Most likely a motor coupler issue. Unplug you machine before starting this repair. Remove the two front end caps on the console (they snap out towards you). After removing the twp caps, you will see 2 console hold down screws down towards the bottom of the console. Remove these 2 screws, then gently pull the console towards you at the bottom, then lift the console up and over the top of the unit. You will see 2 gold looking clips, pop these clips out from the top of the cabinet, then remove the lid switch wiring from the rear of the machine (just snaps in and out). Rotate the entire cabinet (top rear of cabinet will rotate towards you) and remove. Near the bottom front, you will see the motor and pump assembly. Unsnap the pump and swing it out of the way (you do not need to remove the hoses), you can hold it in place with a long screwdriver, rope, etc. On the front of the motor you will see two clips being held in by screws. Remove the screws, then pop the two clips. The motor will now be free. As you remove the motor, you will see 1/3 of the motor coupler. The other part is a round rubber piece, and another that will looks just like the part on the motor (remove the transmission half by using a screwdriver from underneith). After you remove them, installation is reversed. Lightly tap on each motor coupler, in the center ONLY, with a long extension and a 9/16" socket. Part number for the motor coupler is 285753A, and can be purchased from a local appliance parts store (prefered), an Ebay item (also prefered, but a liitle wait on shipping) or Sears.com (not prefered, high mark-up on parts and shipping, takes a bit to get as well). Let me know if you need further info. Jim
