ok thats why. open the lid and look towards the back where it hinges up, in the middle there should be a silver or white tag with the model and serial # XXXXX it , let me know, I'm trying to help but its hard without model # XXXXX there are thousands of different models on the market today. thanks Bryan

thanks for atleast telling me where to find the numbers ok heres the numbers model 110 22036 100 serial num cl(NNN) NNN-NNNN type 118 sorry for all the trouble i just ad a bad 5 years just had a neck fusion and had a back fusion 5 years ago and on ss so its hard for me to do all the things and i appreciate it can these numbers help you

thats better it does have the motor coupling in this and its probably the problem for sure. this drains right? but doesnt spin. click here to see parts in this machine. I'm going to try to get you the diagrams in a minute. sorry to hear your having health problem best wishes on that. I'll be back shortly. click here .
ok got it all now. click here for all the diagrams.!retrieve.pd?pop=true&modelNumber=110.22036100&pop=flush click on control panel on the sub components list and you will see two end caps # XXXXX and #11 they snap offby using a screw driver and going in from the back and putting it in the top of caps and pry up and forward. once those are off take the screws out in the front on both sides and follow the video I sent you from there. these are the instuctions to get to the coupling even though the machine doesnt look excatly like your they come apart the same you will see if you watch the whole video. hope this helps and dont forget to press accept or I dont get paid for my work. if you have any trouble you can still come back and ask me more questions at no axtra cost. I'm hitting the hey soon though but check early in the morning like 5am and if I see you need more help I'll answer then ,thanks Bryan

yes its just like the video, its underneith and you can tip the machine up and see this between the motor and transmission. but it does come apart just like the video. I have to go do a job in a bit but will be back later. if you need more help, thanks Bryan
