  • This is the coupler .If you locate the motor underneath the washer,than look for this part right where motor joins the transmission.

Replaced the lid switch on my top loading washer and it fills with water and it still wont start.

There are a couple things that could cause that

1) The water level switch,but if it filled to normal level and the water stopped that is pretty unlikely.

2) the motor,if it just sits there silent and no humming/buzzing noise the motor is most likely not the problem,if a heavy buzzing is heard the motor needs to be replaced.

3) again if it just sits there and wont make any sounds no matter where its set at,the timer is the very probable trouble.

I hope this helps you diagnose your washer trouble,

Unit is Whirlpool Ultimate Care II (Bout 6 years old) Washer has stopped mid cycle, will not drain. Can re-start cycle and unit will agitate, but stops after a few minutes. Still not draining water...Makes...

turn the unit up and look under unit. there is a coupling device called a drive coupler that is between the motor and the transmission.. it is made of plastic and has a piece that fits over the shaft of the motor and a piece that fits over the input shaft on the transmission. there is a rubber piece that connects the two pieces and this is like a shear pin on a tractor if to much stress of unit binds the coupling will break... check this as it has three teeth on each side that align in the rubber bushing when broke the motor will turn but will not be able to turn the transmission... if this is good then check your pump assembly remove hose and have a few large towels ready as there will be water. make sure nothing obstructing pump and inside freely turns . hope this helps you out

The spin cycle only makes a buzzing sound and does nothing. It is only about 8 years old and is labled Heavy Duty Super Capacity Plus 7 cycle.....model # LSR723300. Thank you, Hank

tried looking up your model number but it didn't come up,check it again.most likely the motor coupling broke.take out the two screws that hold the top console in place,flip up the console,with a screw driver pop the two metal clips,stick a screw driver in the front hole and on top of the clip and push back to the back wall and the clip will pop to the right clip you'll see a wire connector,disconnect it that's the lid switch harness,open the lid,grab the frame,tilt it back and slide it out,remove the frame.remove the two clips and slide the pump out,remove the two screws and clips and slide out the motor,on the back of the motor you'll see the coupling,it has like three arms sticking off of it,if they are broke then you need to replace the coupling,pop off the other half off the tranny.tap on the new coupling,slide the rubber piece onto the tranny piece and then line up the motor coupling to fit into the rubber on the tranny part of the your parts store and give them the model number and they will sell you the correct part.good more thing,check the four corners of the motor,if any of the rubber spacers are off of the motor,pull it off the frame and slide it back on the corner of the motor or you'll never line it up.

Washer will fill with water but will not go into any other cycle- just hear a light buzzing sound-

sounds like you have a bad drive coupling, if it's the coupling you will hear the motor run but it will not agitate or spin but the water will pump out. the couplings cost about $12.00

Washer not spinning


If you are neither spinning nor agitating and you can hear the motor running (humming or buzzing) the the problem is with the coupling. See the first link below to repair.

If the motor does not run, only fills, no drain, no buzz no hum then the problem is most likely with the lid switch, see the second link.There is video near the bottom of that page showing how to replace it. Let me know if this helps.

My washer fills and drains with water, but is making a buzzing noise and nothing is "spinning."

sounds like your coupling is faulty. it is a common fault with this unit. the coupling goes between the motor and gearbox, it is designed to break to protect motor or gearbox.if u r confident reply back and i will guide u thru changing coupling.

Washer fills up for rinse cycle put never actually spins

Hello, from the limited information I have this sounds like it's going to be a broken coupling. Kenmores are usually direct drive machines made by whirlpool, this means they don't have a belt. Instead the transmission is connected directly to the motor via a coupling. This is what a coupleing looks like: 0c6b869.jpg To confirm this pull the machine forward enough that you can lean it back and it will stand back under it's own weight. Wedge something underneath the chasis so it does not fall on you while your accessing the bottom. Go under the Machine and locate the motor, You will see the pump connected to the motor connected to the transmission. 1. Unplug the wire harness from the motor then. 2. Use a screw driver remove the 2 clips holding the pump in place and remove or push the pump out of the way. 3. You will need to remove the 2 screws from the brackets holding the Motor in place with a nut driver. 4. With a screwdriver remove the 2 clips holding the motor in place (be carefull to support the motor as the clips comes off) 5. remove the motor and drop it onto the floor. Now you will see the side on the motor the other side on the transmission the rubber connector inbetween. Replace the coupling if broken or worn and reassemble the washer in reverse order. Now you should be all set. Be aware you may smell rubber on the first couple loads this is normal after replacing a coupling. Good Luck!! if you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Mike p.s Please remember to rate my solution since this helps me to help other people :) Thanks!
P.s Remember to unplug the power prior to servicing.

Stopped during wash cycle and started making a loud noise

Sounds like your motor coupling is broken. It's not a big thing so don't worry to much. It only costs about 10 dollars and is easy to repair. The motor coupling sits between the motor and the transmission and is what spins the transmission when the motor spins it. It breaks from age or from over loading the machine to many times. To fix, just unplug the washer and tip it back so you can work under it comfortably. Remove the wire harness connected to the motor. Next, there are two clamps holding the motor up. Remove the screws and pop off the clamps with a flat head. Be careful because once you get one clamp off the motor will fall so hold it and don't smash your fingers. The motor coupling will come out with it. Put your new one on, it only goes on one way. Put the motor back and hook it all back up and you will be good to go again. You should be able to get a motor coupling easy as they are pretty common. Just check with your local appliance repair shop. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this was helpful to you. Good luck and I am glad I could help you out.
