Question about KitchenAid KAWS700L Top Load Washer
You may have a damaged or broken motor coupling. Whirlpool manufactured top loading washers (such as your KitchenAid) use a motor coupling between the drive motor and gearcase (transmission) in place of a drive belt. This configuration is known as "direct-drive". If you were washing something as heavy as a down comforter, it may have caused the rubber bushing to shear apart, or broken one of the plastic tines. If you've replaced a lid switch before, replacing a motor coupling is just as easy. The following link explains how:
The part number for a replacement motor coupling is inlcuded in the link I provided. Replacements can be purchased at any of the following websites:
All these sites are reputable and offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites I have listed also included helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying any parts you may need. You can view an illustration of the motor coupling as item 13 under the "Brake, Clutch, Gearcase, Motor and Pump" parts list.
If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.
