My whirlpool top loader extra large washing macine


Hi,

Many late model washing machines use a direct-drive system to agitate and spin. They don't use belts or pressure wheels to transfer power and motion from the motor to the transmission. The motor is coupled directly to the transmission. If the motor is running and there is no agitation or spinning of the tub, the culprit is usually a plastic coupling between the motor and transmission or the transmission itself.

Whirlpool top loader washer will not spin


Could be one of several different things depending on the age and model. If its less than 10 years old and is a top load washer its probably a motor coupling (connects the motor to the transmission kinda like a belt) or lid switch. If the water is draining out but the washer is not spinning its probably the motor coupling. If it still has water in it and won't spin, its probably the lid switch. If your washer is a front loader there could be several things going on. Hope that helps.

I have a Kenmore top load washer model 20692. The washer won't drain and whenever the washer is supposed to turn all I hear is a hum. What could be the problem and is it worth fixing in a 10 year old...


Hi,
Sounds like you have multiple problems...you are right... probably not worth fixing...
Look at the front loaders... they use way less water and are more gentile on your clothing...

Why my whirlpool washing machine wont spin model # LXR5432KQ0


If this is a Whirlpool manufactured TOP LOADER washing machine, a no spin problem can have several causes. Most commonly, this is caused by either a lid switch malfunction or a broken motor coupling. The following link explains how you can diagnose the problem and repair it yourself:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3965207-whirlpool_top_loader_no_spin_problem

Read through the link provided and let me know if you have any questions. I have included parts resources and instructions on how to replace each part as well.

The part number for a replacement lid switch is 3949247. The motor coupling part number is 285753A.

If you have questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.
