Question and Answers


My washer will pump water out but why won't it agitate or spin?


I must assume the motor will begin running once the washer is filled and I assume it will run and drain the water but just no agitation action or spinning action. If this is your symptom, the likely failure is a broken motor coupler. To access and replace the motor coupler will require removing the washer cabinet and motor.

  • First, disconnect the power cord from the power source.

  • The console/control panel must be placed into the service position by removing each screw going through the back of the rear panel and into the console end caps. Slide the console towards the front of the washer and then lift it and hinge it over the rear panel

  • Disconnect the 3 wire lid switch harness plug located on the top. Pop the two (2) gold colored cabinet clips off as shown in the image below.

  • Place the tip of a flat tipped screw driver down into the first valley and then push the handle end to the rear of the washer to pop off the cabinet clips.

  • Open the lid and grab the opening and tilt the top of the washer cabinet forwards just a few degrees and then walk it backwards and off.

  • Remove the water pump by prying the two (2) pump retainer clips off.

  • Leave the two (2) pump hoses connected to the pump and shove the pump over to the left and out of the way of the motor.

  • Disconnect the motor wire harness plug from the motor.

  • Pry the two (2) motor retainer clips off. Note: if there is a screw threaded through the motor retainer clips, remove the screws before prying the motor retainer clips off.

  • Remove the motor.

You now have access to the motor coupler. The motor coupler consists of three (3) parts. One fits on the gear case input shaft, one fits on the motor shaft and the rubber isolator links the two together once the motor is reinstalled. The motor coupler is part #285753A. I added a link to Sears Parts Direct with the motor coupler looked up for you. Click on "Coupler" to open link.

See images below for further instructions.
