Question about Washing Machines
Yes it can be motor coupling problem or motor related problem.Both the motor coupling and motor itself needs to be checked.
Motor coupler 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.
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.
But if both the motor coupling and motor checks out ok then the transmission and agitator assembly itself needs to be checked.
