SOURCE: kenmore washer

It could possibly be a motor coupler that has broke. Its a small rubber disk mounted on plastic drive joints. Its located between the motor and the transmission. This coupler is made to rip or break in case of something more serious, sort of like protection for the motor or transmission. Jim

SOURCE: AMANA WASHER WON'T SPIN. HOW DO I REPLACE THE BELT?

is this a whirlpool built amana? if so, its most likely a direct drive model, and when it doesn`t spin its likely a coupling between the gearcase and motor assembly...youtube has videos on how its replaced, which isn`t too complicated to do...good luck

SOURCE: maytag washer will not spin. motor overheats and drum won't turn

If it has a belt try loosening the belt and see if the transmission and pump will turn and are not stuck.
If they are they will have to be replaced. Try the motor and see if it turns freely with the belt loose or off. If they all turn freely check motor.

SOURCE: Replaced broken washer belt, but drum still won't spin.

you may have a bad bearing in a pulley,could be motor coupling. Take belt off and spin motor shaft and pulley both ways if it's free, then its more than likely not the motor. Now spin the drum with belt off and see if it does the same as with the belt on if it does it has to be a bad bearing or coupling to the drum. hope this helps

Testimonial: "Thanks for your input. I'll look into it. If the problem is a bearing, is it an easy fix or should I start saving for a new washer?"

SOURCE: washer will not spin out. Drum will not turn by

I am not a repair professional. I am a 78 year old man who has been making his own repairs for about 50 years. So the washer or dryer ID doesn't mean much to me. I came to fixya looking for a schematic for an really old AM/FM radio and found that more than 4,700 people were asking for help with a washer repair. I recently had a washer repair of my own and at that time I found an excellent video which showed me how to take my machine apart. This video made it possible for me to do my own repair. If you are repairing a dryer or a front load washer I suggest you
go to www.applianceaid.com where they have very good step by step trouble shooting and repair information on both washers and dryers as well as other appliances. If you have a direct drive top load washer and need help taking it apart this video is an early christmas present. I was so impressed with it that when I saw all these people needing help, I wanted to tell them about it. If you look at the back of your washer and the panel is solid (no small inspection plate to remove which would indicate you have a v-belt drive) chances are you have a direct drive and this video is just what you need. You can see it at www.acmehowto.com You will probably still need help in determining what the trouble is and how to fix it. After viewing the video or if you have a v-belt drive rather than a direct drive, I suggest you go to www.applianceaid.com where they have very good
trouble shooting and repair nformation on most
washers and dryers. I think you'll find what you need
there. Don't worry about the timer, they hardly ever
go bad. Good luck with it. If I have helped you, please rate my advice on fixya.

My washer model fjs1397w wont move through a wash cycle or spin drum wont go around on any cycle , tried moving it around by hand will not do anything


if you are unable to turn the drum by hand it may have ceased due to a sock or item of clothing jammed in it behind the drum this in turn may have snapped the belt

I have a frigidaire front load washer that I have spent over $375 to have repaired and it is still not working. It is not washing or spinning. It has water in it now. It comes on and just hum.


i just fixed the same problem on my machine. turns out my drum was jammed by a pair of underwear that made its way between the drum and housing. try turning the drum by hand. if it does not spin freely, take off the back panel and remove the belt. check the motor to see if that turns freely. if not,replace motor. if the motor turns, try turning the drum by hand (very sharp edges, wear gloves) using the pulley. if something is in there impeding the spin, get ready to pull the whole thing apart. cuss a lot and have a great time

Front loader washer machine not rotating.


Fisrt, see if you can rotate it by hand, BOTH directions. It should have some resistance. If you can spin it and when you stop pushing it will turn a full turn, your drum belt is too loose. If the belt is good and tight, it will spin less than one half rotation, there is probably something blocking one of the wheels that the drum rides on.

Washer won't spin, motor sounds like its working, belt is fine...what do I check or do?


The belt may look fine, but if the motor is spinning, then the belt isn't transferring the motion to the drum.

First, make sure you can turn the drum by hand. Turn off the power. Reach inside the drum, grab the opposite sides and turn. If it moves more than a few inches, then it isn't the drum that's stuck. Possibly the belt tensioner has slackened and needs to be adjusted.

Maytag washer will not spin. motor overheats and drum won't turn


If it has a belt try loosening the belt and see if the transmission and pump will turn and are not stuck.
If they are they will have to be replaced. Try the motor and see if it turns freely with the belt loose or off. If they all turn freely check motor.
