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.

I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

MOTOR WONT COME ON AUTOMATICLY. I HAVE TO SPIN THE MOTOR WITH MY HAND THEN IT COMES ON


Hi,
that is because the capacitor for the motor is bad...
The capacitor is the round or oval thing that is hooked by couple of wires to the motor and gives it the electrical kick to get it started...
Replace the cap with one of the same MFD an voltage rating...

My head lamps make a noise every time they close...


I would try the oil or some silicone spray, the motor must be struggling to close. It looks just like a window operator motor. And they go bad, so, might be time to get a couple new ones, ebay, $16.50 to $415.00, Wow! I'd go to the junk yard. Hope this helps.

I am trying to determine if it is worth fixing the timing chain on the 2000 oldsmobile intrigue. i hear they are fairly expensive. we just replaced a cracked radiator and the serpentine belt. The mechanic...


Wow. Only worth it if the mechanic is trustworthy and you can't afford to get out from under it. It is a pretty complicated repair. The car probably isn't worth more than a couple thousand dollars, depending on where you are located. Why do they want to replace the timing chain? How many miles are on the engine?

Replace coupler on kenmore top loader would like diagram


Go to searspartsdirect.com. You will have to put in the model number to do a search. The search will produce an exploded view along with the parts list and prices. If you're wanting to replace the coupling; the easiest approach is to lay the washer face down. Remove the motor mounts and replace the coupling. The couplings are plastic and fit tightly to both shafts. Pry coupling loose from motor and washer with a screwdriver. Install one of the coupling halves on each shaft. Sit the rubber center section on to the motor half of the coupling and install motor and motor mounts.
