Mailbag: Kenmore Washer Overflows After Replacing Drive Coupler

Kerry wrote:
Hello boss. Quick thank you and question. I have Kenmore 70 series heavy duty Wash machine that recently broke. I fixed it by replacing the direct drive coupler (using your diagrams!). After a put it together, I ran a test load and my washer overflowed (this wasn't happening before). Is it possible that I fried the water level control switch? Everything's plugged in properly. Is there a float or something else I'm missing? Wife wants to buy a new washer, but I think it'll work fine if the water will shut off. Thanks.

Ain't no thang, m'main man. You probably just got the air tube for the pressure switch pinched when you re-installed the cabinet. This photo 'splains it all to you. Yea verily, flip that console up, unpinch that puppy and marital bliss shall be restored unto thee.

Go whup up on that bad boy!

We just wanted to say THANK YOU for your expertise Samurai Repair Man-San and to all of the other people who posted on this site. We just replaced a coupler on a Kenmore washer and saved $150! The information we found on this website was incredibly helpful... thanks again to everyone.

Absolutely concur on the previous comment left! My dad thought we needed a new motor for our whirlpool. Far from it! I don't mind doing the extra work and learning at the same time in order to save a buck!

We made the above mistake when putting the cabinet back on, so this is a butt saver fo sho!

This sounds like the problem I've introduced after giving the pipes all a good clean out on my Zanussi so thanks, I'll go and have a look. Unfortunately your photo link no longer works - do you have it elsewhere? Andrew.
