You must have a whirlpool or kenmore washer.. the hardest part is to get the machine open. let me know what model you have and I can help you...also check to make sure the transmission is not locked up.

Won't spin. makes loud noise when draining and won't spin the basin.

If this is a top loader there is a cupling that is made of rubber and a set of plastic parts that are between the motor and the transmission drive. The plastic has fingers that go into the rubber piece and the fingers shear off , the other end of the motor has the water pump on it so it will pump water out but do nothing else. you have to pull the motor out and replace the set and reasemble.

I had this same problem once and it was pretty simple, I removed the agitator asembly, not 100% sure on your model. and there is a cupling between the moror and the agitotor. the guy at the appliance store saidit was a sacraficial part that brakes when a large load is put on the motor to protect it. usually like a 13.00 piece

Washing machine - Need to replace motor cupling on the kenmore 90 series

you have to access the coupling by removing the housing of the machine,

you can tilt it a little bit to the back so that the motor is in your front.
remove the water pump clamps so that you can remove the pump.

unscrew the screws holding the clamps of the motor.( hold the motor tight, it is heavy)
remove the clamps, the motor will fell..

remove the motor and you can see that the coupling is attached to its shaft.

one coupling goes to the shaft of the motor, the other coupling goes to gear box shafting, and the rubber ring is in between the two coupling.

normally, only one coupling is damaged and you can just replace that coupling. you have the other two parts as spare.

i hope this would solve your problem.

tnx 4using fixya,

Kenmore 90 Series Washing Machine

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
