My washer did not spin agitate or pump. When I removed the motor the coupling was broken. I replaced the coupling it ran for half a cycle then just quit. When I took in apart the pump outlet was stripped the coupler was in a bind and the shaft to the motor does not turn freely.

You could have 2 problems,, first one- the motor bearings could be locked up-or the motor could be burnt--if so you would smell it--
2.you could have something logded in side the pump fan--the older models you can take apart & dislodge the item--the newer ones have to replace the whole pump..

Timer was ruined from detergent dripping onto it. Replaced twice already. 1st would go thru cycle but not spin fast enough to dry clothes. 2nd would wash but not drain or spin.


those signs are not neccessarily ur timer, u may have replaced it for nothing. both spin and drain problems are likely located elsewhere?

No agitation or spin? try these:

Motor Coupling If the washer won't spin or agitate the motor coupling might have failed. The motor coupling connects the motor to the washer transmission. It is designed to fail if the washer is overloaded in order to protect both the motor and
Drive Belt If the washer won't spin or agitate, check the drive belt. If the belt is broken or if it isn't tight on the pulleys the washer won't spin or agitate properly.

Drive Motor If the washer won't spin or agitate the drive motor might be defective. This is not common. Check all of the other related parts to this symptom before replacing the motor. If the motor is visibly burned out or physically damaged, replace it.

Stator Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the stator assembly might be burned out. The stator is essentially one half of a motor, it interacts with the tub by creating a strong electro-magnet. If the stator burns out the washer won't spin or agitate. Check the stator for continuity. This part is often misdiagnosed.

Transmission or clutch assembly not engaging due to going out or slipping.


Door or Lid Latch Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Motor Control Board If the washer won't spin or agitate the motor control board might be defective. The motor control board provides power to the motor as well as direction and force. If the motor control board is defective the washer may not work at all or function properly.


CHECK THE CAM DOGS INSIDE THE AGITATOR, AS THEY WILL HINDER THE AGITATION PROCESS.


Washer will not drain:

Thedrain water pumpis the main part in your washing machine that pumps out the water. If this is defective or has failed in any way, this will be the reason why your washer will not drain the water. Before you order a new drain pump, make sure tocheck the pump to be sure a small object like clothing or similar has not lodged itself insideof it causing the NO DRAIN issue. If the drain pump is not clogged, you can test it with a multimeter and remove and replace if needed. Go to Google or YouTube and search for "Replace Washing Machine Drain Pump" then type your brand and model number of washer to show you details on replacement.

The washing machinedrain hoseis where the water flows through to get the water out.If this drain hose is blocked, kinked, bent, or clogged, the washer will NOT be able to remove the waterfrom the tub. Check the drain hose to be sure it allows the water to flow freely. You can take the drain hose off and run water through it in your sink to be sure it is not blocked. If there is water STILL in the washer when you remove the drain hose, grab a bucket as the water will exit from where you disconnected it
Thewater pump belt(to drain out the water) may have broke or become frayed or loose.If this belt breaks then it is unable to drain and remove the water from your washer. Inspect the belt to see if this is causing theNO DRAINissue and remove and replace if needed.

If thelid switchis not working as required it will cause your washer to not drain (and many other problems).This may be unlikely as a bad lid switch will usually cause your washer to alsonot agitate or spin.However on some models this can vary. The best thing to do if you have a suspected bad lid switch is to test it. It can fail electrically and or mechanically. If mechanical failure is the issue, you should be able to see if it is cracked, broken, or not in place to make contact with the lid. To test it electrically, use a multimeter set on Ohms and test it for continuity

Drum doesn't spin or agitate. Only drains. Timer works.


It doesn't spin If your washer won't spin, check these: It doesn't pump or spin If it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows: If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt. If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

If it's defective, you need to replace it. Motor coupler Many washers produced by Whirlpool® use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. If this happens, you need to completely replace it. Belts Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.) Clutch If your washer was made by GE®, it may use a clutch for agitating the clothes. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the washer from agitating well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician. Drive motor Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor. Drive pulleys

If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician.
The drive motor may be defective. Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor.
The transmission may not be shifting properly. Older washers produced by Whirlpool® have a transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective, the unit may drain the water but not spin. This is a complex system, if your washer has a shifter problem, you may want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it.
The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized. These components allow the inner tub to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this is the problem, you usually hear a loud sound during the spin cycle. Call a qualified appliance repair technician.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

The washer will not agitate or spin out. the washer will fill and empty the water.


