Question about Washing Machines
Ok, if all you are doing is replacing the coupling here is how you do it....Pull machine forward....Tilt it back so you can access the bottom...make sure you wedge something underneath so machine does not fall on top of you while working on it. Now pull 2 clips off pump, pull pump off mount and push aside..Remove 2 screws from motor clips...remove wire harness from motor, now remove two clips with a screwdriver holding motor in place...drop motor our onto the floor...replace coupling and rebuild the motor and pump in reverse order you took it off...make sure you reattach the wire harness onto the motor...thats about it...anything else is mumbo jumbo...have been replacing these for 20 years and this is easiest way and quickest. Hope this helps...good luck!

First unplug the unit. the console has to be tilted you most remove two screw to do this one is on the far right the other is on the far left. note the new models under about six years old the screw are on the back of the console. after tilting the console you need to remove to large clips far left and right they're a goldish color use a regular screw driver to pry these out they release at the front of the clip use caution this is the hardest part of the job as a newbie. now unplug the quick disconnect on the cabinet locate under the console right hand side. now the cabinet is ready to be removed lift up and forward set cabinet out of your way. now locate the pump to hose going to it in the middle of the washer at bottom. remove the two clips no need to remove hose will make water mess pull pump forward and off push to the side out of your way. now two clips on the motor needs removed they're is two screws one on each clip they will be removed 1/4 or 5/16 then remove the clips the motor it will basicly fall off pull it out so you can see the other end of the motor that is where your coupling is located. remove it off the motor and the other side of the coupling off the transmission install new coupling reverse your steps your done

Tips for a great answer:
This coupling kit is used between the motor and the transmission on direct drive washers with no belt. This is the newer version and is made with new metal sleeves for added strength.
