whirlpool washer coupler repair question
« on: October 24, 2008, 06:09:35 PM »

I recently repaired a bad coupler on my whirlpool top load washer (thanks to your website).  As I pulled the motor to gain access to the coupler a white piece of cardboard appeared from somewhere, with the 4 corners flipped up.  When I finished the fix, I placed the cardboard piece on the top of the motor, tuckig in the sides w/ the flaps up.  I assumed it was some type of protective cover for the motor.  Is this the correct place for this cardboard piece?

Yes, it's a last-ditch effort to protect the motor in the event of a tub seal leak. It  goes on top as you mentioned.
