(A) Set-up
1) The inner bowl is supported by (2) heavy springs at the top, plus (2) telescopic shock absorbers beneath the bowl.

(B) Observed Problem
1) Inner bowl was missaligned, causing out of balance knocking & banging, also drive belt was squealing from misalignment.

(C) Remedy:
1) Disconnect power from outlet.
2) Remove (4) screws from back plate, remove back plate.
3) Bowl is suspended on (2) heavy springs from top, and (2) telescopic shock absorbers below bowl.
4) Inspection showed plastic pin retaining shock absorber end to frame had fallen out.
5) Place old carpet or whatever on floor, invert washing machine.
6) Re-align end of shock absorber into housing piece.
7) Re-insert plastic pin (about 2 inches long x 1/2 inch diameter) securely into place.
8) Re-assemble.

Also:
a) It could be one of the top springs as per (B)1 above may have broken or become loose.
b) In this case the top cover plate is easily removed from machine by removing (2) screws at the rear top of cover.
This gives access to the (2) heavy springs, which are easily repaired.


Note:
Sometimes the machine will not re-start again following out of balance problems.
1) Turn power off again, re-boot like computer.
2) There is also a re-boot procedure similar to Alt+Ctrl+Del on computer.
3) Use three buttons simulateously, Start+spin+option buttons or similar.
4) I fiddled with these until all lights lit up, then after a while the machine worked satsifactorily.

Cheers

If it fell between the bole and the housing the cover will have to be removed. if it can be turned upside down it may fall out. If it is inside the bole it may be under the agertater or or in the water pump housing.

Money fell under the spinner


I take it that you mean that there is monetary coin or coins stuck between the Wash Bowl and the Spin Bowl. If the diameter of the coinage is greater than the Wash Bowl outlet, the coins will never find their way to the emptying pump of the machine, and will continue to rattle around inside. However any of the coins can enter the Wash Bowl outlet this could result in the water pump becoming jammed or damaged requiring replacement. I have solved this problem by removing the top of the machine (HOB) above the washbowl then completely removing the shroud over the Wash Bowl...then replacing the top of the machine firmly. By then turning the machine upside down, the coins will drop out and can be retrieved. Finish the job by returning the machine to the upright position.

Washing machine not spinning


The pin is a shipping pin and serves no purpose after the machine is set up. These machines comes with a plastic strap through the back panel to hold components in place for shipping. There are plastic cups that the pins fall into after the strap is pulled.
Ignore the pin.
Your no spin problem is a stripped out direct drive coupling between the motor and transmission.
It is a easy fix.
Use the attached video as reference to change out the part.

Transmission problem of a washer Whirlpool model LXR7244JQO


Good morning.
The problem lays in the transmission. From outside when you turn the universal (connector) the bowl with the brakes don't turn with the main shaft. When you open the transmission, remove the clip of the big plastic gear. After you lift up the plastic gear you will notice that one or two of the plastic parts are worn down. By replacing you will solve the problem.
