Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
The back does not come off. You lift the case off of these. The model number should be either on the back of control panel or lift the lid and look around the inside lip of the opening. To get inside the machine:
There is a screw on each end of the control panel. Pull the panel forward while lifting and it will pivot back out of the way. Then there is a clip on each back corner, un-clip them and unplug the wire in the middle. Grab the inside of the opening on each side and lift up and forward. This takes the case off. This machine has no belts. It's a direct drive, meaning it has a coupler. Look behind the motor and there will be a black rubber piece. This is part of the coupler. To get it off, un-clip the pump, take screws out of the clips on the motor. Then un-clip the motor. The piece attached to the motor is the coupling. There is another piece still attached to the transmission. Replace the coupler and it will fix the problem.

One of the most common problems with washing machines, however, is that they won't spin. Usually this is caused by an issue that easily can be fixed, but other times it can be more serious. In some cases, just the balance of the load can cause the machine not to spin.
First open the lid and reposition the clothes. Close the lid and retry. The washer may not spin at all if the tub is unbalanced.
Examine the lid switch for wear. Replace a worn lid switch by first using a screwdriver to remove the top of the machine. Remove the cabinet holding the old switch in place by unscrewing the two console screws, tilting the console back, removing cabinet clips, and unlocking the lid switch block. Unscrew the mounting screws, and disconnect the ground wires before removing the old switch. Insert the new switch in it's place.
Look for excessive glazing or cracks on the sides of the belt. If these signs appear, remove the old belt by tipping the washing machine over on it's side, and unscrew the clamps securing the pump coupling with a screwdriver. Place the new belt over the transmission pulley, and then over the motor pulley's nearest edge, slowly turning the motor pulley to pull the belt around and into the pulley.
Replace the washer's motor by firmly grasping on the metal slip-on connectors holding the wires in place, allowing you to pull the connectors apart. Use a screwdriver to unscrew all of the screws holding the motor in place, and remove the old motor. Insert the new motor in its place. Secure the new motor to the machine with screws, and reconnect the motor's wiring harness.
Replace the washer's pump by removing the service panel on the back of the machine with a screwdriver and disconnecting the washing machine drain line and the rubber pump outlet hose. Remove the fasteners holding the pump to the bottom of the machine, along with the drive belt from the pulley below the pump. Replace the old pump with a new one, and reinstall the drive belt back on the pulley, reinsert the fasteners and reconnect the rubber pump inlet and discharge lines.
