This is a relatively easy fix for the basic Kenmore / Whirlpool washers.

Please see GURU JSROCK516 Description of how to remove cabinet and access the transmission.

http://www.fixya.com/support/r699497-replacing_gearcase

Follow the instructions for removing the cabinet and pulling the pump, motor and motor mounting plate.

The coupler has two plastic pieces with three prongs each. In between is the rubber coupler with six holes.

Pry the plastic pieces from the motor and transmission. Some people use a claw hammer but I've found that using a small (6 inch) pry bar works well.

Carefully fit the plastic pieces over the motor and transmission shafts and press them in place (Use a 1/2" of larger socket to put pressure equally around the pieces.

Put the rubber piece on the transmission plastic piece.

Replace the motor mounting plate.

Carefully line up the plastic prongs on the motor based plastic piece to the three un-used holes in the rubber piece. If they don't line up right, the coupler could be damaged.

Mount the motor, don't forget the two screws, put the pump back on the motor and use its' clips.

Put the cabinet back on, don't forget to plug the lid switch back in and re-mount the console.

Sounds like a broken motor coupler for sure, the motor shaft will still spin the drain pump, but drive between the motor and transmission is lost. Part# 285753A. Have fun. If you need breakdown info let me know.

Check the motor coupling. Remove the cabinet, pump and motor and see if the coupling (designed to break if the transmission or motor jams) is broken. Check the Sears site

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?pop=true&modelNumber=11020802990

for part number :

Manufacturer authorized substitution: 285753A may differ in appearance, but is a functional equivalent to prior parts including 3364003. If it isn't the coupler, it most likely is the motor.

The drum is not spinning. I hear a noise like when you stick something in your bike spokes.


Assuming that this is a Kenmore / Whirlpool top loader with a direct drive system, the first thing to check is the motor coupling.

The transmission and motor have plastic parts that connect through a rubber coupling.

pd_0026_110_285753a?$pddetailsth$ #13 on diagram Coupling, motor and isolation Number:661560Substitution:285753A $18.50 If the coupler rubber piece wears out, the pins on the motor and transmission sides will rub together making the sound.

If the coupler looks good the problem is likely in the transmission.

Kenmore 70 series washer, clothes are soaking wet after spinning


If it fill and motor runs but will not agitate it likely is the coupler. If you have the cabinet off and see the motor here is what you do.
there are 2 metal straps that attach the motor to the transmission. take the screws out that hold the straps on and pop the straps out of their slots. the motor will then come off and the coupler is between the motor and transmission. One section goes on motor shaft and one on the transmission shaft with rubber bushing in between.
Coupler part number is 285753A
