Question about KitchenAid KAWS700L Top Load Washer
I have an kitchenaid wahing machine, while washing i heard a what sounded like a large truck, then it quite spinning and will not agitate. model # is KAWE570BA1O . which panel do you take off and how to look and see if it is the belt?

If the washer will fill and drain, but won't agitate or spin, you may have a broken motor coupling. The noise of the motor engaging, lack of agitation and ability to still drain are the usual symptoms. This is a common fail item with this model washer through normal wear and tear. Newer versions of the coupler are more resilient and resist breaking. The following link explains how to replace one:
The motor coupling is located between the drive motor and the transmission and takes the place of a drive belt. They do wear out and can break. The replacement part number is included in the link I provided and is an improved upgraded coupling that is more resilient. It should last longer. If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
A replacement coupler can be purchased on line at appliancepartspros.com for about $11. Just use the part number in the link and "Search by Part Number" for your search criteria.
If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
PS If the washer you have this listed under is correct, it is manufactured by Whirpool and these instructions will apply.
