Question about KitchenAid KAWS850LE Top Load Washer
My washer will fill up and drain but will not spin or agitate. In those cycles you can hear the motor run i think but therfee is no movement in the tub. i looked underneath and saw a belt but i cant seem to find the pulley. What do i do now? Thanks
Rick, for the posted model. This is a direct drive washer, no belt. As long as you are draining, I believe you have a broken motor coupler, about a 19.00 part. Check out the attachment, look at # 13. One end to the motor, the other to the trans. You will have to remove the cabinet, pump and motor to get at it. Easy job. Catriver.

The back panel is very simple to remove (10 screws) and provides wide open access to the belt. New belt costs $18 a service rep will charge you $50 plus plus $150 home service charge. Having both the Asko washer and drier for about six years, I have experienced multiple service repair bills that probably equal the value of buying new machines, so I now do the repairs myself, in fact I just removed the back panel on my washer about an hour ago to replace the washer motor (to the tune of $278). I'll stick with American made in the future or maybe that means Chinese made?
