My washer will fill but won't agitate, or spin. The timer functions, and the pump drains, ... lid switch functions fine. The agitator is firm, won't move by hand. I replaced the 'drive coupler' two years ago, along with the 'dogs'. I'm suspecting the 'drive-coupler' is shot as this washer is run every day. Anything I should consider before I pull it all apart?

Thanks for all you do

Assuming the motor is running when it should be agitating and spinning, then yes, I'd say the coupler is shot.

Thanks Eric, ...I did pull the motor and coupler, ... the prongs are in ok shape but the center fitting (which fits the shaft) is striped, resulting in the flats being worn round. It's also cracked which I suppose enabled the coupler to begin slipping on the shaft. Trying to find a 'shim' solution until I get a new one. I guess the new ones are reinforced with steel. Thanks very much for the quick reply.
Best, ...Polly147

Default Coupler

Got the motor drive coupler, (needless to say any repair of the bad part failed) ... flipped the washer, dropped the pump and motor, ... replaced the coupler and re-assembled. Took about 15 minutes and we're back in business. Thanks for your help and all you do on a volunteer basis. You guys are the best.
