The usual answer is to release the top, (you may have to insert a thin putty knife into each front corner and push rearward to release a spring latch) then remove screws from the inside corners of the back, lift the back panel up and out. Make sure your problem is the motor and not a bad start capacitor, or a broken drive belt. Hope this helps.

MOTOR HUMS BUT WONT TURN ON


This almost always caused by a burnt out dryer motor, the winding's in the motor are shorted or an open circuit. I advise you to replace the motor. While you are in there clean all the duck and debris out of the dryer cabinet, the duct contributes to early motor failure..

My 880 home dry is around 15 years old now and when on makes a loud squeaking noise, what is it and is it worth repairing , other wise works fine .regards


sounds like the fan - its worth taking apart and seeing which bit squeeks, if its the bearing try a small amount of WD40 first. try not to get any on the motor of electrics. You can by an electrolube spray if is is the Fan... Well worth taking apart, the latest EBAC models are of very poor quality.
I also had a Homedry for 15 years and the cabinets started to root first... I've had three 2560e's since all replaced under warranty - pcb failures...

I have used tedx640eq0 whirlpool dryer. Just moved into a new apartment that had a 3 prong plug. I connected the 2 hot's and put the ground on one of the ground terminals at the new 4 prong socket that I...


The reason for the 4-wire plug/socket system is that in the older 3-wire units, cabinet 'ground' was actually 'neutral' carrying current for the 115 volt parts of the dryer, while the two 'hots' were supplying 230 volt power for the heater and motor. This allowed a voltage difference between the dryer cabinet and true ground. How did you wire 3-wires (coming from the apartment electrical panel) into the 4-wire dryer socket? Dryer cabinet ground should go to true ground at the electrical panel, and dryer neutral should go to electrical panel neutral. Did Whirlpool violate the separation of 'neutral' and 'ground' when the machine was made (did the timer neutral connection go to cabinet ground instead of machine neutral or is the timer motor stuck)? Your dilemma would be answered by having the apartment owner hire a licensed electrician to upgrade the dryer service to 4-wire specifications. The ground to neutral connection you mentioned may make it work, but you will wind up with the 'hot' cabinet condition that the 4-wire setup was supposed to alleviate. Hope some of this helps!

Replacing motor coupling


Removing the cabinet. UNPLUG the washer. There are two screws holding the control panel to the cabinet. Most models the screw are in front but, some models have the screws in back. They are on each end. Now raise the control panel up and let it rest on the hinges. Unplug the lid switch harness and locate the clips on each side (bronze in color) and release them.
Now the cabinet will lift off the frame and you can set it aside.

How to replace a coupler:
Now that the cabinet is out of the way, remove the pump from the motor and set the pump off to the side. Remove the two screws holding the clips on the motor and remove the clips. Unplug the motor harness and on some models you wil need to unplug the capacitor.
Now you will need to replace all three parts to the coupler. I use a ½” socket and a small hammer to force the coupler onto the motor and transmission shafts. Put the rubber part onto the coupler half on the transmission and then line up the post on the motor shaft with the holes on the rubber part and it should go on ok. Put the clips that hold the motor in place and plug in the harnesses.
Put the pump back on and the clips to hold it in place. Set the cabinet back on the frame. Make sure the lip on the front cabinet is under the front rail of the frame. Ease the cabinet on the frame making sure the two rear sides of the cabinet set down on the tabs of the frame.
Put the two clips back on that hold the cabinet and plug the lid switch back in. Fasten the control panel down and you are all set.

I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Yes Friend, You need to just replace the clutch assymbly. It looks like you know the mechanics of your machine well. I've included the complete instructions below to help others that may have the same problem. It's easy to replace the clutch assymbly on your machine. First, pop the cover off the top of your agitator and remove the bolt that holds it in place. Gently pull the agitator up and out of the machine. Now, remove the two screws that hold control panel in place and tilt back exposing the two metal clips that hold the cabinet in place. You will see some wires plugged into the cabinet, just unplug them. There are two clips, one on each side. Just pop these clips off and lift cabinet slightly from back and tilt forward. At this point you will be able to completely remove the cabinet. Once you have cabinet removed just set it aside. Now, just lay the washer on it's back. At this point you will see the water pump, motor, and transmission. Remove the pump by snapping off the two spring clips. The pump will slide right off the motor shaft. Now, remove the two screws that hold the two spring clips attached to motor. Unplug all the wires etc. and then snap the metal clips off motor. Lift motor straight up, it should slide right off. Now you will see three bolts holding the transmission in place, just remove these three bolts. Now, gently pull the transmission out of the washer and sit it in an upright possition. At this point you will see the clutch assymbly on the top of the transmission with the agitator shaft going through it. There is a spring clip holding the clutch in place be sure to wear eye protection. Just pop this spring out and remove the entire clutch and replace with new clutch assymbly. Re-assymble the washer and the problem you are encountering should be solved. Happy to help, Tim.
