I need step by step instructions on how to replace a motor coupler in a sears kenmore washing machine, model # 11092586400. The part # that is being replaced is 336164 or substitute part # of 285735a.

The motor and coupler looks like this:
On these machine you flip up the controls theyou unplug the lid switch because it is in the cabinet. You can then pop the s clips on this puppy, tilt the cabinet towards ya and remove it

Once the case is off you can get to the innards
The pump snaps onto the motor with clips and the motor clips onto the ******.
Tip it over on its back and that makes it easy to install the coupler
When installing the new coupler take the time not to jam the coupler up
into the ****** or motor and bind up the works. Line em up and snap er back together.

How to change a coupler on top load direct drive whirlpool and kenmore washers

The following is a step-by-step instructions on replacing a drive coupler on whirlpool and kenmore direct drive washers. The part number for the coupler is 285753A.1)tip the unit back and lean it against the wall
2)remove the 2 clips on the top and bottom of the white pump and the pump will side off the motor shaft.
3)You can kind of bend the pump and wedge it up out of your way to the left.
4)There will be two clamps holding the motor in place but they will have either 1/4 inch or 5/8 screws that you have to remove. Then pry these two clamps off the motor with a flathead screwdriver. (be sure to remove motor harness and the two wires off the capacitor)
5)The motor will then drop down and your coupler will be attached to that side of the motor shaft. The other side of the coupler will be on the transmission shaft. Pry both of these peices off (theres also a black rubber piece that is in between the two plastic pieces) which is what is on the ground it will be probably all torn up.
6)the new coupler will have an aluminum insert in the middle so you will need to take a deep well socket turn it over so the small drive side is on the coupler and use it to hammer on the new coupler to the transmission and motor shafts.
-make sure that you get the aluminum flush with the ends of the shafts. You dont want it to go on too far or not far enough.
-a trick for the motor is to hold it in between your knees and hammer the coupler on i use a pair of channel locks as my hammer and the socket.
7)place the rubber piece one the legs of the coupler on the transmission side and you have to line up the legs on the motor side to put the motor back into place. (make sure the 4 rubber grommets that are on the motor are all in place).
-you can spin the motor from the front shaft to rotate the coupler and make it easier to line it up.
8) put clamps back into place and put the pump back on the motor shaft
-to line up the shaft with the pump you can spin the coupler with your fingers to spin the opposite side of the motor shaft allowing it to line up with the pump.

Hope this helps _MJ_

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


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;

here is the link to that video

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

My washer will fill and empty but will not agitate or spin

You have a direct-drive washing machine and the motor coupler (part number 285753A) is broken. It costs about $20 or cheaper and labor will cost you about $200. You can save the labor cost by following the steps below.

Motor Coupler Replacement Procedure
  1. Safety first. Unplug the machine.
  2. Remove the screws holding the console on the back of the machine. On some models, the screws are hidden under the console's removable end caps. To remove, pull the top of the end caps to the front of the machine. On some models, the console is secured to the machine by clips under the front corners of the console. Use a putty knife and insert the blade under the front corners of the console then push it until the clips are released.
  3. Lift the console then flip it to the back of the machine.
  4. Disconnect the lid switch wiring harness connector from the body of the machine.
  5. Remove the two clips holding the body to the back of the machine. Insert a flat-bladed screwdriver in the lip of the clip and and push it towards the back of the machine.
  6. Lift the lid and grab the front rim of the cabinet. Brace the cabinet with your knee then rock it to the front of the machine and pull it all the way.
  7. Pry the clips securing the pump to the motor. Turn the clips 90 degrees and remove it from the motor.
  8. Pull the pump out of the motor spline.
  9. Disconnect the wiring harness from the motor terminals.
  10. Remove the 1/4" hex-head screws from the clips that hold the motor in place.
  11. Pry the bottom clip away from the motor.
  12. Hold the motor at the bottom with one hand while prying the top clip away.
  13. Remove the clips and pull the motor out.
  14. Remove the motor coupler from the motor using a claw hammer.
  15. Reach behind the coupler in the transmission using a short flat screwdriver and gently pry it out of the spline.
  16. Place the new coupler on the spline of the transmission. Use a spark plug socket and hammer to tap the coupler into position until it is even with the spline.
  17. Do the same with the coupler on the motor and put the rubber coupling on the coupler.
  18. Align the holes on the rubber coupling and the coupler in the transmission in such a way that they fit together when the motor is installed.
  19. Put the clips back on the motor and the screws holding it.
  20. Reconnect the wiring harness to the motor terminals.
  21. Install the pump, the cabinet, and the console in reverse of the steps in removing them.

Drum not moving

The belt that moves the drum is broken resulting in the rubber shreds you see. If you feel that you can replace the belt, I can talk you through it. Other wise, it is best to have a repairman do it.
