Wife was doing laundry, today, and reported a problem. The washer agitated the load and pumped out the water, but did not spin.

I removed the wet clothes and ran a cycle. This time, no agitation, and no spin, but pumped out the water.

Then I tried to turn the agitator by hand at the bottom. At first, there was resistance, and then it began to turn freely, both directions, like it isn't connected to anything, now.


Hi Allen,

I'd first check your motor coupler and see if its worn out(rubber shavings on your floor) or if any of the plastic fingers on it have broken.

Here's the motor coupling for your model:
285753A Motor Coupling

Unplug your washer first, then you can watch this video below and it shows you to how access it and replace it, if needed:

Let us know what you find.
OK, good. I'll get a coupler on-hand so I don't have to take the machine apart, twice. Then let you know the outcome.
Ok, sounds good.:)
Jake - You were spot on! Coupler was rounded out on the transmission side. I replaced that coupler just two years ago, so it threw me that it was bad, again. The replacement has a metal sleeve in both of the plastic spiders, so I hope it holds up better. Took about an hour - worst part was lining up the teeth when installing the motor. I had the washer in a vertical position because our laundry room is so small - may be easier to hook up if the washer is laid on its back as the videos show.

Anyway - thanks! Tip is in your Paypal account.
