The shaft to engine has male tapered end and fits very tightly to armature of gen. Remove stator and remove center bolt thru armature. Place a piece of hardwood aganst metal part of armature and rap with hammer (one side then the other). Very carefull not to damage the windings or metal parts of the armature. If it does not come loose in short order apply penetration lubricant and wait for it to soak in. Good luck

My coleman powermate5500 mod 0525500.01 leaks oil between motor and gen. how to fix


The crank shaft seal is bad on the motor. You will need to seperate the motor from the generator to replace the seal. Depending on the seal design, you will have to open the crankcase on the output shaft side to remove the seal.

My son blew up his coleman generator - 5.5hp honda - can't get the armature off the engine shaft - any special tools needed so i can proceed with tearing down the motor


No special tool needed (usually). The armature is resting on a tapered part of the shaft. Assuming that you have removed the stator and have exposed the armature and have removed the center bolt. Apply penetrating oil to shaft so that the oil can enter between shaft and armature (wait for oil to work at least half hour). Hold piece of hardwood against metal part of armature (first one side then other) and rap very firmly with heavy hammer. Be careful not to hit metal directly or wiring. If the oil has done its work, the armature will come off with first couple of hits. If not add more oil and wait. Then try again. Good luck.

Instructions and /or tool for removing generator winding from motor shaft.


The rotor is attached to the crankshaft by means of a tapered shaft. Believe it or not the best way to remove it is to beat on the metal laminations with a plastic dead blow hammer. Hit one side a couple oof times then turn the rotor 180 degrees and hit a couple of times. Keep repeating this until it pops off. Be careful not to hit slp rings, windings, etc... just the metal laminations. You will not hurt. them.

Whirlpool toploader gearbox/clutch removal


Last Night I took the machine apart to find clutch/brake assy ok gearbox was also ok then I noticed shaft coupling was different than new part I had in stock, new part made totally of nylon, old part fitted to machine has steel insert built into nylon. this was not fully located onto motor shaft and the first 1/4" of motor shaft had been stripped back to round ( no flat faces) also inside the steel lined bore of the nylon coupling had been worn to round.I replaced with new coupling of nylon and ensured both nylon parts fully pushed home onto motor shaft and gearbox shaft with any freeplay / gap being allowed in the rubber drive link. This has worked for now but expect trouble in future with worn motor shaft.

there is a coupling between the gearbox and the motor, it is broken, it is easy to replace, and inexpensive
the coupler can be purchased at a local parts store
'Kenmore motor/gearbox coupler' will get it for you, there is only on for all the models.
it is an easy fix
  • unplug washer
  • remove trim ends of control panel
  • remove phillips head screws from bottoms of control panel under where trim was
  • slide control panel forweard & up about 1 inch, then flip over the back of the control panel, do not dislodge the air hose
  • remove brass clips in rear corners of top with screwdriver, remember how they fit
  • unplug lid switch connector
  • lift body 1inch and slide forward to remove
  1. front center is the motor pump and gearbox
  2. do NOT disconnect hoses
  • remove spring clips holding pump on to motor shaft, note where they go for reinstall. there may be a lock screw in the top right clip.
  • swing pump to the left and use a string or bread bag tie to hold it out of the way.
  • remove spring clips holding motor to gearbox shaft, note where they go for reinstall. there may be a lock screw in the top right clip.
  • heave motor forward, to separate the coupling
  • remove coupling halves from gearbox shaft and motor shaft and discard.
  • using a wooden dowel and hammer, on the center of the new coupling halves, drive them onto the motor and gearbox shafts, (dont hit the fingers, they break, note the new couplings have metal centres to solve ongoing problems.)
  • rotate gearbox coupling, 1 up 2 down
  • rotate motor coupling, 2 up 1 down
  • install rubber shock pad on gearbox coupling
  • install motor on shock pad
  • reinstall spring clips and lock screw if fitted (bottom first, rock the motor on rubber shock mount to ease spring clip installation)
  • rotate motor shaft to align with pump input
  • install pump on motor shaft
  • install spring clips and lock screw if fitted
reinstall body in reverse order

it takes less time to do the repair than it takes to type this

the coupling does go bad, Often, very often
one of the two spiders is attached to the motor shaft, one is attached to the gearbox input shaft and the rubber ring mates them together, the motor shaft coupling collapses often,
the coupling is ~$16-$25 depending on the parts sales place.
If you can see the coupling, you probably already have the body off,
If not remove the body
from there its easy to replace

undo 2 spring clips that hold the pump on the outer of the motor,
pull pump forward and off the motor shaft and swing aside,
remove screw from head of spring clip between motor and gearbox, remove this spring clip (remember position)
swing motor against coupling to loosen other spring clip, remove spring clip
pull motor forward and away from gearbox
break couplings off shaft of motor and gearbox.
  • NOTE: new coupling sets have a metal center hub to combat this very common failure,
    ask the parts supplier if they have one with metal hubs,
    if they offer to sell you one identical to the picture, all plastic, old style
Fit new couplings to motor and gearbox shaft using wooden dowel between the teeth, on the hub centers, hit the dowel, not the gear, with a hammer.
fit new rubber ring to gearbox,
install in reverse order
rotate motor to align the teeth
