Location

The coupler is located near the bottom of the washer between the motor and the transmission.

Failure symptoms

When the couple fails, the washer will not agitate or spin even though the motor can be heard to run.  Washer will fill and drain.

Diagnosis

Remove coupler and inspect the “fingers” for breakage.  Compare your coupler with the picture on this page.

Bring your “coupler” in for free confirmation that it is good/bad or call the U-FIX-IT store for free assistance with diagnosis.
