Default Drive/transmission coupler replacement?
Model Number: 387298   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: More than 10 years

The plastic coupler from my motor to my transmission is broken. Motor spins but the tub does not turn.

Is this a user replaceable part and/or worth repairing?

Machine is maybe 13 years old but has always worked well.

thoughts?

thanks in advance -

Jay

Default successfully replaced the coupling unit..

in case anyone has the same challenge, it turns out that replacing the coupling unit took about an hour and cost $16. Way better than replacing the washing maching.
