Question about Washing Machines
I am assuming this is a direct drive washer you are talking about. If the motor coupler is bad, it is either going to be broke in pieces, or, the centers that fit on the motor shaft and the transmission shaft will be "rounded" out. The center should be the same shape as the motor and transmission shaft and fit tight. If it is rounded and has play in it when on the shaft, it needs replaced. Older couplers where plastic in the centers, the replacment and newer couplers have a metal insert on the centers to prevent them from rounding out. If the coupler is your problem, it will not spin or aggitate, but you will hear the motor running. The machine WILL still drain with a bad coupler. If it wont spin OR drain, you probably have a bad lid switch.
