Washer won't spin, found rubber shavings under unit kenmore 90 series


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Look in the section for the motor, pump gearcase and you'll see the Motor Coupler.

Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive washers use a "Motor Coupler" between the motor and transmission.

It's used as a fail safe device and consists of three parts.

Two of the parts are the same, plastic units with three prongs that fit on one of the motor output shafts and the other on the transmission input shaft. Between them is a rubber piece with six holes.

The power from the motor is transmitted through the rubber piece to the transmission.

The other shaft on the motor directly drives the pump. This is likely why the machine drains.

If the motor coupler is broken, or worn, the motor may not be able to send full power to the transmission for agitating or spinning.

See the following for how to remove the cabinet, pump, motor and motor mounting plate to inspect and replace the motor coupler.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137

If the coupler looks damaged, it's a relatively easy fix.

Pry the plastic pieces from the motor and transmission. Some people use a claw hammer but I've found that using a small (6 inch) pry bar works well.

Carefully fit the plastic pieces over the motor and transmission shafts and press them in place (Use a 1/2" of larger socket to put pressure equally around the pieces.

Put the rubber piece on the transmission plastic piece.

Replace the motor mounting plate.

Carefully line up the plastic prongs on the motor based plastic piece to the three un-used holes in the rubber piece. If they don't line up right, the coupler could be damaged.

Mount the motor, don't forget the two screws, put the pump back on the motor and use its' clips.

Put the cabinet back on, don't forget to plug the lid switch back in and re-mount the console.

Mav39 fills, drains, wont agitate, makes loud riviting like noise instead of agitating. took off agitator and the mechinisim that would activate the agitator isn't moving, but making this loud noise....


There is a coupler if this is a direct drive machine. Tilt the unit back and look under for a pile of rubber shavings or a couple of broken plastic bits. The coupler is easy to change by removing the cabinet with the gold clips at the top. Then remove the clips from the pump and hold that out of the way. Remove the screws and clips from the motor after disconnecting the wiring harness. The coupler is on the shaft of the motor and the gearcase. Replace all three pieces...there are two hard plastic three fingered bits with a rubber isolator.
If you have a belt then it is very likely that you have a bad gearcase and you may consider a new machine for cost reasons. The coupler should be under $25.

The drum is not spinning. I hear a noise like when you stick something in your bike spokes.


Assuming that this is a Kenmore / Whirlpool top loader with a direct drive system, the first thing to check is the motor coupling.

The transmission and motor have plastic parts that connect through a rubber coupling.

pd_0026_110_285753a?$pddetailsth$ #13 on diagram Coupling, motor and isolation Number:661560Substitution:285753A $18.50 If the coupler rubber piece wears out, the pins on the motor and transmission sides will rub together making the sound.

If the coupler looks good the problem is likely in the transmission.

THE KENMORE TOP LOAD WASHER HAS A CLUTCH AND DRIVE COUPLING THAT IS PART OF THE SPIN CYCLE.
THE DRIVE COUPLING ATTACHES THE MOTOR TO THE TRANSMISSION AND IS MADE OF PLASTIC AND RUBBER.
IT COULD BE GETTING HOT AND TORN. THE OTHER POSSIBILITY IS THE CLUTCH MAY BE SLIPPING. THERE COULD BE OIL THAT HAS GOTTEN INTO THE CLUTCH AND SO THE CLUTCH WON'T GRIP. PULL THE CABINET OFF OF THE WASHER OR TIP IT BACK AND CHECK THE FLOOR FOR BLACK OR WHITE SHAVINGS OR OIL. THE SHAVINGS WOULD BE FROM THE DRIVE COUPLING AND THE OIL COULD BE FROM THE TRANSMISSION OR THE SPIN TUBE.

Kenmore Washer-coupling replaced-


Be sure that when you replaced the coupler, that you tapped on the rear (transmission) coupler. Take a long extension and a 9/16" socket and tap it until the shaft is flush with the inside of the coupler. Also, we have found that sometimes shaved rubber from the old coupler isnt rubbing or fell down in the area. Also, if you have it back out, be sure your new coupler doesnt show wear already. That would be an indication of a bad transmission, basket drive, or drum block.
