Hi,

What is the model number of the washer?
Please modify your first post to include the model number.

I believe the LSQ sorta gives it away :)

Try a new drive coupling.

You can see from the time stamps on the post that he edited his post after I asked him to.
Before he did that the model number was not there.

I believe Repair-man is correct. Check the coupler first.

This drive coupling goes between the transmission and the motor and is a piece of cake to fix. The secret is knowing how to remove the cabinet. To do so you need to flip up the control panel and pop the S clips off the body and rear wall. this will allow access to the internal workings. The pump just clips onto the motor ,so remove that first,next the motor just clips to the tranny,remove the motor(I unplug the harness) the little darling will be right there or whats left of it anyway.All ya gots ta do is line up everything and snap that puppy back together. Easier than falling off of a log backwards and not near as complicated. :2funny:
