Question and Answers

Q:

How do I access the lid switch an on kenmore washer Model Nimber11020897990

Q:

Is it normal for the new motor coupler to fit extremely tight?

A:

Yes, you have the correct motor coupler. If the shafts have any surface rust on them, remove the rust with some fine sandpaper and then the new coupler should slide on easier. It's not uncommon to have to knock the coupler on using a small hammer. When installing the coupler on the input shaft of the gear case and on the motor shaft the coupler should be slid or gently tapped onto the shaft with a small hammer carefully so not to break it. It should be driven up onto the shaft until the end of the shafts is flush with the outer face of the coupler. If the coupler is not slid up flush, it can cause the motor to drag. Also make sure the motor is sitting properly so that the motor shaft and gear case shaft are in line with each other. If the motor is not sitting correctly in the rubber motor mounts it can also cause the motor to drag. The pump should also be sitting correctly. See images below.