The most likely cause is the motor coupling, one on the motor and one on the transmission. UNPLUG POWER FROM WASHER. If it is broken your washer will fill and you will hear the motor running but nothing will happen, no agitation or spin. You will need to loosen the console, remove the cabinet drain pump and motor, then the motor coupling can be replaced on the motor and transmission. Part comes as a kit. Part number 285753a. Please rate this post.

Washing machine does not spin unless I go in and start to turn the drumb. Lots of water on the floor.


Assuming that this is a top load, direct drive, neutral drain washer you appear to have two problems. No spin and a broken/leaking gasket or pump hose.

A good place to look at parts and diagrams of a basic Whirlpool washer (commercial model but consumer models are basically the same) is:

http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%20W10114743.pdf

It's possible that

1. The motor coupling between the motor and transmission is worn enough that the motor cannot turn the transmission fast enough to begin the spin cycle.

2. You may have a problem with worn/broken cams in the neutral assembly. Those cams/gears etc. in that assembly keep the washer from spinning until all of the water is pumped out and then go into spin mode. Apparently, by opening and closing the lid, and giving it a minor hand spin, the cams and torque from the motor starting throws the cams into the right gears so that the washer will spin.

Inspecting the motor coupler only requires unplugging the, removing the cabinet, pump (two clips) and the motor (two screws and two clips). Since you will do this to check out the pump anyhow, that's a start.

Look at the coupler on the motor and transmission, If it's worn badly or broken replace it. Beyond that, if it appears to be the transmission, you'll have to remove the agitators (a 1/2" drive bolt under the cap for the top agitator and a bolt into the agitator shaft. Pulling the transmission and checking the cams requires a little basic mechanical knowledge.
Remove the clutch (one spring clip), the spin pinion, 8 bolts for the transmission cover (full of 16 Oz of 80-90 weight oil) and the clip that holds the main spin gear in place. Remove that and look at the neutral drain cams. On ours, the cam with a small spring didn't have one (it has broken off) sp the washer wouldn't go into spin mode unless we hand spun it to get it started or lifted and lowered the lid.

Replace the cams, put everything back and it should work.

The waste on the floor could be caused by a leaking pump, broken drain hose or the gasket at the base of the tub. Since you'll have mose of the washer apart anyway, these should be easy to check.

Washer won't agitate after filling, grinding noise


this could be the coupling for the motor/transmission.

follows are instructions for removing the cabinet:

  • Using a Phillips screwdriver, remove the screw from each side of the console.
  • Pull the console forward and up to remove the tabs on the bottom of the end caps, out of the holes in the top.
  • Lift the console up and lay it on its back.
  • Unplug the harness connectorfor the lid switch.
  • Insert a flat screwdriver into the front edge of the clip (located on both sides), and pry back. Remove both clips from the holes in the cabinet and slide down the other end of the clips and out the slot in the rear panel.
  • Open and hold the lid while grabbing the cabinet front opening. Be sure when tilting the cabinet that the back edge clears the vacuum break.
  • Tilt the top of the cabinet toward you by pulling on the lid and opening of the cabinet. This releases the back slots of the cabinet from the tabs in the back of the base.
  • Carefully pull the cabinet away from the base of the washer and set it aside.
    Now you have access to most of the parts.
Now on the front of the base, you will see the pump. This is held on with two clips, Pop these off and pull the pump straight off the motor. The motor has two clips on it as well, (remove any screws if they are there, some have them, some don't) and pull the clips away. The motor will want to fall. Keep a firm steady hand under it to prevent damage to floor or motor.

Look on the back of the motor and see if you see a little rubber disk with 6 holes. There is a three pronged connection on the motor as well as the transmission. If this coupler is not broken, you may have a bad transmission. To check for a bad transmission, take something that you can place over one of the prongs on the connection, and spin that first clockwise and note what the agitator does. Now spin it counterclockwise and see if the basket inside the tub starts to spin. If nothing happens either way, you probably have a bad transmission. If you get action from the transmission, then you just need the coupler, which you can get one at a local appliance parts store. Replace the broken parts and replace motor/pump assy.

Hope this helps :)

Washer will not spin or agitate


This is a bad coupling, part # 285753. It is available from timerking.com for $9.99, and other places as well. To replace unplug and lay the machine down on its back, remove the 2 pump clips, and slide the pump out of the way. Then remove the 2 motor clips and remove the motor. The coupling is between the motor and gearcase. Hope this helps!

Roper washer will not spin or agitate


Your coupling between the gearcase and the motor has broken. Go to a appliance parts store and ask for a whirlpool washer coupling. Remove the cabinet by taking the 2 screws out just behind the control panel.

remove the whole cabinet.Everything clips together. Pump first, motor, and then coupling. BobH
