Why my crosley washing machine model CAWS823JQO made loud nosie then stopped spining


Likely possibilities:
  1. Coupling between motor and transmission has broken.
  2. Transmission has failed.
Number 1 is cheap and relatively simple to replace. Tip the machine up in front and place a support under the front edge of the cabinet. Look for broken pieces on the floor. See if you can freely rotate the motor shaft without affecting the transmission shaft. Check that the transmission shaft can be turned by hand. If yes to both, replace the coupling. If it breaks again after a short time, transmission is likely bad
Number 2 is expensive and difficult. If the coupling's not broken and the motor is operational, OR the coupling breaks again after only a short time, then replace the transmission, or the whole machine entirely.

KAWS750L Washer; motor runs, no drive to transmission. Have the sides off and looking at motor assembly at bottom. How do you access the broken part between motor and transmission?


That's the drive coupling that is broke you will have to remove the 2 clips that hold the water pump on that has the 2 black hoses going to it then slide the pump straight off the motor shaft. Next you will need to remove the 2 screws going onto the two other clips holding the motor to the transmission then remove the 2 clips and the motor will come off replace the drive coupling with a new one might need a socket and hammer to put new drive coupling ends on make center metal bearing even with motor shat and shaft coming out if the transmission and put the rubber boot on the transmission and replace the motor and clips same order as taking it off hope this helps and good luck.

Ge frontload washer seems like it is not aggitating... what would be the problem???


Hello there:

The first thing to check when your GE washer is not agitating, is the belt. Let me tell you how to check the belt & the clutch with out having to take the washer apart.




The belt: Set the timer in the spin cycle and pull the timer knob to turn the washer on.
If the washer drains the water and then spins the way that it should, this tells you that the motor, belt & clutch are not the reason why your washer won't agitate.
A broken belt could be the reason your washer is not agitating or spinning.



The agitator: After making sure that the belt, motor & clutch are working ok, lets check the agitator.
The agitator uses a plastic agitator coupler that is couple to the transmission shaft by using splines cut in the coupler and on the transmission shaft.
Too much usage or overloading the washer too many times will wear the agitator coupler splines. With out the splines the coupler could not be coupled to the transmission shaft and that could be the cause why your washer is not agitating.




The clutch: A bad clutch could also be the reason the washer won't agitate or spin. Usually when the clutch is bad the washer will be noisy, like when you have bad brakes on your car.


The transmission: The transmission could be the reason your washer is not agitating. A common problem with the transmission is oil leaking right on top of the motor pulley and the belt.
As you can see, there could be different reasons why your GE washer is not agitating. You just need to keep checking each part until you find the problem and replace the part responsible.

My Roper extra large capacity washer is not agitating or spinning but drains. Can you help me figure out the problem?


The draining is the clue.a3f3851.jpg The pump mounts on the motor. The motor is a double shaft type that drives a pump on one side and the transmission on the other.0d81fb3.jpg Between the motor and transmission is a coupling. These couplings break from time to time from a low water heavy load, a rug or comforter usually finishes off a coupling that was already on it's way out.0249487.jpg If it was the lidswitch the pump would not work. I believe it is the coupling. When replacing this part take care not to jam it up against the transmission or motor and cause binding.

After rinse cycle, water drains but laundry does not spin out. Sopping wet clothes.


Could be a bad lid switch.
Could be a bad direct drive coupling.
Could be a bad timer.

Remove the 2 screws holding the control console to the top panel. They are on the left and right corners.Pull the console forward slightly and fold it to the rear of the machine. You will see a wiring plug in the top of the cabinet . Unplug this plug. Use a volt meter set for continuity and place the meter leads in the plug receptacle on the cabinet. One lead on the right hand pin,one lead on the left hand pin. With the lid closed it should read continuity. Open and close the lid while touching the meter leads to the pins,the meter should show contact while closed and no contact while open. If there is no contact,replace the lid switch.

If the lid switch is OK, remove the 2 metal brass clips holding the corners of the cabinet to the back panel.Pull the cabinet forward to remove it. UNPLUG THE WASHER. Get on the floor and remove the wires to the motor. Remove the clips holding the water pump to the front of the motor. Remove the 2 clips holding the motor to the transmission. Remove the motor. There will be a plastic piece on the motor shaft,a rubber gasket,then a plastic piece in the transmission shaft.The plastic pieces have 3 plastic pins on them. They may be broken off. The plastic pieces may also be stripped inside where they mount on the motor and transmission shaft. If these are defective buy a new direct drive coupling and install it. The front of the coupling should be flush with the motor shaft and transmission shaft when correctly installed.

If the direct drive coupling is OK. Replace all the parts and re-assemble the washer. PLUG IT IN. With the lid closed. Set the machine to the final spin cycle and turn it on.If you hear the motor running and no spin,open,then close the lid. If it spins then it is a bad timer.

Won't spin


Faulty Direct Drive Coupling (Whirlpool / Kenmore / Roper / Estate)

The Direct Drive (motor) Coupling may be broken.
Many Whirlpool/Kenmore brands washing machines utilize a small, relatively inexpensive direct drive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other.

It can wear out over time or fail under overloading conditions. This protects your transmission from excessive loading.

All functions operate normally except the machine will not agitate.
The agitator is driven by a couple of different methods. The first is the agitator is splined and slips onto the matching splines of the agitator shaft from the transmission. The second is the use of a bell coupling which is splined to the agitator shaft as well and the agitator snaps onto the coupling. If the agitator does not agitate, first remove the agitator and watch the agitator shaft to see if it is working properly. This will require a small load setting of water and the machine set to run. If the agitator shaft is working properly, it is either the splines on the agitator or the bell coupling that is defective. If the agitator shaft does not work properly, the problem is in the transmission.

Last the huming may be the motor is sized! Done, finished!

Check lid switch for proper operation. Check the switch for continuity. If it is found to be open, replace the switch assembly.
