Question about Whirlpool LSB6500P Top Load Washer
My whirlpool washer is about twenty years old and I think it looks like this model but maybe an older version. The spin tub is rotating when the agitator is moving on the wash cycle. It doesn't not move on filling with water. The tub also will not stop rotating when the lid is opened. Please let me know how to repair this old reliable girl!! Thanks...pat
In my experience as a appliance tech a 20 year old whirlpool could be one of the old style washers with a electrical mechanical part on top of the gearcase called a wig wag. If one of the plungers id bent or broken it will cause the washer to agitate and spin at the same time. If its a 27 inch direct drive washer I would have to say it is the gearcase and not the timer. If the timer has some contacts that are gone most times the washer will just fill and then make a humming noise and not run at all. Hope this helps

Sounds more like the brake mechanism on the bowl is worn out. This stops the bowl from spinning quickly during wash & allows for the G forces exerted by the agitator.

LOL kinda wanna keep her alive I see?? an you got your moneys worth or someone did!! Ok your problem is probably the old mechanical timer on the face as the leaf switchs can break and not release as the cam goes past them.I checked with my source at www.repairclinic.com and they didnt list the model so make sure its correct. Timers cost about 75.00 all the way up to 150 bucks for some types. Good luck. You can go to that site to see for yourselfs if you get a good model # or call them.
