This model has clips in the left and right hand corners of the control panel. Take a flat blade, preferably plastic putty knife and push it between the plastic corner of he control panel and the top of the machine and than you can flip the console over to reveal the gold hold down clips. Is the machine draining the water and not spinning the clothes tight or is the tub staying full of water? Rule of thumb is if the water drains and no spin the motor coupling is bad, if the machine stays with water in the tub, the lid switch is bad. Good Luck.

Let me get this straight: Spring clips hold this one's control panel down?

The spring clips are similar to the old clips used on Whirlpool's old 29" washers. You push them in with a putty knife and the console flips back. The new Whirlpool built Maytag washers use the same clip set up. Also, they are prone to fall off onto the floor when you press them in, so prepare to look for them.

I have done everything that said for me to do. :embarassed: Now i look at the coupling and they still look new. The connection on the control panel were just dirty and I clean them out with a wire brush. Now when I went to the motor I did see this a rubber piece around it look at the pictures

that rubber piece is a vibration damper and that pin is a shipping pin. have you yanked the pump and motor off and took the coupling off to examine it?

Yes the coupling look new still. Nothing wrong with it.
