Question about Whirlpool LSR8433K Top Load Washer
We have a Whirlpool LSR8433KQ clothes washer. It has been having an intermittent problem. Sometimes the drum will not spin after the rinse cycle. You can hear the motor (and gear box, I think) turning but the drum does not. If I rotate the drum by hand alittle, sometimes I hear a "click" and the drum will then rotate.
Sound like a clutch problem? What parts should I order?

SOURCE: grinding noise when drum rotates
may be a foreign object trapped in between the inner and outer tub. Major Disassembly required to split the outer tub. May also be the rear bearing in which case back half will have to be replaced.

This appears the timer is at fault. But check the motor controller too.
