Question about Whirlpool LSR9434PT Top Load Washer
Occasionally this 11 year old washer will make a squealing sound when spinning. Don't think it has a belt, so unsure what could be making the noise.
This problem, or some variation thereof evidently is very common with these Whirlpool Washers! I have same problem. So far, best I have found is at
diagnosis by someone who knows. What William Burk says there makes sense. However, to get to the drive block there's quite a bit of disassembly required. I am stopped because I cannot get the spanner nut off. Hope this gives you some help toward finding a more comprehensive answer

There is indeed a drive belt to the imperial 70. Problem more likely is in the 'wig-wag' unit that engages and disengages the spin clutch and the agitator drive

SOURCE: washer does not turn or spins
the pumps and motor pullys go bad on those.tip washer back against wall and inspect there.motor pulley melts ,the pump pulley breaks loose from its spot welds and then will rub metal to metal.when ordering parts replace belt too if damaged.if worn wont get a good spin and then dryer has to work over time.[power bill up.up,up.thanks for using fixya.God bless,tom

It sounds like the agitator teeth, that are plastic, are worn out. To check this, take the agitator cap off with a strong knife or flat-head screw driver, and check the circular teeth inside, to see if they are worn out. These plastic teeth are the agitator part of the washer, where as the spinning part is a metal set of teeth, at the bottom of the agitator. You see the metal teeth, when you take the agitator completely out. You will have to replace the agitator if the teeth are worn out.
