Blender Repair- Replacing the Drive Coupling (Whirlpool Part # 9704230)
Hi, it’s Steve from PartSelect. Today we’re
going to show how to change the drive coupler
on your blender. Doesn’t take too long,
don’t need too many tools. Good flat blade
screwdriver; a few minutes; let me show you
how it’s done.
To remove the coupler on this blender all
we need is to take our flat blade screwdriver,
insert it underneath, and raise up on it.
Just keep turning the drive coupler, and raise
Now before we install the new one, you want
to check the threads on that motor shaft,
make sure they’re clean. So just take a
rag and we’ll wipe those out.
Now that we’ve removed all the old metal
filings, clean those out of there, take our
new coupler, and thread it on counter clockwise.
And it just needs to go on hand tight, the
action of the blender causes it to tighten
itself as it’s running. And our job is complete.
Told you that was an easy job. Thanks for
watching, and good luck with your repair.
