My Inglis supper capacity washer just stopped agitating and

This answer was rated:

My Inglis supper capacity washer just stopped agitating and just seems to growl when I turn it on. It is not leaking water and it drains and fills well but it doesn't spin or agitate and just growls. There are dark scraps near the top of the basin ( I think from the spinner brakes) but they have been there before and may be a separate problem.

It Pumps out fine and when it fills it doesnot growl.

replace the motor coupler and you can get it at a local appliance parts dealer near you which cost about $20 and what you do is remove the screws holding the control panel down, raise and tilt back, unplug the lid switch and pop loose the two hold down clamps, slide cabinet off base, unclamp the pump, pull back, unclamp the motor and set off, swap the coupler ,,, Glad i could help you with your problem so please leave me a positive rating of one of the top 3 smiley faces for me before you leave for my time and knowledge, if you cant leave a positive rating then please do not leave one at all, a lower rating counts against us ,, thanks
