    I had very same experience. I went to appliance centers to look inside dishwashers and doesn't look it's part of the machine and suddenly I realized it was from a lunch box, a rubber seal of an airtight lunch box.

I had the same experience but it's actually not part of the dishwasher, it's a rubber seal of a lunch box.

I have a today's kids rocking horse with rubber bands. Anyone have the instruction manual that tells you how to change the rubber bands easily??? we're worried we're going to break it to change the...


Okay, we just replaced the bands and this is what we found. Work on them diagonally, i.e. replace right front then left back and so on. To remove the yellow caps you need to move the red plastic stirrup so you can uncover the screw. When you remove the screw it allows the yellow cap to come off. Do the same on the back bands by turning the red piece. Hope this helps. God Bless!

My kenmore is at least 6-8 years old. It has been...


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.


Since it will spin (somewhat) two possibilities:

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.


If the motor coupler is OK, the problem could be the clutch:

Sears has a replacement clutch band kit.

See the following for how to pull the pump, motor and transmission.

You DON'T HAVE TO PULL THE AGITATORS OR TUB.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137&osCsid=65fc1c013d6130868b14c8bb4baf7bfd

Also see the Whirlpool / kenmore service manual for these washers.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

Both the Motor coupler (available from most appliance parts stores) and the clutch band kit are relatively inexpensive.

See the Following Whirlpool parts list for alternatives to the Sears part numbers.

That sounds like it came off of your small apliances (blender, food prosecer...) there is not any rubber washers on the inside of 99.9% of dishwashers becauss thay can melt in the heat.

My Whirlpool Duet front loader is ripping my clothing. It looks like it is being pulled, the area they are ripped looks like they are being pulled! I checked inside the machine to see if there was anything...


My washer ruined 2 king sheets 3 shirts and brand new jogging suit, so I know what you mean! The rubber gasket ...it had 2 metal bands..one on the inside which is a wide one and a small thin one on the outside of the gasket. You really can't see the wide one unless it has started to slipped off or break. or by taking the ting one off,..my wide band came loose which caused the screw to be exposed just enough for something to catch on it, tearing the material, it kept wrapping around and around untili eventually the band came completely off. I hope this helps.

I have a whirlpool ADP4400 the green light is flashing and the pump continues to pump but the cycle will not start


I had this exact problem with my dishwasher but i managed to fix it today. It was such a simple problem, the water outlet pipe had a kink in it and wouldnt let the water drain. I straightened the pipe, put duct tape around the kink to strenghten it and the dishwasher worked straight away. I hop this helps.
