THANK YOU!!! Perfect instructions – was fully apart in minutes & coupler
clearly broken!

lmhunsaker12 says:

Thank you so much!!!! We had to replace the coupler, and this helped
tremendously!!! Great video!

Ryan Ferguson says:

Thanks Mike! Great explanation. I was going to attempt this on my own but
I’m glad I found your video. Made me much more confident I could do the
repair. On a side note I just fixed a dryer belt on my neighbor’s dryer
while he was out of town hunting. With four kids his wife couldn’t have
waited a week for him to return. Never tried that before and it went well.
The following day MY washer coupler went. Your helpful video was my reward
for helping my neighbor yesterday :o)

Gabriella Titocca says:

Awesome! It cost me $5.95 to fix a dead washing machine. You are the MAN!.
You’re the bomb. I could not have even put the body back without you!
Excellent tutorial. I saw a few and this is the best hands down. I live in
NYC area and guys won’t come into the house for less than $150. God knows
what I saved! What can I say? You can have my old lady tonight for a while!
This was great. The second time I fixed my machine from YouTube. 1st time
was the agitator dogs. Cute smile too. Thank YOU!

Mark MacDonald says:

Great video, I think my problem is actually the clutch but your video
helped me diagnose the problem. Thanks

appliancemike says:

@Stimpy2301 Yeah man, There is residual water, but in out redux version of
this video, we address that matter. Thanks!

shanexu3 says:

Thank you for your video. It helped me fix my washer.

lotushand says:

I cannot thank you enough for this tutorial! We were able to make a 10 year
old, $50 washer run like new again in about an hour. The washer broke late
Saturday night which caused us to panic, but we figured out what the issue
was and watched your video and we’re washing clothes for the week as I type
this. Five of the six plastic pegs had snapped off, and the rubber was so
broken down that none of the peg holes were even remaining. Seriously,
thank you so, so much!

ApplianceMike you saved my LIFE! I’ve been wearing dirty whitey tighties
for weeks. Thanks bud!!!

David Jones says:

Excellent – I really appreciate your efforts to help those of us who want
to do our own repairs and maintenance. Thanks again.

Jared M says:

I actually left the pump hoses attached and they didn’t get in the way.
Less messy clean up. The hardest part of this whole thing is getting the
coupler parts to line up when installing the motor.

mistfam says:

Yay!! I just fixed my washer!!! cost me $4.88. I am woman, hear me roar!
lol thanx so much for the awesome vid, you just saved a single mom a ton a

narcissus197 says:

THANKYOU!!! This worked a charm… You got me over here feeling like the
maytag man himself… lol Thanks man saved me from buying a new machine.

hvyhitter says:

What a great detailed video No nonsense. Very well described. Gives me
confidence in taking a look at this job. We have a maytag that is going
slow. your video helped think about the job and what is in there. I
probably have a transmission or motor problem. Mine just slows down and
makes a rubbing sound. We will see. I doubt my washer comes apart THAT
well. I guess we will see. Thanks!! My wife and I thought that was OUR 3
year old crying in the background 🙂

Jim C. says:

Thank you, Mike! You helped me a lot and proved that YouTube is good for
more than baby videos and smut.

RubenVill says:

This video showed me how to easily remove the housing and now my washer is
FIXED! I would hear a hum of motor when I turned it on. I diagnosed it as
transmission issue but being able to get to it I just rotated it a bit and
it’s been working now for a few months. Gives me time to save $ to replace

Hoosier Momma says:

This is incredible, thank you SO much! You’re instructions were so simple
and clear, even this stay at home mom was able to repair my washer in no

Tim Nye says:

Good Job. I personally put the rubber boot on the transmission side. Each
to their own. Also- why remove the hoses from pump? Simply rotate pump
toward left side. (I have a long screwdriver that I place in the hole on
bottom left of frame. This keeps pump out of the way.) Removing the hoses
is more effort and possibly opens the possibility of leakage greater than
just leaving them alone.Be sure to turn the transmission shaft (spline as
you called it) to test if the transmission is locked.

William Thalin says:

This is awesome!!! Thank you a ton! Thank God for the internet!

SuperPhantom501 says:

don’t think i needed to remove the hoses from the pump.

26jwilliams says:

thanks this video explain the whole process now my wahser works thatnks alot

moto27cm says:

This is also applicable to the Roper RAB4232DWO model. Like mentioned
below, there are two red wires that connect to a solenoid on the motor that
must be removed and reinstalled which weren’t pictured on the model in the
video. A great video and great help.

appliancemike says:

@iztheterrible there’s a phone number on the video to order the part.

machine !!!! ” Now I know where to go to get some advice!!!! Thanks Joe E.

thanx appliancemike for your insightful video, i saved alot of money by
watching your video and repairing it myself.

Jason Walton says:

Great vid. Wanted to note I was able to get the motor out without
disconnecting the hoses from pump. As I was doing this in the house and I
knew the machine still had water in it

tasuhu says:

Great video! Perfect instructions! Saved us a lot of money and gave us a
great sense of accomplishment!

was my first time working on a washing machine.. GREAT INSTRUCTION.. Again

Thanks appliancemike!! Great vid. A $27 coupler and I’m back in business.
