The noise coming from the motor means it is running but cannot drive the drive pulley and the pump pulley because the drive belt is either broken or has slipped off. The drive pulley and the pump are driven by a single belt. Replace the drive belt if broken or loose and has slipped off. Disconnect power then drain the water manually by placing the end of the drain hose into a bucket or a shallow basin. Position the bucket/basin as low as possible to extract as much water from the tub. Once drained, lay the machine on its back to access the belt under the machine. When replacing the belt, wrap it on the motor and the pump pulleys then on the drive pulley. Turn the drive pulley in such a way that the belt wraps around the motor pulley, pump pulley, and the drive pulley.

Sounds like the motor coupling is bad- it keep the motor and transmission safe when overloaded and its cheap, if the motor is making noise that's the place I'd start. After that it's the motor (make sure it has power when it should) or the transmission- both not cheap.

Makes a clicking noise when its time to agitate or spin


This advice applies to MOST Kenmore, Roper, Estate or any other Whirpool manufactured top loading washing machines.

If the washer will fill and drain, but won't agitate or spin, you may have a broken motor coupling. The noise of the motor engaging, lack of agitation and ability to still drain are the usual symptoms. This is a common fail item with this model washer through normal wear and tear. Newer versions of the coupler are more resilient and resist breaking. The following link explains how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385252-replacing_motor_coupling_whirlpool_top

The motor coupling is located between the drive motor and the transmission and takes the place of a drive belt. They do wear out and can break. The replacement part number is included in the link I provided and is an improved upgraded coupling that is more resilient. It should last longer. If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

A replacement coupler can be purchased on line at appliancepartspros.com for about $11. Just use the part number in the link and "Search by Part Number" for your search criteria.

NOTE: I recognize these common symptoms, but you didn't post a brand name or model number. If your washer is not one of these brands, please post back and let me know.

I have a Whirlpool Washer Model LXR6232EQ0. Yesterday something happened after it drained during the rinse cycle. It wouldn't spin. It makes a noise like the moter is trying to spin but there is a slight tinkle once in a while. Could it be the motor coupling or do you think it is the clutch. The agitator doesn't spin at all. does it have a belt?

if it wont drain , check your lid switch, check out your motor coupler, if it will not agitate and spin, replace your motor coupler, if it agitates and dont spin, replace your lid switch.

Washer spins agitates, but will not drain


Possible your outlet filter is blocked; find out where it is from your manual, clean it out and re-fit. Also try the spin only function to see if it drains.
