I replaced the coupler... The first load I ran it squeeked really loud when it agitated at first and we got a burning rubber smell.  By the time it got to the spin cycle it had stopped squeeking.  I have run two more loads and the squeek and smell seem to have stopped.  Should I worry about the smell?  Thanks :)

Hi,

If the washer is running ok now I would just keep a eye on it.

Hope you find our website helpful.

The video is no longer available but the PDF document was of a great help.

Would be useful if you load a new video.

I will buy the coupler and change it.

Thanks,

I have a similar problem wirth a Kenmore 110 series top load washer. The pdf is corrupt and the video link no longer works.

Any chance somebody can repost the video and/or repair pdf. I would much appreciate it.

BTW, you guys and teh info on this site are great.
