During the spin cycle the water drains but it doesn't spin. Clothes were stuck to the sides of the washer but completely soaked.


Greetings,
if your washer will fill up and make the sound like its working, but not agitate, and it drains the water, but will not spin..The most likely culprit is a broken drive coupling. I would fill it up on a small load and see if it does what I said.....if so, lean the washer over so you can work under the front of it. there will be two clips that hold the pump on..remove those, but remember how they came off...pull the pump off the motor and set to the left side. .. next, there are usually two screws in the two clips that hold the motor on. Remove those screws and remove those two clips making sure you see how to re-install them.. while removing the last motor clip, be careful as the motor will fall out....on the one side of motor will be a coupling...this may have a broken ear or be split..its possible, it will be ok...now, look into area where the motor fits and you will see a black round piece of rubber with holes in it..this sits over another coupling on the transmission shaft...this is either broken, or the motor coupling is or a combo of both. if broken, remove and order yourself a drive coupling..re-install and put everything back in reverse order..when installing these you will have to drive them on with something that fits between the center of the new coupling, so you do not break the ears off..I use a deepdish socket....it works well with installing the new coupling on the transmission..........if by any chance the coupling does not look broken, its possible to be rounded and slipping on the shaft..if you determine its not...then the basket drive or transmission is gone out...this time you will need a service person to repair......Bruce Denton ps..if you find out i was correct , please let me know here..thanks

Replacing the coupler so machine spins


Cabinet Removal


1. Remove the two small phillips screws on the front-lower portion of the control panel or in the rear corners.

2. Flip the whole control panel from the bottom, towards the back , so it is resting against the machine.

3. Remove the plastic tube at the water level sensor on the control panel.

4. Now go ahead and disconnect the spin switch wires from the panel.

5. Take off the big clips, one on each side, with a big screw driver at the top of the cabinet.

6. Slide the whole cabinet forward, by grabbing each side and pulling with your hands. I see you have the whole cabinet put to the side already.

Replace coupler on kenmore top loader would like diagram


Go to searspartsdirect.com. You will have to put in the model number to do a search. The search will produce an exploded view along with the parts list and prices. If you're wanting to replace the coupling; the easiest approach is to lay the washer face down. Remove the motor mounts and replace the coupling. The couplings are plastic and fit tightly to both shafts. Pry coupling loose from motor and washer with a screwdriver. Install one of the coupling halves on each shaft. Sit the rubber center section on to the motor half of the coupling and install motor and motor mounts.

Cannot get new motor coupling installed


You will have to remove the motor to get access.
Easiest way is to start by removing the cabinet. With the cabinet off you will have access to the motor mounting clips which will allow you to remove the motor and install the new motor coupling.

Let me know if you need a walk through.
Good luck!

Washing machine - Need to replace motor cupling on the kenmore 90 series


you have to access the coupling by removing the housing of the machine,

you can tilt it a little bit to the back so that the motor is in your front.
remove the water pump clamps so that you can remove the pump.

unscrew the screws holding the clamps of the motor.( hold the motor tight, it is heavy)
remove the clamps, the motor will fell..

remove the motor and you can see that the coupling is attached to its shaft.

one coupling goes to the shaft of the motor, the other coupling goes to gear box shafting, and the rubber ring is in between the two coupling.

normally, only one coupling is damaged and you can just replace that coupling. you have the other two parts as spare.

i hope this would solve your problem.

tnx 4using fixya,

Does not spin


there is a coupling between the motor and gearbox, that fails.
it is a simple repair, and well worth trying

remove cabinet
  • pop off edge trims from control console
  • remove screwss from under edge trim
  • slide console forward and up ~1inch
  • flip the console over the back of the washer, the hinges are plastic and a little fragile
  • remove brass clips holding cabint inplace remember how they fit
  • lift cabinet ~1inch and remove forward
repair coupling
  • motor gearboxpump is at front bottom center
  • remove lock screw from clip holding pump to motor
  • remove two spring clips
  • pull pump off motor and swing sideways on hoses, tie off to left with a string
  • remove lock screw from clip holding motor to gearbox
  • remove two spring clips
  • pull motor off rubber coupling
  • pull nylon spider off gearbox shaft
  • pull nylon spider off motor shaft
  • install new spiders to shafts. Use a hammer to strike a wooden dowel on the center of the spider, dont hit the legs of the spider they break off

    Note the new coupling spiders have metal centers to stop further breakage, common fault
  • turn gearbox spider 1 leg up two legs down
    turn motor spider , 2 leg up 1 leg down so the spiders will interlock
  • install new rubber coupling on gearbox spider, install motor on coupling.
reassemble all clips and screws in reverse order
reassemble case in reverse order
on reassemble ensure plastic level sensing hose is not dislodged from water level switch body

takes longer to type than to do the repair
at parts store "Kenmore gearbox coupling" will get the correct part
