The machine has been making a noise during spin. This morning it quit spinning. I found a broken motor coupling and replaced it. I'm confidant, after 2 tries, the coupler is on there right but I have a noise during spin.

Take the agitator and inner tub out then try it on spin and see if the noise is gone. Check the drive block.

Use a 1/2" ratchet extension on it to remove it.

Let us know how it goes.:)

It looks like you're almost there. If you have the 7/16" bolt out, pull up on the bottom of the two piece agitator and both pieces will come out together. Occasionally they can be a real bear to get unstuck and off the agitator post. If that happens and you don't have a spare dryer belt laying around, pick up some small diameter but strong rope and a friend. Make a 4'-5' circle and tie it off. One guy on each side of the machine, put the rope around the agitator then push the sides of the circle under the agitator. Pull up at the same time. Make sure there isn't a light above the washer
