Question about Kenmore Washing Machines
If the washer
will fill and drain, but won't agitate or spin, you may have a broken
motor coupling. The noise of the motor engaging, lack of agitation and
ability to still drain are the usual symptoms. This is a common fail
item with this model washer through normal wear and tear. Newer versions
of the coupler are more resilient and resist breaking. The following
link explains how to replace one:
The motor coupling is located between the drive motor and the transmission and takes the place of a drive belt. They do wear out and can break. The replacement part number is included in the link I provided and is an improved upgraded coupling that is more resilient. It should last longer. If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
A replacement coupler can be purchased on line at appliancepartspros.com for about $11. Just use the part number in the link and "Search by Part Number" for your search criteria.
