I have a Whirlpool Heavy Duty home washing machine. The spin

Resolved Question:

I have a Whirlpool Heavy Duty home washing machine. The spin cycle has stopped working. The motor hums - sounds like a gear is stripped - but the drum does not spin.   Any ideas?

Ok... one came through, the one that shows the clips (part6)> Am I taking off the ENTIRE cabinet - lifting it off and over the motor and tub?
Expert:  Bryan replied 8 years ago.
just tip cabinet forward and slide it out. I have to get in the shower and get ready for bed gotta get up at 5am. when you get the cabinet off you will see the pump and motor aseembly, remove the clips and pump then remove the screws and clips on motor and the wire plud and the motor will come out then you will see the coupling , one have goes on the motor and the other the transmission and the rubber piece goes in between, then put it back together in reverse, let me know I'll check in morning, thanks Bryan
