Most of the time coupler will be fine. but it could be broke b/c of tranny. spin by hand make sure tranny will spin freely both ways. make sure it adjitates and spins. then replace coupler start it up. the good thing is that a coupler is cheap so if it ends up being bad you didnt spend much anyways.

If this is a Whirlpool manufactured TOP LOADER, a no spin problem can have several causes. Most commonly, this is caused by either a lid switch malfunction or a broken motor coupling. The following link explains how you can diagnose the problem and repair it yourself:

Read through the link provided and let me know if you have any questions. I have included parts resources and instructions on how to replace each part as well.

Won't spin. The coupler is good and bypassed the lid switch. Mother-in-law heard loud rattling sound. Is tranny shot?

very possible,but a chance that the clutch,and or basket drive has worn out,becareful that the motor mount hasnt broken and the coupling hasnt lost connection to tranny,also,the couplings dont always "break"-sometimes they strip or round out

Washer does not agitate after filling with water

does it spin?
sounds like your coupling is broke.It takes the place of the belt if it breaks it won't spin or agitate. it will still pump though.

Whirlpool ultimate care 2

ngafm at your service,

Things wear out! So is life!
Sounds like the belt wore and slipped and broke!
Is there any power to the washer?

How old is the washer?Sounds old.

Only a trained laundry tech can make the electronic diagnoses.

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!

You will be fine
Bless You ngafm

Appliance rewiring wiring WIRLPOOL ULTIMATE CARE II

The Whirlpool Ultimate Care II cannot be outfitted for a standard 115 VAC wall outlet. Your dryer is a 220 VAC appliance. It needs to have it own dedicated 30 amp, 220 VAC circuit with the proper outlet and power cord installed. The dryer heating circuits and timer will not run on 115 VAC. I think you need to reconsider what you are about to do...
