SOURCE: I attached a 5/8 inch

You should always have a rubber washer in the female end of a hose.

How to change a coupler on top load direct drive whirlpool and kenmore washers

The following is a step-by-step instructions on replacing a drive coupler on whirlpool and kenmore direct drive washers. The part number for the coupler is 285753A.1)tip the unit back and lean it against the wall
2)remove the 2 clips on the top and bottom of the white pump and the pump will side off the motor shaft.
3)You can kind of bend the pump and wedge it up out of your way to the left.
4)There will be two clamps holding the motor in place but they will have either 1/4 inch or 5/8 screws that you have to remove. Then pry these two clamps off the motor with a flathead screwdriver. (be sure to remove motor harness and the two wires off the capacitor)
5)The motor will then drop down and your coupler will be attached to that side of the motor shaft. The other side of the coupler will be on the transmission shaft. Pry both of these peices off (theres also a black rubber piece that is in between the two plastic pieces) which is what is on the ground it will be probably all torn up.
6)the new coupler will have an aluminum insert in the middle so you will need to take a deep well socket turn it over so the small drive side is on the coupler and use it to hammer on the new coupler to the transmission and motor shafts.
-make sure that you get the aluminum flush with the ends of the shafts. You dont want it to go on too far or not far enough.
-a trick for the motor is to hold it in between your knees and hammer the coupler on i use a pair of channel locks as my hammer and the socket.
7)place the rubber piece one the legs of the coupler on the transmission side and you have to line up the legs on the motor side to put the motor back into place. (make sure the 4 rubber grommets that are on the motor are all in place).
-you can spin the motor from the front shaft to rotate the coupler and make it easier to line it up.
8) put clamps back into place and put the pump back on the motor shaft
-to line up the shaft with the pump you can spin the coupler with your fingers to spin the opposite side of the motor shaft allowing it to line up with the pump.

Hope this helps _MJ_

I am living in Argentina I buy a Melnor Yardworks model 59-7470-0 in Canadian Tires in Canada Unfortunly the treads conectos are of difernt that we have commoly here for example Gardena and others...

This is not going to be an easy 1:1 conversion
I believe Argentina uses BSP British Standard Pipe
Unknown what thread is used for water hose in Argentina.
US sold products use NPT tapered pipe thread
US has different-but-similar thread for water hose.

So you need at least 2 adapters:
Adapter from 3/4" BSP to 3/4" NPT.
And then adapt 3/4" NPT to 3/4" hose thread.
And then possibly another adapter to hose thread in Argentina.

There is no immediate link announcing which vendor sells BSP to NPT adapter fittings, in Argentina.
However, the following link sells adapters, in Australia:

You can google the following search parameter in Argentina:
Adapt NPT pipe thread to BSP pipe thread

Issue is compounded with 2nd adapter problem.
Melnor sells water timers that screw onto a hose bib.
3/4" hose thread is different than 3/4" NPT pipe thread because 3/4" pipe thread is tapered, while hose thread is straight with no taper.
When connecting a water timer to hose bib, the seal is made with rubber washer.

Home centers in US sell 3/4" NPT pipe thread to 3/4" hose thread.

You can google the following parameter, but sources might not be in Argentina: 3/4" hose thread to 3/4" pipe thread

Garage Door Goes down 5 inches and then up 5 inches.

Okay here we go.

Make sure you put the black cup back on the end of the motor shaft and that it is pressed all the way on. Make sure the RPM sensor is plugged in. If neither of these is the issue, then you probably did not have the motor shaft pushed all the way back when you tightened the coupler after replacing the worm gear. Loosen that coupler up and from the front of the motor (opposite end in which the coupler is on) push the shaft back as far as it will go. Hold it there while you tighten the coupler back up and then give it a try.
