers on each end of rubber , They may appear broken or you will see rubber shavings under washer.

No aggitation or spin, high pitched noise.


Sounds like you have a broken motor coupling , empty the unit , tilt it back against something so you can get a good look under it , the motor is in the middle of the pump[front side] and the gear case[back side] the shaft comes out of both ends of the motor , look for the part that connects the motor and the gear case , it is a small round rubber and plastic piece with prongs , all of the prongs have most likely broke off. , replace this and it should be fine. let me know if you have any other questions.
