My washer machine, it does not spin, just make a noice


Hello,

What your experiencing with the noise and your washer not spinning,sounds very typical of a broken motor coupler..that style washer uses a coupler that directly couples the motor to the tranmission to make the washer spin& agitate. It uses that coupler instead of a belt,and its very common for the coupler to break. OIts very easy to replace..this youtube video will show you stepby step how to take apart the washer and replace the coupler.
The part number for that coupler is 285753A it could be purchased at your local appliance parts store or online at;
searspartsdirect.com
apdepot.com
repairclinic.com
apwagner.com
partselect.com

I have a Kenmore top loading large capacity washer model 1028882791. It began washing as usual then began to making a loud humming sound. The agitation stopped. It only makes a loud humming sound. I...


The humming sound is coming from the drive motor running but unable to drive the agitator nor the basket to spin. The drive motor is definitely running as the drain function works because of the fact that drain pump is directly coupled with the rear spline of the motor. The drain pump works in either direction as long as the motor runs. The problem is obviously a broken motor coupler which transfers the mechanical energy of the motor to the transmission. The solution then is to replace the broken coupler. Click on the link below for the detailed step-by-step procedure in replacing the motor coupler.

Replacing Motor Coupler on Kenmore and Whirlpool Top-Load Washing Machines

Washer stoped spinning the water out it washes but dont spin


This is usually caused by the motor coupler. This is very inexpensive and easy to replace. Here is a video this will walk you thru this disassembling and replacing a motor coupler in a direct drive machine. It may be a different model but the troubleshooting and replacement will be the same. You can also enter your model # for your specific model to get diagrams and illustrations. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.

I change the coupler of a kenmore washer, but when i starter to work again, there is a noice, kind a ruber noice.


I'd pull the cabinet and check the coupler again.

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.

If you havn't completely seated the plastic pieces, the rubber can be damaged and you'd hear/smell rubber burning.

Washing machine clicking when agitating, but it won't agitate


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.#######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Assuming that it also won't spin, the most likely reason is the Motor Coupler.

This is a device that transmits power from the motor to the transmission. It consists of three parts.
Two of them are plastic devices with prongs that fit into a center rubber coupler. If the coupler is damaged, you may be hearing the plastic prongs hitting each other making a "clicking" noise and no power is getting to the transmission . See the following for how to access the coupler and check / replace it.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=135&osCsid=3bc29e1d1c23c909301776946bde8680

Also see the following Whirlpool / Kenmore service manual for top load, direct drive washers.

This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?modelNumber=110.22932102

and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Look in the section for the motor, pump gearcase and you'll see the Motor Coupler.

Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive washers use a "Motor Coupler" between the motor and transmission.

It's used as a fail safe device and consists of three parts.

Two of the parts are the same, plastic units with three prongs that fit on one of the motor output shafts and the other on the transmission input shaft. Between them is a rubber piece with six holes.

The power from the motor is transmitted through the rubber piece to the transmission.

The other shaft on the motor directly drives the pump. This is likely why the machine drains.

If the motor coupler is broken, or worn, the motor may not be able to send full power to the transmission for agitating or spinning.

The "clicking" is llikely the prongs hitting each other if the rubber center piece is destroyed.

See the following for how to remove the cabinet, pump, motor and motor mounting plate to inspect and replace the motor coupler.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137

If the coupler looks damaged, it's a relatively easy fix.

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.

Kitchenaid topload wont spin or adjatate


You have one of two problems. If your machine sounds like it's trying to agitate, you will have a bad coupler. If it just does nothing after it fills, your lid switch is bad.
For your lid switch, click on this http://www.partselect.com/MultiModels.aspx?ModelNum=kaws850l&searchTerm=img_HWUP4CX3&RefineSearch=0&imgMfg=Whirlpool tha lid switch is #11. Machine will not agitate without the lid closed and a bad switch makes the machine think that the lid is open.
For your coupler, click on this http://www.partselect.com/MultiModels.aspx?ModelNum=kaws850l&searchTerm=&RefineSearch=0 the coupler is part #13 ( comes with all 3 pieces ) The coupler connects the motor shaft to the transmission. When bad, the motor will spin but the trasmission will not.
Note: Unit will pump water even with a bad coupler because the pump is connected directly to the other side of the motor shaft than the transmission.
Also, to replace the coupler or lid switch. Take the machine apart through the top. Remove screws from the front edge of the console click on this http://www.partselect.com/MultiModels.aspx?ModelNum=kaws850l&searchTerm=&RefineSearch=0 Remove both #8's. and unplug the wire from the lid switch.
Then click on this, http://www.partselect.com/MultiModels.aspx?ModelNum=kaws850l&searchTerm=&RefineSearch=0 and remove both #6's. Once you have removed the #6's, you will be able to pull the case foward just a little. Then you can unattach the hose connections. Once you have deattached everthing holding the case from pulling forword, tilt the case to you and lift off the bottom frame. Now you will be able to replace both the motor coupler and or the lid switch.
If I were you, If the coupler has never been replaced, or if you can see a black dust on the floor under the middle of the unit. I would go ahead and do so. The motor coupler is the most common part to fail on machines like yours. Under normal use they will fail anywhere from every 4 to 8 years. Less if you load it heavy, more if you load it light.
I hope this helps and Good luck

There is a part between the motor and gearcase called a coupler, the clicking happens when it cracks. Easy way is to pull the machine foreward and tilt it back to expose the bottom. Clips hold a pump, has two hoses attached, then a motor, unclip wire harness on left and any other attached, mark these extra wires if it has them. The motor has two clips supported with two 1/4 in hex screws, Now you should see the coupler, a rubber donut and two three pronged plastic flanges attached at gearcase and motor. Use a 1/2 socket to flush the new coupler flanges on both sides and the rest is a experience.
