Whirlpool washing machine does not agitate or spin

Check for a broken motor coupler between your motor and transmission. Pull washer away from wall and tilt the back against the wall to look under it. You may find some rubber or hard plastic pieces lying under it. To replace it you have to remove the water pump thats attached to the motor by removing two clips. Then remove the motor in same way. Then you have access to the coupler parts. Remove them with a screwdriver.

If the model number is correct, the Motor Control Unit (MCU) is located in the bottom of the washer on the right hand side (as viewed from the front). You can access the MCU by removing the lower toe panel under the door, or by removing the back panel of the washer.

The access screws for the toe panel are under the bottom front edge of the washer. You may have to prop the two front feet of the washer up for better access (a 2x4 works well for this). With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off.

The removal of the back panel should be self explanatory. Just remove the screws around the entire perimeter of the back panel and remove.

HINT: It may be easier to remove the front and back panels to have full access to the MCU from both sides.

The following websites have excellent exploded view parts diagrams of your washer to assist you in locating and properly identifying the components of your appliance:

The MCU is listed as item 1 under the "Pump and Motor Parts" section.

If you have any questions about this repair, please post back and let me know. I hope this is helpful to you.

Cannot get new motor coupling installed

You will have to remove the motor to get access.
Easiest way is to start by removing the cabinet. With the cabinet off you will have access to the motor mounting clips which will allow you to remove the motor and install the new motor coupling.

Let me know if you need a walk through.
Good luck!

Broken belt

Hi ya,

Replacing the belt on some whirlpool Washing machines.

remove lower access panel. remove the 3 screws securing the pump and remove pump from motor shaft. The pump should drop low enough that you will not need to remove the pump hoses. Once the pump is removed, the belt can be installed around the motor pulley and idler. Replace pump.

Heat strip is to hot on freezer door frame whirlpool frige sxs.....

Two things can cause this:

1. Dirty coils.
2. Bad condensor fan motor (this cools the coils). The fan motor can be accessed from the back by removing the lower panel.

Can't remove motor from dryer

you need to pretty much disassemble the whole machine. the top cover comes off, the front panel with door comes off. the drum lifts out to access the motor as it is bolted to the floor.

Whirlpool ultimate Care II will not spin and makes a loud noise, I did get it to drain the water.

The usual culprit is the motor-transmission coupler. This is located between the motor and the transmission. You need to remove the pump and then the motor to access it.
