Hi, The coupler replaces the belt and it could have broke. Other options are, the lid switch is bad or the spin basket drive assembly or the transmission. If the coupler is broke, the washer will not agitate either. If the lid switch is bad, the motor will not run either while in spin cycle. If the spin basket drive or transmission are bad, it might spin a little but not strong enough to get the water out of the clothes.
Does nay of these sound like they are what is going on with your washer?
Please let me know if this has helped you at all or if I can assist you further.

Thanks

Washing machine has smell (burning) and doesnt spin or drain tub.


Sounds like the belt may need to be changed. it eh pulley are spinning but the belt is not, nothing will spin and the friction of the pulley against the belt will cause a burning rubber smell

Washer wont spin ...motor runs but drum doesnt


If this is a Duet front loader, you need to check to see if the drive belt may have broken, or slipped off the drive pulley behind the wash tub.

To access and replace/reinstall the belt, the following link explains:

If you have any questions, or if the model washer you have is different, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

It wont spin and it looks like the drum isnt moving, is it belt driven?


It will never spin if the drum doesnt turn. Check the drain pump for any obstruction and look for any blockages in the pipes.

Unplug Washer
Shut of Water hoses to Washer and Disconnect from Washer.
Turn washer around and remove back cover.
Look inside fro the Belt it should either be Loose, or Broken. Just Replace.

I OVERLOADED THE WASHER AND NOW IT WILL NOT DRAIN OR SPIN


your washer doesnt have a belt, it is a direct drive with a coupling on the motor, so that is not likely your problem.
i would look to see if the lid switch is broken, when the switch wont work it wont spin or drain. if the coupling is broken it wont agitate or spin, but will drain the water.
just look under the top and see if the switch is just hanging loose. it has 2 screws holding it to the cabinet and a wiring harness that goes to the control panel.

Washer wont spin


Is the lock door light on if not change the wax motor & the main control board (board is approx $169.00+).That is the problem unless the belt slipped off .Common neptune issue you have will most likely repeat itself so,you decide from there.
