Washer not spining Top loader part I

There are a couple of key parts in makeing the tub of the washing machine spin and here are some of the ways you can test whats wrong with your washer and why it is not spining. The most popular for all direct drive units is of course the drive couple which is the small plastic and rubber piece that attaches the motor to the transmission these tend to break more often then any other piece due to when made for manufacturers they do not have any metal on the three pronged connector nor in the center the replacement coupler does come with a metal washer in the center which prevents the actual spining stress caused on the piece to break the small arms that come off the connector. the best way to test for the coupler is by visual inspection so remove the cabinet, pump and motor and assure that the drive couple has not broken at all. if you need a video of how to replace the drive coupler click here

Another problematic area would be the clutch that is connected to the transmission. One of the easiest ways to check the clutch is to set the unit to spin with no clothes on the inside. While the unit is spining use the palm of your hand and press your palm against the inside wall of the inner tub if the tub slows or stops this would mean that the clutch is worn or defective and would need to be replaced. Here is also a video of how to replace the clutch click here
there are also other parts that cause the unit to spin such as the motor, transmission, and timer and these will be discussed in part 2 So look for Washer not spining Top loader part II Thanks again for using Fixya
