It's hard to tell what is wrong (if anything) because you do not tell
us how you initialized A136164. But with the initialization
n = 60; A136164 = ConstantArray[0, 100];
your program certainly works fine.
It is, however, rather inefficient. There are many better ways to
do this, for example:
OCN[n_] := Module[{k = Divisors[n], l}, l = Partition[k, 2, 1];
Union[Flatten[Pick[l, CoprimeQ @@@ l]]]]
will return a list of divisors which have a coprime neighbour, so in
your case:
OCN[60]
{1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}
(your program does not count 1 and 2).
