Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
Washer would drain and go through cycles before replacing coupling just wouldn't agitate or spin and made a noise.
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:
Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.
I'd verify that the Motor Coupler is installed correctly first.
I'd also verify that the Lid Switch was re-connected after replacing the coupler. (A common oops that I've done myself)
If it was, I'd test the Lid Switch by jumping the two outermost contacts with a short piece of insulated wire.
See the Whirlpool Service manual for their top load, direct drive washers for how to bypass the switch.
