Kenmore Series 80 coupling repair
« on: April 25, 2008, 09:33:10 AM »

Hello all, This washer stopped spinning, and the coupling on my washer was in pieces when I turned the machine over. I've ordered the part but can't figure out if I need to remove the cabinet ( or how to remove the cabinet) for repair. The motor assembly is held with two screws attached to clips. Without removing the cabinet I don't think I'll be able to get to the inside screw. Any suggestions?

What you do is remove the 2 Phillips screws that hold the timer/waterlevel/water temp controls and flip that part upwards console and all. Then the case will come off after you pop the S clips in back and unplug the quick connect. the case just tips forward and a little wiggling later it just comes right off. The pump and motor will then be easily accessible

Thank you both for the help - with a bit of instruction and the attached diagrams it took about half an hour to fix, and that counts the time spent cleaning years of grime from the innards. I'll now have a tall cold beer in your honor!D
