My Whirlpool Gold Series washer will not pump water out, it will not spin or agitate. Any ideas?
It sounds like the motor coupler is bad. Here is a video that will show you how to repair it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FNRd04vwc4Y

Just to add a tad bit more information. When turning the washer on it makes a whirring noise. I think it is the motor. Is this also another symptom of a bad coupler? Where can I purchase one?
