Whirpool washer, only number on the back is 3357976

I doubt that 3357976 is the model number but when it starts and its time for the agitater to churn and wash, there is a loud humming noise and no movement, U dont see how to get inside the unit to check things out either. Thank u

Sounds like i could be a bad coupling, most whirlpool washers are direct drive so there is not a belt, there is however a linkage between the motor and transmission. Pull the machine out and tilt it back. check on the floor directly beneath the washer for a pile of blck dust (this can be an idication of a bad coupler) make sure you wedge something underneath it so it dont fall on you while working on it. remove the pump by levering off the 2 clips, push the pump aside then remove the 2 screws holding the motor clips...remove the wire harness on the motor and then remove the 2 clips holding the motor in plce with a screw driver. now you should be able to drop the motor out...the coupling is the tripod shaped plastic attached to the motor and another to the transmission, they have a black round rubber linkage with 6 holes...examine this for damage and replace if damaged. re-assemble washer in reverse order.

Old GE washer, agitater starts, tubs stats to move

The main seal on the tranny is leaking. This is a cheap and easy fix. This machine is worth the effort to repair it by the way. Here is what you do and it is fairly easy to do although it sounds complicated. Remove the agitator and the tub anti wobble. Then remove the inner tub. Get the tub eal off and then remove the tranny. Flip it over and remove the bottom. Knock out the seal and put a new one using a little oil to lubricate it. Add 2 quarts of motor oil to the tranny and put it back together. Re install the tranny and she will be good as new. Nothing is complicated about this repair and no special tools are needed.

Whirpool Duet - Soap not getting into wash cycle

O.K. Is the water draining out properly? If the filter is blocked then your washing will be churning in dirty water as the machine will drain for a maximum time then rinse etc. in the used water.

Kenmore 90 plus series: heavy duty super capacity won't agitate

this is the site to find out how to fix your washer.
you have a broken drive coupling.
it probably wont agitate or spin, but will fill and drain.
you need to remove 2 screws from the control panel, hinge it back and then remove the 2 brass colored clips that hold the cabinet to the base. once you do then pull the entire cabinet forwards to a 45 degree angle and pull it off the base.
then pull the 2 clips off pump and then 2 more on the motor. that will allow you to get to the drive coupling. you will find it to be broken.
replace it with part number 285753a for about 15-20 bucks.
