The spin cycle is making a terrible noise - the drum seems very loose and even makes a starnge sound when moving it by hand. Can I repair this myself?


If this is a Whirlpool manufactured TOP LOADER (such as Roper, Estate, Kenmore, Amana, and Frigidaire), you may have a damaged or broken motor coupling. Whirlpool manufactured top loading washers use a motor coupling between the drive motor and gearcase (transmission) in place of a drive belt. This configuration is known as "direct-drive". The coupling can break through normal wear and tear. Washing frequent loads of heavy items and reduce the life span of the coupler. Common symptoms include the following:

1. No spin or agitation.
2. Washer will fill and empty.
3. Drive motor still runs.
4. Strange rattling, grinding or clicking noise during agitation or spin cycles as the drum sits still.

If your washer is exhibiting these symptoms, then its probably a safe bet that the motor coupling is bad.

The following link explains how to replace one:

Spin cycle does not work. Lid switch works, fills with water , agitates, pumps out ok, but no spin. I have heard there is a kit for the transmission.


To begin there should be a good coupling between the motor and transmission, would assume it is ok as it agitates. Also there should be the motor running in drain and spin on the timer as it is draining and you say the lid switch is ok. The coupling or a bad lid switch are the most common problems on this washer. (a good washer)

The kit you are referring to is called the neutral drain kit, which is fairly simple with instructions. To install it(parts go under top gear in the transmission) however you have to pull the transmission.Suggest also changing the gear case oil but it is your washer. Also before you go this far would pull the agitator(7/16 bolt on top) and check the tub block is not stripped on the spin tube where the two tabs are on the top of the tube. You will pull this out anyway if you decide to disassemble and pull the transmission. When you pull the transmission you will have access to the clutch(if it spins empty but not with a load you need a clutch)
good luck,
spring and Easter are near

Will not spin


Hi,
The problem is a broken motor coupler.
Set the washer on the regular cycle, large load and let it fill. After the washer fills to the selected level, the motor should start and the agitator should start agitating.
If you hear the motor running, but the agitator doesn't move at all, do the following. Stop the washer and set the timer on the spin cycle and let it run.
If the washer motor runs and the washer empties the water from the tank, but it won't spin, that is an indication that the motor coupler is not turning the transmission at all.
The motor coupler is made of two pieces of plastic called fingers and a hard rubber piece that goes in between the two fingers. One of the fingers is attached to the motor and the other finger is attached to the transmission. They had rubber round piece goes between the two fingers. When one of the plastic fingers breaks, the motor is no longer coupled to the transmission and the washer will not agitate or spin dry the clothes. The reason that the motor coupler breaks before it should, it is that the user overloads the washer. People stuff the washer with too much clothes, big comforters, small placer rugs, snickers, etc.
Another reason is that the washer is used every day; normally the washer is used 3 times a week. So if you have a washer that is 5 years old and you use it every day, it has the wear and tear of a washer that is 10 years old.
Replacing the motor coupler is not hard to do, once you see how the repair is done. You will save at least $100 by replacing the motor coupler yourself.

Thank You for contacting Fixya.com

Washer motor spins but the TUB does not (intermittent)


If the motor is running and the tub is not spinning you must remove the motor and inspect the drive coupling.
One of the 2 plastic pieces could be stripped or cracked.
If the drive coupling is intact, proceed to the clutch on top of the transmission.
Replace the clutch linings.
