Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
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.
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.
